Ramble.


I have been slowly losing the use of my extensions. My fingers, my toes, up to my arms and my legs. They just go numb, I have been losing strength in them as well. My vision is turning into a fish eye lens, you know the kind that every skate photo is taken with.

I went to the doctor, because my arms have been turning to mush more aggressively these days, I figured it was a pinched nerve. I told my doctor of the ailments and she told me I would have to wear a cloth neck collar while I slept. I laughed and told her of my Nana, and we both laughed at the hilarity of it all. Something was wrong with my neck. hahahahaha.

"So, I guess that explains the lose of sensation in my feet as well?"

Her smile dropped immediately, she stumbled and stretched her mouth out again. My doctor turned away from me and started arranging things on her desk.

"We can get through this, we can totally deal with this." she never looked at me once.
"We have to get you in to the neurologist. Uhm, okay, go for some blood work and then we will make the appointment. Wait, no, we have to make the appointment right away. This is fine."

My doctor panicked.
My doctor panicked, and then she asked me how old I was, and then she told me it was probably a vitamin deficiency, and that I should not worry.

How am I not supposed to worry?

Have you ever seen your doctor panic over your symptoms? It totally sucks.

Hey Tifilis, she did not give me any idea what it is. I started to look into it myself, but was coming up with brain tumor and MS, so I stopped looking. I am doing reasonably well all things considered. My dark and twisted sense of humor has kicked in and the jokes are apparently. I have even come up with new pick up lines. Hope you are well and i miss you ton-o-tons.

Truth be told, I think it there is a very good explanation for all of this. We are a family of freaks. I too am experiencing a loss of feeling, but it is mostly in my left arm as I sit at the computer. And let's not forget that mom just experienced a fall from a porch, resulting in a grapefruit sized bump in her back/bottom, originally black in colour, said to be old, dead blood. Yet they can't drain it as it would get infected. Again, try not to distress too much. We are freaks.
I hope that makes you feel better.

Well, yes, it actually does make me feel better, sort of. Is Mom okay? Are they doing anything to help? Why don't you freaks return my phone calls? Except not tonite, I am hella sick. Explosivly you may say. Oh yes, I am aging well.

The loss of feeling in your arm, does it happen at night as well? Cause I think I initially got your diagnosis. Something is up with your neck. You need a soft collar, a "water pillow???", and perhaps a chiropractor. At least that is what I am told. You kids ought to call me tomorrow evening, if you ever get the power to do so.

Wait. What day is tomorrow? If by "tomorrow" you mean today (Thursday 14th) then done & done.
