Whether er not 2 he still has 2 go inevetibly so lol

Welp, no matter what the weather is doing he must drive across the 4 corners 3 times a week now like it is a job so………without hesitation!…it’s a job {she} says…an da’ satisfaction comes in knowing ya made it home alive

“one more day”

Although i do not earn $$$ i simply earn life by being able to accomplish going to my dialysis….My arm is sore! a lot…an  Sumtimes i becomes light headed!….(not good) is where it is good when {SHE} sumtimes takes the wheel! lol….i can only hope anyhow…she will be takin’ the wheel a lot in the future!…

     I think i need a car like the airplane i used to fly… one that has 2 sets of controls or yeah like my trike; where either person on board can take control of the aircraft….it would be pert kewl…….

     Have thought a lot how to design such a car in the garage in the spare time sumday ..

sumday if i got the time…i have the car…jest need the time an the $ for the parts lol…oh! an the health also?…..

   ~~~~White knucklin it! river on da’ right road on da’ left~~~~

 

we shall see what i am capable of doing in the near future…….would be a fun projekt that will prolly never happen anyhew now…although it would be jest the ticket an helpful cure for a simple problem 4 a guy like me..with occasional…..{LATHARGY}

..So that way if i were driving with {her} or anyone else, when it came upon me… instead of me having to pull over an take a break if i were alone…{she} could jest take over an get us to our destination safely!………..

…..

I am enjoying every 130 mile round trip i take to Durango more an more in a way!…i am forced to get out an see the world a bit and to be a part of it instead of laying in pain at home…it is becoming like a 3 day a week job & it is helping me feel better also……..i no longer wake up with morning sickness as often as i used to it used to happen a lot!…kicked this 60 yr old guys arse down a bit it did…..polycystic kidney disease an dialysis..now i seem to be eternally tired an worn out…..whew!..

..But what i do so possibly think is? I have to question how long i can …not only afford to but …..simply physically be able to keep on keepin’ on driving myself?…. that’ll be the day huh…when king driver has to be driven a lot 😦 So, it’s on with the dialysis 3 times a week for life..wheew what a trip really….Rain – Snow – er shine..is a must do program now that i cannot escape, and now retired guy here cannot retire ever!  it is what it is! thats bout it!…a new full-time JOB fer’ LIFE!..

…..

Never thought my life would end up this way really …

    So, anyhow in the future i see {her} kicking my ass into shape again ..and also being my right arm..an doing some of the driving….i pray {wait} lol bout this one a lot these days…cuz i know i am aging …one day @ a time lol …an jest have to learn how to rely on others for help @ i have been the last couple of months……without i guess…i would simply die within weeks the doctors say….

a FISTULAGRAM or a PlastiOgram

BELIEVE IT ER NOT!:)well; it’s true an it hurtz 2  😦 geez….An Whats a FISTULAGRAM or a PlastiOgram?

……..it be bout like being hit in the arm by this train! lol

…………

..da’ before dialysis investigatation breakfast 8:00 am choo-choo time.

The Durango Silverton Daily line!.

COOL! ya say well not so cool 2 me dis past week…….an stuff! jest keepsa’ happening bout everything but my heart is broken now…an that’s a gewd thing :)……. ❤ an i ate a good breakfast an watched the train roll out of town!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well; a fistulagram or a plastiogram..is another vein mapping lewk at my arm..where they inject dye into …an inspect all the damage an see if i have collapsed blood vessels or blood clots that are not healing!….oh did i say that it was also painful…and i needed a driver an could not drive for 24 ……..jeezzzzzzzzzzzz.

well the head nurse i had today was jest awesome..an i am sure i oput a smile on her face for the day!..i begged the doc to let me take her home with me an she’d be my driver …an medicare would pay for it but he wasn’t buying it lol..she jest laughed! was werth the taunt! haha……so this awesome young lady well, she stuck with me frum beginning to end an made all the diff in the world, i was venturing into..a werld of pain an sensations i hadn’t evr felt whew! i will forevr be grateful for her kind an awesome an highly skilled services…………….wow she stuck me jest fine today………in the other arm that doesn’t even have the fistula.she did so awesome TWICE ……..once in da upper an a main one down by wrist for the IV! 🙂 ……
So, bruised up an bandaged up again i am ……….but the bruises are frum last saturday ..not today!…today i managed right fine.but my arm is like real heavY! pain level is bout a 6 .not as bad as it was for the last week recovering frum the infiltrations ….out of 14 dialysis days…i have had 11 days of it werking …an 3 fails………..so lets see if after this heals an i go back to dialysis they will do better next time round with me…….when i go back to my 3 days a week routime..
This week i meet with the transplant services team an see what i have to do to qualify for a transplant! we shall see……i will prolly need dental werk an skin problems cured by then they say ….so another we shall see….an next week or so i get to meet the gurls with the knives lol…..who want to cut me up in 5 places for basil cell skin cancers……..so much fun….an now my nissan blows a power steering belt an runs hot now an i have to fix.an my truck is still broke also….frum a collision with an elk on night at 55 mph!…So, if i feel like it i will werk on it the next few days.an hopefully get a back-up gong here for transportation!..My live donor is all for it an we are of similar genetics so i believe it will possibly werk..another we shall see deal…an coming up with the $$$ to get her to denver etc etc whan the time arrives an afford her the meds necessary to make it all compatable an also me 2 the meds are something we might not be able to afford without a donate er fund me page..another we shall see huh!

Whats Infiltration i was asked

welp today i was infiltrated for the second time in 10 days of dialysis treatments…totally sucks…had to go home without being dialysised…..


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well whats infiltration i was asked…..since this has happened twice to me ..i have been INFILTRATED an was not able to get my dialysis done…an have a seriously bruised up arm 😦 is what it is 😦 oh well. tryin to keep sunny side up here 🙂

cheers frum da’ Q

🙂 🙂 🙂

Vascular access is the circulatory site that makes the connection between the patient’s circulation and the hemodialysis machine possible. Blood is pulled out of the body by the blood pump through the vascular access. The pump will then force the blood through the dialyzer and back to the patient’s bloodstream.

(A needle infiltration occurs when the needle dislodges from inside the vascular access during cannulation or during the dialysis treatment itself.)

Cannulation is the insertion of a needle cannula into a blood vessel to drain blood or administer blood back into circulation. When the patient has an infiltration, blood may leak outside the access into the surrounding tissues. Because of this, swelling and pain may be felt around the area. While the patient’s access will continue to function, having an infiltration will cause a lot of discomfort. It may become bruised, swollen and the area may feel firm to touch. There are two basic types of vascular accesses that need to be cared for by a dialysis technician. Each of which can become infiltrated. While both have their own strengths and weaknesses, the type to be used will always be patient-dependent.

The Arterial-Venous (AV) Fistula – The AV fistula uses the patient’s native vein and artery to make a connection. A fistula is usually situated in the patient’s upper or lower arm. When the link is made, the artery’s higher pressure pushes blood into the vein. After a few months, the vein will become larger and its walls will become thicker. The blood from these vessels can then be used for dialysis. The fistula normally matures in about 4-6 weeks. When this happens, it will now be possible to insert two needles for treatment. One needle will be used to pull blood from the patient’s body through the dialysis tubing. The blood will then flow through the dialyzer, filtering it in the process. Clean blood will be returned to the patient’s body through the second needle. The AV fistula is the most popular type of internal vascular access for hemodialysis. Since it doesn’t utilize foreign material to make, it is less likely to become infected or clotted. It is also more flexible because it is made of native tissues. When well-cared for by a dialysis technician, the AV fistula will provide the patient with better dialysis, resulting to better prognoses. Unfortunately, there are still risks involved. If a fistula may not develop successfully, a graft will then be utilized. or a direct catheder to the chest! permanently!

CONCLUSION:

Needle infiltration of fistulae is more common in older patients and with new fistula. These infiltrations result in numerous procedures, as well as prolongation of catheter dependence for more than 3 months

The furst time this happened to me was when they could not re-insert the needle that had slipped out! an today well, was when they were trying to insert the first one into the fistula!…

an secondary conclusion is an I WISH LOL>>>>>PIC!

A Sabatical Sunday

Twas a sunday sabaticle for like 2 weeks plus now..
Indeed…..an well not a lota activity at all at my site since i was gone…

Ever now an again someone re-blogsd my stuff or someone will re write something i have written lol also…an ever now an again i will get a day where i get hundreds of web views….an then another day where web page views are rarely read by anyone at all….is a trip how the web werks an also how people werk..who cares bout who etc etc….
Seems as when i post a lot i get a lotta traffic …but well the last couple weeks i have not had internet!….and i am now very busy…jest attempting to SURVIVE!…yes survive…..
In order for me to survive now i have to do kidney dialysis 3 times a week now…if not they say sure thing i will die….so i have been on this mission for the past couple of weeks…an is quite the routine…Since my dialysis machine is an hour plus away….I have to drive 130 miles every other day to be able to accomplish this…GAS alone is like killing me now 😦 financially…i am not a rich person an do not charge for my photos or the internet i have…. am thinking a fundme site might be apprapo in this kinna situation …now the medications they are going to give me are going to cost me more than i can afford!…Is a trip ….they say ..well give ya dialysis an even a new kidney…but well, u have to pay for transportation an getting the donor to ya etc etc an even pay fopr the expensive meds to take to make ya solvent an match when the operation is done…so what is a poor guy supposed to do to make that happen…i am not really to sure cept i need to be able to accomplish that or i well die soon…..is all there is to it…..I can’t be living on the edge of life for the rest of my life even though i live on the edge literally! lool…….HAH so only in america huh! land of the free……….well….I have not freedom any more…i am locked into the medical dialysis system till i get a new kidney or i die…so i believe i shell start a fundme website for my kidney werld…4 WHATEVR IT COULD BE WERTH..YA NEVER KNOW IS ALL I KNOW……but what i do know an realise is that time is well….all anyone ever has got …..HOWMUCH? no one really knows……but in my werld i want to get as much time out of life as i possibly can!…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and the whole world changed overnight, has been quite a journey for all those old enuff to know…an remember the days of the black an white tv an tv antennas strung out all over the world on everyone’s houses…I saw it coming in the back of my mind an i did not invest? well got to let that go now…an let all the investments that i did have once upon a time also go..the successess that became a failure.
My problem is i out spend myself…. i was taught to do that ever since a kid…ok heres how the system werks..an ya borrow… got my furst real bank loan when i was like 13 an i was off an running lol…FOR MY FURST CAR A VOLKSWAGEN BUG I GOT FOR 400 BUCKS.
well many years later an i sit here an type as fast as i can think…but i do cheat i lewk at the keys…so anyhow..a lot of my errors in language that have become part of my particular language ..the language of the twisted Q well, comes frum where the keys are on the keyboard an jest went frum there once upon a time..lol
Back to that! yep ; so go with the flow..what a hard thing to do in todays fast paced werld, is amazing at how fast everything really does go…
Back; to the point …this internet thing, well is pert amazing thing that has happened in my lifetime an changed everything i ever thought bout destiny time an space also..in so many many ways…

Projekts galore but lewk at da happy place without boundries 🙂

The internet has brought me multitudes of acquaintances – good – bad – indifferent – ugly- an beautiful also; have quite a variety of people I would have never met without the net.
Because of the net i have had both good an bad things happen over the years…lol i owned a couple of domain names once upon a time that i gave up an well, years later became a hit. So ya never know..i had no clue simple words like that would make me rich?..well live an learn? i’m the kind of learn by fail a lot…is how i got to be good at riding my bike etc etc an flying etc etc is by failing, when ya do ya remember not to do that again an move forward without hesitation to get a better grip on whatevr it is ya are doin’….point is sumtimes repetition is is best left alone, thata way ya don’t keep learnin’ the wrong things over an over ? right, well an old man jimmy weldon once told me that ..(he was the voice of the little yeller duck once upon a time in cartoons, yaky-do-little, the duck that couldn’t find his mama:)  he used to give motivational speeches at seminars etc etc……anyhow. he said..move forward without hesitation…was his motto an also now mine to this very day…on the side cover of my motorcycle in chinese LOL the characters are kewl lewkin what can i say..it means moving forward without hesitation!…an the other side cover on the other side means infinity!….
Anyhow ..the internet has taken me to far lands, taken me to peru a few years back…an thats when i guess ya would say i found MYSELf an found out who i really was, an has ben a long journey evr since to try to heal the past in my body, havin a hard time with the pkd thing though it is hereditary an in the genetics,,,,an well is a terminal disease, an i have had a hard time coming to grips with that a lot over the past few years also..is what it is…life is terminal indeed…I jest want to extend mine a bit! Is all!
Anyhow The point of this blog is that i would not even be sitting right where i am right now if not for the internet!..an Dr. Royal Rife….In so many many ways it changed my destiny an fates etc etc …an changed my life, also has extended it …Because, ..it is because of this internet thing well, I have met a person that well, helps me emotionally an spiritually to stay alive an gives me something to look forward to every day…so for that I thank the internet…an pomp an circumstance an my higher power knowing what is right an correct an somehow sending me to this person….is perty amazing how the connections have happened over the years indeed because of this thing called the INTERNET or INTRANET! Q is ❤ 🙂  In love again because of he internet!…. 🙂

Anyhow right now, it appears it’s a rigged system to make evry0ne blame it on themselves an be in fear it is i tell ya…why that is i am not sure but is very prevalent in this werld we live in…so may thieves an liars etc etc…ya don’t really know who ya can trust these days…so many scams an versions of scams for $ also an so many people getting ripped off all the time cuz they are too dumb to know any better sorry to say but that is a fact…Phishing scams are the werst an people have to be very aware of that an malware also…viruses not so much anymore though….my rule there is if ya don’t want the virus don’t invite it in …Like the damn pneumonia shot they gave me that gave me the shit wtf?….an they want to give me a flu shot! lol…yeah lets see how tough ya are bud..well, it would prolly kill a guy like me now. So flu shots out of the question for this guy!

Back to the internet!….when the human mind catches up with quantum teck…then is when we will see lotsa overnight changes also, an that is not to distant in the future, as the Q here does know The matrix of the mind is pert much unexplored by most people! true story…how many people do u know are travelers, an play with in that sphere called the matrix – an yes very similar to the movies version!….So anyhow…thanks to the internet an Dr.Royal rife…i am here today to be able to type whatver it is i am about to type to ya here!…..an whats really weird bout it is in the end its so much about just remaining on the right frequency range for that which one is doing in life to make it happen….Survival for a while longer is my key as of late; although i know my time is limited if i do not get on dialysis soon and of also get a new used kidney soon also…any way i lewk at it i am a goner soon enuff…An well I love lIfe an Love who i have become also…cept for this dis-ease PKD..totally sucks…very few readers know what i am talking bout cuz it is a rare renal disease…but is horrendously painful …an not a fun way to pass the time after ur 45 er so….by the time ur 60 like me it has either kicked ur ass or ur dead, unless ya are on dialysis..or got a new kidney : an that might give me another 10 er so if i am lucky enuff 🙂
So; Thats totally amazing to me how destiny an time bends an things that were or could have been are not etc etc…i could write a book of stories bout how one drunk night changed the destiny an fate of everything that ever happened to me since, wow…but it did…an how being late by one minute changed everything once upon a time, or bout how being in the wrong place at the wrong time a lot gets one in trouble, another book to write there lol…i could spend the next 20 writing for fun i do so believe if the H.P. will jest allow that to happen…..

so i do not know how it will all come about really….lucky i am only moderately thousands in debt an owe less than 20, grand on my house! yeahaa…hoping i live to see the day when i get it paid off!.my mortgage..jeez..(Mortgage = death note) yep I guess huh!.is a struggle every month with this PKD thing going on now ….It has been like i have had the flu bout every 2 weeks for the past 7 er 8 years solid..truly sucks …comes an goes ya have ur good days an ya have ur bad….is not a fun cycle to get wrapped up in but is what it is…cuz the kidneys do not filter properly…well my creatinine level is 8.0 now has doubled in the last year an they usually have ya on dialysis before it gets to the point mine is at now….i am poisoned pert bad! so to speak…trying to keep it as clear as possible i am…wish i could jest become where i could live on water an air alone that’d be cool…but won’t happen….anyhow off subjekt now…is easy to do …but back to the point is what i hope to get or acquire because of the internet! who knows might even be a new kidney!….so only time will tell….
Just to keep my friends round the world bout 6 weeks later they can start dialysis to get my systems cleaned up….not sure how i am going to handle it financially to drive to durango 60 miles away 3 times a week for the next 6 months er what not without the income to support that!? so…………….don’t have a clue what the future will behold …but do know i am gettin tired of typing this an ur prolly gettin’ tired of readin’ me today if u subscribe to me by mail sorry for the long post-it…but i’m not really…..sorry is such a dreadful word ain’t it yep…got to stop using it…i do!

Watz a Fistula? Q is asked

DA’ FISTULA PIC!..1st access failed..so second is where it is at..read on for more info…….

wats a fistula they say an ask to me all the time;? heres an explanation @ best @ possible for yaz..I also have been doing lotsa research…So frum what i have learnt bout my fistula is this…# 1 it hurts like a s.o.b. right now. But i will get over it eventually it will become part of my body…..but has only been a few days after the new setup has been done to my artery an my vein structure! . ….this is how it werks ….

A fistula is what your vascular surgeon constructs by “joining an artery to a vein”.


It keeps a direct opening to your veins. This allows an even greater amount of blood to pass through the vein and allows your dialysis to proceed efficiently. In the weeks after surgery, the fistula begins to mature. The vein increases in size and may look like a cord under your skin. The whole process of maturation, which is a beneficial feature that permits the blood flow to increase in the fistula, typically takes 3 to 6 months. Some fistulas may take as long as a year or more to develop fully, but this is unusual. Once matured, a fistula should be large and strong enough for dialysis technicians and nurses to insert the large dialysis needles easily. If it fails to mature in a reasonable period of time, however, you may need another fistula….hopefully that’s not the case for mikey here….

To perform the surgery, your physician joins a large vein under the skin to an artery nearby. The physician divides your vein and sews it to an opening made in the side of the artery. As a result, the blood flows down the arteries into the hand, as usual, and also some of this faster moving blood flows into the veins that lead back to your heart. The blood that normally traveled in your divided vein goes back to the heart through other veins, and there is usually plenty of blood remaining in your artery to supply your hand. Is why my left hand is tingling a lot an numb still in the fingers cuz some circulation has been robbed i guess….doc says it is not enuff to matter ..so okay…

Hemodialysis cleans blood by removing it from the body and passing it through a dialyzer, or artificial kidney. The dialyzer is a filter with two parts: one for blood and another for dialysis fluid, called dialysate. The filter between these two parts has very small pores, allowing some tiny particles to pass through. The particles that are filtered include the toxins that need to be removed from the body such as urea, creatinine and potassium, while larger blood cells and protein the body needs cannot pass through. The filtered blood is then returned to the body.

The process of removing blood from the body, filtering it and returning it takes time. Hemodialysis treatment usually takes three to five hours and is repeated three times a week.

The type of access a person has is important for getting the best dialysis possible. There are three types of access: catheter, arteriovenous (AV) graft and arteriovenous (AV) fistula..and well i got the fistula in my left arm…They were going to put it i by my wrist but after the furst incesion the main vein collapsed an they had to move the spot toinside my elbow….

Arteriovenous (AV) fistula for hemodialysis

A fistula used for hemodialysis is a direct connection of an artery to a vein. Once the fistula is created it is a natural part of the body. This is the preferred type of access because once the fistula properly matures and gets bigger and stronger; it provides an access with good blood flow that can last for decades. Yeahaa lol…. After the fistula is surgically created, it can take weeks to months before the fistula matures and is ready to be used for hemodialysis. People with kidney disease can do exercises including squeezing a rubber ball to strengthen the fistula before use.
Fistula — the gold standard access…they gave me a kidney to squeeze…an said it was okay to excercize my wrist with the clutch lever on morotcycle ..so kewl 🙂 @ least sumptin is werkin right…

The National Kidney Foundation (NKF), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), DaVita Patient Citizens (DPC) and other organizations and experts generally agree that fistulas are the best type of vascular access. Low rates of complications, clotting and infection all contribute to the fistula’s reputation as the “gold standard” of vascular access.

Dialysis experts also generally agree that the safest and longest lasting of the access types is the AV fistula. Because a fistula is made by connecting a vein to an artery, the vein becomes bigger allowing for increased blood flow. The fistula is created from natural parts of the body and can be repeatedly “stuck” to perform hemodialysis treatments.

A fistula is the “gold standard” because:

It has a lower risk of infection than grafts or catheters
It has a lower tendency to clot than grafts or catheters
It allows for greater blood flow, increasing the effectiveness of hemodialysis as well as reducing treatment time
It stays functional for longer than other access types; in some cases a well-formed fistula can last for decades
Fistulas are usually less expensive to maintain than synthetic accesses

While the AV fistula is the preferred access, there are some people who are unable to have a fistula. If the vascular system is greatly compromised, a fistula may not be attempted. Some people have had fistulas surgically created, but the fistula never matured; therefore, could not be used. Some of the drawbacks of fistulas are:

A bulge at the access site that some people feel is unattractive, well no matter 2 me…
Taking several months to mature…okay as long as it werks…
Sometimes never maturing at all…praying for mine to mature properly! is all i can do an by the looks an feel of it it is progressing jest fine.

so this is supposed to be much better than the old skewl method used in the 70’s..catheters an older teck in machinery also ..the dialysis units themselves are light years above the ones of the 80’s etc etc…..

the next 4-6 weeks are weeks for healing 4 me 🙂 an affirmation for me…an Prayers that my fistula keeps functioning properly an matures as it is supposed to…typing on the keyboard here is quite a werkout for the left arm really…so i have to take it bit at a time right now ..little steps..yeah baby steps..

also, is a matter of somehow pulling together the resources i need to fix my transportation an set up an gear up my life for trips 3 times a week 120 miles round trip when that time comes….@ soon as the fistula is healed …an ready to use….something like the pic below will be my home 3 times a week 4 hrs plus each visit…Guess i will get a lotta reading done! and or spend those 4 hours in lala land as my meditation time 3 times a week 🙂 however it be will be something i have to do ..do doubt about it an no fail…? is for me is how to get to there frum here is all…when everything takes cash an ya live on a limited income an ya have sold most evrything ya can that would get ya by into the future…….
To check see that my fistula is werking properly i have to check a few times a day to make sure i can feel the “THRILL” lol …the pulse ya can feel in the fistula …lets ya know it is werking properly…is weird feeling ur heartbeat as a vib in ur left arm…an they call it the “THRILL?” listening to ur own beat…wunder what doc came up with calling it that…..

Anyhow is what it is… I am healing frum ..having the fistula Installed…..and am looking forward to the day actually when i can plug in an start getting my blood filtered properly! once again…an getting back to feeling “normal” whatevr that is ..been a lotta years lol…so the next 6 weeks is about staying alive without having my blood filered an having the toxins build up as they do evr so often…over an over it has been happening for years,, an even though my motto is crashing is not an option? well i crash evr so often cuz my body gets finally toxic an i go down for the count till they stabalize my blood again ussually with a jar er 2 of saline.. because i get also de hydrated …when i crash..an my bp goes sky high……docs are trippin though ..cuz i am able to keep a grip now on my B.P> Blood pressure…which has been in the dangerous level for quite some time..well, i have stabalized it to almost normal…last reading the other day was 130 over 70..bout time …usually i am in the 140’s to the 90 or more @ a norm…….so is good for me to get it down …

Okay take care everyone…Hope this article here was educational to ya if ya never knew what a fistula was….thats what the Q is going thru.whoo hoo…..yeahaa huh! .such @ life .HA!….
PS: THERE ARE many different kinds of kindey malfunctions an disease…the kind i have affects approximately 1 in 600,000 people….so is not that common..but world wide that adds up to a lotta people suffering like me to the same degree or werse…so my prayers for all of them for whatevr its werth ..still everyone goes PKD WHAT never heard of it?….wow is all i can say…jest another day …been kickin my arse down for over 10 years now it has been ..this PKD!…
Next great adventure is i gotta go get a brainscan mri to check see if i have any unruptured anuyersisms …which i am thinking of opting out of because well if i did have any unruptured ones i would have head aches like my dad did…which i did not have? so I don’t think i need to get radiated thata way unless there is a problem..cuz the radiation itself could even cause a prob…when they say that 60% of all cancers of the 20th century exist because of abnormal radiation like X-rays inapproitely directed etc etc…so this one will be ? A question in the mind of Q for the future…
Right now time to heal an get better! an make this fistula thing werk ..an help the “team” they are going to assemble for em to implant a new kidney when the time can come …a few years over due they say they are for me but they are going to go for it anyhow…since now i have the Medicare to pay for it …ha all bout $$$$ yeah right they wouldn’t help me years ago cuz i had no insurance or medicare…but my doc did help me get on disability which took years ..but that barely covers living expenses…so what does one do asks the Q..hm? will keep ya posted! Namaste’ …an over an out till then…………………

Know thyself – cuz Ya Never Know!

moving-forward
  So whats the point he said she said??? there are 2 many points to this subjekT! lol.
although it is mostly bout what one loves…whatevr that is!…

Ten years ago i loved what i thought was an angel ? only to find out after months that the angel loved the devil more than life itself…what do i mean buy the devil..”D evil” well to me definition of EVIL is simply ..anything that is opposite to LIVE in thinking..an well the “devil;” lol..has to be …against lived.or da’ live…….

then 3 years laters the same kind of scenario trips up my life to no end….by another so-called angel, one i have a hard time forgiving for not being an honest human an taking me for Time, energy, money, direction and sending me into a downward spiral emotionally for years! 😦 Yeah that was love ……I am still today at this moment paying for that wunderful adventure….guess i was cheap entertainment 4 a year o the internet, an a few months sex for her…whatevr is all i can say now…cuz i have to accept that there are people who are against live….an all out for themselves in evry way? money wise though being the most important to these kinda lovers it is more important than all the fears that they behold in life$$$$…..so much for angels…..
So, point of this is one thing . “YA NEVER KNOW” bout anything or anybody really truly.i did not choose for them to be selfish or greedy or to rip me off for cash an time an life an emotions whatever 4?..or do ya bout them?..? or do we jest have to make better choices? wtf? i do not know what the answer is but my present relationship does not exhibit or even come close to or have any tendencies to be against live…an definitely is not against lived, because her lived is what makes her that person that she is today!…..

well one in many millions to me my lady is…nothing of the sort or kind against live…wtf for she says…why be against ur life? an if ya are well ur close to suicide…i guess…anyhow an against live Evil…why be that now when what we have lived brought us to be who we are today? why join up with the “devil” against lived an whom is Evil? …..what on earth for really? $$$$$ in the end with these greedy selfish people…they do not care what the causal effects of their taking frum u for their own personal benefit…very cold an self centered in my book of life ..unto death when we part! yep!…as they walk round talking bout how they notice all the self centered people etc etc? like wtf..Hippocratic to the max i see in so many people these days…hurting on others? finding humor in it an then saying they are innocent in all their false judgements an taking frum ya?…

BACK 2 the POINT! YA NEVER KNOW!….I simply want to live an love …simple right…..LIFE!

what is it ya never know…well, lotsa things in this life of pomp an circumstance, good choices vs. bad etc etc fate er destiny? which is it an why? YA WILL PROLLY never know where ya come frum really….other than jest one thing really …love an desire to live! that’s bout it!…other than that ya prolly will never know ? when fate ? destiny? luck bad er good? or pomp or circumstance by being in the wrong place at the wrong time??? Fact; some things an people in my life will be part of my infinity 4 one reason er another!

WELL? YA NEVR KNOW …BOUT ANY OF THAT IT JEST IS WHAT IT IS AN WILL BE WHAT IT IS ALSO? MY point is a LOT OF IT IS SIMPLY ABOUT CHOICE; why should human being be so inconsiderate to others as to take a child of theirs away frum them an not ever let that child see them after 6 years of life? moving to another part of the state? an disappear…but on the back side of life stalk ya for $$$?.an reprogram the child with nonsense!….why would sumeone go nuts an kill my lady and her father an rape her an steal car an money an drive off 500 miles away to then kill a group of 4 in a campground ???wtf? then when they find this guy an pull him over he puts his cig out in the middle of his forehead? before they take him off to jail? nope he wasn’t drunk or on drugs either ..jest a crazy who should not have been let out on parole but was an ex-murder who should have never been let out? as far as i am concerned in the furst place ..system failure to me…an welp is bout it..the whole good system is collapsing upon itself cuza the bad? is a trip how society as a whole don’t want to get a grip an get along, truly sad really……so wtf is what i am saying to U today is ya NEVER KNOW when shit will or can happen in ur life…My experience though is that if ya fear the crazy people they will be attracted to ya…so HAVE NO FEAR! ..most important though is one has to KNOW THYSELF an be able to get a grip when crazy shit does happen in their life…….
Why would someone intoxicated to the max choose to take a drive with the 4 year old in the car to the races! lol. such alcoholic stupity auctually!..@ well @ i know by personal experience an everyones is different because of choices of habits..once again i choose today LOVE instead of fear!..(an alcoholism).(escapisms) an ism’s in general!
but really ! Ya NEVER KNOW ..either after the habits ya might choose in life what will become of it or because of the HABIT! everything bout ya changes 4 ever…cosmic cosmology in a sense to me is where one recognizes that happening in their life! that is to be lived! once ya turn round ur perception and analysis an stop being a selfish human as the doers that hurt ya well, ya see the HABITS one chooses are of most important to their very own existence an life itself! in all and every ways everything is bout HABIT! an choosing the correct ones…ya only got so much room in ur brain an so much time in ur life so depending upon the HABITS u choose is what will become the outcome in this standpoint alone…..

So on that note well, i have in my lifetime learned to choose certain habits that were good for me rather than badhabits that were good for me rather than bad! habits like my addiction to flying, driving, Riding an experiencing FUN things….an doing my photography,..to old to scare the shit out of myself an rock climb though lol…been there done that badge..an i got hurt more than once doing it…so having an addictive personality an having healthy habits is a good thing! in Q’s book of life….over the years i have traded my BAD habits for so called better or gooder habits lol…as a child would say!…an for that fact i am grateful ..i have chosen to not disengage frum my personal reality anymore..which i did every day 4 about 26 years as a functioning alcoholic an businessman in the worlds workforce…if i would have continued that HABIT of drinking i would have killed my self or another doing it …having to come to terms with that an quit was hard..very hard…but well, i am alive today because i do not drink..an as a result i can still fly my ultralight or drive my car or ryde my motorcycle to my hearts delight @ long @ i don’t get sick over my latest adventure with dis-ease an the bodys malfunction.my (PKD)..so is a dna flip and a genetic flaw they say that causes mine…as with many debilitating diseases, they are all jest a genetic flip…with different causes of symptom in different places based upon the flip…for 10 years now i have had my kidneys failing in a bad way an knew it ..they the kidneys in my abdomen are bout 4 times the size of the normal persons kidneys..maybe 5…covered with polycysts they are…an the cycts are spread all over in my abdomen also???oh did i say it hurts? …well has come to the point of dialysis…in my werld…an thats a whole nother post it…
THE point of this post it was to give preponderance to the fact that well….YA NEVER KNOW! ….bout anything really or anybody! as la live learn an grow ya know better..but that does not save ya frum the THEN…an point of that is ya forgive the THEN so ya can live in the now! even if someone ya knew 5 10 er 20 years ago is still negatively affecting ur mind with negative energy 😦

IT’S ALL IN UR MIND YES INDEED!!!!
SO KEEP THE GOOD, IS ALL I CAN SAY….when in recovery..because…

YA NEVR KNOW!…….

all i can say is one should always keep hope in their higher power within themselves to pull them thru if they really want to get thru it..it is really tough ? indeed it is a lot to accept that some people are simply selfishly programmed an so addicted to their programming that they will never change…bred by fear live by fear so to say….therefore that is not love an my objektive as of late is one thing LOVE….an well till i die i am going to live my very own version of the great american dream…an hopefully fly an ryde an well, live an have fun with my love, an simply experience a few good fun things in life instead of focusing on the bad an the past …

CUZ YA KNOW WHAT FOLKS “IT JEST IS WHAT IT IS “! WHAT EVER IT IS NOW…..GOT TO ACCEPT THAT AN MOVE ON FRUM THERE.
