MLK Day 2012

step into the light

My son enjoyed his day off from school. I slept in so late, I did not have time to eat lunch before going to therapy today. Then she made me do the step ups at therapy. My knees crunch, and I get dizzy from not breathing correctly. I made it through the session, thoroughly wiped out. I spent some time on the phone talking to my daughter. I had peanut butter and nutella on toast for dinner, followed by an apple. While watching tv I ate a leftover candy cane (last one left) and some pringles (my salty guilt trippers). I am having a few bites of chocolate. A life without chocolate is not worth living. If I have another stroke everyone will now know why.

I watched the Betty White 90th birthday special. I love her. I want to be her when I grow up. I want to live that long, work until I die, and have fun doing it. I want to live with a bunch of dogs someday too. Maybe, one cat as well, and a miniature horse or donkey. Back to the show, the funniest part to me was the bit Barack Obama did. He said Betty did not look 90, so he wanted to see her long form birth certificate. If Betty campaigned for him, I bet he would win the re-election. I hope he does, I hope he has the chance to reform healthcare. Someone should try to reform healthcare before it kills us. I just saw another bill from last March, from one doctor I don’t even remember in acute rehab. One day was $900, for what? I don’t remember him, he might have signed my med release to the nurse. Anyway, no doctor spent more than an hour with me. His total was over $3,000. This is in addition to the $70,000 the facility charged and the thousands for physical therapy. I think it would have been more cost effective if I stayed in a hotel with round the clock private nursing. If more people could understand my point they would want healthcare reform too. The only solutions I see offered are to criticize any attempt at change, and bitch about there being no solution.

I am going to end today’s post with another quote;

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
