Editors note - I want to thank, from the very center of my being...where my love lies, everyone who has helped me get these medical bills paid. With 1 more stay scheduled for testing, they are greatly appreciated. As the founder of a Non Profit, it would be disastrous for us on a professional level for me to go into unpaid debt. May whoever looks over you, place a loving hand on your shoulder and give you a gentle squeeze. - Ken
I don't have what you might consider a long attention span. I mean, sure...if you want to talk Linux, are pointing a gun at me, holding out a bag of cash, or are a stunning redhead that could talk a man into robbing banks...well sure, you have my attention. Outside of that, I am a poor candidate for a listening ear.
Just the way I am.
So when the little warning signs started popping up..Drinking RedBull by the gallon just to function, waking up as tired as I was when I went to bed...stuff like that. I did what I always do when faced with stuff like that.
I ignored it. SNAP another RedBull to start the day.
Physically, everything catches up with you. Carrying a computer to a third floor apartment, I lost consciousness and let gravity take its course. I'm sorry to say the computer didn't make the fall. I did, with seemingly no injury aside from a bruised leg.
Diagnosis: Excessive Fatigue Disorder.
"No big deal...ain't nuthin' broke...get to work."
That was my dad, circa 1968 after I was scorpion stung on our ranch.
So...even from the grave, he is right. I am under a friends care now, at least until I can walk without the aid of someone next to me. Once on my feet.
Good Lord Katy Bar The Door...we have kids counting on us. I told you...I'm not the best listener.
A good friend, Hugo Estrada has offered to do installs when he can. I only have two pending as of now due to this health issue...and I don't know how long my recovery time will be. Should I not be able to resume my duties, we are always looking for volunteers in the Austin area.
And Thank You...you humble me with your open hearts and generosity.
