My Whole Expanse I Cannot See…

I formulate infinity stored deep inside of me…

Despite my efforts, I’ve only been able to consistently maintain one assistant who can take me out on the town with the absolute guarantee that I won’t die because she did something stupid. She actually once made sure I didn’t die after one of my breathing machines quit working for no apparent reason. So, she’s very good. She’s also very out of town. 

Now, the last time she went out of town and I didn’t have a backup, I went and had myself committed. I was really depressed and not sleeping, I had way too much time for thoughts that were nothing but bad. Still, being committed was a completely awful experience. So, this time, I think I’ll just go become a nun.

    Damn. I’ve been looking after a man with Motor Neuron Disease for 6 years [most sufferers last 6 months-2 years] every day, 3 times a day with hyper-rare days off. I’m credited by pretty much everyone with keeping him alive as the longest known MND survivor.

    I seriously wish I could help you out, but obviously that isn’t possible.

    so, very best of fortunes with finding someone. I have a good idea of how important it is to have someone you can rely on.

    I really hope you find someone that is perfect for you and your needs. I sent you an email earlier from Craigslist and started reading your blog since your ad had a link to it. You seem like a great person and I wish you the best in your endeavors.

    Mmmnnnnnmmmm….becoming a nun? That doesn’t sound very romantic.

    When I went into substance abuse treatment, it was shocking that they didn’t give me a big fleecy robe to wear in an andirondack chair. By a lake. Shocking.

    I was a nun for awhile. it is more exciting if u don’t make a habit of it.

    Don’t you go disappear into a convent or an institution. I doubt either will let you blog from within their walls. Congrats on the neuroswitch! I read up on it and watched the videos… pretty amazing. Can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with then. I hope it helps you feel back to yourself.
