I can say that I've had a great life, but I've also had challenges. I've always been one who wants to share the great things I find with others. Þeir sem vita, veit að ég er ekki út til að koma í sviðsljósinu á mig. Í og af sjálfum mér, Ég er ekki descript eldri maður sem hefur aldrei verið skakkur fyrir hunk, né er ég andlega risastór. Ég er ekki sérstaklega Glib, né þarf ég að gjöf gab. Ég er hver maður. Eins og við öll fara í gegnum lífið, við hvert lendir fólk, Staðir, og atburðir sem eru sérstakar. Sumir breytast jafnvel okkur fyrir the hvíla af lífi okkar og víðar. In my life, I have several such events.
First and foremost, I have been a born-again Christian for 30+ years;
I have been married to my wonderful bride, Kim, for 20+ years;
I suffer from Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES), but through God's providence, have recovered exceptionally well. I am restricted in some areas, but I do work full time, in the field in which I've spent the prior 15+ years.
It is about the latter one this blog is focused on. My journey into this relatively unknown condition has been something akin to a corn maze... at night... with no flashlight (or other personal light)... with a new moon. Yeah, confusing, bewildering, scary, wandering around with little direction since the medical community knew little about CES at the time I was introduced to it. I've since found that other diseases and conditions are likewise obscure and information is scarce. So I'm going to talk about my journey in hopes that it will help others who, unfortunately, follow the same path.
May you draw strength and inspiration as well as avoiding the pitfalls into which I fell. Njóta!
