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. ຜູ້ທີ່ຮູ້ຈັກ, ຮູ້ຈັກວ່າຂ້າພະເຈົ້າບໍ່ໄດ້ອອກການເອົາມາໃຫ້ຮຽນຮູ້ກ່ຽວກັບຂ້າພະເຈົ້າ. ໃນແລະຂອງຕົນເອງ, ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າເປັນຜູ້ຊາຍອາຍຸທີ່ບໍ່ແມ່ນລາຍລະອຽດຂອງຜູ້ທີ່ໄດ້ຮັບບໍ່ mistaken ສໍາລັບ hunk ເປັນ, ຫຼືຂ້າພະເຈົ້າເປັນຍັກໃຫຍ່ຈິດໃຈ. ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າບໍ່ GLIB ໂດຍສະເພາະແມ່ນ, ຫຼືຂ້າພະເຈົ້າມີຂອງປະທານແຫ່ງ Gab ໄດ້. ຂ້າພະເຈົ້າມະນຸດທຸກຄົນ. ດັ່ງທີ່ພວກເຮົາທັງຫມົດທີ່ໄປໂດຍຜ່ານການຊີວິດ, ພວກເຮົາແຕ່ລະຄົນພົບກັບປະຊາຊົນ, ສະຖານທີ່, ແລະກິດຈະກໍາທີ່ມີຄວາມພິເສດ. ບາງຄົນກໍ່ມີການປ່ຽນແປງພວກເຮົາສໍາລັບສ່ວນທີ່ເຫຼືອຂອງຊີວິດຂອງພວກເຮົາແລະນອກ. In my life, I have several such events.
First and foremost, I have been a born-again Christian for 30+ ປີ;
I have been married to my wonderful bride, Kim, for 20+ ປີ;
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+ ປີ.
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. ມີຄວາມສຸກ!
