Good Evening from Philadelphia....
The Power is back up & parts of Philadelphia are underwater.
Tornadoes have struck & I hope You are doing well & okay & UNHARMED, My Son.
Due to the current Situation-&-Circumstances, that is all I can do for now.
The rapid change in weather & my still as yet unhealed spinal-injuries, really don't go together with torrential-downpours & dramatic temperature drops!
So I managed to get in to the doctor's office yesterday LITERALLY JUST BEFORE THE SERIOUS SHIT HIT US HERE IN THE CITY.
They then looked at Me like I was fuckin crazy for working while having multiple slipped discs & Tarlov Cysts on my spine.
And then gave Me a medical note for the next 3-days, starting yesterday.
So that I can use My Sick-Days to try to get Myself back in order.
I'll be returning to Premier Orthopedics NEXT MONTH and You read that right.
I have something... that I must finish first, before I can potentially put myself in a situation that may end up in back-surgery.
If You have been wondering why My Posts are spaced out to the point of pointlessness, now You know.
Pain is a daily part of My Day and I am THANKFUL for what little Muay Thai I learned and My Own Ability to endure pain.
Old age is setting in however and My Pain Tolerance almost literally killed Me last month when My Blood Pressure reached 170+ over 101+, and why, You might ask...?
Because even though I am NOT POSTING.
I am still working.
And typing and writing and still doing the Dayjob, where...?
I wasn't getting enough sleep.
Lack of sleep, while already having high blood pressure, is a recipe for a stroke or heart attack, something My Doctor got on Me again about & told Me flat out "You are no longer physically able to keep doing the things you've done to get this far this fast from where You were during the whole ordeal with Your Ex-Wife. If You DON'T stop pushing yourself, you're going to kill yourself. Because you have too many physical-ailments & none of them are being properly tended to."
Because these things require more money than I make.
I have been...?
For being able to steadily increase My Income, but it is nowhere near enough. And that is because it is NOT COMING FROM WE3.
Funny thing is I was making petty-cash from this website at one point, then Weebly was sold, and all of a sudden all of my traffic stopped and so did My Sales.
I don't type every little detail here, but what I am going to have to do is quickly redo My Store & then simply LINK IT to My Spreadshirt-Store, which leads to tonight's, -_-...?
Lemme point out that I type what I've typed BECAUSE IT NEEDED TO BE TYPED.
I wasn't happy with once again GETTING SIDETRACKED DUE TO HEALTH.
Which, as anyone should & can & could guess, leads to stress, where stress, for Me, is NOT GOOD, at least, NOT IN THAT WAY.
I caught up on My Sleep last month & was forced to use sick-time & personal-days because My Body made it obvious when I tried to go into the Dayjob that IF I PUSHED IT, then it was DEFINITELY GOING TO PUSH BACK, in the Worst Way possible, annnnnnnnnnnd, it was at that point that I realized that I hadn't been minding My Blood Pressure & decided to check it.
Again, lack of sleep is a sure fire way to get killed by high blood pressure, however added to this in MY INSTANCE, is that MY SPINAL-BASED INJURIES ARE ALSO SLEEP DEPENDENT AS WELL, lovely.
So of course a clusterfuck of crap ensued, now?
In the MIDST of all of this I successfully paid off my bills & pushed them ahead.
THIS is what I was working on & why sleep became secondary alongside working on WE3 artwork & storylines.
I do not normally DRAW STRUCTURES & CITIES & SUCH, so this was another thing I was tampering around with & experimenting with last month as well!
Needless to say I got caught up in My Work & kept pushing & nearly pushed myself right the fuck on up outta here, which was...!?
...On My Part.
I "learned My Lesson", to a degree.
And yesterday when the problems & pains were too problematic, never mind My LOVELY RENTAL PROPERTY PEOPLE, fine folks as they are & yes, that is syrupy sarcasm spread generously within this sentence.
I went & got some medical attention & am once again doing the best I can to mend up & manage. I simply need to make it through this month & stick to the plan that I've drawn up. I'll keep You posted on what that is/was, as this month goes on, either way...?
Welcome to September 2021...
...Try not to kill Yourself... by accident, I know...?
I'm more mindful of that now....
