So first this is going to be a multi-post meaning it will have more then one topic. This is because I have a lot going on and I kind of need to write as well for more then one reason. First I posted my job blog post on this site in the Craigslist resume section to one increase my views and also start trying to get a different and better paying jobs that cares and works well with person’s with disabilities as that is what I am. Here is the Craigslist posting: https://spokane.craigslist.org/res/d/about-that-time-to-get-better/6701339654.html I’m only looking of work in the Spokane, Wa US area unless remote work is available. Also I wanted to state that soon I will be having a premium member access and payment options soon to help cover costs of running the site and if I run into any issues with my posts. Although, I do my best to be right in that I as well as the site never intent to harm anyone but in some sense people do it to themselves and what goes around comes around is what I truly believe and maybe it is because of some of the things I have seen throughout my life.
Anyways, so today I’m in a lot of extra pain and it hurts like hell. I don’t have my actual medical records available at this time to give you guys what is actually going on but I will say I have bulging disc from my neck down to my butt. and some compression on my annular cord in my thoracic area. Today it really hurts at times to a point it makes me want to to give up as it so unconformable and makes it hard to move. And let me put it this way. I work 47 hours a week on average and one day off a week. This is part of the raise I want a different job or where I’m making enough running my own company I don’t need to work for anyone else. Right now I’m trying to make it and deal with it as much as I can. All this shit because of a car accident and now I have to deal with this for the rest of my life. I am thankful for the amount of tools and medicine have available and the help. Thank you for reading my complaining. Today is just one of those days where I’m in a lot of extra pain.

Someday’s I just get into one of those irritated with the amount of shit we have to do to log in to a simple damn account. And I’ m a software engineer and computer person LOL I repair computers and what not. So that’s why most of the time it doesn’t bother me. But I also hav e a lot of back and spine issues from a car accident and at times bad joint pain in my wrist and fingers. Probably old skate boarding injury. Anyways, so at times it sucks to type especially with my left hand as that is the wrist I hurt the most. And I use some pretty secure passwords for things. And even though I know I type my damn fingers don’t want to effing move or something. And then there is the stupid security stuff like 2-step-verification and shit. And sending or calling your phone to give you a dumb code. Just to login to an account for whatever reason (none of your effing business). If people would just not be greedy damn bastards we all would even have to have all this shit or if people would mind there own business. But I don’t care on my side as I don’t have anything to hide but I don’t want stuff being taken like my identity but a theft and/or used for other frauds as well. Anyways, I’m not saying people not to use it, in fact both I recommend you keep your stuff secure my company does as well. But I will say that the other side of me likes how technology is advancing. But it getting stupid all the extra security shit. Hell this site is hacked daily and I wish I could do more to stop these fucktards but not much more at the moment.
So as mentioned my introduction post I’ve been dealing with a back/neck/spinal injury from a car accident I had got into back on Oct 20, 2012 which was 8 days before my birthday. So needless to say my birthday is sometimes hard to deal with as a lot of things that I like to do are limited and/or can’t even do anymore at this time.
Anyways, I’ve been dealing with this injury for a long time. I tried and have gone through multiple treatments and tried just about everything. I find that there are a few things that work but only work partly. When it comes down to I prefer to stay as holistic/natural as possible. But the problem with that is that most insurance companies don’t like stuff like chiropractic and massage therapy. Or acupuncture which I have not tried yet as I will most likely have to pay for it out of my pocket. I have done chiropractic and massage therapy which I had to stop because of reasons I’ve been advised not to discuss but I will say that my insurance company is covering my medical bills right now though some thing I had to have covered by Washington Apple Health. I will say I’m not happy with my insurance company. But that will be all I say at this time. I’m back into my chiropractic treatment again but I’m only able to afford once a week at this time as I’ve been paying for it out of my pocket. I’ve gone through multiple injections like nerve blocks and trigger point injections, a few different prescriptions but I would like to get off it as now it feel like a band-aide and I feel it is making symptoms worse and/or causing new ones. At this time I only take Nortriptyline 25mg nightly which is suppose to help me sleep which had done so in the beginning. I take a lot of herbal supplements like triphala power, turmeric to help with going to the bathroom and inflammation. This does help too. But I’ve also been doing a lot of research in to other alternative holistic healing methods.
So long story short I will say that at the current standing I have multiple bulging disc from my neck down to my lumbar area. There also a disc degeneration in the lumbar area and a facet degeneration in cervical spine. I also have an EMG coming up to see if I have any nerve damage and such.
I will say that today I’m having a bit of a hard time and it’s even hard to sit here and type this post. My pain scale is 7 and I feel really nauseated like I’m going to throw up.
Well thanks for reading though I don’t care if you read this or not. This blog is more for myself then anything.
