Saddened, angered, understanding


It seems do to my "basketcase" ways; my next year of life has been set for me. I'm stuck here in Baltihell for at least the next 14moths.

For this I am angered; yes & saddened. I actually have a chance to get the he11 out of here & back where I belong. The decision was made @ the funeral home, where I wasn't present for obvious reasons.

But their is a full understanding behind it. Mom's lease is signed, not that on my meds I'm an a** to be reckoned w\ in situations like this & could get her out of it in a heart beat. But things have to be done here & I don't just wanna stick my brothers w\ it. Not to mention my medical has finally started moving forward.

Neurologist, psychiatrist next week; then pain specialist, I finally got all my medical records here, so I am on the ball now.

So saying bye to dad as well an influential part of my life; the grateful dead

"Listen to the river sing sweet songs to ROCK my soul !!!!"

My name is August West, and I love my Pearly Baker best more than my wine.
More than my wine - more than my maker, though he's no friend of mine.

Ohhhh Dee, not sure it came of right. I would have suggested it in a heartbeat. Maybe it's more of an embarrassment I couldn't be there to decide.

But as sad as some may laugh, saying bye to the grateful dead have been hard as well as my dad.

Good thing about saying bye to the Dead is you'll always have the recordings to listen to. Those aren't going anywhere.

Sorry again about your dad's death. I wouldn't view the 14 months in Baltimore as a sentence but more as an opportunity to help your mom while also being in a stable spot to work on yourself for an extended period of time.

Praying for you as I head to bed, Dennis...

You will come out the other side stronger in 14 months, that's my guess.

"Some days the gales are howling
Some days the sea is still as glass
Ooh reef the mainsail
Ooh lash the mast
You're lost sailor
You've been too long at sea

Now the shore-lights beckon
Yeah there's a price for being free"
