Hi everybody. Welcome to my blog where I talk about the Present.
Gimme Shelter (that’s my favorite song). It’s by The Rolling Stones. Now this is a comment on the present and the past. I think I told you, I was in Jamaica, checking into a hotel and the manager came out and said, “Oh, Mr. Nice. We’ve been expecting you.” I went back to his office and the manager said, “There’s a guest who wants to stay on and his room is yours.” I walked into the manager’s office, and there was Mick Jagger.
I said, “Give me another room.” They were all booked up. I said, where am I gonna sleep, by the pool? No, I want my room.” I made some other comment. Mick Jagger got pissed off and took off. I should have given the guy my room. I still feel guilty. If anyone out there knows him, tell him Mr. Nice says he’s sorry. The guy was just on vacation. But then, like my friend said here, he’s always on vacation.
The reason why I’m telling you this story is I’ve been feeling guilty lately. I haven’t been working out as much. When my mom was around, I worked twice as hard. My friend here said, “Are you sitting around feeling sorry for yourself?” I replied, “No. I’m just sitting around.”
I’m tired man. It’s been 10 years since my first bleed. I literally work out when I open my eyes and that ends when I shut them. Crazy. I need a vacation. You can’t take a vacation from yourself, so I just gotta bite the bullet and work hard. It does make a difference, working out. I walk a little smoother. I stopped eating sugar and less caffeine. It seems to help a lot. I’ve been having some weird dreams though, man. For example the other night, I called in my health aide and I said, “We have to get to Point A.” And then I said, “Our only transportation is by horse, but we’re gonna be real hungry, so don’t eat the horse or we’ll never get to Point A.” I have to say, there is some logic in that, somewhere.
On another note, the woman who works on my gardens, her husband had a head injury. He went on medicare, and anyone on medicare should apply for the traumatic brain injury waiver. It helps you a lot. It definitely helps you a lot. It saved my butt. You can get health aides, special equipment, extra other help, etc. Talk to your service coordinator about it.
That’s all I really have to talk to you about. I’ll just keep going, right? OK, talk to you next week.
Love, B. Nice
