Hello friends. After some urging from some of dear friends, I am updating my blog. It has been a while since my last entry. My life continues to be an up and down rollercoaster. As I write, I am going through one of the toughest relapses yet. Not only is my speech impared, but it is difficult to speak at all! I am glad this is written and not oral. I am sure I don't need to express to people how frustrating it is to struggle with the ability to speak. Those of you who know me know it is something I liked to do.
Add this to the list of issues that I have been going through, and you get the portrait of one very strange person. I have more doctor appoinments lined up. I have more testing to schedule. I have more faith to put into this.
On another note, I wanted to say two things about Michael Jackson. The first thing is that I feel we was one of the most gifted performers we will ever see. He touched millions with his talents and skills, even if he was a tad (or rather off his rocker) strange. The second thing is . . . enough already. By watching the news and following news websites, I think Michael was honored enough within the first 24 hours of the discovery. Presidents don't get this much coverage when they die. I saw that CNN.com had the Michael Jackson story as their lead story for two days. I'm sorry, but aren't there bigger issues in the world? I feel for his family, his children, and those who loved him, but shouldn't we start to focus on the other issues going on. I read that a reporter asked the White House Press Secretary why Obama didn't make an official statement about Michael's passing sooner. I think . . . and I am just taking a shot in the dark here . . . President Obama has bigger issues on his plate.
