I belong to a website for walkers called Walker Tracker (https://community.walkertracker.com/). It allows me to log my daily steps, and for friends to be able to see how their friends are doing. There are friendly competitions and such... but the idea is that you are never walking 'alone'.

My screen name there is the same as here. I'd consider it an honor to be able to take daily walks with you, my friend.

Thank you.

If I had any friends I would use that

I only appear strong because I'm so bloody stubborn.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before but my white cell count was 535 where as it should be between 5 and 10 and this is why they want to study me.

I'm special, but in a really bad way.

Bugger.

That's quite high. Have you considered seeing a doctor?

Clock
I think just before I had my blood spun using the "Machine" it peaked around 560.

"Blood like Porridge" one of the Nurses said.

For 3 days running they spun my white cells out then ungraciously dumped them into a bin.

3.2 litres 1 st day 2.3 2nd day 1.2 litres last day.

Not cool.

I was very tempted by a Sprint or Primavera before my 70th anniversary one cropped up on the doorstep.

Well I have the GT part sorted out so we're good on that score.

I've started on some new medication today and is this shit is so strong I can only take 15mg every other day.

I'll admit that I have no idea that I'm doing the right thing by staying away from work because I'm having so many appointments it just makes sense not to commit to an employer plus I can't really think straight while I'm on the meds.

They really cloud your ability to think in a linear fashion and your short term memory fades.

This month has been great because I've clear of them so I feel sharp but something tells me I won't be like that for long.

It's all jolly good fun.

Thank you. That's very kind.

Obviously everything I reserve for the future is subject to change but I have plans to visit Toronto next year to do something stupid with Harbinger so lets see if we can work something out.

I was supposed to be in the US today but my meds kind of knocked me for six a few weeks back so I've had to put it all back for a few months.

It's just part of the process I guess.

Right now these new meds have less side affects than all of the others.

I've got a headache for most of the day but I can put up with that as it's a small price to pay.

Hey Bill, hang in there. Hope the meds do the job without taking too harsh a toll.

Cheers.

I think that this is the 4th drug that they have tried all of them ending in "tinib"

They have all given me a bad memory especially for dates and appointments and what I walked upstairs for.

It also makes for great conversations - You know when someone is saying something incredibly interesting and it triggers something in you that you'd like to contribute ? Well by the time that they have finished I've forgotten what I wanted to say.

That happens a lot.

I also forget what I've said to people, and when.

I have to say, it is a really is an interesting part of my life so far.

Actually on the point of that I have no idea if I'm doing the right thing.

I've not returned to work ( mainly because I can't focus for very long ) even though I've been offered two jobs in the Motor Industry but also because of the amount of visits that I have to see my 2 Consultants.

I see one twice a month and the other once but both of them take up the entire day so I don't want to be the guy whose there one day and not the next.

I also don't want let any body down so I'm just going to enjoy the silence for now while the professionals find something that works.

It's still a novelty to not have to get out of bed for an employer and to spend the days I'm not being prodded and poked keeping fit and enjoying my freedom but I still feel a bit unsure if waiting is the right thing to do.

I hope that makes sense.

Bill Dog, not having gone back through the posts I do hope you have some sort of disability insurance. My sister some years back was given medication for OCD and due to the effects of short term memory loss was able to file for assistance. It's be a real help as her meds are very expensive.
