Life Takes a Bite Out of Your Blogmeister

Your Blogmeister’s Secret Hideout

Originally posted November 15, 2017, and frequently updated since then

Since I’ve written many posts since my return to functional coherence in mid-November, any posts about my condition I wrote here upon my return, and also subsequent ones, are buried in the avalanche. So, I’m going to use the opportunity of this sticky post to link to them directly.

Between my return to functional coherence, and the restoration of most of my short term memory in mid-January, for that about two month time period, I was not inherently able to remember most people who I either knew or knew of for about five years or less.

Norm’s post on July 20, the day after the fact, just so you know what precisely happened, in case you don’t already

Norm’s post one month, then two months, then three months, after the fact.  The post summarizing September doesn’t state this directly, but I had a second hospitalization stint in the middle of the month, after which I was moved to what is still to this day as I write this my secret hideout

Best News In Months — Norm’s post on November 13 predicating my return

Hello World (Take Two) — My first post here, that evening, after almost four long months

With Some Yuge Caveats — A long and detailed run down of my condition and my near term prospects, posted not long after that

Missouri’s Loosey Goosey Texting While Driving Laws — About why my assailant will never face criminal charges, and why the law will eventually be changed

From Bugatti to Corvette — Why I’m not doing as well as it seems just from reading my writing here since my return

As I Pursue My Ph.D. in Powerology — How I’m sensing my brain is rewiring itself, after four full months of recovery

Lucky Dominoes — The series of fortunate circumstances that resulted in this not killing me instantly

As if I weren’t having enough problems, fate decided to plop down on me a very serious and frustrating case of the flu in December.

Fifth month of recovery  — Still stuck in purgatory after the fifth full month of recovery

Fourth and Very Long — The first major economic consequence of the accident for me, just after the turn of the year

Fate or Felony, followed up by Like Son Like Father — Karma is just a comforting delusion, but comforting nonetheless.

January Doldrums, Mine Eyes are Telling Another StoryTest Me, Up the Second Step.  The posts in mid-January which foretold and then announced the restoration of most of my short term memory

Four Main Courses and Weirded Out — My serial concerns as of late January

Sixth Month of Recovery — January was a good month

Seventh Month of Recovery — February was mostly hurrying up and waiting, combined with tying together some loose ends and letting go of the past

Crowdsourced Head Shrinks — My psychological problems here in the latter part of my first full year of recovery

Finality — The closure to “Fourth and Very Long”

Me Time — Six months after my last unconsciousness event, I’ve been cleared for that.

Eighth Month of Recovery — March’s baby steps

Ninth Month of Recovery — A minor step backward

Tenth Month of Recovery – A month of stasis, papered over by my anticipation for my June vacation

One Year On – A lot has happened in the year.

Late August 2018 – Good news about what transpired in the previous month and a half and on the precipice of moving a long way from St. Louis to take a new job.

At the end of February 2019, I experienced some measure of physical improvements during my previous more than a month on the road.

Ten Toes Down.  At the end of May 2019, I finally got back on two feet on a steady basis, and therefore can look forward to a summer of physical rehab on my legs.

Two Years On.  The two year anniversary, and the goings on since the beginning of May.

Mid-August 2019.  Breaking rehab for about three weeks for a business trip.

781 Days.  My first time driving a car since that day.

Freiheitstag.  Freedom Day.  The day my recovery is for all intents and purposes complete.

One more thing:  If the post starts with a geographical moniker of some sort, it’s me doing the writing.  If it starts with “Guest post by Puggg,” it’s Norm, the best friend anyone could ever have, doing the writing.

Am I seeing things? I just saw a Question Diversity comment on AmRen.
Is it too early for me to be excited?

It was almost too late for you to be excited, considering my post storm of two evenings ago.

My mistake. I haven’t been here in a bit. So when I saw QD comment, I got a bit giddy.
Anyways…your take on things has been missed.

[…] My long and frequently updated post on my condition and recovery — If I experience any significant progression or regression in my recovery, I or our favorite doggy will let you know, and this post will be appendaged. As of the time of my moving, my cognitive functioning has mostly recovered in full, but my physical functioning is still far from it, I’m still in a wheelchair during waking hours more often than not, and if I can stay upright on two feet, it’s for an hour at the longest, usually less. […]

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
