motel bar the dirty sulky moon

the city hidden in there/its just another mile

draconian winter unforetold

one night your shoulders will ache

to a wolf from a lamb

leads you here despite your destination

lush black swamps where mandrake grows

all bitter and vain

the wind that thinned and skinned us

you should change the message on your machine

    “you should change the message on your machine” , ‘On Angel Street’ is such a hauntingly beautiful song…I am counting the hours till it will be performed live here in Chicago.

    TO Kraig and David P – thank you SO much for commenting and even including me in your daily prayers. That goes miles beyond ‘mere acquaintances’, it truly struck a chord with me and I will always remember it as if we spoke today.

    TO all the other well wishers – thank you from the entirety of my heart. This community is very special and has so many warm people wishing a complete stranger ‘good health’.

    And finally: This disease has been a part of my life since April of 2006, It has progressively worsen over the years. I have seen countless doctors, have had numerous ‘injections’ into my spinal column, tests…tests…and more tests. I have been to therapists, surgeons, and even fucking ‘medicine men’. I have Severe Neural Foraminal Stenosis of both cervical and lumbar regions. Cervical area: 2 herniated discs and also nerve damage. Lumbar region: Severe degeneration of bone structure, 3 massive disc herniations with L4-L5 at 9mm and L5-S1 at 7mm , stenosis thru out the entire area, damage to left impending nerve root which causes incredible pain and numbness on my left side and left leg. I am on multiple medications, back brace, and I often where a T.E.N.S unit all day long. It is a very expensive, portable, electrical nerve stimulation unit that sends vibration and frequency to electrodes that I position around my affected areas. Yes, I have tried and spoke with every other ‘alternative’ evasive and non-evasive person/procedural over the past 4+ years. It is plain and simple: it is degenerating at ‘my own bodies choosing’. If I choose the route of a surgical intervention, I have been informed by numerous neuro-surgeons that the angles that the discs have displaced themselves and the severe stenosis, makes any surgical procedure a ‘extremely’ risky and tricky endeavor. And than to make things even more complicated, I have been diagnosed with severe fibromyalgia (June of 2010) (chronic pain syndrome) in my quads-traps-elbows-knees-wrists-and hands , which is a hellish prison itself.

    So, thank you to each and everyone of you, and especially you…SK , for offering well wishes and good health to me. As you look up at my ‘avatar’, my princess-my beautiful angel …my Kristina, I hope you all can understand why I do not want to ‘risk’ a procedure that DOES NOT have a proven possible outcome. I live each and every day for my wonderful children, as so many of us do. And I do not want a ‘mistake’ made by someone else, and plenty ‘mistakes’ have been made already by medical professionals, change my life to the point that I am unable to even lift and hold my kids…ever again.

    AsAlways,
    Darrin K.
