Hi everyone! I’m so glad there is so many of you invested in Chris’s wellbeing and recovery. I’m also very thankful many of you have come up and spoken to me about my blog! It’s so great for me to hear that you have learned something about meningitis, or brain injury, and that you love hearing the updates on Chris.

There isn’t much to report on this update, as you may be aware there is a massive backlog of referals in the health system. There is also little known about meningitis recovery so finding treatment is always a challenging task.

So here’s a little update on where Chris is in his recovery.

PTSD THERAPY

Chris has started talking with someone about his PTSD that stems from his meningitis battle. He has only had two sessions so far, and has alot of readings to do before the next one. He is…

NORTHERN LIGHTS

Hi

Thanks for the follow(s) * (+ likes), as the reason I write is to share.
* (Though my family and close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera # in “real life”, rather than in cyberspace!)

# By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

(get with the times now,”luddite”* c – it should be a smart phone)

* or so I was often called by my “my techno-geek” friend, Bill (“the gonk”)

“total non-techno” c (who doesn’t possess a mobile phone, after a rather eventful’ experience some years back, whilst trying to walk, talk and chew gum at the same time)

Who says men can’t multi-task!

Kind regards and all the best with your blog

Best wishes from the First City to see the sun (in summer) …and we’re also the first to see the sunset and the stars (in winter-time)

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”

Numansh

These swirling lights are so good! It seems like magic. It looks like it appears from the heaven. These lights swirl and dance on the way to our hearts. The aurora borealis (northern lights) form when charged particles emitted from the sun during a solar flare penetrate the earth’s magnetic shield and collide with atoms and molecules in our atmosphere. These collisions result in countless little bursts of light, called photons, which make up the aurora. Sometimes the form above seas and other times on ice. Backed by the mountains these look like a rising sun in the night.

Gratitude List 1244

Eden in Babylon

Happy Labor Day.  Here’s my gratitude list from Saturday morning.   I’ll be posting three music clips and one announcement, all three hours apart, throughout the day.  Hope it all finds you blessed.    

1. Slept solidly for nine hours between 10 & 7, no sleeping pill being needed, and no sleep paralysis.

2. Observing the Sabbath, mostly reading.  Grateful for quietude.

3. Grateful for my apartment, for it’s “out of the way” location, for my new incentive to keep it tidy, and for my positive relationship with the landlord.

4. Glad I’m not in the awful space I was in two days ago, and grateful for the lesson of just how far into spiritual darkness the “obsession of the mind” can lead me.

5. Grateful for Matt, one of the better sponsors I’ve had.

6. First thing I read this morning was an unusually good “Got Questions” article.   It started…
