You may have noticed that i haven’t been posting with so great a frequency during the past couple of weeks, one reason for that is that i’ve been getting back into the online Catholic forums instead of blogging. Another reason is that i’ve been trying to come to grips with some fairly oppressive health symptoms. I’ve been losing my balance and some days i have twitched the whole day long (it is hardly noticeable to anyone else, thanks be to God), but It’s as if my nerves are wired up the wrong way or something. I’ve even awoken during the night to my body doing this psychotic nerve-dance and it’s pretty disconcerting that this is happening everyday/night.
I have an appointment with the neurologist on Wednesday but just to be on the safe side about the eye pain, i decided to get an eye test as i thought this would be one of the suggestions that would be made to me by the neurologist, well it turns out that thanks be to God, even though my vision is sometimes blurred, i have really good eyesight. The optician mentioned i have dry eyes but apart from that they look really healthy.
I was hoping some problem might be highlighted which would explain my eye pain, even the optician said he was sorry that he couldn’t find an explanitary cause, but wished me all the best for Wednesday.
A couple of days ago i went out shopping with my daughter and found myself losing my balance quite severely in a shop we were in. I felt drunk and i don’t drink alcohol. I’ve been having some internet dialogue with a blog buddy who has some similar symptoms but who has been under the care of neurologist for years, and i get the impression that my hope for a quick diagnosis and hence, a swift medication action plan (if necessary), is as unlikely as Obama changing his policy on pro-life issues.
Still, yet another reason i’ve been around less is that my mojo for blogging has darn gun and got itself lost.
But something cool happened today that i want to share with you.
Today i found myself in the company of a UK proponant for the cause of the canonisation of Archbishop Fulton Sheen and when I placed my offering in the retirement collection after Mass – directly into Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s crimson Biretta – my hand brushed the side of it as i withdrew it and i got this odd sensation and remember thinking, ‘something just happened!’
I don’t know what, yet.
Cool though huh?
