Adventures in the Mind of a Deranged Lunatic

(Otherwise known as Jerr's World)

A Little Over Two Years

A lot has happened since the last time I wrote an entry.

I spent a month out of my home in 2013. I got sick. Staph infection and Pneumonia all-at-once!

I couldn't eat. Unfortunately (in my opinion), I went from 220-180, 180-140, 140-160, then settled at 136 this year. Let's just say, health scares certainly built up!

I'm mostly on Tumblr now (http://jerrbear81.tumblr.com).

I thought I met an awesome guy at the beginning of 2014, but he ghosted out on me.

So...

Wheelchair Problems and Things Heard from the TV while going through my Out-of-Bed Routine
Ummmmmm
conner24
I’ve been having too many wheelchair problems lately. I set up an appointment to get my wheelchair looked at. When I tilt, the wheelchair creaks and occasionally there is a loud popping noise.

While I was going through my Out-of-Bed routine, I heard yet another disturbing opinion on Obesity from my TV. It was a commercial for The Dr. Oz show, where our First Lady was making an appearance. Dr. Oz said he believes Obesity is a National Security concern.

Really?

From HealthyBodyDaily.com: “Dr Oz tells Michelle Obama that he feels that the number one greatest national security that we have is obesity.”

Moonface

Fuck.

It's the culmination of two months.

Tonight, in St. Louis, at The Luminary, was the Moonface concert. I found out Moonface was coming here to St. Louis two or three months ago. I was ecstatic! I was even happier when I found out The Luminary is wheelchair accessible, despite looking the opposite. Ten dollar tickets were no problem to buy.

Fuck.

It's the culmination of two months.

So my sister and I are going. One of our friends too; we bought her a ticket last night. Concert started at 8 PM tonight. We left early at 7 PM to get there. My excitement is up, even if there aren't outward signs of it. Spencer Krug is one of my favorite artists, and this would be my first time seeing him!

Fuck.

It's the culmination of two months.

We got lost.

We drove around in circles for three hours thanks to a broken GPS that kept telling us to turn around. When we asked for directions, from four different people, we got lost again! We headed home at 10 PM.

Fuck.

It's the culmination of two months.

For the past two months, the only offline friend I made who wasn't a family member or one of my sister's friends hasn't been replying to any texts or online messages I've sent him. I haven't seen him since October. I only know he's still around because of Facebook.

I really needed this night to be awesome.

Fuck.

It's the culmination of two months.

When we got home, I left the house. I went for a stroll. Went to the Old Time Pottery parking lot, it was 11:30 and dark. I was alone. I took a deep breath.

Fuck.

It's the culmination of two months.

I yelled fuck.

Fuck.

It's the culmination of two months of shit.

Updates and Other Mishaps
Jazz Hands!

Ok, I've been neglecting this LiveJournal. I have felt like life has decided to push me down a lot as of late.

However, there have been good points. I don't feel as lethargic as I did during the winter. I got to see some family members that I hadn't seen for years. Also, my parents and little sister visited in April. My wheelchair is not broken, and maybe I'll catch Moonface in Concert this June. Possibly Destroyer too.

Wheelchair News
Ummmmmm
conner24
I found out my wheelchair's paperwork was missing some information. Which means yet again I have to wait a little longer for something I needed a month ago. Suckage.

Medicaid has been backed up in paperwork for a while and it'll be anywhere from two weeks to a month until they review my paperwork for approval or disapproval. Meanwhile, I'm stuck at home with a battery charge that lasts, at best and with minimal wheelchair usage, 2-3 hours because the motors on the wheels have been bad and suck out the voltage! The best part? Replacing both motors is a major repair and if I get Illinois Medicaid to pay for it most likely I can say goodbye to a new wheelchair! Yet again I am sucking it up and sitting in this house.

Fuck insurance.

Good News

There's some good news for me. Firstly, I can get another doctor to sign my paperwork. I already have new papers so I'm taking that option.

Secondly, medicaid will still pay for repairs as long as they're minor repairs. Some of the repairs I need are minor so there will be at least one less worry there.
