Time Lost

Time Lost

We are born…We Die. What happens in between is life.  For most, life is linear and continuous.  For some, the continuous aspect is missing.  Parts of life are missing, hence Time Lost

This blog is about the part of my life that went missing, at least in the traditional sense due to a severe Pancreatitis attack.  Parts are still missing, while other parts have been replaced by dream like episodes, vivid recollections that remain very real to me.

Also included is a journal.  It starts in the present because it’s taken 9 months to come to grips with the missing months.

I’ve created this blog for me.  If anyone else finds it interesting or maybe helpful, that’s good.

Best place to start is the Background menu page.  Then use the menu to view either the Vivid Recollections or Journal.

But….Why now?

Why Now
Why Now

Why, after more then 9 months have I decided to write about my illness?  Why indeed.  I’ll make a long story short (perhaps the long story will appear in a future journal entry).

A journal was the suggestion of (one of my) therapists.

I’m including in the journal updates regarding caring for my mother.  After some health issues combined with near blindness and very poor hearing, our family, including Mom, agreed it was best she moved from her apartment back east to Colorado with me.  For anyone who has had to care for someone like my mother, there is little I will say that will be a surprise.  For those who may find themselves (kids, are you listening 🙂 ) in a similar situation, this may be an eye opener.

This is a work in process…I’m updating on a daily basis…
