Some of you know, some have no clue.
I have non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy. I’m also cognitively impaired. It cost me my last assignment 3 years ago and I’ve been kind of forced into early retirement. I’ve applied for disability through Social Security. I am nearly worthless mentally and physically. My main problem is balance and spacing out. Getting old is a bear and I’m 65.
I wanted to let you guys know.
I’ve hesitated to mention this truth but I am a fairly open person.
I’m also an optimist. One of the areas I continue to grow in has been my artwork. I paint quicker (although I can only paint about an hour a day.) I have developed some unusual methods over the years. I’m slowly making videos with more to come. Check these out. They're made to quickly make a point and are only 3.5 minutes long.
My diet has changed considerably over the past couple years.
I’m eating things like broccoli, cauliflower, raisons, spinach and squash.
I am even eating tomatoes.
Until recently they were saying neuropathy was irreversible. I have hope now in some treatment I am receiving and I can see some improvement in the exercises I’m doing. I’m finally getting somewhere. I had a cognitive test the other day and it came back positive. Finally. It says I'm severely cognitively impaired.
Anyway, that's the scoop. I think now would be a good time to consider art as a gift.
