Now Is the Perfect Time to Buy a Lottery Ticket

July 13th, 2011

Last week, I was suffering from a weak knee–something in my left knee was a bit inflamed and painful. Nothing much, but it made me favor it somewhat.

Last Friday, I was at work and turned a corner too fast, slipped, and fell. I wrenched my foot on the way down, and was immediately in bad pain. An hour later, I couldn’t even walk. I went to the hospital by taxi, and had x-rays taken. I came in the next day on crutches–with a fractured fifth metatarsal–the same bone I broke five years ago. This is a hairline, not like the major separation I had before, but it has me back in a cast and on crutches.

The next day, I had that problem with the PC part and Dospara, setting back my ability to make the PC I had planned for so long. Additionally, I would have to cancel the trip to Akihabara that the Computer Making Club had planned for so long. Also, unable to drive a car, Sachi and I had to put off our plans to get a Shiba Inu puppy, even though we had one picked out already.

Then, as I did preliminary work on the PC, I cut a finger badly on a sharp part in the case, producing a real gusher. It healed OK, but it was just One MoreThing.

But not the last. As I entered the office this morning, I lost balance on the crutches, and toppled over backwards, twisting my left hand, at the very least spraining the wrist pretty badly. It hasn’t even been a week yet since all this started.

At some point, I figure something pretty damned good has got to happen to me.

    yeah, I forgot to warn you about that.

    That’s also why I don’t buy cheap cases. I cut my finger bad in the 1990s, being a Mac guy I didn’t know PCs could be so dangerous. . .

    There you have it. You have to be deeply concerned over something and that stops you from paying attention.

    Slow down. Now you have to anyways with the cast and crutches, but you can still be tempted to try to get things done faster – just take it easy.

    Concentrate on here and now, center yourself, perhaps learn meditation – Japan is famous for its Zen masters. Meditation and deep body relaxation allow faster healing.

    Wish You fast healing
