Just an update

This site doesn’t really a lot of its hit on my updates its mostly people coming to look at the tutorial for Vero / OSMC. I’m cool with it but if you are curious in the last couple months. I have been suffering from severe pain in the neck not like I can’t get this code figured out pain in the neck literal pain. For 6 months or so I’ve been going to a Pain Management Center trying different things medicine injections and yes narcotics. physical therapy was not helping. Nothing was working good enough for me to go back to work. I was referred out to a surgeon. My first visit with the surgeon was a bit of an eye-opener the first thing he told me. I won’t even consider surgery if you’re a smoker and at the time I was a smoker. If I quit smoking he would do surgery on me so I quit smoking and 3 months later. I was on the operating table. I had cervical disc arthroplasty C3 C4 C5. Getting the surgery was the biggest decision I’ve ever made for myself. I was terrified and eager to do it at the same time A lot of mixed emotions. I did get it done everything went fine my surgeon said I was a great candidate and my range of motion is normal and maybe even better down the line than most people once everything heals up.

Although I like being off work and having all that free time. I do not like being on a medicine that is highly addictive that will have a grip on you which I already know it has a grip on me. I feel like a science experiment but let’s hope I’m not a statistic of the one that did not make it.

But let’s talk major surgery and the effects afterwards that’s what blew my mind. If you look up vivid dreams and anesthesia I think you will understand what I’m talking about. I have always been interested in psychedelic and Altered States of consciousness mainly Natural Altered States of consciousness. When I was a teenager I had my first Out of Body Experience. That experience alone as a teenager change the way I thought life was or is. It led me down a path of research on out of body experiences and consciousness and the way the mind works. I’ve read a lot of books on out-of-body experiences there is one book that I highly recommend you can actually read it online and he is a Linux user cool right! The author’s name is Robert Peterson the book is Out of body experiences how to have them and what to expect. Personally I’m not a spiritual man. I’m more on the lines of there is a scientific explanation for all of it but when you experience it yourself it makes you think. I started writing this post February 18th and today is April 3rd since then my neck has gotten better but is very sore in a couple weeks I go see my physician that did the surgery and I believe I start therapy. I have also have decreased on the controlled substance what a long road of recovery.

well that’s all
