Hey everyone. Sorta back. I still don't want to commit to rping, but probably, like relearning how to ride a bike, I might accept or restart with some of my rp partners. We moved, and my partner is trying to get up from the bed. I got him a lift and stand assist device which is somehow working. I still haven't finished unpacking, but we are doing much better in a bigger place with lots of room. I am still a bit overwhelmed. We got some wonderful people helping us. I didn't do much, and we have friends from Arizona who came down to help and practically wanted me to sit down and eat while they do everything. I didn't even finish packing everything, and they did that for me. I have such wonderful friends, our next-door new best friends, and our wonderful friend who brought her entire family to help me move too. Such wonderful people, I thank God for them every day.

I don't want to overcommit to playing, but I am eager to get back into action again. Just give me some time; I am a little rusty. The last typing I ever did is to apply as a dispatcher for the police department, which is an experience. Now that I know how it feels like, I might try again. I know now how difficult it is to try to respond to a call while at the same time trying to help someone else. You only have 15 seconds to respond to a 911 call, whether you reach out for the police, the EMTs, the fire department, or utility department like for live wires, flooding, etc. I salute those men and women who work as one and all the nurses and doctors who put their lives on the line. I am still working part-time as a nursing assistant, but I think I am ready for a different line of work, less lifting and strenuous.

So if any of my partners wish to continue, please send me a PM, and I would be more than happy to talk and see if we can work something out :)

I turned 54 today, and things have been looking up. I got a new job, convenient of it though it is just outside our apartment complex: new people and new places, fresh start. Not so stressful, I hope. On the down low, my partner had two more amputations, and they cut the tips of his two toes, infection. And I am happy that they caught it before it spread. A physical therapist is coming this Sunday, so hopefully, things look good.

I am still back in trying to write, trying new stuff, and improving my writing. Some of my old partners also stopped responding or ghosted me, but it is what it is. I guess it was time to moved on. Looking for new partners or just enjoying most of my old buddies. :)

Healthwise, I am not as healthy as I was ever since the pandemic started. High blood pressure and my blood sugar are high too. Once I get my new schedule back to the gym, I will see which days I need to work out—no more soda and sugar. I am enjoying the last of it until then, lol.

Epitaph

When I was getting his headstone. The kind man who helped me was also named Jess. said I can write a song at the back of his headstone. It could be a song or a poem. So here is what I wrote for him:

You had crippled me when you passed so suddenly; it felt like one of my limbs had been wrenched out of my clutches as to how much I had been trying to hold on to you so tight.

The pain is still there, and I still get teary-eyed when I glance at your picture hanging on the wall. Even the images that are hanging on the walls of my heart. You are my everything, my soulmate, and I felt robbed of my everything, and that is you. I don't think I would ever be the same without you. You are my mantra, my sutra, the red thread that binds us. I am your alpha, and you are my omega, so I guess my heart is gone with you. You took it from me. I am just a shell of a person that once have you. Now am just living and functioning each day, trying to make new sense of my life because my will to live and the reason for breathing are no longer here.

I will try to move on without you but don't get too comfortable over there; it might be a while until I can join you but make sure that you save that spot next to you. That is only mine and mine alone. As to you are mine and mine alone. I love you with the depth and breadth of my soul. My baba. I love you forever.
