We are a few days out from the end of the first month of the new year. Where in the hell has the last 30 days gone? It can go a bit quicker and get out of Summer already and cool down a bit.
Anyway, when starting to write this post it is still 28.1°C (82.58°F) and it is 2am, it is hot as hell and I can’t sleep, even with the aircon and fans running. For some reason at night, this unit is hotter than it feels throughout the day. Strange, but not much I can do about it.
Let’s do a few updates as this first month of 2024 is coming to an end and already I am way off track to what I had planned for this year. Let’s get started.
On the night of Australia Day, January 26th 2024, I got a phone call around 9.30pm informing me that my closest friend (in Australia) passed away approx. an hour prior. I am not going into how he passed as I don’t think I could handle writing about it. It is hard enough just writing this little people.
Jeffrey, you were only 32 years old. You came into my life like lightning and left just as quickly. You were like a younger brother to me more than you were a friend. Even though it has only been 4 days since the news came through I am still devasted. Should have news in the next day or two about the funeral arrangements. Then I need to arrange for an emergency support worker shift to get me to and from. What a day that is going to be for a support worker right? Having to take a client to a funeral and stay with them throughout the inter-service and afterwards to a person they have never even met before.
There were plans for us to launch on the afternoon of February 3rd 2024. However, this is having to be delayed again. Why? 2 staffing changes and fixing the final bugs in our gaming server resources. If only they would stop updating the inter fucking resources so often. Do a major fix and then work in the background until the next release, unless there is a security issue within the resource then just release a hotfix.
It was also time to get my focus back to what I wanted from SoreEyesRP in the beginning. It is time I got back to my vision and stop letting it get clouded over petty drama. It’s time to get this community launched and then let the fun and games begin.
To the most point, the falls from the new wheelchair have stopped. I still have the occasional one, but not very often anymore. Thank goodness. The getting just to the transfer process due to the height increase has also improved and things are so far going alright.
It turns out I am also going to have issues with my prosthetic. And this is because from the knee down to the end of the stump it has bent to the point where it is difficult to get the prosthetic on. So does this mean I am giving up? No, I am not giving up at all, even though sometimes I want to. It is not going to be easy unless I allow them to operate to put some pins and straighten the bone. I have declined the surgery. If this means I will be forever more in a wheelchair, then so be it. I can’t handle going through any more surgeries. There is still a bit of hope at the moment and will just have to monitor and see how it goes. But honestly, it’s not looking good.
As it is now nearly 2.30am I am going to end this post here (there will be more soon) as I have to be awake at 7am to get ready and a support worker arriving at 9am to get me to an appt. that is highly important. Whether I can get any sleep or not due to the heat is another thing. But, I do have plenty of things that I can do to keep me busy.
For now, see ya and write again very soon.
