It’s been a while since I did one of these updates, the last one being from July 25 and mostly touched on training and nutrition. Well, a lot have happened since then. If you’re on our uncensored community Ungovernable.se, you know some of it, and I also hinted about some things in my articles as of late. So, let’s rewind to the end of July, 2022.
When I wrote my last update, things were strolling along as they’ve done for the last couple of years. I was slowly recovering from my brain/brainstem injury, my oversensitivity, and mental fatigue symptoms. Then a waterpipe burst in our apartment complex, damaging at least 8 apartments opposite the stairwell of mine. So, reparations immediately followed by probably the worst and slowest crew of carpenters in the history of carpentry. Yes, they’re still at it. Anyhow, they would drill for 15 or 30 minutes, then make some other noise, then have a coffee break or they simply buggered off to another job, only to return a few hours later and make noises again for a short while. Back and forth, every day. Totally erratic and dragging it all out for months on months instead of getting it done in few days, then letting it dry, and then rebuild. It’s not until now, four months later that they are in the rebuild stage. While some apartments are still in the drying out stage. Well, as you can imagine, with my over-sensitivity and mental fatigue, that was torture. And although my husky girl did not really care, my older wolfdog male (the watcher of the pack) was freaked out, and I had to spend a lot of time reassuring and calming him. And no, there were no temporary housing available due to my dogs, and I did not have the energy to privately look for a temporary place and move all my stuff and the dogs.
So, needless to say, my recovery progress started to decline. From being able to focus and work for 4 to 6 hours a day, to only 2 to 3 hours.
If you haven’t read my story and how I was close to death in early 2018, take a moment and read about it here:
Then, one morning in late August, my father did not pick up his phone when I routinely called to check in on him and chat as we usually do while I walk my dogs. This have happened a few times as he sometimes turns off his mobile phone by accident, or the battery runs empty. However, he had been detoxing (what some call “flu-like” symptoms) for the last week and although I had been grocery shopping for him just the other day and he was perfectly fine, I still decided to check in on him. To make a long story short, we’re happy I did as I found him laying face down on the floor, unable to get up. He’d been lying there totally helpless for more than 20 hours, only able to whisper. We suspected a stroke, but the hospital only found some fluids in his lungs and blamed it all on the imaginary ‘rona. Frikkin’ useless dimwits.
Now, my father used to walk for one and a half hour every morning, every single day of the week, between 5.00am and 6.30am. And now, over the span of a couple of days, he couldn’t even stand up without someone holding him. He continued to get in and out of the hospital, cursing them for treating him badly and like a fool. Then he was moved to a temporary care facility, and we had to make arrangements for moving him to a new apartment in a retirement home, as he still couldn’t even stand up, much less walk, not even with a walker.
For the first two months, he was very depressed, confined mostly to his bed and in need of a lot of encouragement to even get up into his wheelchair. As of now, he’s up a few hours, watching sports, but still in need of help 4 to 5 times a day.
So, that is what I’ve been occupied with during the last couple of months during the few hours I have energy. Thankfully, my awesome brother has been stepping up a lot. As I write this, we’re still cleaning out his old apartment, going trough all stuff, moving the essentials and such to his new home, storing anything else of value, and recycling/trashing the rest. As he had stored a lot of stuff from my late grandparents, it was a lot to go through.
As for myself, I’m about back to where I was recovery-wise in late 2020. My energy comes and goes and I’ve been pushing my limits for months on end now. We do what we have to do. I know I will be able to turn it around and heal again once everything has settled. As for training, I’ve been at the gym about 2 to 3 times a week on average, just doing quick 30-minutes sessions. I’m still physically strong and look pretty much the same I did half-a-year ago thanks to following our species appropriate and species-specific diet of animal-based foods.
So, yeah, that is the reason why I sometimes have to limit or cut my daily articles short (even though they are part of my rehabilitation.) I need to prioritize my time and energy. Still, despite all this, I’ve been active daily at our uncensored community Ungovernable.se and I’ve put out 160 free articles during the span of 121 days between August to December. All-in-all, I’m at 485 published posts this year, and we still have 26 days to go!
Before I sign off and go meet up with my brother again, I want to thank everyone of you for visiting and reading, and especially to all of you who donate and/or join our community at Ungovernable.se. We’re currently at a point where these two websites pay all my hosting fees and the food bill for me and my dogs. That do help a lot when you only have a few active hours a day. Thank you everyone!
