No Shoes

I got a leg brace yesterday and it is massively helping me to walk in a straight line and use my foot better. The physio told me that it would fit inside my usual shoes.

Soon to have a new member

So I was on my usual fishing site when I stumbled upon a new post labeled "my sister has ms".

So I made a small donation and added to his post pleading for some of the other members to do the same. A little while later I ...

Sleep problems

Again I am starting to have sleep issues. Last night I woke up at 2am. Like as if someone had poured cold water on me. I have taken all the sleep meds but they only work for me on a temp basis. Got up this morning and drove to Pleasure Island, real close to my office, and went fishing on a public pier. It was nice. The wind was blowing real hard, but I caught ...
