Sword of Damocles Time Again

I’ve been dreading this for the past month, and today’s the day.

I have to refill my prescriptions again, which means another trip to the doctor’s office. That means four transfers from and to my power chair to the Honda: once to get in to drive to the office, to the manual chair, back to the Honda, then finally back to the power chair when I get home.

It’s like roller skating on the edge of the Grand Canyon, as I’ve said before, no exaggeration about it. My legs are that unsteady and untrustworthy.

It’s unlikely that anything bad will happen, but should I end up on the concrete floor next to my brains, will someone who knows me get over here and refund those donations, please? My mom is a complete Luddite, hates computers, and will jab randomly at keys without effect if she tries to get in my machine. I’m leaving the appropriate P/W in a text file on my desktop…thanks!

This really is like having the Sword of Damocles hanging over me, and I don’t know how many times I can get away with it.

About Glenn Horowitz

I'm a 20 year civil courier pilot, retired by multiple sclerosis. From summer of 2011 until December 2013 my efforts went mostly to my first blog, Get Glenn Mobile, to raise the funds needed to convert my Honda Element for wheelchair access and end my virtual housebound confinement. This was realized just after Christmas 2013 when I was able to acquire a superb X-WAV Element, already modified for my use. Though the original goal wasn't met, what was raised, plus my Honda, plus the proceeds of the sale from my mother's car were enough to make it happen. It's an amazing story in itself! Now, after my release from homebound prison, I can augment the journalistic work I'm doing for the American Daily Herald by getting out in public, talking with people, perhaps even getting some media attention to explain why someone as disabled as I am knows these unfunded entitlement programs like Social Security and its 'disability insurance' are bogus and do more harm than good, and in fact why the whole welfare/warfare state is contrived to keep the gravy train rolling for those who benefit while they drain our resources and eat out our substance. Why 'public education' is really public INDOCTRINATION that's become a meat grinder destroying our youth and our future. Why the fiat currency foisted on us by the Federal Reserve for a hundred years has destroyed the dollar and will without doubt cause its collapse. On and on the list goes, and I want to talk with the world about these vital matters.

  1. Good luck, brother. Stay safe.

  2. Thanks, Nick! Got back a little while ago and all’s well. As suspected it was NOT fun, though I can drive fine and the breeze while driving with the open window I’ve been craving was truly sublime,

    I was just a bit out of practice. I’ll be delighted when I can drive the Honda without risk again, but days like this sure make me miss driving fast down a twisty road in my Miata convertible ;)
