Medical

In late February 2022, I decided to incorporate my IHaveSomeNerve blog into the AverageJoeWeekly blog. 

Everything in the medical category prior to that date is from the old blog. Here is the homepage text from that blog.

Wow, do I have some nerve, well really it should be plural, as I have some nerves. But that really doesn’t sound right. This blog is about my journey through the maze of doctors, tests, procedures, and medications as they try to figure out what the hell is wrong with me. Basically, I have some yet undetermined neurological condition that goes back 15 years now.

Since I didn’t start this blog until 2019, I’m going to have to go back, way back into the archives of my brain to recall some of this older stuff, but it is really important to see everything as a whole. good thing that I kept notes throughout the years. Once I get all the history out of the way, then it will be a more traditional daily type blog, but for sure not every day.

If this is your first time here, start here and click the next post at the bottom right to read the posts in order.

I would like to thank my wife and two children for helping me through all this and being my support system. You guys really help me through the hard times and you have had to put up with a bunch of them over the past dozen or so years.

Notice: This is my blog, not your soapbox. I speak my mind and it is often unfiltered, if you get upset or offended, I could care less. You can simply surf off to the next website. I’m offended that you are offended, so don’t even bother wasting your time complaining, it will fall on deaf ears.
