It's no fun reading about people's pain. Contrary to the belief of some, it's even LESS fun writing about ones' own pain. If anyone thinks I, or most people, would rather get attention from their pain than from ANY other human attribute, that person needs far more help than I do. Also, I am not apologizing for anything I write about. If someone doesn't like it, no one's forcing them to read it.
As far as what I achieve, even flat on my back, I have elicited the help of a Senator, who contributed to a massive nationwide investigation into illegal acts against disabled insurance policy holders. This action forced the reopening of many closed cases. I don't expect a pat on the back for this, the action was its' own reward.
I enjoy blogging. I've always enjoyed writing, even college papers. I hope someone finds something useful in what I write here.
