I am busy being retired and getting fit. Coming up on the start of my 29th year using hemodialysis and I have recommitted to seeing how far I can take relying on a a medical procedure to replace renal function. I have a new project that I am excited about but want to get DTS up and going before talking too much it.
My hands are not what they use to be, I can't make a fist or snap my fingers. It hurts to type and use a mouse after just a short time at the computer. My hand's weakness and pain with use is why I retired from the Union on a disability pension. I can't make signs for more than a couple hours and sitting at a computer - moving to the office side of the business - left me feeling worse. Disability retirement could be temporary but work would have to fit the life I have designed and look forward to.
SEN will have posts - I will have one (or several) posts on pain and the treatment of pain just not very often. I don't feel video discussions are really in my swing space - I'd need a producer. Twitter however, has been a good fit. The nephrology Twitter community is fun and interesting to interact with, give it a try and follow me @BillPeckham I like the constraint and the brevity of 140 characters but when needed I like being able to post longer commentary as a thread. Check it out.
My right hand is numb so time to stop. Hope to see you on twitter, occasionally here and soon through DTS.
