I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be,
but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.

What's Going On

Crazy final semester at MGCCC, as I expected it to be. Classes are going well. I have A's and B's for now, with World Lit being my best class with a near-perfect score (I can do English. It's Algebra that I can't do). Sociology is somewhat interesting and our discussions about culture and crime have been passionate. Health & Wellness is challenging, as I can do nothing in the vicinity of exercise, but have to make it sound like I do. Hope my teacher likes fiction...hehe! No seriously, she is aware of my situation and she said it's fine. I'm doing my best and I think she is noting that. The first unit test was brutal...wow. I was afraid I had failed it (as others did) but I managed an 80 B. Hopefully the rests of my exams will go a little better. As for Algebra, I'm half way through the course, but the big test is coming up and I am not ready for it at all. I'll try to knock it out early next week before I head to Jackson for a couple days of evaluations at UMMC.

In Jackson, I will meet with Dr. V at the Muscular Dystrophy clinic, stay overnight, then meet with a sleep specialist to discuss the possibility of a CPAP or BiPAP. I am having significant trouble breathing lately...it's getting harder...and my Internist is concerned about me having Sleep Apnea. He doesn't want to put me on oxygen, but he obviously doesn't want me to die either. I can't pay for a sleep study (they already told me it's $3000 up front and they don't do indigent care), but I'll let ya know what the specialist says in our meeting.

I can't sit up anymore...talk to y'all soon.
