viral treatment, the trial

this sciatica has been a real pain in the buttocks down the leg
to my big toe and foot
the meds i take help but if i max them out i feel like im stoned

this weekend i may have found a treatment
it was 100% effective

on sat am i went to the habitat for humanity house on which i will
help do the landscaping
its a repossessed house which actually was well cared for
i discussed the landscape plans with the future owner
then i helped cleans the walls and doors to get ready for
repainting next week

the standing and getting up on a stool seemed to really flair
up my sciatica
so i went home early got in the hot tub
took a hydrocodone for pain
and i didnt really get up sat evening all day sunday and this am
except for rapid trips to the bathroom
fever chills and no appetite
you know its bad when i dont want a cup of coffee

its interesting though that my sicatica  has not hurt me since sat
morning until this morning when ive been up more than the last
two days

maybe bed rest is better for sciatica than previously known
maybe its the virus thats causing the gi upset thats making it

ive enjoyed the pain free two days but sure dont like the nausea
body aches fever the lack of appetite and the frequent trips
to the john

i hope this viral treatment works as i about to enter phase 2 of
my treatment regiment
an epidural injection which i dont mind doing if it helps
i realize the chances are about 50+% chance it will work

well see


ive thought about the zimmerman trial a lot
and not sure how i would have voted if i was on the jury

the jury is isolated from the social media and new media so
they arent influenced by any of that

the question was was zimmerman defending himself

we only wish that zimmerman wouldnt have got out of that car
and that trayvon would have hauled it home then this fight that
resulted in his death would not have happened

so the question is was zimmerman defending himself

the jurors thought he was

that is the end of the criminal legal side of this story
there is a social side of this story though that appears not covered
by the legal system very well
i dont think it will ever go away
maybe it shouldnt

im just glad i wasnt on the jury
