It's been an interesting day. I sat down by the pool under a shaded canopy and worked on brain recovery, when finally we walked to the dog park with Zinny. I noticed that my head and leg issues were improving from the new drugs, but now my lower back hurts. I just can't win lately.

I now understand what happened about a month ago. I was giving up on life, looking for a way out, and I was succeeding.

My motivation to continue has improved now, a bit. I know that people care about and want me to survive. I can't give up now, I have to find a way to win this job called life.
