Back from the Abyss
by Stephen Lendman
been ill and unable to do what I love best for 2 months. Yesterday,
August 6, I came home for the first time since hospitalized on June 4.
the time, I posted a brief message on my blog site. I expected a few
days of treatment. Then home to resume my writing and media work.
Things didn't turn out that way. I owe my friends, colleagues and readers an explanation.
problems developed. One rather serious one. Thankfully they were
resolved. But it took time - 2 weeks at Northwestern Memorial Hospital
followed by 6 weeks at Warren Barr rehab facility.
experience was life changing. I wondered at times if I'd ever be me
again. I still have lots of recovery to go as an outpatient.
worked very hard with good therapy people helping me daily. I'm deeply
grateful to them for taking me from a very low point to going home
It never felt so good to walk through my front door. I began emailing friends and colleagues to explain. More emailing coming.
responses came. Means so much to this old guy - age 80 in mid-August.
Still with so much I want to do - articles, media work and another book
or 2 - maybe more as able.
slowly get back to what I love best. My health, of course, is top
priority. Later this morning I have hours of treatment at Northwestern
Mem. Hosp and weekly after that for 2 months followed by monthly
treatment for a year.
working with wonderful doctors. Some personal friends. They know what I
do. They want me back in full swing. Will take time. I'm very patient.
et al will come as able. Important not to overdue it. Yet what i love
best is therapeutic - for the mind, soul and body. I'm fully committed
to return to a much full health as possible - my top priority.
great thanks to everyone now wishing me well. I was offline,
unconnected with no email addresses so unable to communicate until now.
Physically for a good while I wasn't in good shape enough to do it.
Now I'm back. My output won't be my customary 2 articles a day. I'll do what I can as health and strength permits.
