"There is no coming to consciousness without pain"
Well, I just got here. That's not really true anymore, but all this still feels new and exploration-worthy to me.
I'm not really good with this whole 'talk about myself' affair, so if you'd want to know what, why and how I got into all of this, please read the story of my personal ascension.
I definitely seem to have developed a passion for body suspension. And because this community seems to be THE place to be to live that passion, I decided to join your little world here. I want to learn as much as I can about it.
No Forum - but I like getting messages. And don't be afraid of the tracking thingie; it doesn't bite.

She got hit by a piece of farm equipment (farmers who don't know how to drive a tractor :() and broke both her hind legs yesterday.
She underwent surgery today in an animal clinic. They put in titanium braces into her legs and the Drs say it's most likely she will eventually recover fully. But right now, life's pretty sad. She's really a pitiful sight, heavily medicated and largely motionless. It's like having a sick kid, or probably worse as kids can at least talk where she only has those sad blue eyes...
Posted those to her FB already, but then there's friends in here who don't have access to that site. So, here you go - sadness impersonated:
It's going to be a tough next few weeks.

Sitting in what appears to have become some kind of home away from home lately (London Heathrow, Galleries First lounge) having lunch and waiting to board my flight that's getting me to Hawaii where I'll spend a week vacationing with a very special IAM friend.
Tropical paradise, here I come!
Jorda is fine again No more health issues, and she's happier than ever because she now has a companion for those daily forest-escape adventures. For a dog turning ten soon, she's amazingly fit.

it was amazing to see the whole family be affected by Jorda's state. In guess in some way she's like the grandkid we so far have failed to materialize to my parents...
Anyway, the seizures have not returned, and she's back to her normal active self. Very happy about that. I love that the vet recommended to 'wait and see' instead of putting her on medication (with heavy side effects) right away. I want back to work today and she was alone for the first time in two weeks...

is off to no good a start.
Went to celebrate with my family, and right when festivities concluded at 1:30 this morning, Jorda had a seizure. And another one half a day later right after we came home from our midday hike.
So it's taking another two days off work and off to the animal clinic tomorrow.

and *boom*, another year has passed and I'm older again. Scary how time just seems to fly.
Lots of things happened since I last wrote on here. Let's see:
So, first and foremost, Aurora (LotN) and Sabrina finally came visiting and we have spent two awesome vacationing weeks around France, Switzerland and Germany (with a quick visit to Austria thown in for good measure) last month, just before I left for Mecca suscon. About time this happened; I remember us talking about this first in 2009! check her page for details; she's so much better than me about writing and updating :).
During this time, Jorda lost her eyesight and became blind. Luckily, this turned out to be temporary. She's still on medication and suffers from impaired vision especially at night but things are on the mend.
Then, last weekend, I went to Omaha and attended Mecca suscon. It was good seeing all my suspension community friends again, and a lot of fun was had. This event is great, and I can only encourage anyone into hanging from hooks to go there next year. Hopefully I can convince Stanislav to attend this next year - this would be the ideal venue to show his stuff in the US!
anyway, I'm beyond tired and my bed beckons, so thanks everybody for the birthday wish messages and good night!
