and so it goes…

Well dear Blog family, it appears that my time behind the front desk has come to an end permanently.

Tests are still being run to determine why I am still having seizures and migraines but they have given me some answers that will cause me to end my front desk career.

I have been diagnosed with a form of dementia. This form of the disease makes it almost impossible for me to multitask and be able to a procedural job like a hotel clerk. Basically, I can’t talk and type at the same time. It has basically taken me 10 minutes just to type this part of the blog.  You should see me try to make coffee and a bagel all at once in the morning. It also impacts my short term memory so I can’t remember things from one day to the next or even a few minutes some times. or a few minutes some times… just kidding… not really.

So where do we and I go from here? Well that depends on where the rest of the tests go in the next several months. I still need to figure these seizures and migraines out. They are less frequent than they have been. I have applied for disability but that is a very tedious situation at best. I had a couple things smoldering before all this happened so while I may not be able to be behind a desk checking you in and telling funny and strange stories here that doesn’t mean you won’t still be able to see those stories as long as I am able to physically able to provide those stories in one form or the other. So, I will no longer be posting on this blog but my twitter account will stay open posting health updates and hopefully down the road (a short road) some good news for once.

Thanks for all the well wishes and the contributions.

  1. I am sorry to hear this news. I wish you all the best in the future. There are many new medications for dementia, and I’m sure your neurologist will find an appropriate treatment for you. Thank you for the entertaining posts you have given to us in the past, and I hope we continue to hear from you from time to time. Best wishes.

  2. The other day, I asked Bonnie if she knew how you were doing. Sending good thoughts your way and hoping that medical science will sort through this. Your blog has brought me a lot of joy. Perhaps I will sign up for a twitter account so I can follow you. All the best, Vegas HC.
