24 Feet Times 2
So I kept my promise to a friend this weekend to go to the boardwalk. Even though I was under the weather, I still had a really good time. Well I also can say I can cross one thing off my life list.
You know those climbing walls you see at amusements parks and carnivals? Well being under the weather I still tried to climb one of those walls. To my surprise I made it up the beginner wall which was 24 feet with no problem.
Then since you get two climbs, I tried the intermediate wall. I got to the top of that also which was 24 feet with no problem. When I came down from my second climb, the kids running the climbing booth congratulated me on my climbs. That was a real ego boost for me.
Now when I'm feeling better, I want to go back and try the expert wall just for fun. Santa Cruz also has a wall climbing gym called Pacific Edge I want to try. Their wall is 50 feet tall and I think I would have a blast trying that wall.
I have been coughing a lot for the past week and a half. Yesterday I awoke early to try to see my doctor. Well I arrived about 7:30 am and went threw the proper steps to see him. There was one catch yesterday. The place I go to the computer had crashed so they couldn't look up anything!!
They had a print out of appointments from Friday and gave me a morning appointment to see a doctor at 9:45 then told me the gave the appointment to someone else. They told me to go home and call them at 11:00 so I did what I was told.
The computer rebooted by then and was told now I had to wait till after 1:00 to see if my doctor would see me. So I waited again for another 2 hours. When I called back I was told the person I needed to check in with was in a meeting. So I waited again till 2:00 and still no one hadn't check with my doctor to see if he could see me.
She was still in a meeting and my last gay nerve was plucked by this time. I called one of the nurses who deal with HIV/AIDS to see if she would talk to my doctor to see if he could see me. About 15 minutes later, I get a call from her to say he could see me.
When arrived back at my doctors office they finally let me in and put me into a room. Now this is about 2:30 pm and I've been trying since 7:30 in the morning. He listened to my chest and didn't like what he herd. He was afraid I had pneumonia so I had a chest x-ray and some blood drawn.
Well my chest was clear (thank god) and I have a bad respiratory infection so he wrote a script for the infection. I went to my pharmacy and I waited another hour and a half to get that filled. So let me just tell you it took 11 1/2 hours to deal with this health issue. No wonder Michael Moore thinks the health care system in this country is "Sicko!"
Men Are Pigs
So I went to a July 4th party which had about 100 gay men when I arrived at the party. I was having a good time and had a few glasses of wine. Then someone who I liked came up to me who I knew said"Hey dude I've been thinking a lot about you." I said "Sure why don't we get together." Well then I saw him sucking face with everyone in the place who I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole.
Then some other guys who said they were interested led me on and flaked too. I have decided all men are pigs. Is it too much to ask for someone in there 20's to 30's. Is it too much to ask for someone who's not fat, bald, old, ugly, or all of the above.
I've tried to put myself back on the market by going places and on the world wide web. I think right now all I want to do is sleep, eat and work and say "To hell with all men!!" I've worked my butt off trying to get into shape for the HIV/AIDS retreat. I've worked my butt off getting into shape for pride. I've worked my butt of getting in shape for this party.
Every time I try to put myself to maybe date again or even have a one night stand, I'm the one that gets hurt and disappointed. Well to hell with the universe and men!! To hell with the people who say to me you are so hot but won't even give me a chance. To hell with love!!
A Bad Day
Today was a bad day dealing with my HIV. I was hurling all morning and to boot I've had a massive headache all day. It's about 9:00 pm when I'm writing this and I'm only starting to feel better. I hope this is the last hurray for awhile. I'm sick of being sick right now and could use something nice to happen in my life right now.
