I had my first appointment at Pain Management Clinic, Portsmouth on November 1 (that is, since I've been back in the Naval healthcare system). The good old Portsmouth Naval Medical Center. I was last there for pain managment three years ago this January. Some of the doctors and nurses remembered me. In fact, the doctor I have there now was one of the doctors who treated me while I was attending BJU.
He has suggested that I try another Spinal Cord Stimulator. Although I'm not keen to go through the process again, he might be right that it worked before and might work better with a new system. He preferes to use a different company than I had before. He believes his brand is tried and true. I will not be having any SCS procedures until January 2007 at the earliest.
I started playing this starship (i.e., Startrek) builder program that I've had forever and only used one time...and now I'm hooked. I've built my own starship (I have several others too) cristened the U.S.S. Shakespeare, NCC 23455. It is Akira class, very cool looking, maybe I can upload a picture somehow.
Anyway, there's not much action to the game. You just have to go through numbers and statistics, then fly missions to get credits to build your fleet.
It's amusing enough. Plus the missions can be run in stealth mode so you don't have to sit there and stare at the screen. It runs in the background and you make money (or lose it depending on your outfitting choices) without knowing it.
