Everyone an apology. I have always conducted business in an open manner, sometimes to my own fault. I especially owe Ernie and Beth and the entire SPSC and the out-going board an apology for my comments, emails, etc. over the past days and weeks.

After receiving some eye opening emails from both Ernie and Beth, luckily I had my monthly Doctor's appointment last night at the VA. They always want a progress report, what I've been doing, etc.

I printed out everything that has been transpiring, not only about the SPSC but other things in my personal life.

As you all know I had a 2nd stroke not long ago... a little more severe than the first one. They put me on a new medication about 2 or 3 weeks ago.. I'm still not sure what it's suppose to do... but when the Doctor's saw what I had been up to... they knew something was wrong... particularly knowing my past actions.

They immediately began a few tests... it didn't take long to see the problem. I was taking the wrong dosage... not their fault, but mine. I did not read the label correctly. I had turned into a modern day Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

"Well Ollie, here's another fine mess you've gotten us into"

They said I was over-dosing my new medication and it had the effect one me of being... ummm let's say "grouchy".

However, they said the new, correct dosage would take 2 weeks to even itself out. They decided to give me an injection of God knows what last night. Apparently it is an accelerator or something that will bring my system up to speed almost immediately. They said in 6 to 8 hours.

I woke up this morning and could feel the change within me immediately. So this morning, once I had my coffee, I went back and re-read many emails that I've sent out. "Holy Shit" was my reaction. No wonder people think I am a kookie bird and hate me.

This is an attempt to right what has been wronged. To Ernie and Beth I apologize again, for some of my emails. In one way I am saddened at what has been caused... BUT looking at it in a positive vein... It was this SPSC situation that discovered and high-lighted what was happening to me.

I hope people understand that I am not a vindictive person, nor have I ever been (well, except for the past few weeks anyway)

I promise from here on out to read every prescription bottle I have much more carefully... and if I start acting strange or goofy, I give Ernie complete permission to knock me in the head.

Again friends, I am sorry if I upset you... eek

It takes a real man to stand before his peers and present himself in this manner. Denny, when we first met about 2 years ago, I thought to myself, this man seems like a stand up guy. Someone I could relate to in many ways. I knew, in my heart, that there must be some explanation for the way things were going. I am extreamly happy that your doctors found that reason and have taken steps to correct it and return to us the Denny we love and respect.

I "WILL" take you up on your offer to pop you a good one if you screw up your meds again ! laugh

Actually, I knew something was wrong when I found myself actually liking my ex-wife and her mother. It was then that I knew I needed help! :rolleyes:

But seriously, I do appreciate Beth's comments to me in email and your comments Ernie as well as Shannon's above. eek

Denny, good advice that everyone should heed. 35 yrs. ago when Jeanie was about to give birth to Janelle she saw her dr. and he gave her script for something and it was take 1 every 4 hr. She thought it was 4 every hr. After 8 hrs. it was the fastest dilivery ever with Janelle being a preme with jaundice. Ya gota read and think about what you read. Bye for now, D. cool

That was supposed to say "good character". A rare commodity nowadays.

Hi Denny:

Sure glad you found out about this before it caused serious damage to your health.

Know from experience with family members that improper dosage or interactions can have quite dramatic results.

Take care.

(not the same Beth referred to in Denny's post)

Denny, my man. You've got to look after yourself.

It will take me 20 years (and MANY, many french fries) to save up money to get to Houston to see you. Hang on there, sloopy!

(P.S. I cleared it with everybody if you need to swear, Denny, so go ahead and do it if you want to, do it, do it till you're satisfied..)
