Here I am, ready to join the masses and start a blog. I am ready to ramble about my exciting life to some and not so exciting life to others. At first, I was going to write random rants and thoughts, but then decided I would like to write about my experiences with workers compensation, lawyers, surgeries, doctor appointments, chronic pain and other "exciting" events that happen because of my work related injury. I am hoping this blog will help someone new to the workers compensation system and help prepare them for the constant hoop jumping that they are about to endure. I wish when I was twenty-two (when my work injury happened) there was a blog out there that prepared me for what I was about to go through. I guess that is the main reason why I am about to put my last nine and a half years out there, hoping it can/will help someone. I am sure there will be some random thoughts, stories, and rants thrown into this blog…my life is interesting to say the least. At times, we all need a laugh (even if it is at the expense of ourselves) to spice up the day. So sit down and hold on, get ready to experience one full-on non-stop mind fuck of a life, MY LIFE!
