Welcome back Ridcully, sorry to hear about the accident but I hope you're ok now. Here's a tune of Adam and the Ants before they became 'cool'. (Personally, I think they were at their coolest pre 'Kings of the Wild Frontier' album when they were more a punk group.) :D



I had that album!

Ah, that's sweet of you all. Tnx Tony, Joolz, Christian, Dotsie, Who's and Penfold (sorry if I forgot someone)! Really appreciate it. :romance-grouphug:

However, the accident's almost 7 years ago. I do not want to bother you guys with the details, but for the past almost 3 years I have been receiving so-called 'facet denervaties' (sorry, no idea what the English word is) to try alleviate the pain (which was so bad I lost my job as a Management Assistant). I have had 19 so far. Anyhoo... the pain is a little less but the end is still not in sight. *sigh* Ah well. Some days are better than others, as for all of us.

Great to be back here, though and I will try to keep up ;)

@Dotsie; not everyone would agree with you ;) :whistle:

@Joolz: thanks for this! This is exactly the vid that inspired me (although I remembered using far more colours and stripes Image :D ).

@Penfold: I appreciate you trying to teach me something, but humble little me still prefers 'stand and deliver'; I have never been much of a punk fan. Sorry :oops:

Ridcully, so sorry about the pain you're in. :( Has it been that bad since the accident? Hope you're able to find something to help soon.

That is so sweet Catch-up, tnx for the support.
Yes, it has but the "facetdenervaties' have brought some relief (albeit very, very, very slowly and painfully). Having said that; after the last 5 (end last year) I have not once been able to walk the dog without pain and that is a bit of a bummer.
Today I have finally decided to ask for a second opinion because I am sick to tears of all these horrible 'denervaties'. Jay, me, right? Ah well, better late than never, I guess.

Again, thanks for asking everyone and now let's focus on fun things, like; explain your avatar :)

For some reason, I've been using psychotic alter-egos as avatars lately. I used Hyde from the BBC series Jekyll for my previous avatar, and now, I've used a screenshot of Dark Yugi from the original version of Yu-Gi-Oh!. Oh, and the quote is from the Abridged version of the scene in my avatar.
"What have you been doing since you stole that antique TARDIS of yours, since you first landed on Skaro? Shouting 'Look at me!!! I'm not fighting a war!', while you battle the Daleks all the way through space and time."

I think getting a second opinion is a great idea. I hope you find some relief soon!

Crossing my fingers too, constant pain is a bummer.
Of all the forces in the universe, the hardest to overcome is the force of habit. Gravity is easy-peasy by comparison.
