Jim Ross is back with another blog update on jrsbarbq.com. Here are some of the highlights:
– The Bret Hart content on Monday Night Raw really added to the overall viewing experience of the program. I watched the show from start to finish and I felt like it was one of the better Raw broadcasts WWE has presented in several weeks.
– Since becoming ill in October, I can’t begin to tell you how many doctor’s appointments that I have had and how many times I have given blood for “more tests.” Well, the latest tests were not stellar but once again my primary physician feels that the specialist has over reacted to some degree regarding the diagnosis. Thus far I have been “diagnosed” with MS and borderline diabetes not to mention stress issues and high blood pressure. Living with these diagnosis hasn’t been the most fun that I’ve had but, as the King would say, one can’t grieve forever.
The good news is that I do not have MS, that my diabetes issues are reverseable with a strict diet and exercise regime of which I have immersed myself in, and that I have to do all I can to reduce unnecessary stress in my life.
I have been on a major diet for about 6 weeks and have become a regular at the gym. I’m “over the hump” regarding my diet and exercise program and have been feeling great. I still have my “issues’ with Bells palsy #3 but it’s improving. The right eye problems are prevelant but I’m dealing with them. Some days are better than others. It’s no hill for a stepper as my Dad used to say. Many, many other folks have it so much worse and my problems are minor, solvable and will allow me to get back in the saddle some day. When that day does come I am positive that I will be better than ever if for nothing else because I’m going to be much healthier.
In the mean time we are in the process of making some major changes that affect my stress level. They are going to be tough changes to make but are necessary for the long haul. We’ll have more on these matters over the next few weeks.
Bottom line, I am hopeful that my health continues to improve and that I am able to return to ringside sooner than later. Whether that is weekly, monthly or some other combination thereof is still to be determined but I am determined to get back in the game.
