Jesse James Doty: I have a request for all those on Fanstory.
If you are going to play music when I click on your post, would you please put the words, 'Music embedded' in the line above your title? I would greatly appreciate your thoughtfulness and courtesy.
My reason is simple. I live in an apartment building and I do not want to disturb my neighbors while they sleep since I read and review most of the time in the early morning hours.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

    Ric Myworld: Congratulations on your great story and second-place ribbon! A vote or two and the color of a ribbon doesn't make anyone a winner or a loser. We are all winners just to have been in the contest and had the chance for fellow FanStorians to read our stories. Congrats again, my friend!

Jesse James Doty: I fell -- Broke my neck -- ER Surgery.
Have been recuperating in a hospital and then a nursing home.
4 months later, I arrive back home
and am slowly adjusting to my new life.
Please bear with me and understand
that although I am behind in participating,
it still feels good to know that you are there waiting for me...

    Mrs. KT: Geesh!
    The rhyming above was NOT intentional!
    But the positive energy and healing thoughts are! :)

    trimple: Dear Jesse

    My husband broke his neck c6/c7 27 years ago and is paralysed from the chest down. If any advice can be shared, it's to say live normally and just make allowances for the condition, rather than have it be the top priority in life.

    LateBloomer: JJ, I'm not on FS very much since my cancer, but with all of the fires in CA, I thought of you and hoped that you were well and safe. I'm so very sorry to hear about your accident. Take care of yourself. The light is always on at FS and it is always ready to welcome us. Sincerely, LateBloomer

    Joan E.: I am very sorry for my late response, but I just spotted this alarming comment while searching for a post I might have missed. This is a nightmare, and I am so sorry you had to endure it. I hope that you have mostly healed by now and there are no lasting problems. Take good care of yourself. Gentle hugs- Joan

    Wendy G: Oh Jesse, so sorry to hear that! Let's hope you get back to normal quickly, with full recovery. Just realised you wrote that a while ago, so hopefully you are going really well now).
    If you go to my portfolio you will find a story written by my Sunny, called 'A Special Death'. I think you will enjoy it.

    Michele Harber: I?m so sorry about your eye issues but, despite that, you still managed to get honorable mention as Reviewer of the Month. Now I?m doubly impressed. That?s also quite a lot of support you?re getting from your FanStory friends. Take care and feel better.
    February 1, 2020 at 5:01PM
    Jesse James Doty: Thanks, Michele, you're right. Everybody's been so supportive.
    And, thanks, Irish Rain and mrsmajor. I appreciate the caring advice from all of you. Giving me the time I need, will help ease my stress and ease my eyes, as well.

Jesse James Doty: This is a brief note for those who care about me. My eyes are compromised due to their muscle spasms. They hurt and my sight is dimmer. The doctor said it is stress-related, so I am working on ways to lower my stress level. I will keep you posted on my progress.

Jesse James Doty: I found this quote that I can relate to,
"I want people to react to my work, to think, to question, to challenge, to cry and laugh and feel."----John Lanyon

    poetsteve15: I added to my buddy list. Glad to have you.

Jesse James Doty: Two of my favorite sayings are "Encourage diversity" and "Challenge authority."

I want to thank all of you for responding so positive to my poem which is on a subject so controversial as homelessness.

Jesse James Doty: It's hard to become critical and compassionate at the same time!
August 28, 2015 at 5:06AM
    rama devi: Simply a matter of attitude! :)
    August 28, 2015 at 10:15AM
    rama devi: PS--'constructive' critique is positive...not 'destructive'.
    August 28, 2015 at 10:16AM
    mrsmajor: Follow your heart and be truthful, but remember encouragement is the key...Your efforts to do that will give you peace...if your help is not accepted, then you can do no more...
    August 28, 2015 at 3:54PM
    Jesse James Doty: Yes, it is. It is a sure sign of someone who is confident and comfortable in their own skin who can reach out tactfully to others and have no vested interest in whether they take the advice or criticism or not.
    Peace, Jesse James
    September 6, 2015 at 6:45AM
