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...

    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

Jesse James Doty: I'm sorry. Although my eyes are improving, I still need lots of rest for my eyes, in between small stints on Fan Story. I hope you will have patience with me. Thanks, again for your special thoughts and wishes.

    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
