My Sincere Apologies to Those I Let Down

Hey guys,
I'm back in the saddle (or on the seat, as it were) again.
I spent some time in the hospital. I got my blood basically recharged for a lack of better terms. Extra vitamin D, iron, potassium, and lithium. Lithium? Geeze, I must be some kind of rechargeable battery. ha

Well, for quite a while I could barely walk across the room without taking a header, dizzy as 773H, so I had to give up the painting for a while.
I tried to keep going, but just couldn't make it. Hey- I know I really let some people down. If you guys are reading this, I sincerely apologize. I love painting and airbrushing, but I couldn't make it from one end of my shop to the other. I truly am sorry for letting you down. Truth is, I was a little depressed that I couldn't perform something I loved. Thank - it was all fixed.

So, I am back in the swing of things. I have a couple bikes lined up and another helmet. Dang, I am so looking forward to it again. I feel more energy than I've had for a year!!! and my motivation is back where it was before all this happened.

If any of you guys feel I really screwed you - give me a chance to make it right. I wasn't myself, BUT I'M BACK. I FEEL "NORMAL". What a relief ! ! !

Interesting post.

Way to "man up" in the face of health issues that you couldn't control. You sound like a stand up guy.

Welcome back to "normal".

weird vitamins and health foods...... screw that !
It's back to good ole steak and baked spuds for me!! Don't mess around with stuff that "so called and self proclaimed health experts" tell you will keep you in excellent condition.

I feel completely normal and I had just bought a new CBR1K before my body got all weird. Now I'm perfectly fine to ride, but someone has got to turn of the RAIN for more than a day.

Started with lots of herbs and homeopathic stuff - nothing really wrong with it unless your body is just one of those that doesn't like that . Things started to get a little weird so I tried "self cure" with other that the moron at (prolly cant mention the name for slader reasons) said I needed to take. Just made it worse by depriving myself of real fargin food and eating weeds and .
I'd just say that if you want to eat more healthy, put good things into your body, build up natural strength, etc, etc, talk to a real Dr. before you take the advice of a guy that wasn't smart enough to make it through nursing school and got a job working the vitamin counter at (that company I can't mention).
Basically I deprived my blood of real ingredients and replaced them with made from yack puke, treebark, and powdered bald eagle eye jelly. LOL

I guess I'm saying - Don't get all 773H bent for leather on some crazy health fad.
I missed out on a LOT of riding and doing what I really love - CUSTOM PAINT AND REPAIR.

tuchainz---
I'm in La Marque now. Hate it. Getting out ASAP.
I'm about 1.5 miles south on 2004 just off South 45.

The most amount of work is cleaning. If you bring very clean plastic and one color you're looking at about $275 at the most.

Price also includes sanding, priming, crack & scratch repair, clear coating. I don't paint over old paint or decals. It all comes off until it's smooth and clean.

If you bring a bike with 1/2 inch of road grime packed in the plastic - - You'll need to sacrifice your first born to me......
LOL

, I may have to hit you up for some paint (and plastic repair). I probably have a bit more plastic to be painted than a standard sport bike though.

Know that feeling. Had partial kidney failure few years back and got anemic. Couldn't take 5 steps without being winded. I can normally go to the wall for 3-4 days without sleep/drugs so it was a real shock to be so limited. That SUCKS!

Yer tellin me!! I've always been in great shape and very agile and athletic. I'm 53, but go down to the Y and play b-ball with the 30 somethings. So many of them are suckin wind after 2 - 3 games they actually lay on the floor and can't go anymore.

I have a whole bag full of street and track bikes and couldn't ride any of them. All the things I used to do including the paint and airbrushing (plug) went bye bye for more than a year. I'm so glad I feel normal !!

Well, if any of you are serious, give me a shout.
