OMG!  Another year gone by.  Just wanted to say hello... Life is ok.  Working as a nursing supervisor at this moment for a home health company.  Every weekend and on call every weekend.  Yes I know, Im nuts..
 
Anyway;
 
I had my first PAP smear.  YUP for us Guys..  and it was borderline in the results.. so what I had to do next was a Biopsy to rule out any rectal problemos..   The results are IN:   NEGATIVO :)    YAY...    So guys.. go get ur butt swabbed.  Its so simply, easier than the ole rectal thermometers...
 
Oh..and Im done with IPN.. I have posted all my letters.  Why?  Because if you google my name those mug shots are forever.. So why not offset them with the goodness of sobriety.
 
Love you all :)
 
Chris

First of all.. I have to wish my baby sister a happy birthday!  Love you!

As you can see I dont really update this page that often anymore.  I guess since most the world uses facebook these days, including myself, I tend to be there more than here.  

SInce my last update I went from working as a night shift nurse in a nursing home, promoted to a unit manager, and then again to the Director of nursing.   In a matter of 5 years I went from homeless behind a dumpster high on cocaine, to the Director of Nursing.  That's what sobriety can do for a person.  If it worked for me, it can work for ANYBODY!

I recently resigned that position as there was a very toxic conflict between management styles of a new administrator and myself.  I tried and tried but unfortunately the stress started to play on my physical being including a visit to the ER overnight for chest pain and HTN.  So?  I resigned with notice.  It's all good.  I have secured a new job which starts soon.  Nothing like a  new challenge.

I met an amazing woman the other day who lost her 19 year old daughter last year.  She told me about a memorial web page that they started for all those who have lost a love one.  It is an amazing site and I invite you to check it out at KAN-DO.COM  :)   

My facebook is http://facebook.com/verobeachchris or verobeachchris@facebook.com if you want to message me there.

I wish you all the best of love, life, serenity, and peace.  

See you again soon!

Love Christopher

DECEMBER 2010

Oh my God it's cold outside!  Thats right it was in the 20's last night here in sunny Vero Beach Florida.  That's just way too cold for Florida.  Thank God for Heat!

So what's new with you?  Thanks for stopping bye again and checking in.  All is going well.  Im still working as a nurse in Fort Pierce.  Hoping the body doesn't fall apart with my history.  So far so good.  Trying to get back into that work force full time again and finally get off of this government crapola.  It's scarey, being caught between a rock and a hard place, but more will be revealed.  

AND ??? VERO HAS ANOTHER GAY NIGHT!!

Remember cosmics?  Well now we have the Gay Party at Dukes SurfClub!  So far it's starting to pick up!  Last week yours truly had to jump in as "guest" DJ for Kelli Randell as we had some "technical difficulties" with the original and fill in DJ's!  It went well!

So the health is good, the love is good!  I'm single again, living alone in my own little casita by the dump!   

If your single and have half a brain and a sense of humor, hit me up!  Maybe we can do sushi!

Hugs to ya!
Christopher

OCTOBER 20TH, 2010

The Sand of the hour class just a keep on flowing don't they?  Well since the summer a lot of things have gone by.  The guy from Lake Worth I was dating turned out to be a really big mess and had a very bad violent tempter.  My gut instincts were right, and I should have never let it get as far as it did, but hey!  Live and Learn!  Since I let that go, with the help of some pretty amazing people, Life has begun again for me.  I have managed to save my house, so there is no foreclosure going to happen.  Ironically it was put through a month before the government stopped all foreclosures! LOL  But hey, Im doing the right thing.

I have since been to las vegas.  My God if thats not adult Disney World I don't know what is.  I have maintained my sobriety, only through the grace of a power greater than myself; in addition my health is great!  Even better as today is over 30 days since I quit smoking cigarettes.  The only draw back is that I've gained 10 pounds.. UGH!  But hey, I forgot what oxygen smelled like!

So all in all... ole gay chris is doing just fine!  I lost my Aunt last month from Cancer!  I loved her very much and I wish my cousins strength and love!

Keep in touch!  You can find me on http://facebook.com/gaychris/  or on facetime on my IPHONE 4.  The phone number is at the top of the page!

Love you all... and I'll try to update again sooner!

JUNE 2010

Holy Cow!  I can't believe its been almost a year since I've updated my site.  Well it's been a strange year for sure. 

The biggest thing over the last year was my fight for reinstatement of my Nursing License from the Florida Boards.  Seems the state made some new changes and the fact that I am now a convicted felon, I was not going to be able to renew my license.  Well, that changed relatively quick, as the state grandfathered all those who's convictions were before July 2009...

The next obstacle was to get back to working at the nursing home, which was my first job in nursing in years.  Seems that convicted professionals in Florida need to get a letter of exemption from the state in order to prove themselves safe to practice around the elderly.  So it was a long drawn out road which lead me to actually meet and present myself and my recovery to the Board of Nursing.  It was an emotional day sitting in front of the board as if I was in a congressional hearing; telling my story of cancer, addiction, loss, and proven recovery from drug addiction.  I was blessed to have my mother and father right there at my side.  I love them so much!  We got the answer right there; The board granted me a letter of exemption.  Thank you God!~

Also this year I and my family have been on the mend to dealing with Michael's suicide.  The first few months, being in survivor mode, it really didn't hit me as it did some of my other family.  That of course changed around the holidays and into the beginning of 2010.  Flash backs of the event and those days before and after riddled my mind and conscience.  I stayed close to recovery and my family and today it's a bit more tolerable, but it will never go away I know.  This July will be a year, and Mikey I miss you more now than ever.  I drive his truck right now, and celebrated his memory by having that 91 Ford Explorer painted.  My last car was Pricilla, I've named Mike's truck Presley!  Keep a running Presley, keep on truckin.

My roommates are all gone and for the first time in years Im living alone.  I've forgotten how much it can be loved.  I've also forgotten how much it can suck.  For now I'm ok as we are trying to save the house from foreclosure.  I know that God will put me in the right direction; I am doing the footwork though.

My health is amazingly great!  My frame of thought grand!  And today I feel that I am a much better individual than ever before.  I celebrated 2 1/2 sobriety this June, and by living a day at a time, I know that more will come.

So, Thank you for reading!  Love all those who keep up with my updates.

Feel free to add me to your facebook at http://facebook.com/gaychris  Yup!  Thats me!

Big hugs to you all!

Love 
Christopher

JULY 2009

SOMETIMES LIFE REALLY HURTS!


I haven't updated my site since January, for that I apologize mostly to myself.  This has been a very interesting year so far.  Sobriety has been a such a gift in my life.  It has taught me how to handle life on life's terms.  A phrase one hears often in recovery, I finally understand it's true meaning.  Why?

Well on July 14 of this year, I got a phone call I will never forget as long as I live.  It was my sister Patty calling me to tell me that my brother Michael was found dead in his apartment.  The powerlessness and horror in her voice echoes in my head.  

I immediately jumped into my car and in excess of 100 mph, I drove with the hope that I might be able to help to save my brother's life.  In a matter of minutes, as I arrived, I realized that I would not get that chance.  My brother was gone.

I have only experienced death this close to me when my young boyfriend William died in 2002.  He drowned only weeks before we were planning on exchanging vows.  I was devastated.  I was in hopes that I would not have to experience such devastation for a long time.  Unfortunately that was not the case.  

My brother Mike was an amazing person.  He loved to dive, fish, and had a love for nature.  He touched so many lives in so many different ways.  He influenced many and taught many more how to appreciate the ocean, the coral reefs, and the love of nature's pets like snakes, lizards, sea turtles, parrots, and even some bugs.

I feel at times so helpless with this loss.  My career was for many years in Psychiatric Medicine.  It breaks my heart that I could not help my brother pull out of his darkness.   It's really pains me to remember all the lives I have been able to help and sometimes save, and I could not save my own baby brother.  

I hurt.  I hurt alot, as does my family.  My sister's and parents alike.  The pain is overwhelming.  I know that my brother is at peace.  I know that his spirit lingers in a way as to help us move through this transition.  I understand all of those things, but it does not remove that knot in my stomach.

My car broke down today.  As I sat for 2 hours waiting for the car to be repaired, I broke down hysterically, alone, for the very first time since his death.  It helped to release something within myself.  It began to untie that knot.

I love you Michael.  You know that to be true.  We miss you as our family member.  We miss you as son, brother, nephew, cousin, and uncle.  Your memorial service filled St. Helen's church.  An amazing turn out.  I am sure you were amazed and shocked by the number of people that you brought smile, laughter, and love.  

Your memory lives on little brother.

From the words of Ho Oponopono:

Im Sorry
Please forgive me
I love you, 
and thank you!


Love
Chris

January 7, 2009
 
An Amazing thing happened early this morning, I had my one year birthday in SOBRIETY!  I never thought in my life I could say that I was proud of myself and really feel it inside.  Sobriety is an amazing thing.  It's more than just not drinking or doing hard core drugs; it's what has happened inside of me!  I never knew how little I felt or thought of myself.   I was an egomaniac with an inferiority complex.  A scared, frightened person who on the outside acted like he was the shit.
 
Well its different now.  I am a more humble, spiritually connected, loving, caring person who can actually say that he has feelings of joy and self love.  The gifts that sobriety has brought me is amazing. 
 
I have gone from being homeless in Fort Lauderdale, walking in dirty clothes for days, with blisters on my feet the size of silver dollars, and not a dime to eat; to a happy person who has gained not only the trust and respect back from many, but more importantly I have found answers to questions about myself which had been buried for many years.
 
I have so many to thank for this part of my journey.  I have recovered from Stage IV non hodkins lymphoma, debilitating health, the grief and loss of a boyfriend who drowned, a suicide attempt, and the guilt and shame of some pretty destructive behaviors.  I owe my family, my life long friendships, a great healthcare team, my new fellowship, and the 12 steps of Recovery for all the gifts I have recieved so far.
 
I hope one day that I can help give to all those and more who have helped me.
 
If you know a person who needs help with addiction.  Please contact me at thesoberrainbow@aol.com  or call me at the number on my web page. 
 
Love, Faith, and Miracles!
 
Christopher
 
I hope one day I can help someone as many have helped me.

I am sober now going on almost 7 months.  This time It's a keeper.  I had voluntarily enrolled in a wonderful I.O.P  (intensive outpatient therapy) to make sure that I continue my inner journey in sobriety.

Health wise.. all is FABU.  No more Cancer or Non Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Feel free to contact me if you need some support if you or a loved one is going through something of that nature.

I am also now a Prayer Chaplain at the Unity Church in Vero Beach.  The studdies included 40 hours of intense training.  We ended our last class at Unity on the Bay in Miami.   If you are looking for a spiritual church.  Check out the churches web page, http://unityofvero.com

My book, It only Takes One is now completed and fully edited.  My journey for the publication of that book continues.  A personal thanks with deep love I send to my friend Cynthia Sommer-Manella for the time she took to read and fully edit my project.  I love you Cynthia!  If you would like to read please email me at gaychris@gaychris.com  as I would be more than happy to send u a copy.  So thats the news for now.
