About the author

MoneySense is a book on personal finance and Defending Freedom of Contract is a book on Constitutional Law.
I have seen 9 neurologists over the past 13 years and my diagnosis has change 4 times. Currently my diagnosis is both cramp fasciculation syndrome (CFS) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) or multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN). A definitive diagnosis has been difficult to pin point because my symptoms and diagnostic testing results do not fit any one disorder. My symptoms are vast and include motor, sensory, and autonomic nerves.
My neurological condition forced me to evolve to cycling 7 years ago after other activities were deemed a safety concern (rock climbing) or too painful (running). I participated in my first race at age 50 and have since won over 70 races and been on the podium over 100 times despite significant muscle power impairment.

Update #7 - Final Edits Jan. 25, 2021

We are in the final stages of releasing the book. The cover is done. Grammar and formatting edits done. Text deleting, additions, and moving edits are done. We are just doing the final round of checks. Hopefully that will not be very long. 

You all have been acknowledged in the book and if you have a business, your website was also published. 

The publisher also granted me a few new contracts for books. The first is to do a children's book (fictional story based on my situation). It is a YA or young adult book for a children up to about 12 ish. This book is also ongoing and has started. 

I was also contracted to tell my story about my bike accident and recovery. I was surprised about this opportunity because I did not think my situation was that overly novel. I guess the publisher was impressed by my story when I went over it with him. I have started this project as well and have been documenting all the events up to this point and keeping a journal moving forward. 

As far as my recovery is concerned, the doctor who did my facial reconstruction said I no longer have any restrictions. Right now the shoulder is the most constrictive issue, but it is coming along a bit each day. Most everything else is back to normal - my weight and my training. My digestion has been off and I fear that may never be normal again due to that toxic megacolon I had. My face is still numb and they are hopeful this will get better. These are minor issues, I can live with them. Once the shoulder is good, I should be good as new. I knew I would never get back to 100%. My face is not perfect, the shoulder will always have some issues, my digestive system may be impaired, and my physiology to cycle may also be off a bit but life is good. I am happy and grateful for what I have. If went into the rehab expecting everything to work as it did before, I knew I would be disappointed. My goal is 100% recovery but I know anything above 95% would be also be fantastic. 

Again, thank you all for your support on this project and your concern for my health.
