Hi, I'm GoryBlizzard.
I made my account here on November 21, 2003 at the age of 13 and haven't really left. Many people you will see identifying themselves as "old" are actually newer than me. That's how jaw-droppingly old I am.
I used to mod the older chat, you used to be able to see me frequently on PalTalk (although I wouldn't say I felt close to anyone), developed a stronger camaraderie with some other people in the old Stickam chat, hosted a few NYC NG meets, one co-hosted with @Luis in 2012, and who knows, I wouldn't rule out a future meet via Zoom later this year, almost or over 10 1/2 years since my real life one.
People a long time ago have always associated me with my love of shit, particularly from attractive females. There are a few people here that will see the word "shit" in a thread title or original post and then tag me because they instantly think of me. I'm used to it. Shit has played a big role in my sex life and scat and efro porn really gets me going when my girlfriend is not around. She is into shit too; guy shit. That's why we're so perfect for each other. I've loved shit since since I was 3 years old.
I also have epilepsy and take medication for it. At the time of this post, 3 different meds. I saw a neurosurgeon on December 10, 2019 to have a VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulator) installed in my chest wall. It's basically a pacemaker for the brain and works to stop or suppress seizures by way of my left vagus nerve. It also comes with a magnet that can be swiped over it to enhance its electrical output whenever I feel like the use of it is justified. The regular, non-magnetic setting is at 0.75 mA for me and can be manipulated every time I visit my neurologist. Every paper check I have says "Cure Epilepsy" on it and this is an area where I am constantly trying to stay on top of, as far as new research goes.
One particularly bad seizure I had on February 28, 2015 resulted in dislocating my right shoulder and I've needed surgery ever since then. But life happened and so did delay after delay, but it looks like that it is likely to happen on the 24th in just 9 days. I'll post updates in this thread I made back in 2010 or possibly make a new one. The plan is to have an open Latarjet procedure done with two orthopedic surgeons working collaboratively. I'm waiting for the surgical coordinator to tell me when the fresh osteochondral allograft has arrived and if my primary care physician has signed off on my most recent blood work done yesterday.
My favorite music genre is metal. I've been to a fuck ton of shows and met some of the finest musicians. Been part of Metal Hell since January 12, 2005. My BBS sig is so old that I've had it since October 2, 2004, only changing it to fit each redesign ever since then. I encourage more metal lovers here to be more active in that thread and possibly make their own to upload to the Audio Portal.
