My Life on the Edge

Being a stuntman and an actor in Hollywood both demanding jobs. They are not for the faint of heart. Only durable people can last in these professions. They take a toll on my body, but I would never trade them for the world. My father was a stuntman for many years. He filled in for many actors during his prime. I wanted to follow in his footsteps. A couple of weeks ago, I had an accident on the set of my own movie. I was in so much pain. I needed prp treatment in Westchester County, NY. I needed the best to heal my injury.

I fell in love with stunt work and acting at a very young age. My father started the tradition. He used to take take me to the movie sets where he worked. I got to meet sll the crew and cast. They were so professional and dedicated. It was exciting and scary seeing my jumping out of windows and being set on fire. He acting was so convincing that I thought it was real at times. I knew then that my future profession would be an actor and stuntman.

In my career I always wanted to do my own stunts. For this reason, I decided to direct, write, and produce my own movies. Sometimes, actors are not allowed to perform stunts due to safety issues. I also did not want to be in the background my whole career. On the set of my new movie, I was doing a window stunt. I was supposed to jump out of a window and land safely on a mat below. I missed and hit the ground. Luckily, my doctor told me I did not break any bones, but I hurt me legs.

The doctor gave me prp treatment. I am starting to see some results.


Trying Something New for Pain Relief That Does Not Involve Pain Pills

The pain was not being managed with NSAIDs or narcotic painkillers. I needed to get back to working without the pain, so I decided to ask my doctor if trying a place that does PRP therapy in Westchester County NY would be okay. I was not sure it was going to work or not. However, when you hurt like I hurt, you want it to quit. I can see why people get hooked on narcotic painkillers. You need more and more of them to keep you functioning enough to get through the day. I had a schedule I would follow for making sure I had medication in me for work and for any sort of family recreation. I avoided all other time with people and just wallowed in pain.

The PRP therapy is platelet-rich plasma. They take my own blood and spin it down in a centrifuge. Then they put the plasma with the platelets in a syringe and inject them at the injury site. Continue reading


I Have Been Looking at the News

It is not very hard to find Trump news on the TV, although it is rather obvious that very little of it pleases the man himself. I suppose that he must expend a great deal of his time sitting in front of the television watching the news about himself. Personally I always thought that the job would require a lot of effort and focus, at least it seems like it would if you were interested in doing the thing the way that it should be. However it is true that I have a lot of ideas that are different than this person’s ideas. In fact I have some friends that would not even call him by his name. They will call the man 45 and not with any real happiness at all. I simply wonder how he could have ever expected to be successful at the job, but it reminds me of something a police officer once told me. He pointed out that the prisons were full of people who thought that they were a lot smarter than they actually were. Continue reading
