Last week was a hard week. And this coming week promises to be even harder. Tough things to face are impending, heavy emotional hitters about which I've already spent three sleepless nights and invested many tears into. I noticed that, as... Read more

Last week my doctor took me off of one of my medicines and replaced it with another--something I had begged them to do many times because that medicine is well known to cause people to gain large amounts of weight...and I'd put on about fifty po... Read more

I confess for the past two or three days, I've sort of lost my enthusiasm for SP...Tracking seems like a real pain in the rear...etc etc. Maybe we've all been there; thought that. I would be curious to know how people have dealt with that issu... Read more

well, February is on it's way out...and March is going to ease in like a lamb or roar in like a lion. I hope it roars as it enters....then it can ease on out gently. And coming in roaring almost gives the image of "taking the month by storm" w... Read more

Last night, sleep did not come easily. For some reason I was plagued with tough questions about my existence and feeling quite hopeless about things. I do not normally allow myself to flounder like that, but last night I was sucked into a vor... Read more

I have been on the brink; on the precipice between life and death, teetering precariously for a few days....and now have seemed to settle back onto the shores of life. So now, I have to brush myself off and reassess...to maintain the lessons of... Read more

Monday, February 08, 2010      4 comments

I have determined that what is going on is that all of the IV steroids they've been pumping into me, have finally had "that" effect that I knew was coming: ravenous appetite. Up until now I was relatively safe; not feeling well enough to really... Read more
