Monday, September 14, 2015      15 comments

Well Spark Friends, this past weekend sucked in a very big way. I was so very, very sore. If I had a cane in the house, I would have used it to help me walk. I can't even describe the pain I felt. Most of it was from muscle spasms, but there was... Read more

First Day
Saturday, September 12, 2015      13 comments

It took 90 minutes to get to my appointment yesterday. Traffic accident. 40 minutes to drive just over one mile. My head exploded about a hundred times. I called the gym and let them know I would be late by 20 minutes. Andrew was cool about it. ... Read more

The morning routine went well. I gave myself lots of time to get there. Traffic is actually heavier at 6 in the morning heading toward Boston than at 7:30 or 8. Now I know to leave an hour to get there. I was early but expected to be there a hal... Read more

Stick a Fork in Me
Sunday, September 06, 2015      15 comments

Please God, let this be it. 18 months of intermittent, acute back and hip pain. I yearn for the days of the chronic, low-level pain that I could ignore. Stick a fork in me, I'm done. I'm not going to bore anyone with the ins and outs of all... Read more

I did OK at work today despite the 2 hour interlude last night. I fell back asleep at 4:30. Just before dozing off, I re-set my alarm from 5:30 to 6:00. It was rough waking up, but I had Rotary at 7:30 and it is at least a 45 minute drive. ... Read more

Insomnia. I have been awake for an hour. I have an early day today. Rotary meeting at 7:30, which means I leave the house at 6:30. At least I don't feel tired right now. But I was restless and disturbing The Hubster, so I am on the sofa for now.... Read more
