Thu, 21 Feb 2013 05:52:38 EST 4 days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4393439 4 days in a row and I am going strong :-) I can do it and will do it :-) Fri, 29 Jul 2011 07:24:44 EST Seems like an old TV show http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4387299 You know how it is: you turn on the TV and there it is, the same episode of a TV show that you've already seen again and again and ..... <BR> I think you get the idea :-( <BR> That's me on Spark over the last year and a half. <BR> It means something else though; it means I am not constant in my care for myself. <BR> It's all those little things that I know I should do but don't: floss and brush my teeth several times a day, weigh myself frequently, eat well, log in what I eat, keep an accou... Tue, 26 Jul 2011 12:03:51 EST Going to the bank http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4100441 Hard to get going today ... not on the ball at all :-( <BR> I've missed three trains but I'm not going to miss the next one. <BR> I can do it. <BR> Seems like easy things to do at times are hard to do: get up, showered, dressed, eat, get to a train, go to the bank, cash a check and deal with my problems. <BR> That's it isn't it? The problem is dealing with my problems. Well I am still here, down, but not out :-) <BR> I can do it. Others can see what I've been able to accomplish, I sure can... Fri, 18 Mar 2011 09:21:51 EST Going skiing, lost a job, found a partner ... all in all not so bad :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2606299 A litle update: <BR> The company I started working for letme go. Ok. I wasn't so convinced by them and all but I thought it would go forwrd all the same for 6 month contract. With having worked for them as a lifeguard during the summer, then being brought into the company as a sales and marketing guy (in my "previous life" I was a business consultant and rep) and helping them with increasing their brand image and name recognition through their parteciption in a big local event for a few week... Thu, 3 Dec 2009 03:01:15 EST Zoloft to zero mg from 100 mg - Woo Hoo! Thanks All!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2564747 Just an update for y'all: <BR> Well I'm only on Lazropram now (and that's from 1-2 mg depending upon the stress of my day). Zoloft from 100 mg to 50 mg and now to 0 mg. <BR> Over the last few days, I've have still suffered from great muscle tension, tension headaches and a that feeling of not being able to clear my ears from the pressure (like some kind of "head cold") ... <BR> I made the decision when I seemed to be going well after overcoming the first period of reducing Zoloft. I was wi... Mon, 16 Nov 2009 05:26:42 EST TIME TO BLOG http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2542487 And time to say: Woo Hoo! <BR> With that all out of the way, I wanted to share that I have cut down my Zoloft dosage from 100 mg to 50 mg ... <BR> Even that small change had me go through symptoms for 5 days that left me trying to clear my ears all the time (as if I was suffering from a change in pressure or altitude - you know know like when a plane starts its descent to land? Hope ya'll get the idea :S) ... in any case, I'm still feeling ok and all. <BR> I'm still taking Lazropram as my PD... Sat, 7 Nov 2009 17:25:49 EST
