To Sleep, To Dream
Monday, May 02, 2016      2 comments

I'm a chronic insomniac. It's hard-wired into my brain. I've had trouble with sleep since I was a little kid. I remember hating nap time because I had to lay there, bored, for what felt like hours. Other kids slept, I could see that. But, not me... Read more

I'm recovering from a root canal procedure last Friday. Crunchy, hard stuff is still a challenge but it's definitely easier to eat overall. I laid in some fiber rich foods and will try to fit them in as I can. I can certainly eat beans and cooke... Read more

Friday, April 17, 2015      2 comments

It's been a long few weeks, culminating in an unexpected injury to my rib cage. It feels like a pulled muscle, and it's painful enough to put a serious crimp in my daily activities. I finally broke down and called a doctor to request physical th... Read more

Half Full
Sunday, September 28, 2014      2 comments

My glass is ( almost) always half full. On occasion I'll lose the forest for the trees, but I tend to wander back to the right track. I've learned not to beat myself up too badly. That helps.... Read more

Pain in the Neck
Thursday, August 07, 2014      1 comments

At my age, I get aches and pains. This is made worse by computer work, which requires long periods of sitting and extensive use of my hands. I often end up going to bed and not being able to sleep on my back because I'm so sore. I'm trying ... Read more

Hacking My Way Through Today
Monday, February 24, 2014      3 comments

That's hacking as in coughing, not doing something to computers. I seem to have the cold that's felling Boston. On the bright side, my coughs are "productive," so at least my body's moving towards health even if it's inconvenient for me. I ... Read more
Me? Exercise?
Wednesday, January 22, 2014      3 comments

I'm a disaster waiting to happen in a gym. I'll start with a lot of enthusiasm and commitment, only to be driven out of the gym and the mindset by one set of physical problems or another: achilles tendinitis, knee problems and more. So, I ... Read more
