Trying not to be adolescent

Sunday, August 26, 2012      1 comments

Adolescents are moody and get their feelings hurt easily. They crave attention. These are natural for that age. But not after maturity, and certainly not in seniority. But I find my feelings are hurt because I feel put down. So out of touc... Read more

Slapstick Workout

Monday, August 13, 2012      2 comments

Today, 43 days after starting SP, I did my first workout. I'm using one of Dr. K's workouts. It starts with an exercise he smoothly demonstrates: squat, thrust, legs apart and together (like a jumping jack on the floor in a leaning rest, or pu... Read more

New Med

Thursday, August 09, 2012      3 comments

I'm trying out the SP coaching choice. So far I don't really feel like I have a personal coach. The check-in page is automatic, sort of like going down the Spark Points page and doing things to get points. I don't feel as though anybody would... Read more

Rolling in the Deep

Thursday, August 02, 2012      4 comments

I heard this in a popular song. I thought it must be some song from the Pirates of the Caribbean or some spinoff, since I don't keep current with either films or music. I liked the sound, so I looked it up on utube. I was surprised to see so ... Read more

Not fit for human company

Monday, July 30, 2012      2 comments

Meds didn't arrive. I've been having nightmares and "strangemares". I suddenly cry for no reason. Dizziness is really annoying. It comes in sudden bursts and I have to hold onto things to keep from falling. And headaches! All this from miss... Read more

Managing

Saturday, July 28, 2012      1 comments

Came to an agreement with my relative by compromising. I can live with it. Came to a decision about two conflicting diet regimes by cancelling one. We'll see how it goes. Came to a decision about my plan for physical activities that will l... Read more

Three Awful Days

Friday, July 27, 2012      1 comments

The last three days have been terrible. Unhappy with my progress with a project, clash of views with a relative, gastrointestinal mega distress, cramps, nausea, diarrhea, wringing with sweat, sleeping too much to avoid feeling ill. Don't know ... Read more

Dislike vegetables, dislike cooking

Monday, July 23, 2012      3 comments

I've tried to learn to like vegetables most of my life. I like tomatoes, but they're fruit, aren't they? I like green peppers, legumes, corn and peas (full of sugar), and several other vegetables inclucing lettuce but only when covered with lo... Read more

Trying to change sleep

Monday, July 23, 2012      0 comments

I don't know why my body just likes to sleep in the day and resists the normal cycle. I really want to sleep at night because I need to be awake in the day to do some things I want to do that involve other people. If it weren't for that, I'd j... Read more

Personal Progress

Saturday, July 21, 2012      5 comments

I have managed to double the time I can walk without limping from last week's average. It's really pleasant. I walk late at night or early morning, when it is very quiet and nobody's around. I love the little breeze and the susseration of the... Read more

We may live long enough to live long enough

Friday, July 20, 2012      0 comments

Yeah, getting to 100 is hardly newsworthy anymore. As long as I'm alert and moving, I want to live. Things are changing all the time, and science is finding more answers. I happen to believe all truth, including scientific truth, comes from G... Read more

Jupiter and Venus

Thursday, July 19, 2012      2 comments

I could hardly believe it this morning when I looked up into the pre-dawn sky. Venus is so huge and bright, and Jupiter is as large and bright as Venus usually is. I had to just stare at them for awhile. I'll be lucky to see them together and... Read more

Plodding today

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      0 comments

I'm just doing it, plodding on, doing what I'm supposed to do to keep up my efforts. I'm just tired today. But not discouraged. I know I'm motivated, I just can't feel it. I know I'm enthusiastic down there somewhere.... Read more

Lazy is as lazy does

Monday, July 16, 2012      0 comments

Thanks for being kind, but we know when we're being lazy. I could get up, but I don't. I could bend over and pick up that paper, but I don't. It's kind of like a muscle you have to use or it starts atrophying. Like patience. If you don't ke... Read more

Not at all sleepy

Sunday, July 15, 2012      3 comments

It's one thirty in the morning. No use. If I'm not tired or sleepy, I'll just lie there. Worse, I'll just start with the PTSD junk. If I'm tired and sleepy, I can sleep almost anywhere, regardless of light or noise. Lucky that way. But now... Read more
