180 Degree Shift
Wow. I met with my doctor yesterday, and am now in a 180 degree shift on everything.
She is strongly suggesting that I take 3-6 months off work, to be able to focus on getting myself back together, addressing those things I've shoved aside ... Read more

Lots of catching up to do with my Triple Challenge. Here we go with the Healthy Habits Reset Challenge.
Day 4 – Friday
So Day 4 was about finding a buddy. I have a little difficulty with consistently supporting my buddies in the pas... Read more
Memory is hunger
“There are so many sorts of hunger…. Memory is hunger.”
– Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
This quote speaks so much to me, because my hunger is based on the memory of what I miss... being active, spontaneous, sexy, alive! Reach... Read more
Triple Challenge - Day 3 (Thursday)
Day three, so far, so good!
The Healthy Habits Reset is all about getting focus and setting a goal. You may remember that ultimately I want to be happier, which I guess is code for getting out of my head so much and being less stressed. So... Read more
Triple Challenge - Day 2
Second day of my triple challenge. So far, so good.
The Healthy Habits Reset asks that I commit to doing just one thing each day toward reaching my goal. With a goal of being happier and worrying less, one thing I will do for at least 10 mi... Read more
Triple Challenge - Day 1
So September 1st I joined three challenges (well, two SP challenges, and one personal one).

My Wellness Vision Statement
So, starting fresh means revisiting my vision for this ongoing wellness project I’ve undertaken. SparkPeople calls it a “Weight Loss Vision Statement”, but I prefer to focus on wellness rather than just weight loss (which is what SP says ... Read more
Striving to see clearly
The past couple of days have been spent in trying to get practical with things so that they work for the way both DH and I work. I'm all about planning and being organized (and in my head), and he's all about being spontaneous and is very visual... Read more
Waking up to reality
I'm just now beginning to realize the cost of cancer for me and my family, how far down the slope I've gone and how far up I have to go to get back to some semblance of living.
So far, I've more than doubled my weight and can't walk because... Read more
This is my year
For the first time in over 12 years, all of my doctors agree that I am cancer free. So I'm getting on with the business of living, not just surviving.
We took our first vacation overseas this year, in Galicia, Spain. A lot of firsts for me ... Read more
Hi. I’m SeaWave, and I have chronic health issues.
For the past twelve years, I’ve been focused on identifying what my health issues were, and dealing with them – diagnosing, surgeries, treatments, follow-up tests and monitoring. I have been on long-term disability three times during my care... Read more
Just back from hospital
They removed a cyst in my lymph nodes yesterday. Back of the neck is very swollen, but the worst was the after effects of the surgery. Migraine, ridiculously high blood pressure, various meds they gave me weren't working for either. They kept a ... Read more
Not such a good idea
So I thought looking back through my blogs would be a good way of finding my "lessons learned". Not a good idea at this point. What I found is that with the cancer treatments, I was on an up/down cycle, and there is really nothing I've been able... Read more
Going back to the beginning... way, way back!
I've been in this weird place these past few months, which I'm going to try to explain here. My apologies if it seems a bit "stream-of-consciousness" or unorganized, because I'm still trying to get my own head around it.
“We are what we r... Read more
Off the rails, frustration... finding my way back.
Ok, I've been way off the rails since November. It seems like the puzzle that is my life just shattered, and I haven't been able to find two pieces that go well together.
Losing Dad December 1, I realized, was losing one of my touchstones. ... Read more
