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

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
