A “Just Thinking Out Loud” Post -Who Wins?

I was nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award. The dictionary defines Nominate as 3. To propose for an honor, award, or the like. One person nominates 15 people and then they in turn each nominate 15 other people and so on. Do that a few times and there are over 50,000 people nominated for this…

How Do You Feel About Your PCP?

I recently read a blog post about a person’s experience with their primary car physician, and it was something out of a horror story. If you are an early follower of my blog, then you know that I think my PCP stepped right out of the pages of “Doctor Perfect”. But I was wondering just…

Slipping Back Into Old Habits

I am slowly slipping back in to my bad habits and I know I am going to pay the price down the road, so I have to stop. I am aware of my vice of staying up late and then getting up at my normal time only to go through the majority of the day…

Just A Little Off The Subject

Imagine yourself in a room with some of your closest friends and acquaintances and it is your birthday. They each come up to you and wish you Happy Birthday one by one. Do you tell them each thank you as they greet you or do you stand there and say nothing? Then when everybody in…

A Frappé Latté Slappé In The Face

Ever since I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in 2006, I have been constantly on prednisone at various doses, and in that time I have put on thirty pounds. I have not really tried to lose the weight until now. I joined Weight Watchers on line and I am counting points. I downloaded their app for…

Feeling Good!

I don’t know if it is my vacation in Arizona or just good vibes, but I am feeling better than I have in a long time. I am not constantly tired, or have difficulty breathing. I seem to be doing fine without my oxygen while walking. Life is really good right now and I am…

I’m Going To Finish This Time

In 2007, I entered massage school, not to do as a new career, but t was something that I was intrigued with and wanted to learn. I think of it as a hobby. I was really getting into it, and in my second term I had my TIA and everything hit the fan after that….

Letting Go Of My Old Self

One thing about having a chronic condition, and in my case, more than one, is that you need to accept that your life, in one way or another, will change forever. I remember the day before I had my defibrillator implanted I knew that there would be so much I would never be able to…

Is There Such A Thing As Being Too Positive?

Looking at the statistics on my blog, and a few emails I received, it seems the posts with the highest number of hits are those few ones where I am not positive. What exactly are people looking for? Are people look for stories and posts of despair that prove their life is not as bad?…

Celebrating 50

It has been a while since my last post and that’s because I was and still am, celebrating life. My life in particular. I turned 50 last week and rather than spend money on a big party for my friends and family, we (my beautiful wife and I), took that money and went away alone…
