There were several things I needed to do yesterday and it was rather challenging. The difficulty is that, for me at least, trying to do anything is rather difficult because it because I don't have much energy and even moving seems to take effort. I know that there are some who utilize the "fight" response … Continue reading Healing Wounds Which No One Sees
I must admit I'm struggling a bit tonight. I've stumbled across that Minotaur and we're slugging it out pretty fiercely. But I refuse to yield my optimism or my determination. As I'm sitting here, wrestling with that primeval beast within myself, a song suddenly came to mind and I've been playing it over and over … Continue reading My Evening With “Satchmo”…And A Wonderful World
Just got back from my chiropractors appointment. Yea, I may be experiencing the onset of arthritis. This, of itself, is a bit of a bummer. But if it's true, the more ominous thing is that means my autoimmune system is starting to attack the rest of my body again. The consequences of that are anyone's … Continue reading “I Am” Is Quite Enough!
I'm going to see my chiropractor this morning, so I'm going to mention the pain I've been experiencing in my knuckles.

It's been a challenge today since I wasn't able to get a decent nights sleep last night. This situation is certainly better than it was a few years ago, but the lack of sleep really effects me. I was able to get a way with it when I was younger, but those days are long … Continue reading Fatigue, Fatherhood…And The 100 Acre Wood

These endless nights are followed by days of exhaustion and mental fogginess. The inability to sleep, further impacts my health because it's at night that healing and (mental / emotional) … Continue reading Insomnia Of Fear
I haven't written anything for a week or so because of the tech meeting I hosted last week. For a first time meeting, I suppose it went as well enough. One person walked out and a number of the others seemed rather disappointed about what we did. I did what I could to engage everyone … Continue reading Striving To Find Peace Within, So That I Can Reach Out
I took a walk this morning after I dropped my son off at school. Dropping my son off at school was okay. Getting myself to take a walk and now sitting down to make a blog entry is much more difficult. Apparently, one of the things that a thyroid condition (Hypothyroid / Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) entails … Continue reading Determination Vs Motivation
I'm experiencing a great deal of fear and anxiety about the meeting of the tech group I set up this Thursday. Yet I still feel determined to see it through.
