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.

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
I try to read other blogs as much as I can. The thing is that I often get so engrossed online that the world just passes me by. This is why I didn't last on Facebook that long. I have people here in the house and a whole world outside my door. There are also … Continue reading Thanks For Keeping Me Company Tonight!
Well, it's 2:46 AM here in Philly and I'm wide awake. This is fairly common, but thankfully not as common as it used to be. Apparently, there's an issue with my adrenal glands which puts my wake / sleep cycle off kilter at times. While I do take some medication / supplementation to help regulate … Continue reading Night Owl
There are some nights when my physical illness prevents me from sleeping. This makes for very long nights, listening to the seconds slowly tick by. 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
NOTE: Rereading this, I know I sound more angry and bitter than I feel (if that makes sense). Venting helps and knowing your there helps me here! I'm going to have a nice evening watching "Groundhog Day" with my family tonight. I'm really looking forward to it. --- My symptoms have improved since my thyroid … Continue reading Just Another Day: Hashimoto’s, Complex Trauma…And Doctors
