Of Wednesday... in And So It Goes....

Friday, the dentist pulled out a tooth that was “dead”. The discomfort was minimal, because they did a good job of anesthetizing my mouth. The bleeding, post-procedure, was also minimal. ...


Today I started my holiday baking. I baked German Cookies. One of the ingredients in the recipe is two tablespoons of sour milk. I did not have any buttermilk, on hand so I googled on my computer...

I was practically up all night, last night. The RLS was very bad. I tried taking a warm shower. That did not help. Sunday night, I got up and made pasta salad. Moving about in the kitchen reliev...


Well, this past week I was able to keep all of my appointments, aside from the appointment with my therapist, as I was having severe pain and had to cancel it. I made it to recertification. I saw...

Sunday Afternoon... in And So It Goes....

I think that I am very withdrawn, on this new medication. It took everything that I had to leave my apartment, to go outside for a smoke. I was feeling as if I did not want to run into anyone, es...
