I was sitting at the kitchen table, right in front of my warm oven, writing in my notebook, when I realized that it was after 4pm, and that the sun would be setting within the hour, then nightfal...


I slept in this morning. Once up, I went through my routine, put much needed air in my airbed and am now washing and drying my bedding. Later on, I’ll go outside for a smoke. I think that later o...


I received a “friend request” on Face Book. I did not know this person. I looked at their profile, and thought that I would accept the request. All the while, I was thinking that this “person” co...


I have been reading about stress and how avoidance is only a short term and temporary solution to a problem. For myself, avoidance is taking away what could have been a very painful situation, i....

I feel as if my cortisol level has dropped by about 75%. That is a good thing. It means that I am slowly “de-fusing”, if you will. Saturdays.....weekends are a good time to “de-fuse” and “un-plug...


I am in the process of catching up on laundry. Bear carried my laundry detergent and duffle bag of laundry. God bless him. My R. knee has been giving me problems. I can just “feel” that my cortis...


To be honest, and not to fool myself, I am still seething over the way the office lady berated me for calling the maintenance kiosk, where in reality, my having no water in my kitchen faucet shou...


This morning, I honestly did not think that I would be able to start my morning routine. Somehow....somehow I managed to make it through. After my shower, I got dressed and am wearing my knee bra...


Yesterday, I went grocery shopping. Today I went to the warehouse grocery store at the mission. Bear seems to think that is what has caused an incredible flare-up of arthritis in the front and ba...


What goes around comes around. Remember my entry in which I discussed phoning the maintenance kiosk at 4 am to let them know that I had no water coming out of my kitchen faucet, and that I was be...
