My New Primary Doctor

My New Primary Doctor

Let's start with the big news: I have a new primary doctor. More importantly, I like her. Which, if you've been reading here a while, you know isn't an insignificant thing. I was a little daunted thinking about this task just after we moved here, but I put what I've...

Happy Thursday!

My left big toe is infected, somehow. In a normal body, it would be no big deal. But this body I have must make a show of everything. So it hurts to walk, and I keep thinking about the maskholes of...

Vesitbular Neuritis and Stuff

I am having a day. Actually, a couple of days. I've been wanting to say I feel like my nerves are inflamed for a while now, but it sounded a little ridiculous to me. So I finally Googled whether or not nerves can be inflamed, and I'll be damned if I didn't just...

CZT Training Day 4

I'm a CZT (certified Zentangle teacher) now! The past four days were harder than four years of college in perceived effort. I'm not complaining---just the opposite. I'm pretty damn proud of myself. Saturday (Day 3) was the hardest day. The second full day of...
