Spaz under pressure

This is not my phone, because I can’t take pictures now. It just looks like this. Some people exhibit grace under pressure. I’m not one of those people. When I am suddenly stressed or startled, it sets off a chain reaction of physical events that are never pretty. Like this morning, when I had an […]

Marble madness

I have this trackball mouse, it’s the least painful to use. And many, many times a day, I knock the mouse off my keyboard tray and the trackball falls out into the black hole that is under my desk. On a good day, it will hit on the right side of the computer wires and […]

Allergies

Today I went to the allergist at U of P’s hospital for allergy tests. Oddly enough, the only positive reaction I had was to ragweed — that, and the histamine shot that made a big red golf ball appear under my skin. I didn’t have a positive reaction to dogs, cats, tree pollen, or dust […]

Christmas list

I don’t really expect a response, but thought I’d ask, just in case: I’d love to have a full-size digital SLR camera.

Me and my c-pap

The medical supplier dropped off my c-pap machine yesterday, and last night was my first night using it away outside of a sleep lab. And I have to say, it didn’t suck. It took some getting used to, but when I woke up today, I didn’t have a headache and I felt — not incredible, […]

Allergies

After five hellish days of no antihistamines, I finally had my allergist appointment. Guess what? They didn’t have enough nurses in that day to do the allergy tests. He wants me to come back in a month. “I’m not doing that again,” I told the doctor. “You’re just going to have to test me with […]
