Press pause
Saturday, December 07, 2019     

My mother died on November 19th. When I got home the house was decorated for Christmas, which it hadn’t been when I left. It was jarring, and I felt, insensitive. The world just keeps spinning. The days keep changing. It all feels so rushed. If ... Read more
Gee, ya think?

The neurologist convinced me to go to an ENT about my snoring. So we went today. I guess I should have known it was not going to be a good day after my cat peed in my pants in the bathroom. It was a warning that things were not going to go well ... Read more
Christmas is over.

Today Ted took the tree down. I thought he would donate it because half of the lights stopped working after Rocket Tucker Pepper Phd. played with them. Christmas this year was a real treat. They took us all to Texas for over a week. Mom even mad... Read more
Another kidney stone.
Tuesday, November 07, 2017     

The good news is that I've lost 7 pounds. The bad news is that I haven't been able to eat very well. I don't think I should be passing so many kidney stones. One came out on Halloween, but I'm still passing another one. Plus it ruined Halloween ... Read more

I had some grapefruit juice with about half water, and it was good. Most things taste fine with water added. I just don't remember which med says I shouldn't have grapefruit juice with it. Last night I ate some coleslaw leftover from Violet's bi... Read more
Kidney stone.
Tuesday, September 19, 2017     

This one was a struvite, I think, because it looked like a black grain of rice. It only really hurt in the beginning, a couple of weeks ago, but I've been so nauseous since then. I'm so glad that it's finally out. Because it didn't hurt in the s... Read more

Want to die. People treat me like crap. Hate people. Blood pressure is too high. Wish it would go ahead and kill me.... Read more
Another Episode
Wednesday, September 21, 2016     

Last week I expended a lot of energy cleaning the house for a party. One day I was in a really bad mood, with past memories bothering me a lot. I got into a stupid argument and it destroyed me emotionally. It was ridiculous, but it still left me... Read more
Just keep swimming.

The highest weight that I've ever been was 299 pounds. Currently I am at 244 pounds, though I was recently even lower. I started seeing the doctor and some of the medicines she gave me made me retain water, nearly 20 pounds. That's been slowly g... Read more
Current Weight
Friday, February 24, 2012     

Since the end of October 2010 I have lost 38 pounds, going from 289 lbs. down to 251 today. Most of the loss was due to an intestinal disorder and a few bouts of stomach flu. But also Jess and I have been eating out less, which means I am cooki... Read more
Second update.
Monday, December 26, 2011     

I've lost 2 more pounds, though of course I have weight fluctuations of up to 10 pounds each month. I've lost a size, and am able to wear pants in size 20W that I bought for Mom, but were too big for her. For Christmas I got myself some shirts o... Read more
First update.
Friday, July 15, 2011     

As of this morning I have lost a total of 34 pounds since the end of October. Much of it was due to sicknesses, but I have been making a modest effort. Nobody has really noticed, but I can feel it in certain places on my body, like around my wai... Read more
