It's been an interesting week here at the Fortress of Solitude. Yesterday I had a video appt with the nurse practitioner about the bed spins and she explained that there are little crystals in the inner ear (So yes, dad, I do have rocks in my head!) that have something to do with balance. OK, she explained it better but I forget. Anyway, one of these crystals came loose and is rattling around causing the bed spins/dizziness. She said if I'm lucky it will go away on its own in a week or two. I'm not sure what happens if it doesn't go away on its own.

It had been getting better but this morning has been a bit of a bother. I'm having to be careful about turning my head too quickly and bending over is risky. The dizziness is making me nauseous so there's that fun as well. The discomfort is killing any desire to do anything useful. I'm probably not going to make it to the store for gumbo fixins'.

I've had some semi-obnoxious lower back pain for over a week. Yeah, yeah I need to lose...

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

My therapist ended our session today by saying, "Stay safe and pray for America" and I felt that was a pretty ominous way to leave things tbh.

Thank you Phetasy Pham for the #DropInsWelcome zoom call. I learn so much every single week from all of you.
