  1. stiff, sore & in pain (although acclimating to it)
  2. just adding our thoughts as well: try to log your symptoms, as you recall them; blogging about them here is a good way to do that, so nothing extra is needed that you aren't already doing. that way you have a trail with dates should you need to answer "when did this start?" "how long" etc. keep reaching out to get your concern heard; we like Gearhead's idea about consulting with your pharmacist. strength, cheese!
  3. NPR politics podcast...one of the few things about politics that (usually) doesn't make us want to throw furniture and rant/scream.
  4. did you get a blood pressure monitor? we have a wrist one that is easily operated and gives reliable readings (our primary doctor recommended it). we find keeping an eye on the numbers we can self-monitor (weight, blood sugar, blood pressure) very helpful.
  5. itchy and scratchy finally, though, the cool weather pattern has arrived
  6. pins-n-needles in scalp (mainly) and also other body parts angry/disgusted: what the hell re: the entire US gov't?
  7. sending gentle support pain: spikes through-out the day...
  8. cuspy: season is shifting. everything unsettled. (tdoc tomorrow, thankfully).
  9. craving sugar also wishing butt crack would stop aching
  10. gender dysphoria: why can't boobs (& genitalia) be velcro'd on and off at will?
  11. @Raspberry sending you strength and support; we know what it's like getting the run-around from mental health folks and the shove-off from family. the folks and forums here have been integral in keeping us on this planet. gentleness to you.
  12. where's the reset button?

  13. when is it going to start snowing?

  14. our therapist takes a few notes, here and there...writing down main points and important topics we discuss. the cool thing? she's open to letting us see what she's written, when we feel the need; that's an unusual thing from the community agency we were going to a while ago.
  15. it's good to come back to friends.

  17. siren AC window unit next floor up cats snoring
  18. add queer and disabled (perhaps subtracting young...dunno...) and we are in a similar situation. support.
  19. hang gliding: living in the mountains it would be quicker to get to where we need to go than driving...and wet and sand and especially wet sand are ICKY. cacti, ferns or flowering plants?
  20. chirping birds humming fridge upstairs neighbors two-stepping
  21. where can we get french fries at 1:30 am?

  22. our ENT says The Body produces 2 quarts of snot a day in the sinuses alone...and that number will double or triple when ill. we would like to experience sneezing in zero Gs, just once.
