Some topics covered this week:

  • In a lot of pain this week, and I can add a Sciatica diagnosis to the mixed bag that is my health of late. Emergency doc called it and family doc confirmed it. Fun. In an opiate fog mostly. 😦
  • Sitting in an emergency room for 3+ hours really puts any problems you think you might have in perspective. Such forced confinement should be mandatory for some.

Until next week, happy writing!
