I have had a pretty nice day today after about two weeks of back pain hell. I went to a new doctor, an internist, yesterday, who is referring me to a pain management clinic, as well as back to physical therapy. He also prescribed me some muscle relaxers and pain medication. … Read full post »

Three days ago, I decided to give vegetarianism a go. There was no particular moral reason or epiphany behind this decision. I mainly just wanted to see if I could do it. Understand, I'm the type of person who loves steak (and chicken and turkey) and when I eat my steak,… Read full post »
For some reason the latest birthdate year you can enter in on your Open Salon Profile is 1976. Not sure why. I was born in the early 80's. Oh well. Read full post »
As I stated in a previous post, I was diagnosed with OCD, anxiety, and depression at around age 17. My brother has a lot of the same problems, as does my mother. I've been on a myriad of drugs and tried therapy as well. A list of the anti-depressant/anti-anxiety meds that… Read full post »
... after a nearly six month hiatus. Not much to report. I gave physical therapy a go through the end of December, and when the new year started, I had to meet a deductible again and had to quit going. I'm starting to have pain again, and, now that I've met… Read full post »

... what the tipping point will be.
I have been struggling with chronic pain for a while now. I have a job that i hate, in which I get no respect. I get yelled at by random people because their computers or Blackberries don't work and I can't give them answers quickly… Read full post »
... was a big waste of time. They x-rayed the area in which I'm having pain (I'm not certain of the exact location, but I think it's about T-4 or T-5 of my thoracic spine - it's level with the end of my left shoulder blade). He stated that everything looked… Read full post »

I had a relatively pain free day yesterday, only to start hurting really badly right as I went to bed. The pain is in the same location of my back at which I had my surgery last year. It's a twisting, stabbing pain in the thoracic region, just slightly left of… Read full post »
Hello dear readers,
So I haven't too well lately. Firstly, I've had a horrible case of sinusitis which has lasted for several weeks. I finally broke down and went to the doctor yesterday and was given a round of steroids and antibiotics, but he was most concerned with my untreated asthma… Read full post »
...so I colored my hair. There's really not much more to say.
Let's just say the verdict is still out.
My hair is reddish brown - more red in the summer and brown in the winter - with blonde highlights. Not looking forward to the "blah" brown to come, I dyed… Read full post »
Hey everyone... sorry it's been so long since I've been on. It's been crazy busy at work and my computer at home has had some issues, so right now I'm trying to bang out another rant in a fairly short amount of time.
I've ranted many times about the fundamentalist types. … Read full post »
So, Hubby and I had an interesting trip to the coast last week. It all started last wednesday, while I was at work. Smoke started pouring out of my car on my lunch break. I took off early and took it to the nice, honest mechanic by my house, who luckily… Read full post »
So, here comes another birthday on Saturday. I'll be 28.
Here comes another September 11. Ever since the terrorist attacks, I've had mixed feelings when my birthday rolls around. Most of the, "Well your birthday is easy to remember," comments have died down at this point.

Today is the five year anniversary of the landfall of Hurricane Katrina on Lousiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. As such, I've decided to post my recollections of this event.
