Lipitor Blues

Posted 05-23-2013 at 11:03 PM by goldenmyst

I've been seeing the same doctor for almost 9 years now. I've been on the same meds almost that long. However, last month he put me on a lipitor cholesterol reducing med. Since then I've been more irritable, less creative, and more cloudy in my thinking. I rarely write poetry anymore.

So I did research. There are myriad articles and studies showing that this med can have cognitive side effects. I told this to my doctor and he dismissed it. He acknowledged that there was controversy...

I sustained a median nerve injury this last week, which has made me think that I'd been going to far, too fast. I've always been a masochist, but I think I've taken physical attrition a step too far during the past month.

With masochism in mind, I've selectively turned to my television for some reprieve, and I've been pleasantly surprised. I discovered a new small local band, which had pulled a nostalgic streak out of me with their cute harmonies. You can listen to them via this...

20 years on

It's been twenty years since I first joined my first martial art classes and typically, I started doing two at the same time.

Two decades and four styles later, I find myself still cataloging my bruises (eight of them) and gauging the familiar grinding sounds from my knees, but you know, I'm still grinning.
