Just broke down in tears at a coffee shop. I've had a lot of problems with depression and I thought I was making progress but now I feel at step one again. I see my counsellor again on Friday, but I think I need to use the telephone helpline she's given me tonight.

Make the call, MM.

On a different note, we recently started letting our cat out on our apartment deck. We didn't for months, because he crawls up on the roof of the neighboring apartment which juts out and we thought he might fall.

The problem is our complex has tons of cats and she has to look at all the other cats who get free reign of the complex. I feel bad because now she knows what she's missing.

She got out the other week because my son's friend left the front door open and I found her yowling on the ground floor with a mouse in her mouth. She saw me and dropped the mouse and started yowling even more. I think it was a little too much freedom that she knew what to do with.

I'm still wondering what kind of coffee you ordered.

I listen to sports talk radio on the way to and from work and they have this commercial for Andro 400, some kind of weight loss/testosterone pill.

One supposed customer says he went from a 48" waist to a 44" waist and he's back to the same weight as his 30s. I'm thinkin', "A 44 waist in your 30s isn't so hot. And going from a 48 to a 44 is skipping a cheeseburger a week at that size."

The other guy says he now walks 12 miles a day using this stuff. Do you know how long it takes to walk 12 miles every day? I hate to tell him, but he can probably lay off the Andro 400 now.

Don't ever feel apologetic about that MM. People care about you and want you to be safe and happy. Holding it in won't fix things. Best of luck and hope you are truly feeling better.

See you on the other side.


I’m so happy for you Les! This is amazing.

It was only an hour or two but when I awoke at 3:50 this morning it felt bizarre to realize I had been unconscious for some time. Nausea is gone and I feel I am over the worse part. This morning I made my favorite green tea and listened to Eno's The Ship, I'm Set Free was particularly poignant. I can't believe how much better I feel this morning. I think I can see the finish line.


Brilliant news Les. I hope your recovery continues apace.

I'm interviewing for communications manager for a regional transit agency that services 175,000 people a day and over 52 million a year.

Having been in the industry before, I'm doing some prep work for this afternoon's interview by looking at their most recent ridership study.

12 routes in Oakland and Berkeley comprise over 50% of daily riders so I hope to have that little factoid in my bag of tricks when talking to them.

There were some brutal days. Three hours of sleep total over four days. Last night I finally got 4-5 hrs which is the most at one time for a week so I've been pretty compromised.

Sounds like you are through the worst of it, Les. I hope you have found other ways to manage the pain effectively and can move on.

Thanks. Today I'm feeling pretty normal though I've only been up for 45 minutes. This is day eight so I should be done with most symptoms. Rough road and glad I'm at the end of it.

Man, got a gout flare up last night. Problem is, I can't think of the trigger of anything I ate or drank to cause it. I'm very careful these days.
