Home is wherever I’m with you

While my medical treatment for the issue is fairly recent, I have had anxiety issues for as long as I can remember. It tends to come in waves with depression, and when I get them both at their peak, I find myself falling into patterns of feelings that are hard to navigate, let alone overcome.

Anxiety is a tricky puzzle, because there are so many components to it. It is worrying, intensified. There are all the usual parenting concerns, but also deep fears I’ve carried since long before my son was even born. There are moments of regret over dumb things I’ve said and done recently, but also nights when I am kept up from sleep beating myself up over things from middle school or even younger. There are family concerns, money concerns, work concerns, health concerns … but amplified, incessant, and absolutely unable to be soothed.

The silly thing is that even though in the moment, these things feel so critical, my logical brain knows they are not worth worrying about. … Read More

Mike Tyson is effecting my weight loss.

How does a person who lost 230 pounds, became the man that he knew he was and completely turned his physical around gain more than 100 pounds back get into a groove that will again allow him to drop back into Superman status? This is my quandary.
I ask myself constantly how did I do it? how did I drop 230 pounds the first go around? most importantly how can I do it again? I walk, I eat decent (I’ll admit I am not doing my part 100% where eating goes) but it seems that lately no matter what I do, no matter how hard I work the weight does not come off. I was doing yard work Tuesday and felt awesome because well, my yard looks amazing in the spring and I was getting what I have always considered “free exercise” by doing the work. fast forward to last night and I am itchy… My nemesis has returned, yep Poison Ivy, I must have missed that I pulled some roots up that were hairy and bamn! my fragile skin which cries at night thinking about poison ivy came in contact and this morning I … Read More

Rehash & Revolution

My lower spine issues started when I was in HS (1997):  A beefy linebacker bodychecked me into a wall during an game of speedball in gym class.  I was walking around bent over for a week.  But I didn’t go to the doctor.

In 2000, I was in my forensic anthropology class at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.  I was bent over a lab table examining specimens and just couldn’t stand up straight.  I went right to the GWU ER.  They took x-rays, gave me pain medication and NSAIDs, and sent me for followups with a specialist.  That specialist (older male, I forget if he was ortho/neuro) asked me if I was having “too much rough sex.”  I shit you not. He sent me home with a pamphlet of old people having sex.

In 2006, I went to a ortho because I was experiencing pain/numbness when I was sitting.  This is also when I noticed how my hip would click.  They did an x-ray and they diagnosed me with a generic “lumbar strain” a… Read More

Middle Aged? Not Too Late to Get Benefit from Activity

Swedish researchers published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) a study that aimed to examine how change in level of physical activity after middle age influences mortality and to compare it with the effect of smoking cessation. Researchers surveyed 2205 men aged 50 in 1970-3, then re-examined them at ages 60, 70, 77, and 82 years. They found that mortality was lowest among the most active men. Men who increased their activity level from low/moderate to high between the ages of 50 and 60 saw a drop in mortality after an initial period of 10 years. Before 10 years, no survival advantage was observed. An increase in physical activity has the same impact on lowering mortality rate in the long term as smoking cessation.
