Dang it my vomiting is back. So I am stopping exercise.
The present moment is pine smelling.

I have started choking on water and vomiting. It happened at Line Dance, so I have stopped going there. Carol suggested I make an appointment with a speech therapist for suggestions about how to handle that, which I did.
I thought I would have to stop going to the gym. Carol pointed out the gym is very helpful. I agreed to try not drinking there. That worked. I had been taking a sauna there, which I stopped, so I won’t get as dehydrated. I miss that. Exercise helps my balance and the endorphins feel good. My routine at the gym is less demanding than at line dance.

I had an embarrassing moment, when I turned over and broke some of Lena’s childhood art. I was thinking it might be time for a facility, if I am breaking irreplaceable things. Carol said she didn’t think Lena would notice it.
Carol complimented me on not resisting using a walker. I told her I would rather have people know I am disabled than have them think I am drinking after all the work I went to get sober.
The haldol was giving me trouble with terrible insomnia. I was thinking I might have to reduce the dose, making it less effective. Carol suggested asking my HD expert if I can take a stronger sleeping pill. He said I could add a sleeping pill, which worked.

Carol pointed out I have broken one of our dining room chairs. That led to a moment of thinking I should move into a facility, if I am damaging furniture. I bring that up because I feel protective of Carol. She said I could use a more secure chair.
The present moment is sunny.

My friend John gave me a ride to see Dr. Volk, who was very helpful about my thumb, giving me a steroid shot. Now I can rub Carol’s foot. John also hung around while I took my glasses to be straightened after twisting them in a fall.
I forgot to mention John’s wife, Ellen took me to line dance class, when my standing date, Liz, couldn’t. Ellen was a very quick study, picking up the dances. Also, my friend Mary frequently includes runs to the dog park as part of our lunches.
The present moment is cool.

I dropped my current pair of glasses and broke them, too. I asked Carol for help getting glasses and picking out frames, since she is femme enough. She wound up doing that while I was away for a writing day. Carol said it took her longer than she had expected to do that. I would like her to have more time to do her own art, which is photography.
I had a problem with headaches. Carol figured out I was taking too many ibuprophen and making them worse. She sure is smart.
I am having a recurring problem with tendonitis in my thumb (mouse hand). I have a brace that helps with that. I miss giving Carol foot rubs.
While my friend Dick is laid up after knee surgery, my other friend, Rose, has been giving me rides to the gym. She also helped me fill out the form to apply for the Access van. Another standing date for the gym, Nancy, can’t do it, next week, so Mary standing in (or driving in).
The present moment is cozy.
