New Year's Resolution

I'm not sure why exactly, but reading GGP's account of his two-months' struggle with a rather mysterious illness has just kicked me in the ass a bit. I'm going to make an actual resolution for 2013 ... maybe two.

  1. I'm going to write in this here blog every week. I've been too unmotivated -- lacking in energy -- to write. But I'm going to do it, even if I have nothing to write about. And I'll write short.
  2. Get on top of this stupid disease: go to the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome clinic in Palo Alto. I forget what it's called. But I'm going to go. And I'm going to do what they tell me. And I'm going to try every stupid California new age acupusher thing that crosses my path.

"After weeks of social and physical confinement, small rituals become a huge deal, like tasting my first cup of coffee in the morning..." This is true big time for me, the more time I spend in bed or ill or with limited mobility the more I build up small events and look to them for happiness.

Too true, Liz. Smoking was becoming that for me, until I got -- wait for it -- allergic asthma and had to quit smoking. All I'm left with for vices now is food. No caffeine, no nicotine, no booze. Argh!
