So, I am back exactly 1 month after my last post... boy, I am really burning up the blogosphere (/sarcasm).

Heat has been the issue as of late. When it gets into the 80's and 90's and so forth, it is a pain in the ass. I get fatigued. I start having issues concentrating. I have issues with more random pains. Sometimes everything seems to close in and I cannot function correctly.

Oh, btw, I added a bunch more medicine to my current regimen, so the headaches are better. I also had several spinal steroid shots. The headaches are more manageable now, but are not gone. It is amazing what my pain tolerance is now. I laid in recovery for my spinal shot which I barely noticed, and listened to people moan and cry in pain from the same shot. The pain tolerance is nice, but the cause of it is no so nice.

I started smoking again. I shouldn't do it. But, when you have so many other things to deal with, it is hard to give it up. On top of that, I am not eating correctly. I generally skip everything but dinner... too busy, I guess. Another thing I need to get into the habit of doing.

Back to the heat. It is messing with my memory and my moods. Mainly making me depressed. Maybe not depressed in a clinical sense, but depressed nonetheless.

I have so many thing I need to do:
  • quit smoking
  • exercise every day
  • eat every meal in moderation
  • cut out my self medication (drinking)
  • get a sleeping habit together so I can fall asleep at night
  • get to work on time (hard to do)
  • stop drinking so much caffeine
  • fix this
  • fix that
  • upgrade this
  • upgrade that
  • build this
  • build that
  • etc
  • etc
  • etc
  • etc
  • etc
My list seems to be overwhelming to me. And, what is even harder is to remember it! Especially in the HEAT.
