I’m Still Alive

August 8, 2009

For those who read my earlier posts thanks.  I’m sorry I’ve been out of sync with writing.  Every time I sit down to write the internal editor says “NO!” and deletes it.

There have been a lot of things to happen since my last post and I’ve just been overwealmed to say the least.  Many, if not all, who read here have seen or heard that my wife is pregnant with our first child.  That experience has led to a lot of self searching and depression that I’ve been working through.  But those parts are a story for another day, or likely not because I’m sure no one really needs to read about the destructive nature of man.

I’ve believe I have three reviews I’m currently working on, although I might try something interesting with one of them.  Plus I’m starting a couple of projects and while I’m not exactly sure how I will get them out.  I will notify on here first.

A couple months back in my post titled “You Make Me Want To Be A Better Person” I mentioned that I needed to take my pills.   Well I’ve remembered about fifty percent of the time now.  But it was kinda hard writing that post when I couldn’t say that my wife was pregnant.  I still go through a lot thinking that my health will lead to problems for me where I worry I might not get to see my children grow up.  So I’m gonna try and do this.  And if I can lose about fifty more pounds the doctor thinks I’ll be off at least one pill.

My reason for mentioning this again is to ask if anyone has any ideas for tracking and reminders.  I’m horrible at it (unless it’s my money).

Well to better days and hopefully reviews for next week.

Thank you everyone and good night.

    As for ways to remember things, if you’re a “list person” or think you could be, I’d recommend buying a cheap spiral-bound notebook. I have one for mostly school things, divided each day (usually done the night before the next day) into Before, During (school), and After. I’m really productive, considering the amount of stuff on my to-do list each day. You could divide yours into Morning, Afternoon, and Evening. Write your pills in wherever it’s appropriate.

    If you’re not a list person, I’d go with setting them somewhere conspicuous–maybe on or next to a nightstand if you need to take them before bed or first thing in the morning.

    Failing that, keep them in your pocket, and set your phone up to do an alarm at the appropriate times every day.

    Good luck, man!

    (Sorry I was out-of-the-loop for awhile. My online time has been limited–felt really crazy to learn a few weeks back that I’d missed the news of you two expecting!)

    I actually started using a site called “Remember the Milk” and it lets you setup lists and if you want you can integrate right in your your e-mail (if you have gmail) and it shows as a little sidebar, it changes colors when you’re late and things like that. So far it’s working great haven’t missed a pill in almost a week.
