I came across this article today while doing my feed read. I thought, “Hey look, the 15-billion-dollar schizophrenic drug market (cheaper to load the percentage that stays on meds up with older drugs, drugs that can permanently detrimentally affect cognitive ability when used long term, than it is to institutionalize them) is still sparking off studies.” Umm. yes. That’s not quite what I thought. Continue reading How’s it do with Schizophrenia?
I spent the past couple of weeks setting up a new computer. The last thing I had to do was merge some things from the computers old hard drive. Last night, I transferred all the data I wanted from that drive to the main drive then formatted the old one so that it could be used as a backup. I had the 2 TB drive in a shell and was using it as an external drive. I did a full format. It took about 12 hours. I slept through most of it. Continue reading Backup … backup
I’ve never been diagnosed with ADHD but a seemingly unending incoming stream of emails has been distracting me lately, I’m getting hyped about it, snd its time to deal with disorder before my deficit is causal to a cognitive chaos cascade. Continue reading Email Maintenance
The choices that those of us lucky enough to have many of can distract us from the important things in life. Starting each day in the presence of loved ones is a gift that is easy to overlook. I choose to avoid contact with large groups unless it is necessary. I don’t fear others and I harbor no ill will towards anyone I can think of at present, I just prefer a simpler life when I have the choice. My choices are reduced, distractions are minimized, and I can focus my attention on things that matter. Continue reading Abundance
North of east is more accurate. Once you leave Atlanta, there is only 300 km or so before you hit an ocean. We are heading somewhere along the coast in North Carolina. I believe our hotel is located on or adjacent to a Marine Corps based. I have some work to do so I’m passengineering. Continue reading Heading East – a ruluctant passengineer
I got lost on the way back from an appointment today. I decided to take the back roads, called someone I knew, turned off the phone’s GPS app bbecause Waze was interfering with my conversation. 30 minutes later I saw a sign to the highway I’d left 35 minutes earlier. I’d done one exit.
I got in the highway and headed south. Eight minutes to what locals call Spaghetti Junction. I’m not sure why. Perhaps the liked Italian food. I wonder about a lot of things.
It wasn’t much fun realizing I was going to spend an hour more in my car than I though I would. It got a little worse when I spaced aid missed the lane that was heading towards my home then it just got better when I got off to caught caught in a traffic jam. When I finally got home my computer wasn’t working right so now I’ve lost nearly 2 hours of my day to … what?
I missed Day 2 in the post a day challenge going on a WordPress. I’m not good at the consistency thing. I suppose I should make some money. I am fairly good at doing that sort of thing. I’d trade it in to be able to paint well.
I just found this in draft form. I started it last Friday and didn’t finish it. Here’s what I wrote:
Between the blogs, I seem to have a lot of stuff in draft form. I’ll insert some art I created today while taking a break from work in this one. Then I need to pack and go pick up Beth.
I wrote this Sunday evening, I believe. It says five days ago.
I started doing what I planned to do this summer a couple of evenings ago. Setting up my consultancy web presence was the plan. Instead, I blogged a fair amount, read much more of others material than I wrote and did some other incredibly exciting things, I just can’t recall them in detail. M&M’s keep popping into my thoughts. M&M’s hop, they don’t pop. Continue reading It took a bit longer than expected
