Bullet Journaling For the 21st Centuary

At the beginning of the year, I began Bullet Journaling. (Bujo for short.) I really enjoyed it but I lost interest because it just didn’t work for me.

Looking For The Silver Lining – February 2017

Last month wasn’t a very good month healthwise… My Cluster Headaches returned after a seven year hiatus! I’m now on propranolol which is taking the edge off the pain but not doing away with it completely!  I also had some test results that were kind of expected but also wasn’t… This means I have to have a… Continue reading Looking For The Silver Lining – February 2017
