Dogs and Cats and POTS, oh my!

My four days of solitude passed much faster than I would have liked. On the first day, my biggest accomplishment was to trigger some sort of POTS episode that almost made me pass out (more on this in a bit) and by the second day, I felt guilty for sitting around and embarked upon one...

Recharging and refocusing

My partner left early this morning to visit an old school friend for the next four days. Since getting the nine pets taken care of in the morning is a lot of work, and I am still feeling run down from the Charleston trip, I decided to take today and tomorrow off to have four... Continue Reading →

I liked her, and the whole experience was pretty positive; she also has a family practice out of the office... Continue Reading →

The holiday stress ratchets up… 

After the unpleasant mess of the last holiday, I'd hoped this one would be different. Once again, we had both family obligations to juggle, and an invite from a friend to spend Christmas with her family, something we've done for the past several years. The latter is the more appealing option, but the former is... Continue Reading →
