A few days ago I switched my blog to the new beta version, mainly because it was the only way I found to resurrect my blog from the bad formatting by which it was temporarily afflicted.
Now there's a new problem; I can't comment at my friends' non-beta blogs, which I tried to do. I couldn't post because the beta doesn't completely recognize the prior version for interaction. If you have trouble reading or posting to this site, please send me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org Also, those who have recently written me should be advised patience, as my hotmail account is still being held hostage and I can't access it.
As we age the tables turn; avoiding pain becomes more pleasurable than seeking pleasure. If you're 50 you'll understand it. That's where I'm at with my back and my bipolarity.
I prefer the term, "manic-depression," of course, because it gives the experience of the disease while "bipolar" pretends to scientific neutrality. This is not a neutral disease. It's very much either/or, for or against.
You could say Bush is bipolar on the war on terror.
As for the personal, I'm at 0.5 kilorats, though my brother thinks I'm higher and Kathleen thinks I'm better, so it doesn't matter. My loved ones are telling me I'm better at a time when I can handle the endorsement without feeling like a failure for not saving them all from pain.
Happy Labor Day!
