    I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's in 1993 and have been on levothyroxine ever since. My thyroid is pretty much a dead soldier now, but I do OK on just the one med.

    Luckily I have a family practice...

    My twenties were really tough. I was poor most of the time, so poor a couple of times that I could not afford food, and only was able to manage a meal every few days (no weight problem back then!). ...

    Please see a doctor ASAP. Concussions are serious, and with the amount of memory you lost, this is definitely something to get checked out.

    If someone tried to even approach my house, my neighbors' dogs would raise hell and so would my neighbors. Heck, when I have a visitor, I get phone calls from multiple people--"Hi, just checking...

    I just did this in July, for the second time.

    The first time was about 12 years ago--rented a pretty big one and did Dinosaur, Flaming Gorge, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone, and meandered back through...

    OK, that's it, I'm moving. But I think I need to find another planet...I can't think of anywhere else to live that doesn't have its own issues.

    Walking away (or not) is an extremely personal decision. 24 years after a really spectacular "hitting bottom" episode, I am very glad I did not walk away. Even if everything went south today,...

    I firmly believe the only reason to stay is because the relationship is more important than the alcoholism/addiction issue. Most of the alcoholics/addicts in my life are well worth time and effort;...

    Most of the sober alcoholics in my life are not religious, and neither am I. But the common thread for us is being big fans of AA and Al-Anon. My loved ones who fight this battle have many years of...

    Something fun to do with driving horses is to teach a three-point turn. I did that with both my driving ponies, so we can turn around in pretty limited space. I take Salt on a bridle trail that can...

    I used to always use it, but my husband insists it is bad for the brakes to use it all the time. I mostly park where it's totally flat (garage at home and garage at work), so I let him talk me out...

    I carry the entire Boulder Symphony in my car. It gets a little weird when the tympani guy really gets going...and it gets crowded having that many people in a Ford Focus.

    I thought the original "The Shining" movie was filmed in England? But it seems to me the later miniseries was actually done at the Stanley. I'm too lazy to look it up right now...

    My younger horse is in his mid twenties and pulls a cart for me--still loves a fast canter. My older horse is probably 35 or 36, hasn't had molars in ten years, and rules the corral and pasture with...
