Yep, you read the title correctly, EATING SLUGS PROMOTED. John and I watched my episode of 72 Hours again last night after our hot tub session. We snuggled up on the couch and acted like it was the first time seeing it while my legs twitched this way and that. Gotta love spasms. That is […]
I’m weaning from Gabapentin. I called my neurologist two weeks ago and got the low down on a “safe” weaning process from the dreaded drug. I’m going to share it with you.

As if with the tranquility of canoeing Nantahala Lake in mind, the sun did not shine directly through the window. Instead it in slipped in silently and tempted our senses peripherally while caressing the trees along the creek’s bank with a soft golden warmth. We woke up in each other’s arms to the sweet music […]

There’s something about healing water that puts everything into perspective. Our drive to Franklin, NC was beautiful. We slept in the back of the Rav4 at a rest stop in Virginia, and arrived at Sue and Bud’s house in the early afternoon. On Bud’s suggestion, we left the dogs at their house and went to […]
