Tew's Day!

Something that ought to be said, because I'm getting "thank goodness you're all better!" feedback from people...

Yes, I'm doing better. But this is not a cure.

There's no cure for fibromyalgia. I still need naps, though less often. I'm still in pain daily - it's just a general baseline of 3 instead of 5. My memory is better, but I will still forget things.

And there's definitely no cure for epilepsy.

Trust me, if ever they find a cure? I will be shouting from the rooftops. You will know.

I'm doing a lot better, but do keep in mind that I am not Cured.

Daily Science
For more than 20 years, the only known superconductors that worked far above liquid-helium temperatures were a few dozen compounds—virtually all based on copper. Now scientists have discovered the first high-temperature superconductors based on iron. These novel materials could help unravel one of the biggest mysteries in science—how exactly the high-temperature versions work.

Plans
Editing and auction stuff. Hopefully also a bit of writing. But Elayna's been on her computer this whole damn trip, so I also have to drag her out and get her doing stuff, which kinda hampers my ability to get anything done myself. Wish me luck.

EDIT: Screw that, because my grandmother is on her way here to spend the day with us. So that's another workday stolen.

In the latter half of your entry, the HTML doesn't work.

I tend to think better in terms of a flare. Does that make sense?

I'll have to check out that post you linked to about relating to men more. I'm a straight male who has always related to women more. Hmmm.

"* Article on Landmark Forum. (My first husband's family dragged me to one of these once.)"

You have my sympathies.

In my early 20s, I got dragged to one of those once by a coworker. They kept at me that night until they made me cry, then surrounded and "love-bombed" me, refusing to let me go. Yet somehow, my stubborn "don't you DARE presume to tell me who I am" streak asserted itself and I told them none too sweetly to back the hell off and let me out.

I chewed that coworker a new one the next day. She never bothered me again.

the epilepsy has, of late, disappeared enough to get me to a state where I maybe get my hopes up, and then it says, 'screw you, I'm baaaaaack.'
