The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

The bad; a reoccurring breathing problem (Taking Your Breathe Away).  The diagnosis was asthma.  I guess loosely defined, I would agree.  Treating the symptoms with out identifying the cause is worrisome.

The good; the second round of oral steroid and antibiotics beat back the chronic symptoms.

The ugly; this go-round the antibiotics destroyed the good bacteria in my gut which left me very sick.  So sick,  it was a tough choice deciding whether to stand or sit to get the necessary relief I needed.  A daily dose of “live cultures” will reintroduce that which was lost.

Down in my basement, lined neatly on a shelf are handwritten notebooks chronicling my life. After years of writing, the experience became more of a burden then an important part of my day so I quit writing. Five years later I took up writing again.

From there my blog content morphed into writing about my general contractor experience building our house. As my life experiences grew so did my blog.
