I’m super proud of myself because of the dumbest thing

For the last couple of weeks, all the unwanted attention I receive from chronic sleep deprivation has rendered be useless during the day while the boys are at school.

After getting the boys to school, I would come home and basically crash for at least a few hours because I was so exhausted.

It’s really frustrating for me because I want to sleep and night and not during the day.… Read More

This over stressed single Dad almost gave in tonight 

I know that this won’t register with everyone as being a truly positive thing because in the grand scheme of things, especially in my life, there are much bigger fish to fry.  

That being said, for me personally, this is something that I’m really proud of.

I have some absolutely amazing news

We just got back from my doctors appointment and I have both amazing news and not so amazing news to share.

The bad news is that since starting my second antidepressant a few months ago, I’ve put on more weight. 

As a result, we changed my meds up and I’ll explain all about that in a later post. 

The amazing news is that my triglycerides are down.  I don’t mean just down either..  I mean DOWN…. 

They dropped by about 50 points, putting me well into the healthy range.  This is really awesome and I’m so relieved.  I’ve been worried abouty cholesterol for awhile now. 

Everything looks good and aside from weight-loss, my doctor is happy.  😊


Not everyone will get this but I think it’s a pretty awesome victory

I’ve actually cut my grass, for the second week in a row.  I know that sounds lame but do you know if how hard it is to get anything done with 3 kids on the Autism Spectrum?

I think I only managed to get my grass cut 3 or 4 times all summer last year… 

At the rate I’m going, I just might have an almost presentable lawn this year. … Read More
