Forget Waterboarding

What they really should've done at Guantanamo Bay was give everyone prednisone, then taken them off prednisone and just when the steroid withdrawal was at its peak, infected them with the stomach flu.

We would've found Bin Laden within days.

If they wanted to find Laden sooner, add in an infant who never sleeps or a very active toddler in a room with a broken baby gate.

Waterborading. Pffft. That's for sissies.

I'm alive (and wheezing unfortunately). Inordinately sore thanks to prednisone's effect on the muscles. Living on Sprite, crackers and today adding kefir--amazingly I have to have the carbs or the blood sugar tanks in a no good, very bad way--I am not used to this.

Taking bets on when this will hit the poor toddler--anyone want to guess? I was about 36-48 hours behind the hubby. So that puts the toddler at Thursday or Friday, but she was also licking my Sprite bottle while I was urmmm 'otherwise occupied', so we swapped spit.

I do have some posts written up that I'll set to publish so the blog doesn't go dead.


  1. I've been reading your blog for a few days now and I just thought I'd drop you a note and say that I enjoy reading your blog because I love the way you write.
    I'm sorry you are going through so much. I have PCOS also, so i can kind of understand where you are coming from. I don't think I've had as severe issues as you have seemed to have from it though. So, I consider myself lucky in that aspect. I did have a dermoid tumor that they had to remove, along with my ovary.
    Anyway, just thought I'd let you know that I enjoy your writing. =)
    Feel free to come visit me over at my blog =)

    (btw, I found you from Chronic Babe)

  2. I'll get to blog hopping soon! Thanks for the comment.

    I think PCOS is a spectrum some fall on the lighter end and some on the heavier end. I'm probably off the spectrum somewhere near impossible.


Thanks for your comment. I read all comments and do my best to respond to questions, usually in a new post.
