Prostate. There are a couple of health issues that might interest you. You may recall that I had my prostate operation one month ago on May 31st. There are no symptoms remaining from that operation. No longer do I get up at nite to use the bathroom. During the day when I have to go pee, I still have urgency problems. But urgency has nothing to do with the prostate. For me it has to do with the sphincter muscles of the bladder. I am doing exercise to strengthen these muscles and this seems to be working.
Emotional health issues are an ongoing challenge. Yesterday I wrote to you about the possibility of my using an anti-depressant. In order to get a prescription for an anti-depressant, I will need to see a psychiatrist. The plan is to return to the psychologist that I was seeing last October and ask her for a psychiatrist recommendation.
Sleeping pills. In addition to the anti-depressant, I am also going to ask the psychiatrist for medication to help me fall asleep. Often when I go to bed I begin thinking about the David situation and sleep does not come. Just after David's suicide because of being very upset, I did not sleep for several days in a row. I got a prescription for Temazapan 15mg. This is a sleeping pill that works really great for me. I use this medication from time to time and still have several capsules remaining from that original prescription.
Biopsy results. I just checked online for the results for the biopsy of the growth removed from my head on June 23rd. The lab does not have results yet.
1PM - In the yard
I'm sitting on the dance stage. When Pete and the band have a get-together here, guests dance on this wood platform or stage. The home is far enough from any major streets so that traffic noise is minimal. Lots of tweeting birds though. I like that a lot! During the nite time, it is dead quiet here. No street lites shine on MsTioga during the nite.
Did I mention to you that I invested in a Verizon wireless modem? It is an extravagance because now I have three ways to get online. The Datastorm connects to HughesNet. Our Hawking Dish connects to unsecured WiFi. And now this tiny wireless Verizon modem plugs into a USB port and connects to the vast Verizon network. The Verizon works really great with the MacBook Pro, which is my favorite computer of all time. .
