I Ain't Doin' Nothin'

You read that right. Doing nothing is not part of the plan, so yes, I am doing something.

My plan says first be a person then do your best to live true to yourself. Here is a start:

Spironolactone 25 mg.

I was in my middle teens when Barbra first captured me with her wonderful voice; something I have never forgotten. Watching Funny Girl on the big screen I can remember disturbing feelings Omar Sharif's Nicky Arnstein brought and wondering what those feelings meant. 

What I remember even better though, I was Barbra singing "a feeling deep in your soul, says you were half now you're whole, " "but first be a person who needs people"


  1. HUGE step, Halle. Are you planning on adding any E-type drug? I didn't think spiro is used by itself.

    You're a brave lady.

    1. Unless there is some good reason to add E, the plan now is spiro only to relieve me of the fog. Spiro was originally prescribed as an anti-hypertensive. I have taken medication in the past for high blood pressure, so removing that and starting the spiro should be good for me in two ways.

      Brave or desperate?

  2. Oh Halle, I had missed this post and now feel silly seeing that I
    am repeating your words in my comment to your next post.
