(as originally posted at Sundog Tales Its another sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest. Starting into the best time of year not too cold, not too many bugs, and a few more sunny days. It only lasts about a month, usually most of April though this year it is late. Life has been moving...

(originally posted at Sundog Tales) What is Healing? I have pondered this question many times. Recently, I have begun to see signs of deep physical healing at long last, but why? What has changed? I now sleep 12-15 hours a day. Thats a 10-12 hour night and one or two naps during the...

(as originally published at Sundog Tales) With the holidays upon us, seemed a good time to share our recipe for Paleo Pancakes. These are a bit different than many similar recipes online as we designed them to be high density protein with a good dose of veggies - basically, a balanced paleo...

(originally posted at Sundog Tales) As the title implies, today is the one year anniversary of this blog. I've spent the last few days trying to decide what type of post to write for marking such a momentous occasion. I could write a review of the changes, or lack there of in many cases, seen...

Quick news flash! Dramatic happenings going on in camp today. A short while ago Jeremy was out washing a dish when he spotted a mole above ground seeming to scratch an itch on his hind leg. They are pretty cute up close and it was a very rare treat to get to see one. But something seemed...

My life has been led by far too much fear. If you had asked me ten years ago while I was still healthy, I would have been very sure that fear played little role in the direction life was taking. I would have been wrong. Over the last several months I have been thinking about fear's...

A couple weeks ago I injured my left wrist while slipping on one of our dirt paths around here. They get a lot of loose gravel and debris on them when the weather turns warm and dry after months of rain, all the mud dries leaving stuff loose under foot. A few re-injuries of the same wrist...

July 1st is a day of remembrance for me. It was this day six years ago when my mother passed away from complications of the same illnesses I now have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS). She was only 55. Ivanna Pausmann led a difficult but very...

Had another phone appointment yesterday with Dr. Buscher our CFS/MCS specialist. Seemed time to consult him since Jeremy and I had tried everything we could think of doing on our own but to no avail. It didn't take Dr. Buscher long to figure out what is very likely happening to us. This year...

I wrote a letter to a good friend last night and oddly, turns out we both had the same ideal - that the things I said in the letter need to be heard by more than just one person. This is a very candid view of my life right now. Edited only for name, "Late night chat" Hola! :) Its about 1...

I had very vivid dreams last night of driving to town and going grocery shopping. For most people this surely would have been a pretty mundane dream and rather boring even. For me, its usually the nearest I come to living normally again because most things like this are beyond me at this time...

Have I mentioned that I love my doctor? I had an appointment with Dr. Buscher this morning, by phone because of the great difficulty in personally seeing him. It was time to check-in with him as to our last six months and go over what testing Jeremy and I should have before seeing him in...
