Drug Trial Week 48 - Open Label

Posted 01-21-2009 at 09:46 PM by Doozer61

I can't believe it's been 48 weeks since I started this adventure. One that I put off for almost 4 months because of fear. But you never know.

I began this trial hoping that I was getting either 50% or 100% percent of the drug. After the first infusion in Feb 2008, I had a feeling I was getting something, especially with the initial reaction I had. Throat closing, hives, itching. Thinking it was the shrimp I ate for lunch that day, I stayed away from it for over 6 months but...

Missed it by that much!

Posted 01-12-2009 at 01:15 PM by Doozer61

Yesterday I almost had a heart attack in addition to winning a golf weekend trip courtesy of my friends but NOOOOOOOOO...... I missed it by 8 inches!

The elusive hole in one! Hole 6 at Little Rec Golf Course where we play religiously every Sunday morning, teeing off at 6:52 am.

Trouble

Posted 12-24-2008 at 12:21 PM by Doozer61

I have worked for the health dept for over 8 years now and somehow have acquired this nickname. I don't know where it came from or how it started. Several people call me by this name. Most of them don't even work in the same bureau nor do they know each other. But they all call me Trouble.

In my past I may have been trouble. At times, I have been in trouble. But how do they know that? Do I somehow look like trouble?

Another 2008 Accomplishment

Posted 10-18-2008 at 10:08 PM by Doozer61

In February, I rode in my first organized bike ride. I rode 10 miles in the Palm Springs heat for their Homeless Services.

In June, I rode for Diabetes and did 16 miles.

Today, I walked my first 5K. 3.1 miles for Diabetes. In one day, I raised almost $200 asking co-workers and friends for whatever change they had.

It was the longest walk of my life. When I saw the 1 mile marker, I thought this isn't so bad. When I got to 2 miles, I...

Watching a friend deteriorate

Posted 09-27-2008 at 11:33 PM by Doozer61

I know I haven't been around much and I have lots to share. The wedding, vacation, work, etc. But there's something else on my mind right now. And heavy on my heart.

My good friend, the one that dubbed me "doozer" is becoming an alcoholic right before my eyes. I know what it looks like and I don't like it one bit. And, yes, I am powerless over it.

I began seeing it in March. I thought it was a bit early to drink beer on the golf course, but it was her...
