Alexx update, September 2016
Bar Harbor
So, it's been a while since I did one of these. On a new (ish) antidepressant, that seems to be helping. All eager to get progress going on my various projects. Only to be held back by my chronic pain issues.

Physical Therapy continues to be partially effective, but not to cure me. Currently on a break from it, waiting for more insurance authorization. Sadly, my current (best yet) therapist is getting booted upstairs to management, so even if I get more visists approved, I won't be seeing him any more.

My (mental) therapist suggested an experiment, which I am now in the midst of: spending a month with minimal keyboard interaction, to see if extended rest makes a difference. Please be patient with typos, as I'm using mobile devices to post. At first was very frustrated, as work on my front-burner projects had to be back-burnered. But now I'm working on some previously back-burnered stuff that I can do via mobile.

(Also, am helping Kes with a 'close reading' of Stranger Things, that she is thinking of turning into a thesis.)

That sounds like a worthy, and yet completely frustrating, experiment.

I hope the experiment helps

What about a speech to text program? It's not like you don't know People who work on that!

Tried it. Good for straightforward writing like LJ. For more complex tasks, slow/awkward and killed my voice so I couldn't read aloud to Kes that night. Experiment: fail.
