The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.


I’ve been lax in posting to my blog as of late. As you can well imagine I’ve got a lot on my mind these days and I don’t feel like sharing all of it online. Besides, I’m sure like most personal stuff, it comes across as a pretty boring read.

I’m working on getting this Diabetes thing under control. I’ve cut sugar out of my diet and am trying to work on my salt intake to help deal with my blood pressure issues. When I increased my dosage on the main drug I’m taking (as per Doctor’s instructions) my body wasn’t too happy with it. Part of it was my fault as I’d misread the instructions and upped the dose three days too early. Of course it had to happen on a weekend where my wife and I were going out of town. What should have taken a couple of hours took three with many stops along the way. It sucked but things do seem to have settled down and I’m adjusting to the new levels without further incident.

And while this current spate of medical issues do seem like a big thing to me. I’m fully aware others are dealing with worse. Something I remind myself when I feel like having a bit of a whinge.

Of course, when this sort of thing does happen, it does tend to make you really second guess your choices and as for resolution there, I’ll have to get back to you on that one.

I’m struggling to find the time to finish the next book and even while I’m in that head space, I can feel all of the other works starting to creep in at the edges. Which does tend to make me even more antsy when I can’t pull the time out of the day to write. If anybody has some suggestions there, I’m all ears.

As always, you can check out my books on

One thought on “Adjusting

  1. Reader says:

    Write something everyday. Even if it’s just one sentence. Not happy with what you wrote? Throw it away. The idea is just to have written something down and never go a day without having flexed that muscle. Don’t let the writing muscle atrophy. You’ll get through this. Thanks for the blog.
