Life is swell at Howdygramland.

Just a short post from Howdygramland — the happiest blog on earth — since I started taking the maximum dose of Amitriptyline Hydrochloride to relieve my pain from peripheral neuropathy. Lucky me, it also happens to be an ANTI-DEPRESSANT, so to say I’m feeling great right now would be the understatement of the century!
Practically pain-free for the first time in years, I’m also sleeping like a rock, losing weight, my energy level is through the roof and I’ve even been fantasizing about going to a museum or shopping at the mall. With any luck I should be able to ditch my cane within the next couple of weeks, so keep your fingers crossed.

I feel like a kid of 55 again. God bless my happy pills!

As long as I’m on the subject, I officially set the wheels in motion today to collect a lump sum pension payout from a former employer. It’s a substantial chunk of dough that I honestly never anticipated, and I’m even at an age where I can withdraw money from an IRA without penalty. I find this incredibly difficult to believe, because a couple of weeks ago I was only 35 years old.

Sam will be home from work soon, so it’s time to head into the family room for watermelon and a movie. Thank you for reading this.
