Catching up

Monthly dex pulse: On September 1st, I started monthly dex pulses. I used to take 40 mg once weekly. It wasn’t as bad as I remembered my initial dex pulses to be. When I first started taking it in April, it was 4 days on, then 4 days off (4 times). I saw my acupuncturist 3 of the 4 days, and I was able to sleep every night without drugs for at least 4-5 hours.

Big storm: Last Thursday there was a big storm that took out my wireless router, my TiVo/satellite receiver, broadband modem and garage door. I spent an hour on the phone with tech support. I don’t live inside my own DSL service area, so I have to get Internet service from someone else. I already knew that the ethernet interface on the modem was bad, but you have to jump through all kinds of hoops to convince them that you didn’t do something stupid that caused your service outage. DirecTV has a special deal on the TiVo/receiver replacement and installation, and someone will be here Wednesday to install. I’m so used to being able to fast forward through commercials!
