Atlas Shrugged and went back to work

In my understanding of Ayn Rand, I have found that she is cold and unforgiving, but at least she is the one thing I really admire in a girl, she’s consistent. I reread the book after about fifteen years and I find that the hero to me is Eddie Willers. In Ayn Rand’s opinion, I believe it would probably be Dagney Taggert. I am astounded at how I’ve changed in fifteen years. Fifteen years ago, I felt that this book represented my world view and what I aspired to be. Today, I find the book represents my world view and I am a complete failure. I have more in common with the demonized moochers and looters than I have with the various heroes of the book. Am I proud of it? No. Am I going to make weak excuses as to the reasons I am this way. Absolutely. I’m Bipolar. I have brain damage. My cortisol levels are low. I’m an alcoholic and of course, my favorite…. I have been sick at various levels on and off since I was fourteen. I have been tired my whole life. Now, here is the negative result of me reading this book. It astounds me that I would put these excuses up for the world to see,¬† but I know that nobody is going to read this. I’ve gotten various bots posting things but that’s it…. I hereby resolve to quit using my illnesse(For three weeks, it’s been bronchitis) as an excuse to not go off of my medication. Now, those of you in the peanut gallery may be saying, that’s not a good idea. I assure you that if I want to become a productive member of society, I need to go off these meds, so here’s the plan. A)Quit coffee by Saturday, B) Start wheedling back on meds by Monday. C) Keep exercising every day and D) Remember that to be a productive member of society may be the most rebellious thing I could do these days. Freedom in Christ is the only freedom there is. Amen

My Series Of Happy Health Surprises

My area of interest tends to be politics so I expected this to be a political blog that nobody read, but my first post comes to me in a state of frustration. It will be a single health blog to be unread among many an unread political blog. I have, for seven months, been trying to recover from what my psychiatric medication has been doing to me. I have been seeing a naturapath¬†, exercising consistently, dieting and living cleaner than I have ever lived. Lo, in March, I found that I have Estradiol levels that are very high for a man. So, after the diet, exercise, etc., I have a thinner body, but man boobs and love handles that won’t go away. So, I jump online. I delve into the many secrets, symptoms and natural treatments for high estradiol levels. I take DIM during the day, ZMA at night and hope that all is well with the world. Yesterday, I find after trying to remedy these things myself, I also have dangerously low cortisol levels and my estradiol levels have risen by roughly 30%. I am immersed in the study of treating cortisol levels and if it is anywhere near as successful as I was at treating my estradiol levels, I may quit getting out of bed. No one wants to hear this, so, I’m lucky no one will read it. I don’t trust doctors, but I may have to give them another try. I am up a creek. In politics, how bout that Wiener?
