Busy Week

I have a busy week filled with classes and meetings.I had several classes yesterday and a VIP tour. Today, I have another class and a few meetings, plus preparation for a class I’ll be teaching next week. I also have some prep work for upcoming programs/events at the museum. Tomorrow will be continuing with the same tasks, but I also have another meeting. 

I am scheduled to be off Friday for an appointment with my neurologist, but I may have to reschedule due to the winter storm we are expecting Thursday night and throughout the day Friday.  Hopefully, if I do have the reschedule, it will be fairly soon, though they might change it to a telehealth appointment since it’s really just a routine checkup about my new medicine that I’ve been taking for the past three months. The new medicine (Qulipta) has been successful except when there are changes in the weather which has been affecting me all week. I’ve woken with a migraine every day this week. Yesterday, it eased up as the day went on. That was not the case on Monday, but that was also aggravated by the dental work I had done. I’m hoping that the headache I currently have will get better throughout the morning.

Then, I have to work on Saturday. At least Saturday workdays are pretty easy. I basically just have to be there to open and close the museum and be there. I usually don’t have much to do on the Saturdays that I work. While I’d rather be home or doing something else, Saturday are not the worst day to work. At least I’ll be there by myself.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    I versus A

    There are two sides to every story
    One Y and Y not
    They can live separated
    Or dine together
    One white, one black
    One truth, one lie
    A comma, a circle
    One eternal round

    Whether boy or girls, straight or gay
    It’s nature’s choice, not ours to say
    Nurtured by elders, the future unclear
    Equality never; that’s what I fear
    For some life is flat, not merely sublime
    Others have mountains far greater to climb
    Never the same, always apart
    An enzyme is needed to soften the heart

    MLK was black, but the law was white
    Fighting for freedom, an equal right
    Raised in a land of North and South
    Freedom, freedom, the cries rang out
    We are all human, under the skin
    Whether black or white, fat or thin

    Opposites attract. The saying is true
    But Lillie’s survive in the same vase too
    They blossom, they bloom, they even raise
    Stamen to stamen, it’s not just a phase
    All shapes and forms, in nature survive
    No matter the color, no matter the hive
    If life were bland, who could sustain
    Monotony would conquer, none would remain

    Embrace our differences
    No matter the cause
    For life is a circle
    Without any pause
    Build on the same
    Tear not apart
    For God made us all
    He looks on the heart

    If Qulipta is working for most migraines, is there a med out there that might control the air pressure ones that you could take in combination?
