Burzynski, South Park and RAD

Since I promised Tanya that I would write 365 blog posts that would help bring awareness of Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD) and to help promote the Rheumatoid Patient Foundation I have been attempting to be a little more aware of things that happen in our daily lives so I can be a little more diverse in my writings. While it would certainly be quite cute if all I did was write about our daily lives and how much fun we have together, it would not really do much to educate people about RAD.

Now, before I get started I want to apologize in advance as I know I am going to go off on tangents at times; in fact, this particular post is only part one of at least two parts. I usually write these things in my head before I sit down to my laptop, and there is a possibility that it will be a three part article. I will attempt to tie the tangents together so you will not leave confused, but perhaps will understand the frustration those with RAD deal with on a regular basis. I am afraid some of this frustration may be self imposed. Continue reading

Training baddog

Those that know me know that Harley-Davidson is one of my greatest passions. If I was put in the situation that I had to give up photography or motorcycles, I would have to drop the camera. It is my therapy, my release, my church. Living in Southern California gives me a riding season of 12 months so when I feel the need to get away from the hassles of everyday life, escape is as close as my garage. There are a couple days a year I like to go riding whether or not I “feel the need” based solely on the fact that there is no traffic. When you live in LA, you have to take advantage of these things. One day is Christmas; the other is Superbowl Sunday.

This past Superbowl Sunday was gorgeous around here. It was close to 80 degrees out and because the Superbowl was starting around 3:30 PM local time, it was a safe bet that this was going to be a great day for a ride. The problem was, Tanya was feeling really wiped out from her Rheumatoid Autoimmune Disease (RAD) and was not feeling up to it. Well, after the guilt I felt being in Las Vegas last month, you might imagine that I was a little hesitant just going off and having a good time without her. I am just not wired that way. To her credit, a couple hours later she said she would like to go for a ride, but she only felt capable of going out for a few minutes. That was not really what I had in mind. Continue reading

Must Love Dog

I have become aware that I have a lot of new readers, so I will have to stop presuming that you know anything about me. Well, I am a dog person. Naturally, there are cats that I can and have appreciated, but push comes to shove, dogs win every time. I have Buddy. Buddy is a comfort dog and has traveled with me all over the country. He even went to Joplin to offer support to the victims of their tornado strike in 2011. I do not think you will find anyone that could suggest that I am not a fan of dogs. The thing is, not all dogs are equal. Unless you are very lucky, it takes a lot of work to end up with a dog like Buddy.
