Better, Stronger, Faster - Vitamins?

Fri, 05/18/2012 - 17:35 -- webmaster

For a long time now I've been taking vitamin supplements. I've always considered them as a sort of insurance. If the stuff I was eating didn't quite give me everything I needed, the pills would fill it out. Or so I thought.

Ever since my late twenties I've been a pretty conscientious eater, and have eaten healthier than most people. But after 17 years as a thoughtful vegetarian, taking vitamins regularly, I ended up with a shortage. A blood test confirmed that I was short of vitamin B12. I hadn't been doing as good a job as I'd thought.

My afternoon in Manch

Mon, 03/26/2012 - 21:13 -- webmaster

In the last few weeks, I've been having really bad cramps in my calves that last for days. I initially figured they were mostly a symptom of the stress I've been dealing with. I've noticed that when I'm around people I tense up, and have only been able to relax completely after a good night's sleep in a room where I'm alone.

I've had lots of people ask me how I got involved in precious metals. Its not the most exciting story, but people seem to like it so here it is.

How it should have started

Back when I was in the army, I once went with a friend to a pawn shop. As he drove, he explained that every paycheck he went and bought one ounce of silver. I don't remember a lot of the details, but I do remember thinking the piece he picked up was interesting, but I really didn't "get it".

Weather and moods

Two days ago I had a gloriously productive day (compared to recent history anyway). I went for a jog, made a great breakfast, and got a lot of work done. But yesterday sucked. It started out OK with another good jog and a nice breakfast, but the rest of the day I was unable to get into gear. Pretty much the entire day was a waste and I was certainly more irritable.

Its been a while since I wrote anything for this blog. Its about time I tried getting in the habit of more frequent postings. Today's post will be a general health update.

The Good News

I recently got entered into the VA health care system, and have been checking things out. I have full coverage (but no dental) so I can afford it.
