Ketamine Friday underway. I’m seeing triple. Makes typing like a video game. First Zofran (avoid med-related nausea). Versed (anti-hallucinatory). Oxygen. Ketamine. The infusion gets you high. Brings you back. Wheelchair to car. Husbands picks up food to end overnight fast. Home to sleep for a few days. Repeat in 36 to 42 days.

Khaleesi of pop culture. Budding gardener. Punny. True Cancer Crab. Fibro warrior since Winter 2018. So much more than a paragraph can sum up: aren't we all? I turned 40 in 2018 and my life as I know it is over. Or, I’m literally 40+. My viewpoint depends on the day. Welcome to 40 & Over. Some of 40 & Over’s imagery and general mood comes from these lyrics: “I’ve got my ticket for the long way ‘round/The one with the prettiest of views/It’s got mountains, it’s got rivers, it’s got sights to give you shivers/But it sure would be prettier with you” -Anna Kendrick’s Cups/When I’m Gone, from “Pitch Perfect,” which piggybacks on a folk song from the 1930s.
