When I get healthy, I’m going to…

If you are like me, you’ve been stockpiling things you’ll do someday but can’t because you’re not well enough.  It’s time for me to make a list, right now, right here:

Big things

  1. vacation with my family in Spain
  2. visit my brother and his family in Texas
  3. take my family camping
  4. take intro snowboarding class
  5. take the train from Denver to Glenwood Springs for a weekend
  6. take family sailing somewhere tropical
  7. go surfing
  8. go fly fishing
  9. spend some time on the beach at North Captiva

Little big things

  1. go for a jog
  2. go for a swim
  3. hike barefoot all the way to the top of Mount Sanitas with Evan
  4. take the family out dancing, maybe to a summer concert
  5. take a weekend road trip
  6. take the girls fishing

What did you do when you recovered or what will you do when your cover?

    Love it! Great list. I’ve been thinking I should put my list into writing as well… I continue to salivate for the day I can return to bikram and vinyasa yoga, hiking, biking, camping, traveling, and enjoying an occasional meal in a restaurant…

"...nothing ever goes away
until it has taught us
what we need to know.
-Pema Chodron

"God, whose law it is that all who learn must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God."


My name is Eric - I‘m 49 and saw a doctor for fatigue at 17. I lived fairly normally if a little subdued by lack of endurance at times. But then, in 2002 I fell into a nosedive after moving to South Florida. Now, I know heavy metal toxicity is a significant source of my troubles along with genetic methylation cycle dysfunction and Lyme disease. I spent 18 months chelating the metals out and starting up methylation but stopped when I felt myself circling the drain. Currently going after Lyme and co-infections. More about me here.
