Lisa's Friday Reviews

No automatic alt text available.


Well, the end-of-summer count down is officially up and running. School in my district begins August 24 for students and my own son is scrambling to complete summer projects that this goody two shoes would have taken care of as soon as school adjourned in June. But,that has always been my downfall: Don't put off until tomorrow what I can accomplish today. If I search deeply into my teenage memories maybe that was not always the case with me. Maybe age and experience has created this task master alter ego. Maybe extensive reading has taught me the importance of time management. What ever it is, that is me.

No matter how you spend your time, though, I hope that reading is part of it.

Sometimes a story takes us by surprise. Sometimes what we learn from the author's words will blow your mind. Sometimes we are not aware that our heart and mind are in trouble. Sometimes we just need to be reassured. 
Meet author Priya Kumar. She has checked off all those boxes in my life with The Wiseman Said.



In The Wiseman Said, author Priya Kumar is presented with a warning from her publisher to get back on track and reach her deadline… or else.  But her creative well has run dry and she faces a future of uncertainty. Her professional life has come to a devastating stand still. How can she be productive when purpose eludes her?  From her public, purpose is evident in the eyes of those who excitedly request a fan picture with her or a few words of encouragement personalized with her presence. This is all she ever dreamed to equal a fulfilling and successful life.  So why is she so empty? In a moment of desperation, Priya takes a time-wasting walk to encounter a strange old man who revels her with his presence and leaves her with his life-journey in an aged journal. The written words of The Wanderer occupy her for many hours after her return to her cabin, leaving her with a sense of well-being and a refreshing outlook on life.

“The path may come to an end but that doesn’t have to be the end of the journey.” Priya Kumar’s own words reflect the vast amount of knowledge shared in The Wiseman Said. A book narrated by the enlightening journey and words in the diary of The Wanderer, this is at first glance an easy read, but demands a second sitting as the weight of the lessons presented here far exceed the number of published pages. The Wiseman Said is a surprising guide book to the meaning of life.


Enjoy your weekend!

BORED? ARE YOU A COUCH POTATO?

Bored? Are you a couch potato?

If you are already prone to this malady, the following information may be dangerous in encouraging this behavior. This writer is not responsible for damages done.

As a result of today's blog topic,  my personal couch potato activities are responsible for the lack of yesterday's post. In an attempt to justify my actions, I blame Netflix (in the name of research).

 The best way to prove a fact is to test it, right? Yesterday I definitely put Netflix to the test by watching hours of Safe, a one-season Harlon Coben creation that whetted my love for crime/mystery/action-based entertainment. Harlon Coben is an American author whose work I have enjoyed immensely over the years,  discovering Safe as Coben's break out into film became that much sweeter when The Five caught my attention another series of his own. I will finish The Five today (unless some saves me) so that I can further investigate Coben with viewings of The Stranger. I might take a break …

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.  

I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble.

I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a day for th…

...Warriors are their own physician. So,Warrior, heal thyself!



Ten days since I mailed in my request appeal for coverage in acquiring L300 GO. Nine days since starting my latest journey with CBD oil. Since then I have received confirmation that my appeal is being reviewed AND I have upped my daily oil dosage from 3 drops to 5. The biggest change I've observed is that I'm in a much better mood, so maybe Zoloft will be the first med I can eliminate from my personal pharmacy. Will keep ya posted.

Thinking positive about both ventures, but content with the outcome no matter what. I am NOT in control of my destiny and the man upstairs knows my needs, so it rests in His hands; but, I've got a brain and as long as that brain is functioning I'll continue to search for relief. And that's okay. I am grateful for the opportunity to continue fighting the MonSter by whatever means I am given.

In fact I'm already checking out my next chapter in fighting this 
bugger.
