A little less than a happy high
There's got to be a better way
I have class tonight, but must confess that today has left me so drained that I'm not sure I want to go. I'm tired and irritable and my eyes and hands and back hurt from the Information Ministry work* I've been doing all frickin' day.

I don't mind hard work, but this goes beyond that. I've been walking away from the office feeling used up. Nothing good can come of that.

*On redacting: Thanks to the latest interpretation of HIPAA requirements, all material being released to the press now looks a lot like reports released by the FBI. It's amazing how many pages I can go before something more significant than a series of "and"s finds it's way past blacking out.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted

It's no wonder people look hopelessly frayed by the time they hit 50.

That Icon!

Is that you throwing that piece? Cool!

And I know what you mean about the HIPPA. I have a client that lives in an apartment complex and I had to ask about the parking regulations, but I wasn't allowed to say who I was visiting or even her apartment number. It was a farce.

Re: That Icon!

Sadly no. Eventually, it will be replaced by a depiction of my own hands, but I need to get someone to come into the studio with me to get the shot.

1. Pinch pinky tip, hold till you feel a shift.
2. One finger press the top of your center and one finger the center of your chest, hold until you feel a shift.
3. Walking outside, breathe deep with each step.
4. Hug a tree in the Common, ask it to free you from what is sapping your energy. Say thank you.
5. Go have a great class, it will invigorate you. Eyes open or closed. *wink

The end.

HIPAA sucks.

That is all.

I agree. My precessor had a cakewalk in comparison.

Incidentally, one of the curious side-effects of HIPAA is that data about the types of injuries being incurred in Iraq appear to be protected by the act.
