Life, the universe, and everything. 

So, let’s see, what’s new? 

Life goes on. I’m still taking the methotrexate, now up to 12.5mg a week. There’s some definite improvement in my skin and arthritis. There is still a long way to go until  the arthritis goes down enough to give me full flexibility again. Patience has been difficult, but I’m doing my best. 

I’m working on some new project ideas. I am trying to learn how to do cross-platform development for Android and Universal Windows Platform to create an app that would be able to work on both with the same code. It’s a bit complicated, mainly in figuring out how to do the separate UI/UX layers for the two different platforms and still use the same common code for the main logic. I’ll figure it out eventually though. 

OK, enough for now. 


My health in a nutshell

So, this is long overdue, an update on my overall health.

Good: I’ve lost 30 pounds (14 kilos) since I’ve been in the Philippines.

Bad:  My psoriasis has developed into psoriatic arthritis.

The pain some days is unbearable.  Some days not so bad.  Currently I’m on methotrexate 12.5 mg / week, which seems to be starting to have some effect. I’m also on dolcet (paracetamol 325mg + tramadol 37.5mg) twice a day for pain management, and Arcoxia 90mg once a day for inflammation management.  The pain never goes away 100% but at least is bearable.

The skin is still a problem, but I’ve been using a topical steroid cream which seems to help somewhat.


Anyway, let’s see how things go in the coming months.  Hopefully it will get better with this new medication regimen.



….and we’re back

A few months ago I let this domain drop.  I figured after several years I would just let it go. To be honest though I missed my vanity domain.  It hadn’t been taken by anyone else, so I re-registered.

So from time to time I’ll be posting my thoughts and musings.
