1) If I'm feeling intellectual about it, write.

2) If I'm not, and have lots of time, take a long bike ride.

3) If I'm pressed for time, run a few miles at a pace that makes me good and tired.

4) Otherwise, punt.

I HTFU. I know that I am only given the things that I can handle and somehow I make it through. Life experiences have proven that so far.

That and 600 mg of prescription ibuprofen can take you places.

Oh, and lots of caffeine.

You mean you actually use your little ring? I had mine removed; never use the thing, and too much extra weight.

I heard that the other day, I was in the hospital and was about to leave as I was feeling kinda fed up with the whole thing, when a nurse walked over and told me this," "He" would never give you anything that you couldn't handle." I stayed.
