happy anniversary


when this blog is posted i will be soon getting on a plane from
managua nicaragua to the usa
i wrote this blog today august 7 2012 as its the anniversary
day of this blog

two years ago i had been outside working on the country n
it was hot so i stopped and came inside
my wife she said i want you to watch this video i taped about
this lady that started a blog and was successful with it
she has over a million followers
she began writing about her daily life as she was going through
some rough times in her life
for her it was therapeutic
i now understand this
the more she wrote the more people loved her blogs
my wife she said you should do that

i told her that i had always wanted to write a blog
about organic gardening organic green living and about being a doctor
so that day i got on google got a domain and started this blog

it seemed so innocent when i started
i didnt know that within three months my life would change forever
heck i even wrote blogs about alzheimers and mild cognitive impairment
but little did i know that those diagnosis  would be tagged on me
and i would have to discontinue practicing medicine

i added alzheimers as one of my focuses of this blog but still write
about other things like organic gardening green living and other
interesting things  i see or read and of course duct tape

i have met a large number of people over this blog
many follow it for the green stuff and others for the alzheimers stuff
i feel like i have been able to educate people about this disease
since i am in one of the major studies looking at alzheimers called
the adni study and had been a practicing physician

i answer questions frequently via email this blog and facebook and

several people after reading this blog have been evaluated and found
to have the disease
while others have luckily been found not to have the disease
we all worry about getting it you know

several people have entered studies after reading this blog
thats one of the goals of this blog encouragement and education
about alzheimers

my blog entry that is the hardest to read is the last day thanks blog
i was asked to read it for the video thats at the top of my blog and
have been asked to read it aloud to groups but i still cant do it

the alzheimers bent to this blog has been the most important thing
that has happen to it over the last 2 years

but i have kept it not all about alzheimers though

total page views 106276
