(DIARY: Health update. Seems that I’ve made incremental progress again over the last month. Blood pressure, heart rate, and levels are all pretty much back to normal. Although I need to start working on strength now. And while I’m up to 192 lbs, I feel good for the first time in a year or two. I also feel I can enter the ‘flow’ more easily. I’m getting better free association results. And am getting bouts of energy and hints of interest in moving the business side as well as the philosophy side of my life. So while I am not fit and ready yet, I’m still getting better. Now, I actually don’t know how long it has taken me to recover from burnout and illness before. It’s hard to remember. I know that in 2012 it took me the better part of 18 months. I have no idea how long cancer in 2002 took. Since I stayed with it until 09 I can’t claim I ever recovered from it. And I know that in 97, after the sale of RedTech and that european flu that cost me 30lbs (and killed 200 people over there), it took more than a year and a half. I don’t think I had time to recover between divorce/cancer in 08/09 and 2011/2012. And my memory is too sketchy about the previous deals and illnesses before then. But I am not sure that I had any material illness and recovery problems before ’97. Normal life ups and downs. But nothing of that scale other than that damned ’77 Russian Flu (pandemic).)
