Having a nice walk down memory lane – my frosty seat in Yellowstone, 2005
Hello, from foggy Long Island.
For the past few months I’ve followed up with doctors on some nagging issues. Yesterday, my blood work pointed out that I have a serious vitamin D deficiency. I always knew working in an office was bad for me.
One of the symptoms of vitamin D deficiency is a “down-in-the-dumps” mood. Unfortunately this is something I’ve dealt with for what seems like my whole adult life. I am often… prickly, shall we say? So me feeling out of whack hasn’t been a shock or anything. It has come and gone in cycles for as long as I can remember. But, over the last year there have been some exceptionally dark moments, maybe my low-D isn’t helping.
So, I’ve got my fingers crossed for a mild winter. Can I take in a bunch of vitamin D through my faceshield? I think wind therapy could help my case. I’ll be stuffing my gob full of vitamins and hoping for brighter days.
I’ve gotta bring my own sunshine.
At the time, this 2005 scorched yellow Triumph Speed Triple was my main squeeze, my do it all bike. Though it was a little tight on space, traveling on it wasn’t really that much of a hardship because it was all fun, all the time. Just look at that huge tankbag!
This was taken in New Hampshire on my way to Mount Washington.
Rest easy, old girl.
