About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Personal pain update and new sky pictures

A year ago, I gave this update on the so-far horrible year of 2021. Since then, an antidepressant (well, two, as the first one had a side effect I just couldn't get past) has turned things around. That included helping me get totally off Oxy. 

I was still on the maximum dose of the medicine for nerve pain (first Gabapentin, then Pregabalin). But about a month ago, I moved that dose down a bit. It was kinda rough for a few days (I had been on the max dose for over a year-and-a-half) and the pain is a bit worse, but overall worth it.

With that said (and we continue to plug away at the book), here are two recent pictures:
