Passive Solar Collection

Who would have thought 30 minutes of sun a day could make such a dramatic difference? 3 weeks ago I hadn't slept through a night, been to bed before 5 o'clock in the morning, had any energy, or felt anything other than hungover for months. I think my brain had actually slowed to a crawl.

After 1 week of 30 minutes of sun every morning and the help of a CPAP machine, I now get up without any real problem at 7 a.m. every morning and I'm at work before 9. I have tons of energy, I've started exercising again and I'm starting to feel like I did before I was diagnosed with cancer.

Yesterday I got a postcard in the mail that had two obese men in speedos on the front laying out in the sun. It was titled "Passive Solar Collectors". My mom saw it at a stationary store and thought of me. Thanks for the mostly naked fat men mom... :-)

That is hysterical! Congrats on feeling better. When you've been in the fog, there is nothing like feeling good again!
