    In the air over eastern Canada right now, just met The Shrink and DJ_Chaps yesterday

    Will post more about my trip shortly.

    Among the oddities of this 12-day trip:

    - I injured myself not once, not twice, but THREE separate times on August 3, the first full day of my trip. Two of them were two nasty and dangerous falls on jagged rocks in Newport, RI. Somehow I ran really well and escaped with only minor injuries. It's the first time in my life where I got three separate, unrealted injuries in one day, separated by hours each.

    - Car broke down in Ellsworth, Maine and it was a bitch getting another one.

    - Tried Delta One -- the first class where you have a lie-flat seat -- on the trip there on August 2

    - I really wanted a good lobster dinner, but every attempt to get one ended in some kind of weird fail, until finally I got one on the second-to-last night of the trip

    - I met two PFAers for the first time -- The Shrink and DJ_Chaps, both of whom live in the Halifax area

    Did not have any hotel fail aside from some minor issues. This was probably my first long trip in many years where no hotel fails occurred.

    I'm typing this in the air right now, sitting next to Benjamin who is sharing my internet to play on his iPad.

    Near the end of my trip, a minor version of my anxiety problem returned. It's not terrible yet, but I'm no longer as good as I was 2 weeks ago. It's not clear what caused this. However, I took a Xanax and I am fine in the plane.

    Xanax is the cure for everything anxiety . Glad the trip was good.

    If Xanax didn't have the terrible addiction issues and all of the crap that goes with it, then it would be a miracle drug which could largely cure anxiety and depression.

    Anyway, it's great if used responsibly.

    One of the more demoralizing things about my issues last year was the belief that I'd never be able to fly again. I would see all of these beautiful destinations on TV or the internet, and think, "I'll never be able to go there."

    It really was a freedom opening back up to me to be able to get better and fly again.

    Not quite accurate....Depression can be anxiety related but it's not a given....Benzo's do not not affect deression on their own.

    And there are no addiction issues with benzos unless you self medicate and suffer from occaisional withdrawals

    Yeah true. If the anxiety and depression aren't connected, the Xanax probably won't help much.

    Looking back at last year, it's a close one between which I hated having more, but I got to experience a severe version of both simultaneously. My heart goes out to those dealing with it for decades.

    Second flight taking off now. No nonstop to LA from Halifax.

    Halifax was a great place to visit. I was there in my early 20's so I suppose things have changed in 27 years. Nonetheless I had a great time there.

    I'm over Minnesota right now, soon to be headed over Hibbing.

    Knew a guy in my dorm in 1990 from Hibbing. Smart dude but kinda weird. If I had to guess, I would say he's in a militia somewhere right now. Forgot his last name so I can't look him up.

    He managed to bang a number of good looking women in the dorm, despite being kinda average looking and skinny, so I'll give him props for that.

    wrench, what is Hibbing like?
