Doing Yoga with My 87 Year-Old Aunt Is Awesome
Click to watch the clips.   It only gets funnier! I had a fantastic holiday weekend.  I hung out at my aunt's house in Lancaster for four days.  We spend three days lying about, watching TV, and walking the dogs.  We watched a lot of CSI Miami.  I had never...

Because Scleroderma Wasn't Scary Enough...
Look, by no means and I saying that stand up comedy is more life threatening  than scleroderma.  What I am saying is that getting up in front of an audience and telling stories is frightening. I have faced the possibility of death more times than I can coun...

Nice quote, Karen.  :)  And I agree.

The New Adventures of Old Scleroderma
The more things change, the more familiar it feels... February and March this far have gotten off to a great start.  I am still in good health (besides the scleroderma and sarcoidosis), and I am preparing for a stand up comedy show.  That's right; stand-up ...

Yes.  Please have it with strippers.  I think Betty would like it that way.

Back To The Beginning, Again. An update about my exercise activity with scleroderma.
This a follow up to a post I wrote in 2012.  I almost started rising typos, but realized what it really needed,  was an update.  I have sarcoidosis in addition to scleroderma, but sarcoidosis is contained with medication.  There was a great deal of damage d...

Phylis Schlafly, Thanks for Nothing!
Phyllis Schlafly wrote an opinion piece published Tuesday and I found it very upsetting.  I am not sure how to explain my reasons, except by sharing a story about a young woman who worked long hours in a dirty shipyard. Not such a long, long time ago... In ...

Do you think that may have contributed to you getting scleroderma?

#BanBossy Can One Word Really Make A Difference?
When it comes to language, I am not a fan of banning anything.  Yet here I am at 3:30am, wide awake and writing about the #BanBossy campaign.   I don't disagree that #BanBossy is part of a marketing campaign for the book Lean In, but as far as getting peopl...

Hope Is Afoot.
Every time I think of things being "afoot", I think of the movie, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.  I also just started watching House of Cards, and I have compulsion to editorialize what's going on to an imaginary camera.  Both events are most likely sy...

Harold Ramis Died Today. Here's Why This Matters To Me.
Early Monday morning, we lost one of the greats.  I grew up in the 80's.  I spent many days after school and during my summers watching movies by Harold Ramis.  I had a major crush on him and Bill Murray in Stripes.  My dad once told me when he heard I was ...

Go Up The Chain of Command; or In Plain English: Talk to That Person's Supervisor.
 I have had similar experiences when on private insurance.  Don't limit what works in my posts to me.  We all have struggles, just different names for them.   So, not at vet or no scleroderma; just replace "chain of command", with "supervisors from the bott...

Story
Tagline
Adapt, Overcome, Laugh, Rinse, Repeat. Not necessarily in that order.
Introduction
I write this blog to share my experiences and if anyone can learn something from my failures or successes, cool.  I am not a doctor, but I could play one on TV. Bring your sense of humor and irreverence.  No topic is "sacred".   I write about whatever inspires me, pisses me off or makes me laugh.  

My hands are severely damaged from scleroderma, so there will by typos.   Just go with it. 

Turtle is much easier to spell than scleroderma or sarcoidosis.  The original name of my blog was Scleroderma, Sarcoidosis and Box Wine.  No one could remember the name.  I thought The Mighty Turtle just sounded cool.  It doesn't mean anything, but turtles did adapt to out live the dinosaurs, so there's that.
