Headed to doctor. For some reason I can't sleep. The kids are keeping me up and then I can't even take a nap. I believe I have a kidney stone (god, I hope not!) and I have immense pain on my left side and frequent urination so the nurse over the phone said that could be causing my inability to sleep also.

Dude, my eyes are bloodshot and I can't focus on anything. It has been an interesting 2 weeks or so of being sick and miserable. haha...

On the good front, we finally broke ground on our subdivision so things are moving swimmingly there! Oh, and bought a few cheap rental homes as well. So outside of my health life is good so I will stop complaining now... haha..

Maybe you ought to move to a higher TF.

So you can get more rest and more sleep.

Good trade, hit a retrace and then long out of the gates.

Didn't hold my TP and was a bit antsy as it seemed like it was going to come down for another retrace before it went up or just more down for the day. Substantial move down last night, and wasn't sure where it wanted to go.

After market got some momentum it was clearly long, but entries were a challenge and I expected bigger retraces or different targets. This doesn't count towards my total equity because I am below my 3 day moving equity balance. Still under it for tomorrow as well. This will keep me out of the drawdown periods, so I am ok. It is a 3 day step and not a 3 MA like I had referred to earlier.

Nice long!!!

I hope you don't have any stones in your body!!!

I'm glad that everything else is going very well.

Maybe you just need a sleeping peel to relax and have as much sleep as you need.

Isn't it easier for you to trade euro market? You could trade 6E,CL or whatever you like. It's seem like a nightmare to get up at 4am for me. Haha...

Well, for some reason, 4am is a hell of a lot better than 3am. 3am is just too early and I am a zombie.

4am is like a stiff kick-in-the-nuts wake up call where you get a little bit of adrenaline.

No stones, but I guess I tore something very deep inside my body. So I am happy to say that I am not giving birth to a rock anytime soon. Thank god!

Still sucks because it is very painful. haha... Getting old(er).

I jumped off a tree (8ft) the other day showing off for my kid and I either popped a tendon out of my foot or I broke a bone. Still black after 2 weeks, but not enough to stop me from running or doing crossfit.

Amazing how quickly the body degrades. I still feel like I am 21.

Got more sleep, feel a lot better today, but not 100%. Thanks for asking.
