About StandUpRight.ca

Before getting to what this site is, first, what is this site NOT?

This is not a medical site.

I am not a medical professional. Everything you read on these pages is a result of my own personal experiences.

If you suffer serious health issues, before you even consider following my advice, consult a professional. What you read here worked for me, and worked for others, but everyone’s body is unique. What might work for some could cause serious problems for others.

So what is StandUpRight?

It started out as a place where I discuss things related to back pain and posture. But, like all things, it evolved, and will continue to evolve.

What has it evolved into? Along the way, it became a place where I jabbered on about living a healthy lifestyle, rooted in regular, vigorous exercise, a healthy diet, and the emotional connection. These things remain important to me, but there is so much more.

Since I have finally admitted out loud to the world that I struggle daily with severe depression, I have focused my writing on that.

I call the sensation that depression brings down on me, “The grey mist.” Now, as I enter the final third of my life, I will concentrate on this:

Navigating the third act, through the grey mist of depression.
