Hi. Welcome to my website!  Honestly, I do not try to share this website with anyone, but I don’t try and hide it either. It’s more a less a place that I use to vent personal grievances or just sort out my thoughts on subjects that interest me – like any other blog.

I started the website on an outdated notion (spurring from the dot com boom) that we had to protect our names. I watched people snatch up hundreds of the best domain names, and yet I didn’t capitalize on it. Maybe if I’m lucky, some other Greg Percifield in the world will become rich and famous and they can then buy my domain for a hefty price.

If you’d like to know a bit more about me, here is an extended bio.

Pass Cookie In Hidden Field Of Ninja Forms Using WordPress

As robust as Ninja Forms is, there does not seem to be a user-friendly way of passing cookie data in a field. Although it has been suggested to their dev team based on the comments here. Don't worry! The solution is not difficult.  I am going to assume you have...

I Successfully Tapered Off Of Klonopin

I Successfully Tapered Off Of Klonopin

The following is taken from my personal Facebook post: This will be the last time I post about this. I did it. I successfully tapered off of Klonopin, A psychotropic medicine that I was prescribed 27 years ago. I had tried so many times over the years to quit without...

Day 122 of Benzo Withdrawal

Day 122 of Benzo Withdrawal

In about 20 more days, I will be finished with my micro-tapering process. That will not heal me, but I do believe it will provide a positive mental shift. Already the amount of medicine (I mean poison) that I take is so small that it probably has no effect other than...

Day 115 of Benzo Withdrawal

Day 115 of Benzo Withdrawal

My outlook has changed pretty significantly since I last wrote. Even the title of this feels wrong. It’s not “withdrawal” that is causing these symptoms. It’s damage to the GABA receptors. I know that mine are healing. And as they do, the symptoms become less severe....

Day 104 of Benzo Withdrawal

Day 104 of Benzo Withdrawal

Symptoms have been bothering me the last five days. Again, nothing as severe as they used to be. But it’s taking a toll nonetheless. Especially the insomnia. Last night, I think I only got about 3 1/2 hours of sleep. Today there is a lot of pressure in my face. I can...

Day 96 Of Benzo Withdrawal

Day 96 Of Benzo Withdrawal

Finally! I feel like today will be my day of relief. I slept well last night. It’s the first time I have slept through the night in a while without nagging withdrawal symptoms. I woke up at 6 AM (earlier than I normally would) but that’s OK. When I woke up, I did not...

Day 94 Of Benzo Withdrawal

Day 94 Of Benzo Withdrawal

Thank God for this diary. Sometimes writing is the only release I can find. I’m hoping that at this moment, it will prove to be just that. I had a series of good days. I think four or five days went by that I was feeling pretty good. About half of the day yesterday...

Day 86 Of Benzo Withdrawal

Day 86 Of Benzo Withdrawal

I feel like it has been a difficult two weeks. I hadn’t been taking any notes, so I’m not sure if it has been more difficult or less difficult than previous weeks. All I know for certain, is that I did not have very many “window“ days or even times. Actually, the...

Day 83 Of Benzo Withdrawal

Day 83 Of Benzo Withdrawal

First off, let’s address the number 83. Normally when people talk about withdrawal, they probably think a week or two. It’s a common timeframe for alcohol and opioid addiction. In these cases, people can enter a detox facility in rapidly expel the drug from their...

The Mad Science Of Cutting Pills

The Mad Science Of Cutting Pills

Tapering can be tricky when the science comes down to a milligram of how much medicine you take. Several months ago, I used to just eye it. I'd look at the pill and cut it in half. With the larger dosage when I first started my tapering, maybe that was more...

Practicing and Performing With Jam Tracks

Practicing and Performing With Jam Tracks

Wow...I feel like I have really missed the boat on this one. My professional musician friends have been using these forever... In my own live performances and at home, I have been wondering what I can do to provide a better sound. Jam Tracks are the answer I had...

吉本超合金ファックブラザーズ

My stay in Japan was strange, indeed.  When I first arrived in Japan in 1995, I was immediately presented with media opportunities, simply for being a "gaijin" (foreigner).  I was in print magazines, table mats at family restaurants, even a sporting catalog despite my...

Why Recovery Feels So Remarkable

Why Recovery Feels So Remarkable

I have a friend who has a chronic pain disease. She has kidney stones and passes them every time she has to pee.  I’ve never had kidney stones myself. But I know people that have, and they all say the pain is excruciating. My friend who has the chronic pain disease,...

First Natural Sleep In Years

First Natural Sleep In Years

Last night was my second night of natural sleep in quite a while. This means it was not induced by Klonopin, Melatonin, Xanax, Ambien, hydroxyzine, nighttime cold medicine, or red wine. The last 27 years of my life ended with one of those or a combination of several...

One Bad Apple

One Bad Apple

When I first moved to Japan, I joined an art class.  I only stayed for 1 class before it became unbearable for me. At the time, I was only 22 years old.  There were about 10 other people in the class.  They were elderly Japanese women.  The art teacher was an elderly...

Was Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner Brave?

Was Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner Brave?

The other day, I came across a friend's Facebook post, in which he was arguing with someone about the courage of Caitlyn Jenner.  What is courage?  Was coming out courageous?  There was strong opposition to the idea that it was a courageous act.  One person even said,...

How To Play: Only The Good Die Young (Intro)

Playing the Intro of Only The Good Die Young, might sound a lot harder than it really is.  But if you break it down, it's a piece of cake! To play this song you should know four triad chords: F Major - F, A, C G Major - G, B, D A Minor - A,...
