still hating the new site

0

i've been trying to let it grow on me and i'm still not a fan. although, i still prefer the site design from 2004, so maybe i'm just too much of a geezer at this point. back in the day it seemed like this place was a place that everyone who was here got along and it wasn't about who you...

I have done research, and it's been suggested to me by my Psychologist and even my very non-420 friendly husband, however I don't drink and I don't take pain killers except when I absolutely have to. Legality aside, when I was a teenager and smoked it recreationally here and there it didn't have any positive effects so I stopped doing it. I didn't see the point. It simply made me feel sick.

I do not like medication or herbal remedies or anything other than being mindful of my nutrition and hydration.

Don't assume that because someone is not willing to try something that she considers morally questionable on many levels is because she hasn't done the reading. I don't just have migraines, I have a long-term, continuous headache that has migraine like symptoms. Smoking pot won't touch the pain I'm in, nor make me employable in the future or allow me to return to my current career. It's not an option for me. I respect that it works well for other people, however, and encourage people to do whatever it takes to deal with migraines and other headache types and the comorbid conditions that arise from these disorders.

But, personally, I don't take illegal substances... and if they legalized it, I still wouldn't take it because I don't take mood or mind altering substances unless a doctor or my body tell me it's necessary. smile

I know it! And I appreciate it! I just didn't want you to think I was being narrow-minded.

I'll suck a giant demon dick if it will make my head feel better, yo.

If you're considering sleep aids get an actual sleep aid medication. The stuff I'm on is just to counteract a whole bunch of awful side effects other medications I'm on have. I'm on medical leave from work and full time bedrest. Klonopin just keeps me from waking up when my pain gets bad.

Try something over the counter first.

The best suggestions I have for sleeplessness (as a lifelong Insomniac):

SPOILERS! (Click to view)


No caffeine after noon (or at all if you can do it.)
Don't watch TV or use the internet right before bed. All electronics off at least 45 min before you're ready to get into bed.
If you don't fall to sleep within twenty or so minutes of being in bed, get up and go into another room, read or draw... something calming. TV/Internet overstimulates your brain.
Try listening to music, white noise, or binaural beats (search Youtube for the latter)
Don't exercise before bed, but try to do some physical activity daily.
Keep your bedroom as dark as you can stand it.
Take a warm bath or shower before bed to relax you.

Thanks for the support on my set! Very sweet.

I used to have trouble sleeping so I'd take melatonin. It allowed me to fall into a deep sleep. I suggest trying it. I also wake up early now so by midnight I'm normally pretty exhausted haha.

unfortunately, instead of getting better, i've been getting worse. i have an intense headache and congestion, which doesn't sound too bad, but it feels awful. i've almost fallen over a few times today, just from standing up. i've been trying to take it easy, but sometimes i forget to do that when i'm sick. the worst part is, i had...

bad news - my van engine is pretty much doneski.

good news - i was able to get a replacement engine in even better shape for a really good deal.

for those keeping score at home, my birthday was pretty awesome last month. my elusive fantasy is still an elusive fantasy, but it was a lot of fun anyhow!
