      Welcome back, Carrot
      Hope you help bring some life to this thread and that RL has been kind to you.

      Rant: I AM SO STINKING SLEEPY TODAY. Gah! I've not taken any caffeine for a few days now (caffeine and periods don't mix- it increases cramping), but I'll probably have to risk it. Hubby might want to go out to eat tonight and it would be nice if I was conscious for it

      Rave: This makes me happy to a ridiculous level. I've had 4 unread messages in my email for YEARS. I've never been patient enough to search through my thousands of mail to find it. Today, I found the search option and saw I could refine it. My inbox is now CLEAN 2 of the messages were from 2011 No wonder I couldn't find them lol

      I have a bit of a headache today, but nothing else. I binged the last, most recent, 4 episodes of The Expanse. I forgot how much I love that show. I really wish there weren't such long hiatuses. I forget so much between seasons.

      Now, I'll probably work on my zombie game some. I need to finish getting my farm up and running... Then again, there's only 30 minutes til I talk to hubby. I'll probably get on YouTube instead...

      Oh noes, not the Cheetoes
      Seriously, I've done that before and it sucks. I've left things at the store before, dropped things in the parking lot or from the walk from the car to the house... the puppy has also stolen more than his fair share of treats.
      Now-a-days, I usually check his sash spots and then the yard.

      Rant: Headache. Again. I seem to keep the friggin things and it's extra annoying. It's only about a 3 on the pain scale- but when you keep a 3 for several days in a row, it starts to wear you down and feel worse than it actually is.
      I never took that caffeine yesterday. I'm taking that sucker today though. WITH 2 Tylenol and 2 Ibuprofen's. I'm going to knock this pain in the head out one way or another.

      Rant: I slept like crap for the second day in a row. It's probably the Benadryl I've been taking at bedtime for the Vertigo. I've had dozens upon dozens of dreams these last couple nights... but as soon as I get emotionally invested in the dream, I wake up for 2 seconds which kills the dream and starts another... repeat for 6-8 hours
      I'm going to look for ear drops tomorrow. If it's just excessive fluid, maybe something else can dry it up without killing my sleep. My allergies haven't been a problem otherwise (if that's what it even is). well, other than some sinus congestion which I keep (but maybe that's what's triggering the headaches... but shouldn't Benadryl take care of that too?).

      Blah.

      Rave: My son came back earlier "Guess what I heard?!" He was watching a game play video and the guy said "great googally moogally!" My son just knew he had to remember to tell me
      I told him, when he finds someone else who uses "tartar sauce" as a swear word, to let me know that too and then my life will be complete
      Yeah, my kids tv shows had a bigger impact on me and my vocabulary than it did them lol

      Rave: I found a show called "the Mist" on Netflix. I kept telling myself I MUST have watched it because it is just way too familiar. Then I saw it was based on a Stephen King book. I've read most of his stuff so that must be it. I'm loving it so far. It must have been a very long time ago that I read the book, because I don't know what to expect.

      Hope everyone is well

      Rant: I'm awake. I stayed up all night and the following day and didn't get to sleep until nearly 1:30... then was awake at 6:30 (5 hours later). I was hoping to actually pass out and get good rest. Nope. Still tossed and turned and I didn't even take a Benadryl

      Rant: My drawers are all cleaned and organized now.... but the rest of my room is so messy that the dogs can't even both be in here (and I can't walk to my bed with one in here because I have to move boxes out of the way.
      Looks like I can clean OR organize but not have both at the same time

      Rant: Our internet keep crapping out still. Hubby even refreshed the modem and routers on his end and both he and I (who plug in directly) keep having interruptions. Forget wi-fi. I can't even get on my iPad for 5 minutes before I have to turn it off (in settings) then back on.
      I have a Dr. appointment this afternoon, so I'll probably drive to the internet people and ask them to test the line or something.

      Rant: I had a shower yesterday but need another one. My scalp is already breaking out. I have a sore that I want to pick SOOOOOO badly, but I want the Dr. to see it.

      Meh.

      Meh. Dr. appointments went well enough.
      I mentioned that I wanted to talk about cardio tests because of the increased palpitations and he hooked me right up with an EKG and Echo. EKG was normal but the Echo person was gone for the day so I had to return today for that. The Echo was normal too, but I'm almost certain he said something about "leaky valves". I'll have to ask more about that next month when I see him about my knee.

      He saw the sore on my scalp and said it might look a little infected so he gave me meds for it and told me to leave it alone. As soon as he left the room, I scratched it off It had taken considerable willpower to ignore it as long as I had.
      But then the nurse came in and said they needed to shave a little bit of my head "to remove the cyst." Oops. I thought the Dr was speaking in generals. It saved me from a bald spot though
      It's curious they used the word cyst though. Are pimples a type of cyst?
      I googled a bunch of stuff last night but I was so out of it I don't really remember what I read.

      Today, after the Echo, I asked him about my vertigo. I told him I USED to have positional hypotension and low blood pressure but that's no longer the case. He wanted to make sure and tested me. It is, indeed, no longer an issue. Then I mentioned my allergies and inquired about my ears so he looked and commented that they were "very bright" My ears are completely clean and clear so he's setting me up with someone to look into ??? a disease where you have a hole in your innermost ear.

      I've looked into that (Dr. Google), in the past, and it didn't really seem to apply. Who knows.

      Rant: Other than all of that, I woke with a severe kink in my back between my shoulder blades I need to get one of those foamy mattress top cushion things. I think sleeping on my side all the time is doing me in.

      Oh yeah... I also went to the internet people and they said they no longer do that- customers do it themselves from home. You just have to plug in directly to the modem. Which is an impossible task because hubby's machine is cordless and mine is too much of a beast to move. She said we might be "losing signal" and have to have tech come out.... which is next to impossible with hubby's schedule.

      **EDIT**
      153/89 101 That's my current BP after a scare.
      I was taking the dogs out for the last time before going to bed. I use my old cell phone as my flashlight but I couldn't find it anywhere. No biggie. There's only a couple places it could be. I take them out then look for it. Couldn't find it anywhere.
      I started to panic. My cell phone is in a wallet case which holds my pre-paid credit card, my ID, insurance info, SS card, appointments, you name it. If it's important, it's in there.
      I was so panicked I was in tears. 2:30AM and I drive to Walmart to check lost and found. Nothing. I was feeling dejected. I've turned in countless wallets, purses, and cash over the years but no one would turn in mine? Then I scolded myself for my self-centeredness but felt no better.

      I came home and looked some more. And there it was, in an unused drawer
      And now I'm too high strung to sleep.
      But THANK GOODNESS I found it. Now to figure out what to do from here. I need to take pics of everything, lock my phone, take certain items out (but then I'll really lose them).
      My back is still no better either :/

      Come on y'all! I'm starting to feel self-conscious.

      Rant/Rave: this back pain. I recalled last night that I had previously concluded it's a pulled muscle. It wasn't any better today and I slept like crap because of it. Then I remembered tylenol and ibuprofen today
      I take my scripts and vitamins every day. I take pain killers for headaches and the likes but very sparingly. Probably because I don't eat a LOT (quantity) and they wreck my stomach if I'm not careful. I finally took some today though and it brought the pain from an 8 to a 3.
      I'll have to start drinking an Ensure before bed and take them then.

      Rant: The sores on my scalp are migrating to the back of my neck I blame perimenopause and changing skin types. I used to have perfectly balanced skin. Now, I think, it's more oily. Which means I need to research hygiene. For 40 years I was used to a certain thing and now my body's changed the rules on me I guess I have to suck it up and adapt and shower every day (before, doing so would severely dry my skin out).
      Blah. I don't like change lol.

      Rave: fish night Our favorite restaurant is serving potato crusted cod and veggies. I've also been craving veggies lately so that's a win on both fronts

      On Friday, after my allergy shot, hubby looking at lawn mowers some more. That evening, we went out and bought a Husqvarna riding mower.
      Yesterday, I spent 3.2 hours mowing, during the hottest part of the day lol (it was calling for rain).

      I've not mowed for 15+ years. It was easy to handle, but I am sore today (oddly enough, my lowermost stomach muscles are sore).
      The guy who mows for us, came out to chat a while and he looked to me and said "You'll be putting me out of a job.... and I don't care."
      Then he gave me a tip on cutting directions (hubby started it and worked in a box shape to outline where I should mow- I continued working within the box but the neighbor said straight lines are easier).
      Hubby had some sun screen lotion that was so old I didn't know how well it would work (it came out like water and not like lotion lol). But, I'm not burned at all.

      Rave: I figured out how to pop my upper back. I just hang my upper back/body off the side of my bed, and my back pops between those shoulder blades. The muscle is still pulled and sore, but it's on the mends. For some reason, though, my lower back was killing me so much yesterday that I could hardly walk. It's much improved today too.

      Rave: Because of my skin and scalp sores, hubby gave me some expired surgical soap (3.3% Chloroxylenol) to try. It doesn't foam quite as much as traditional soap, so I was doubtful it would work. And when I got out of the shower, I felt extra dried out. But good googally, once I dried off, I've never felt better. I just want to pet myself My skin is smooth and my hair is extra soft.

      Rant: Hubby just told me, though, to use it sparingly because it's very expensive
      I'll be looking on-line. It is THAT amazing.

      I am in agonizing pain. If it continues, at this degree, for any length of time I will start praying for death.
      I'm about to OD on Valium (not really. I just REALLY hate taking ANY Valium and more than 1/4 is too much for my liking).
      I took the standard pain meds mixed with caffeine to boost it. Took that 1/4 of Valium and now I dug out my heating pad
      What the friggin heck, Back? My pulled shoulder muscle got better. My lower back pain subsided for a bit then returned with a vengeance.
      I've had x-rays and an MRI in the past which turned up absolutely nothing (well, some slight disc wear, but nothing to warrant this pain).
      If it's to this degree tomorrow, I'll see a Dr. If nothing else, perhaps they can prescribe some better meds. Is there such a thing as a muscle relaxer that DOESN'T cause excessive sleepiness?
      I have stuff I want to do.
      I can't even dull the pain through gaming (I can often-times distract my brain from pain- but this is just too much).

      Rave-ish: I'm playing Stardew Valley again. I'm enjoying it but boy is it grindy. And I don't typically mind grindy games so that's saying something I guess it wouldn't be so bad if I wasn't forced to sleep every day

      Hello, it's me. I was wondering if after all these posts you could create. Anything. For me to read...........

      Meh.
      That's it for my week's worth of creativity

      RANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My iPad is on it's deathbed. The LCD is shot. It can't be turned on for more than a few seconds at a time before it just appears to shut off

      Rave: Hubby's getting me a new one, but I might have to go into partial debt to cover some of it (depending on how generous he's feeling lol. I want an iPad Pro with a large memory).... it could also take a while. He likes waiting for the latest and greatest. I'm more about instant gratification. I use my iPad every single day. Waiting until Apple releases something new in the Fall is just way too long.

      RANT!!! My back still hurts. I saw the Dr. today and he wrote it off (after talking to me for 3 minutes) as arthritis. He prescribed some sort of pain patch but Walmart didn't have it in stock so I have to wait until tomorrow. Pain relief is pain relief, and if it helps, I'll be happy.
      But I would prefer to KNOW what the heck is going on with my friggin back.

      1) My soon-to-be-arriving period will trigger it. 2) Having an orgasm will trigger it. 3) stress *can* or seems to contribute to triggering it.
      4) Drugs like Prozac and Cymbalta help (until they don't. Prozac then Celexa worked for nearly 8 years in keeping me 90% pain free)
      5) X-rays, MRI's, PAP smears have revealed nothing overly suspicious. 6) I have a fairly high pain tolerance. If I say I'm in too much pain to even enjoy video games, SOMETHING is not right. If I break down and see a doctor for pain, SOMETHING is not right.

      Rave: But, the pain is not as bad as it was yesterday. It's too bad for me to clean or do laundry or take the dogs out, but I'm no longer thinking of death. (For clarification, I don't think "This pain is so terrible right now, I'm just going to kill myself." Instead, I think: "If I have to live with the pain every day for the rest of my life, I would much rather die.")

      Humorous: Me walking to go to the Dr and Walmart. My knee hurts, so I limp. My back hurts, so I hunch over. But I can't stand moving slowly, so I speed-hobbled to my destinations- wincing because I'm in pain, then smiling at people because I don't like to show that I'm in pain

      Rant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcg6cLauF3w&t=33s
      I binged that song so much yesterday (and I woke up humming it today) that my throat hurts today (Yeah, I have to hum or sing along).
      I can't remember the last time I binged a song so much. Even after watching it off and on all day, it gave my goosebumps each and every time.

      RAVE!!!!!!! My back pain (so far) is, maybe, a 2 when I move and a 0 when I don't.

      Rant: The Dr. prescribed Flector. $222.44 AFTER insurance. Flector is just an NSAID. I did NOT pick up the script.
      My mom and dad swear by the patches though (I asked FB for testimonials). I'm not convinced though.

      Huh, seems I didn't tell y'all that another cat showed up. It's a c. 3 month old female (*sigh*) Siamese. One of the kids were in the yard and our cat Pasley was trying to rape her, so the kitten ran to my kid to be rescued. What the heck is wrong with our cat? It acts that way with every young cat (mounting behavior- pinning it down, biting the neck, humping without penetration and possibly with). I still say he's just asserting dominance. After this "hazing", the cats seem to get along just fine. But out of the hundreds of cats we've had, I never recall one that was this persistent and determined.
      The Siamese is almost the spitting image of one of the new kittens. There must be a Tom out running around with Siamese in him, but I've never seen him.

      RANT- These friggin flies. Bot flies are everywhere because of the cat that died in our AC vents during the Winter. Houseflies are everywhere because, well, 'tis the season. THANKFULLY, there have been no biting flies yet.
