      RAWRRRR!!!
      I slept a lot yesterday, so I only napped from 1-3:45AM. Sleep was rough because my leg was itching me to death. I took my Fitbit off to take a shower and I saw welts on my arm. Great, something's been chewing me in my sleep.
      I scrubbed with my Chloroxylol then shortly thereafter, there were welts on my face.


      I went to the Vertigo Dr.... who doesn't specialize in vertigo My general Dr dropped the ball. He sent me to a Sinus Dr. But he and his Resident worked me up all the same. The Vertigo Drs are in the practice with them but not today. They gave me some basic tests and tested my hearing. They said the next recommendation is to the Neuologist (sp). They theorized, though, that the vertigo may actually be from migraines.

      On the drive home, my welts were really bugging me... I went for my allergy shot and hubby's tech told him I had some nasty dermatitis. He agreed. I got my shot then picked up lunch.

      When I got home with hubby's food, he met me at the garage, asking what kind of snake he tripped over
      He killed it and he set it in the driveway for me to see. It was a MUCH smaller rat snake.

      My welts are now driving me mad... despite lots of Cortizone-10.
      Now I'm washing my bedclothes again. Going to take another shower then some Benadryl and crash. But that's still some 2 hours away.
      I never break out like this.

      I ended up going to the ER yesterday because all the walk-in clinics had closed for the day and I psyched myself out too much about my hives. They weren't getting any better (despite Benadryl every 4-6 hours AND Cortisone cream the hives/rash were actually spreading) and then my throat felt sore and a little constricted. My family and friends nagging me didn't help either

      The hospital PA (no DR there either ) thinks the hives are either contact dermatitis or a reaction to bug bites (I have several on my arm and chin). They gave me a shot in my hip and wrote 2 scripts (one allergy, one oral steroids). I actually fell asleep waiting 30 minutes after the shot. The workers were laughing and carrying on, and I woke not knowing where the heck I was or what was going on My throat was bothering me because of good 'ole PND and nothing more.

      I made it to the Pharmacy JUST as they closed up. But they still took my scripts to be processed for today.
      I'm STILL red but not as welty. Hubby gave me some Benadryl anti-itch cream and it has worked miracles.

      Part of me wonders if "stress and trauma" from my 5 foot fall and then having to drive to Morgantown also played a role in the hives. I have nothing to back that up, but I'm curious. I'll be paying close attention to stressors. I've NEVER gotten rashes or anything on my face before so it's very interesting.

      Rave: I LOVE my new pillow.
      Humor? But I sorta feel like a dumby. I'm 44 years old and I never knew that you're supposed to use "pillow protectors" and then a pillow case. I thought pillows only needed one cover

      Rave: My iPad is still working.
      Rant: But Fallout 3 keeps crashing my computer. I even ran the compatibility thingamajig. That helped, for a while, but then it crashed again and I lost my patience with it. My computer just freezes. Ctrl/Alt/Del does nothing when I try to run the task manager to close the game. I have to reboot my PC. So, I started playing Fallout 4... and with a controller even But then, when I try to pick a lock, there's no visual. I unplugged the controller and tried the keyboard, but nope. Still no visual

      For now, though, I'm done troubleshooting everything. I'm going back to sleep...

      Rant: Fallout 4 doesn't work properly either Lockpicking is invisible. I've tried multiple tips but ended up giving up. Now I'm back to 3 until it crashing my machine again

      Rant: I cannot wake up for anything today. I've been trembly, irritable and when I went shopping tonight, my vision wasn't working right (reading was blurry, like I was cross-eyed). I figured it was my sugar, because I'm on oral steroids now. I got home and my BP was perfect (116/76) as was my sugar (104) I have no idea what's going on.
      My period is also several days late.

      Rave: My hives are gone though. It just looks like I have a sunburn now. It feels leathery/scaley. I still have a big case of the itchies- the crook of my elbow, my neck, my under-boobs, the bug bites that are still on my forearm. But it's all tolerable.

      Rant/Humor: I ate skittles and played Animal Crossing Pocket Camp in my sleep today. I got on the game after I woke up and my character was wearing different clothes. My skittles are almost gone.
      This consistent level of extreme sleepiness is not right.

      What ever's going on with me- hives, rashes etc, my blood pressure is loving it even if the rest of me is miserable
      My BP and sugar have consistently been awesome. Even my pulse has been weirdly normal/low. Maybe it was Benadryl and then Zyrtec? I was taking Benadryl every 4-6 hours and I'm now just taking one Zyrtec at bedtime.
      I'm still sleeping a ridiculous amount though. I've not been using my CPAP at all- not until my face completely clears.

      Rant: My stomach's rebelling today. I haven't even fed it much of anything. I ate one of those large things of "Ramen", but not all of it because meh.

      Rant: Night before last, I was going to sleep and saw something on the wall behind me. It looked like a roundish, flat brown bug. I turned on my light and didn't see it, but found another bug. It was long and brown with yellow in the middle (I think), with wings and long antena. I felt like a jerk but I smushed it in a wipe and threw it away. Something's been biting me and I wasn't taking any chances.

      Last night, I saw the same flat brown one. I took some pics of him before sealing him up in a baggie. Of course, the pics didn't turn out because he's too small and the camera isn't good enough.
      At first glance, he looks a lot like a bedbug But that just makes zero sense. I don't go anywhere or stay over at other people's houses. The only thing new to my room are those crafting items that were in an outside shed. I went through them and didn't see anything, but bugs can be pretty stealthy when they want to be.

      Most likely, though, it's just an outside bug. The weather has been VERY rainy and chilly. We have no screens on the windows and the kids leave the windows open (no AC or heat either, so you pretty much have to keep them open). I have a window AC but the side flaps don't seal properly so creepy-crawlies can easily squeeze through. I am very curious what he is though. I'll have to get a magnifying glass. He's NOT a roach. I lived in Florida throughout my teens so I am more than acquainted with those pests. He's also not a pill bug.

      I should be getting my mosquito net on Friday, so hopefully all bedtime bloodsuckers will be eliminated so long as they're not hiding IN my blankets. But then I have to worry about when I take the dogs outside. I'm not about to change my clothes every 4 hours, so I guess I'll have to depend on DEET.

      Rave: My dreams have been absolutely amazing. My recall, not so much It always amazes me how I can have such long, intricate dreams in such a short span of time (my best dream came when I fell back to sleep from 10-11:30AM. It felt like the dream spanned days).

      I hope everyone is well.

      I personally absolutely hate when people on video game forums deliberately use terms that are inconsistent with the version that the forum is intended for.
      For example, I frequently visit forums that are explicitly intended for the SNES version of "Final Fantasy 6", and I always see people come in on those forums and use terms from remakes and apparently expect that everyone is gonna be totally familiar with those terms, like they will use names like "Aura Cannon", "Kazekiri" and "Heiji's Jitte" even though the actual SNES names are "AuraBolt", "Tempest" and "Coin Toss".
      I find this use of inconsistent names to be very nonchalant and unnecessarily confusing, almost like those people are trying to pretend like the SNES version has never existed or something, even though there isn't even anything particularly "bad" about that translation and it even was the original American translation of that game.

      I don't know about these people, but personally I kinda like to visit forums that are focused on the actual version that I am interested in, instead of being like "oh, I have this question about the GBA version, guess I will visit the forum for the SNES version then, without specifying which version that I am actually talking about or anything".
      Makes no sense to me.

      Yeah, I get that all the time on PC 7D2D threads and forums. "Why don't we have this and that for the console?" "The Fun Pimps SUCK! They've forgotten us console players!!"
      Go complain on your own thread. Seriously.
      As for character names. Meh, I would probably be guilty of that if I played 2 versions of a game. I'd gravitate toward the name that I can speak the easiest or which grabs me the most (if I understand your gripe. Same character, just different names?)

      My controlled experiments have bugun. I just gave the Plague Bringer (kitten) some more cuddles. Her name is actually Spice, but I'm so convinced she gave me hives, that I call her PB or Plague Bringer Though, it wouldn't actually be HER that I'm reacting to but something she's getting into.
      If I get no hives, the on Sunday, I'm going to go hug that tree I climbed while going after the snake.
      If, by Tuesday, I have no hives then I'll have no idea. It will either be bug bites or *unknown*. I've gotten plenty more bug bites and no further outbreaks of hives.

      Rave: I put my mystery bug under a bright light and I looked him up. NOT a bed bug. But I never could tell exactly what it was. I let him go outside. The other bug I murdered was a longhorn beetle of one variety or another Harmless. I love bug identifier web pages!

      Rave: I managed to stay awake for most of yesterday. HUGE accomplishment
      BUT, I'm feeling fairly comatose today.

      Rant: Another kitten died. Spice probably isn't too far off from joining him. They need to hurry up and put some weight on so I can treat them for worms. That's not the cause of death, but it definitely doesn't help. Feline herpes is what does them in.

      Blackie (I think the kids named him Tap) is the healthiest. Whitey (the kids call her Tip- she's the Siamese with blue tipped ears; but I have no higher brain function to keep those names in mind ) is the next healthiest. Then there's Moby, Ginger (yeah, she's long-haired and orange ), and the twins. After Spice, the twins are the next sickliest, followed by Ginger. Blackie doesn't look sick at all.

      Rave: All of my packages came in today. I need to clean and rearrange my room some more before I even open the mosquito net box. I need to be able to pull my desk just a smidge away from the walls. Hmmmm. I was thinking of cleaning up a side table and joining it to the desk so my feet don't dangle off. BUT, I think the shelf would work better. It's already beside my desk. I can push it behind it, add a couple pillows (it's lower than the desk). That would also free up a bit of floor space. I think that would work!

      I want to wipe my face SOOOOO badly. Ohhhh, something else I could have reacted to is that Chloroxenlol. I'll have to add that to the schedule, though I doubt it because I had been using it with no problems. Maybe it was accumulative though?

      If the different names don't cause any confusion then I will be fine with it, although I will still sort of wonder why someone who plays a different version would want to visit a forum that isn't based on that version.
      But I guess that if you play several versions and happen to be in some specific forum then it's probably more convenient to use the other name.

      The thing that really annoys me though is when some people insist that the original translation somehow isn't "the real thing", just because it made a few minor harmless changes to some things.
      For example, a couple years ago there was some guy who decided to make a "proper translation" of Final Fantasy 7 - and sure, I agree that the original translation was very stiff in a lot of ways, and it had tons of typos and grammatical errors (especially the priceless line "This guy are sick.") - but this guy went so overboard that he even insisted on changing the terms "Phoenix Down" and "moogle" into "Phoenix Tail" and "molebat".
      Yes, those terms are more literal translations of the Japanese names "Fenikkusu No O" and "m˘guri", but that's completely irrelevant - there is nothing wrong with the American terms, and they are highly accepted among almost all Final Fantasy fans.
      Sure, this translation of FF7 may only be a fan translation, but the idea that someone is so obsessed with the "original names" for things that they are ready to replace highly popular and embraced official American names has always been a big pet peeve of mine.

      Another example is when the names "Cross" and "Clik" from Star Ocean: The Second Story were changed into "Krosse" and "Kurik" - what?
      Those names look really weird in the English language, and almost resemble German or something.
      And I am honestly fairly sure that at least the name "Cross" was the name that the Japanese version was actually going for (the Japanese name is "Kurosu", which happens to be exactly how "Cross" would be spelled in Japanese).

      Maybe I sound overly emotional about this, but hey, this is the "Rant and Rave, Cry and Complain" thread.

      Rant away
      I think you can boil your rant down to fanaticism. Those people would drive even me crazy and some claim I have the patience of a Saint
      My real name is April. If I'm traveling abroad, should I get offended if someone calls me Abril or Udzuki (using a translator for the second one- no idea if accurate). Nah.
      The Cross/Krosse change sounds as if it was only done so to look cooler?

      Rant-ish: No hives. I researched the subject some more, though, so I'm still blaming the kitten. A key piece of info fell into my lap last night. I was talking to the girls, telling them that Spice would probably die next and one of my reasons was because she likes to isolate herself and she's always sleeping (more so than norm). My daughter objected and said Spice is always off exploring the back of the house, then comes back with wet feet and tries to climb onto her lap. Wet feet. Back of the house.
      When I gave her cuddles, last week, I did so while visiting the girls in their room. The kittens feet were wet.

      SO... I must be reacting to something at the back of the house.
      I swear, if I ever get the money and energy to actually repair this place, it will never happen because the house will kill me first There's too much water damage back there. If the kitten returns with wet paws, there must be puddles or the wood is just completely rotted through.
      I haven't even looked at the back of the house in almost a year. I'm afraid to, I think. Also, if I don't SEE it, it can't really be THAT bad, can it

      Humor: I took the mosquito net out of its bag and It's going to take someone with a degree in engineering to set that thing up Good googally it's confusing as all heck!! It comes with a free e-book, so I'm definitely going to have to look into that!!!

      Rant: I kept waking up to a migraine. I was supposed to go to hubby's office at 11:30 for my allergy shot, but he called at noon to ask where the heck I was. I slept through my appointment with him. That headache, though, was a BEAST. I cleaned my room for some 8+ hours yesterday (I even dusted under my desk). The headache was most likely due to allergen exposure.
      I got out of the house for a while, bought some lunch, ate with hubby and got my shot and the headache subsided a great deal.
      My daughter just got home from work, though, and came back to say hi and she says my room reeks of must. I wonder if my AC isn't draining right.

      Rant: Momma dog is getting on my last nerve. Her ear reeks and she's bleeding all over the place. Yeah. Not nice (and also not accurate. I tend to exaggerate). But, gah, is she a trying beast. I try to clean and Dr her and spray her with anti-itch spray and she just does not cooperate. And she can't help that gnarly tumor on her ear. SO... I'm nice to her and I haven't banished her from my room yet. I just wish she wasn't such a friggin scardy-puss. My daughter finally got her an appointment but it isn't until the 21st. Hopefully, something can be done to help her feel better. If not, we might have to put her down :sad: It shouldn't come to that though. She doesn't seem to be in pain, just irritated.


      and
      just because...

      **EDIT**
      Ugh. My sarcasm cursed the poor dog. I don't know what the heck she did to her tumor but nearly an hour has passed and I'm still wearing a look of disgust on my face. She was geysering blood out of that thing for a good 5 minutes solid. I ended up just putting a blanket down for her to bleed on when I realized every time I cleaned her ear I was removing or dislodging much needed clots. I went through nearly an entire roll or cheap paper towels. BUT, it looks like the clot finally took.
      Amazingly enough, the puppy isn't trying to steal her blanket. He usually can't stand it when she has anything.
      I hope she doesn't have any more of those episodes!!!!! The 21st can't come quickly enough.

      Well, when it comes to video games and new translations, it can sometimes become a bit annoying and come off as nonchalant when someone deliberately uses totally unfamiliar terms in the wrong forum and apparently just expects everyone to recognise those terms.
      If someone for example needs advice on beating the Soul Of Chaos dungeons in the Daws Of Souls version of "Final Fantasy" and for some reason needs to visit the forum for the NES version (maybe that's the only active forum or something like that), then why not simply start the original post with a quick "I am playing the Daws Of Souls version for the GBA"?
      That's what I would do anyway, because this would immediately make it very clear what I am talking about.

      Two forums that have realised the value in splitting up different versions are RPGClassics and the FF forum CavesOfNarshe;
      those forums have specific sections for each version and it's very easy to look up information about any of those versions there, without all that mess where they use arbitrary terms from arbitrary versions.

      This is just my personal opinion though, I am not usually making a big deal out of it in the actual forums.

      Start rant,crave and cry:
      Is this forum fading away or am I just overthinking things?
      I looked at some web statistics and saw that, last year DV had around 1M views per month, but now only around 150k views! It fell from around 50000 global ranking to 300000 and it's going down really fast! Maybe VR took huge chunk from LD's. If this continue, soon will be totally deserted!
      End rant, crave and cry.

      Rant
      Recently my dreams are intense but very blurry and forgeting them very fast upon awakening. So I am in dry period of lucid dreams, but I had so many tasks and goals to acomplish this month. This totally get on my nerves!
      end rant

      For those that like to stir the pot, should know what you are cooking before you get burned.

      Rant: I've been extremely busy.

      Melancholic Rant:

      I been struggling with flu symptoms for over a week, lost hearing in my right ear with pain, and now finished all course of meds without much improvement. Worst thing out of this was that to pause working out and studies. I wish I had a pet to cuddle, being sick is not fun. ^^'

      Gordon, VR as in Virtual Reality? Hmmm. Part of me thinks VR would encourage LD and vivid regular dreams. But perhaps it makes people "lazy" in that they no longer feel the need to work towards it anymore.

      LucidBunnie. Feel better soon!!

      Rants: I'm still itchy and rashy (it might be heat), but not intolerably so...
      ... I was wrong about the order of kittens. One of the twins died and then Ray culled Whitey because she was suffering a slow death. Now the other twin and Moby (and, of course, Spice) are knocking on deaths door. Spice is quite the little fighter though. She has vastly surprised me. If they can beat this initial sickness, they'll be fine. It's just really hard for kittens to do so...
      ... I'm sort of bored and listless. I've been spending a lot of time in bed to escape the flies (the mosquito net works wonders!!)...
      ... but I have a fat roll that irritates me to know end unless I'm sitting board straight in my chair. Reclining is just bothersome. I need to lose weight
      ... went to a wedding yesterday at our Farm. It was very nice but we didn't know anyone except for the guy who takes care of the Farm for us. We bugged out after the ceremony. Hubby took a pic of me which really made me realize how much weight I've put on.
      MeFarm2.jpg
      It doesn't help that I was standing weird, but still.
      That's my "50 gallon drum" of soda I'm holding. I'd probably lose all the weight just by not drinking that. But I'd sooner start exercising

      Rave: The Bethesda convention looked promising. People tend to be jerks though. So Fallout, on-line, will probably just follow the way of Ark. I'm super excited that it takes place in my home state though. Very cool!

      ^ Awesome pic, Zhalin!
      Rant: I have had my fair share of fake friends for this week. Ugh!
      Rant: I've been flaking on my DJing lately. I don't have time to think about my own needs. I had a bad dream about someone who had an obsession with me when I was in college, years ago. He was caught loitering near my dorm in real life. Or bullying. Honestly, It's something that I will not tolerate in real life, then, now or ever.
      Rant: My boyfriend has poison sumac.

      Thanks IC. I hope your BF gets better quickly!!
      My dreams have been suffering lately too. And I also had a bad dream last night but I don't remember a thing about it.

      Rant: I've been extra hungry lately. And I'm craving junk. Junk is a normal part of my every day diet without these extra cravings
      My period never showed up this month, so maybe that's what it is.

      Rant: We're being over-run with spiders. I woke up earlier in the day, lounged in bed for a bit, then when I went to put my big pillow on a container beside me, I saw a huge Wolf Spider. On the INSIDE of my mosquito net I murdered him
      THEN, I had a small spider run across my keyboard... and then there was another small spider ON MY BED. I rescued the one on my keyboard but killed the one on my bed.
      I also think we had a large roach in the bathroom last night. I killed it too and it died easily which makes me doubt it was actually a roach There's some moths around here that look a lot like roaches.
      All of the rain is driving all the bugs inside.

      Rave: I've been enjoying my 3-D DS a lot lately. I'm about to go back to bed and get on it again.

      Last 3 days has been an emotional roller-coaster! My mom who had no heart issues had a serious heart attack out of nowhere without a warning, was declared dead after taking to hospital, revived with weak pulse, put on artificial life support, gone into a coma with clots in brain, everyone lost hope, miraculously vitals improved, she's put on ventilator, regained consciousness, seems responsive. They say it's near impossible she hasn't suffered serious neurological damage. Long way before they can do procedure to remove blocks near her heart, but they are saying it's a miracle she survived and recovering. They say it's an act of overwhelming will to survive. I'm sad she's not fully recovered. I'll feel better when she has surgery to tackle the core issue that put her in a coma in the first place. Regardless a little happy as well, she came a long way after she been declared dead for few moments. I kept begging to do defibrillation and not just give up. They listened and did so. I'm glad they did.

      I LOVE the rain, Mob... unless I have to be out in it lol. Then, it's okay as long as it doesn't drown me. I blame my dad (I actually blamed my mom, for decades, until I was recently correctly ). When I was a little kid, I was always told: "[email protected] don't melt." I never took it as an insult (yeah, I'm "slow"), but a humorous testament of will.
      I definitely agree with you on not liking inconsiderate people though!

      Wow, Lucid! I'm so sorry for the scare and the battles to come. I hope your mom makes a full and speedy recovery!!

      Here's something I posted on FB. Maybe y'all could help.

      "Okay, everyone, help me find a word.
      A store is selling something that comes with free items. You're not really interested in what's being sold but you HAVE to have those freebies because they're exclusive.
      So, you end up buying the item for the _____.

      It's a slang word from my kids day. It's not loot or bling. It MIGHT be merch but that doesn't feel right.

      That's how I'm feeling about the new Fallout game. Yeah, the game COULD be awesome (but it's on-line and people tend to be jerks, so meh) but those exclusive freebies that come with pre-ordering are calling my name (even though they're probably all "sold out" at this point in time )

      That word's been bugging me for days lol"

      Other than that, all is quiet. I'm about to head to Elkins to eat at the Steak place with hubby. It'll be nice to get some meat. I've been living on cereal, chips, pastries and Skittles for the last several days. I'm having carb and fiber overload and my stomach is not happy with me. (With gastroparesis I'm supposed to lay off the fiber)

      I did find another roach in the bathroom last night. He got away before I could squish him so now I'm extra paranoid (I used to have as worse a phobia for roaches that some have for spiders). I'm going to buy a screen for the bathroom window next week and a tarp to cover the broken bathtub so the cats will stop using it as their literbox. Then we're going to scrub the walls and everything else.

      The biting flies are also back in force. I have to spray down with DEET when I wake up and leave my netted area. They're persistent buggers if nothing else.

      Also, Spice finally died the other day. The last three kittens will likely make it. They seem healthy other than some minorly gunky eyes.

      Today’s rant is that I continue to be ridiculously hungry.
      Usually, I have guidance- I crave meat, or carbs, or some particular veggie. Not so anymore. Now, I’m like some ravenous dinosaur that wants to consume everything in its path. What. the friggin. heck.
      I feel like I’ve gained 10 pounds this past week alone.
      And there’s no telling the hunger no, either. I feel like an addict when I try to deny it.
      My blood sugar is fine. I have absolutely no idea what’s going on. It’s weird and EXTREMELY unlike me.

      I am STILL incredibly and constantly fatigued.
      Both of those rants are getting on my last flipping nerve.

      Humorous: I no longer have a decent mirror. My mosquito net completely covers the one at my bed. I had no idea what my back looked like (what with all the bug bites or rashes and scratching). So I took a pic. Do y’all have any idea how hard it is to take a pic of the middle of your back
      Thankfully, it’s at the top of my back so it was doable. The pic sucks but it shows a whole lot of nasty scabs.
      I have no new bug bites. The mosquito net and applying DEET after I wake up seem to be doing the job of keeping me covered.

      I visited mom first time after she recovered from coma. She's disoriented and gets people confused. She thinks it's the year 1997. Hopefully she'll improve with time. T^T

      I was born in 1997. Sorry to hear about your mum, that must be incredibly difficult. My grandma has dementia and it's a horrible disease. I can't imagine how I'd cope if one of my parents had it

      I hope your mom becomes stronger and more lucid every day.

      My husbands mom had alzheimer's so I used to worry a lot about him inheriting it. But he'll be 75 this summer so I think he's in the clear (well, for "early onset" anyhow...)

      Heh, I tried making a quick muzzle for the pup (just looping a leash around the snout and tying it off behind the head). He got it off each and every time, lol, but he didn't freak out about it. He didn't LIKE it, but he didn't freak. I gave him treats for being my test subject.
      I'll definitely have to buy a real one. I looked up info about crocheting them, but I don't do measurements and "increasing/decreasing" stitches.
      I want to get him something durable but not scary looking. I also have to buy those Chill Out pills. I think the dog park has opened back up (it was down for improvements).

      But my priority, right now, is the house. The stench from the bathroom is killing me. It's also contributing greatly to this fly problem. These flies gotta die. Every time I seem to make any headway and kill them off, others just replace them. I could probably use tarp as the wall sized "access panel" to the shower as well as blocking the tub. BUT, if I close off that access, the tub wont be a problem anymore.
      I need to buy a million Magic Erasers, bleach, mothballs, 2 new brooms and a couple mop heads tomorrow night. Bah!! Oh yes- and a window screen!!!!

      Rant: I did something to the pinky on my right hand. I pop the lowest knuckles of my fingers by pulling the finger into my palm with my thumb. Doing so, hurts and has for the last few days. Making a fist is uncomfortable. Even popping the joint by pulling it out in uncomfortable. It's not swollen though and poking and prodding it doesn't bother me. So it's probably muscle strain.

      Rant: This ungodly heat!!

      Rant: Gas. I think I was doubled over from pain last night. I ate some cereal this morning and now that pain is returning. I need to lay off the fiber and bulk. Or maybe it's the Skittles... hmmm.
