First, the blood pressure thing: I went to the doctor, as I mentioned I was going to do in my last entry. That happened on Monday afternoon.
The Zanaflex was definitely the candidate. Since I stopped taking it, my BP hasn’t dipped lower than 100/65. WOO!
I’m back on the Temazepam, but I’m okay with [...]
When I first joined Opera Memphis, I was apprehensive. I was young, I didn’t know a lot about opera, and I was basically there to sing (after having auditioned due to peer pressure…the friend who dragged me along ended up not showing up at all), but had limited experience with performing in a serious musical [...]
I can’t imagine what Google is going to bring my way with a title like that…
I’m on Twitter, and I’m fairly active, most days, with a smallish group of folks that comprise the majority of my timeline. We don’t segregate ourselves or anything, we just get along really well, so we end up chatting [...]
Before I begin this epic adventure in writing, I want to point out a few things:
Without follow-up from any of the involved parties, this falls under the umbrella of “speculation.” Because there are details that were added to try to “legitimize” the claim, some of the folks named in this may not actually be [...]
I got here intending to simply write about what a smart (doctor) friend told me about the weird cavities I pointed out in the last post (they’re called mastoid air cells, more on that in a second), but when I pulled up the images on the CD that was given to me, I found a [...]
Last month, before my surgery (and part of the reason I was so concerned with possible hormonal involvement, anyway), I got a bad migraine that manifested first with vertigo. The headache persisted for over a week. I was put on fioricet, which is apparently very good for some folks, but didn’t help me much. It [...]
I was pretty damned nervous. I haven’t been in two years, I have a hole in one tooth, my molars feel all jagged…it’s just not a good situation in there, IMHO.
This was WEIRD. I had to hold a mirror in my mouth for those last four pictures. The first one, I just [...]
My left hand KILLS when I try to type for too long. I’m still not sure why…it’s mainly the pinky, and the position of my hands/arms doesn’t much matter.
Also, I seriously just keep forgetting to, because I’m stressed out and tired.
I dyed my hair (it’s purple with blue ends, because yep, I felt [...]
Some of it was anonymous, because the senders didn’t include a note with their package, so if you’d like to own up to the Shepherd’s Tale/parasol combo, or the full copy of Rocksmith (because while I think I know who sent it, it arrived awfully quickly, with the cord included with the game), please do [...]
Yep, I’m a cyborg, now.
After lamenting a bit about wheelchairs and having to get one, ZOMG WHERE WOULD I FIND ONE, etc., Farmgirl recommended Harbor Freight.
As far as I was concerned, Harbor Freight was a hardware store, so I was skeptical, but I looked online, and lo and behold, they have [...]
