I enjoyed a nice hot fudge sundae with chocolate ice cream at lunch. I took a friend out for her bday since I have to work on Friday and that's when her actual bday falls.

I really shouldn't have done that because I'm going to the carnival tonight for funnel cake.

I see extra metformin pills in my day today

So instead, I'm treating it with coffee, water and the usual tylenol/ibuprofen piggyback. I'm down to about a 4/10 and think I can get myself to work. Anyone else roaming around this morning? I have fresh brooooownieeeees!
Each caplet contains:

Tylenol 250 mg
Aspirin 250 mg
Caffeine 65 mg

So your combination is perfect along with the chocolate from brownies...those make everything better.

Sorry about the headache.

I must have missed this thread. I hope your head is feeling better. When I use to work swing shifts I would get migraines every time I had to work 3rd shift. I use to take 800mg of Motrin and sit on my sofa with a wet cloth on a TV tray with my head down on it. That's the only thing that worked for me.

Also, did you know that Novartis owns Excedrin? I only know that because they own my company also.

Last year I went through a spell where I was getting debilitating migrains. The only thing that worked for me was to vomit. As soon as I stopped vomitting, BANG! The headache was gone. My eyes were open, my head was up and I felt just fine. You would never know that five seconds ago I was ready to be taken to the hospital. A couple of time I did have to go. What ever they gave me worked. An IV, put me in a dark room and an hour later sent me on my way.

Hi friends, pray for wisdom for the firefighters fighting the Black Forest fire. Please also pray for their safety. Pray for an end to the flames and wind and heat. Thank you.

Thanks PF. The Excedrin didn't get rid of it totally, blunted it a bit though. I felt better once the storm passed at 9pm. Then today I felt it start coming back...didn't get to the drugs in time and got hit hard. I crashed for a couple of hours after work and guess what???? Another thunderstorm hit. Its passed now, and I'm starting to feel better. Sheesh. This is stupid.

I'm having some tea and catching up. Missed you all the last day or so.

Ice isn't helping? Maybe its time for something stronger? Can I pour a little something in your tea?
