Addie, I've become convinced in my years that most of us are our own worst enemy, we don't need others! Left to ourselves, we'll self-destruct if we don't take care!!

If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown flush it down. Just sayin!

Wow, you have been busy..want to come and clean my house next

Seriously though Addie, it is a shame you cant sleep, maybe try some decaf coffee

I am on my way. Put the coffee pot on. Up all night last night also. I have my days and nights mixed up. But then I am not planning on going anywhere, so it doesn't really matter.

I know there are other people's vents here that I need to acknowledge and reply too but first I need to get mine out.

I am on day 11 of a migraine and I am not in a happy place. I have made sure I have stayed away from my triggers, the medications and dyes I had for the heart tests will be out of my system by now and I am using heating pads, warm cloths on my forehead, breathing techniques, lots of naps, staying out of the heat outside, removing stressors - everything I can think of that has ever worked in the past.

I have a ton of stuff to do and to be very honest I am really tired of health problems. My life is finally settling down into something I like and I don't want to have to deal with my health.

It actually isn't a migraine at the moment, but is still a very severe pounding headache and I feel it wanting to upgrade.

There, that's better. Thanks for listening.

I know I'm several days late, but I wanted to thank everyone for your comments and stories after my post last week. I got some good laughs reading them.
Laurie, I hope your head feels better soon!
