Subject: Re: I had my 1st colonoscopy today
Marshmud:  Yeah the prep is the hard part.. and first time you usually are nervous. Now-a-days they have new drugs. I had one in 2006 after a bad illness. When  it was over I was thanking  everyone for the virtual tour. I must have been a talker through the whole thing. LOL Course the drug they use wipes out the memory of it. You are still coherent so you can shift around.

Do you know of someone who is perhaps a young college student. Or someone who travels??

Two Home Made Ideas for an Awesome Winter Holiday present

1. A First Aid Kit Survival kit for the car (For the Traveler)
I put together one of these about a half dozen years ago for my father who enjoys taking drives on the back roads of Wyoming at odd times.. after learning of one trip where he got stuck till search and rescue found him..

        ~ Survival Kits ~

 Food and water
 Flashlight and spare batteries
 Crank or battery-operated radio (portable stereo and headphones)
 Candles and matches or lighter
 Whistle (in case you need to attract attention)
 Toiletries, spare eyeglasses and other personal items
 First aid kit, prescription drugs
 Extra set of keys and money (including small change for pay telephones)
 Copies of your important documents (identification, personal papers)
 Winter clothing, boots and blankets or sleeping bags

      ~ For The Car ~

 Shovel, scraper and snow brush
 Sand, salt or cat litter and antifreeze
 Matches and candles in a metal container
 Spare clothing and shoes, blanket
 Tow rope, jumper cables, windshield-washer fluid
 Warning light or road flares and fire extinguisher
 First aid kit with seatbelt cutter
 Water and emergency food (such as energy bars)
 Roadmaps, whistle and flashlight

2. And for that College Student or New to the World Young Adult why not put together a basket of daily needs.. such as

  • Vitamins
  • Hand Lotions
  • Vicks
  • Aroma Therapy trinkets
  • (female) Facial Masques
  • Foot care needs
  • Certificates to the Beauty shop or Barbers in the neighborhood ~ or if you know where they like going, purchase them from there..
  • If they are an active College Student why not a gift certificate to the college Bookstore.

    Have a wonderful Holiday Season

    Hey Partica.. I will send you my Astronomy text book.. should be done with it by Wed.. That for sure will put you to sleep!! LOL

    Will go through more of my textbooks too and send you out others that may help..

    Subject: Re:
    Studying astronomy.. just read the text books late at night.. haha..

  • Warm Milk
  • Warm Shower
  • Meditation

    Do not watch television.. at least 1/2 before bed it stimulates your brain too much. And, although some believe coffee keeps you awake. I have heard the opposite effect for several others. So perhaps Java at night.

    Subject: Re: planting seeds
    hahaha.. My first hubby decided to try and grow pot as well.. he would talk to the plants.. and give them light.. water, and really babied them.. they would always start to die.. but, then he would go away for the week.. (his job).. and I would neglect them fully.. haha I didn't want this stuff even growing in my house!! Anyway.. I wouldn't give them any water.. or sunlight.. just hoping they would fully die off.. but, to my surprise.. they actually got healthier!! LOL

    Subject: Yes Viking.. I use Tylenol or similar which contain the
    acetaminophen.. Usually I can tell if it will be a migraine day.. and I pop two of them down.. So rarely anymore do I need anything stronger..

    What triggers my migraines are unstable sleep patterns.. Or a shift in my eating pattern..

    Anger will also bring it on.. and strongly I might add.. so long ago I learned how to manage my anger.. lol

    Those that do slip away, if it is at the beginning I can sometimes take the Tylenol.. and then lie down in darkness and no noise.. My children know the procedure when I do get them and are very good about letting me have some peace.. I usually meditate if that is what you call it.. I clear my head and tell my body bit by bit to relax.. I learned the technique about 10 years ago in my psych I class.. better known as self hypnotise.. but, on the rare occassion now a days if one were to go full blown I wouldn't run to the emergency room.. (I can't drive during them due to blacking out).. I would actually ask a friend for a couple of hits of a joint.. I know that sounds awful.. and I don't promote weed or pot.. but, it does take away migraines that have gone full blown.. and it is very natural..

    Subject: Shoot no meds work for me once my migraine takes off in full force..
    It took years to learn all the first warning signs that it was going to be a migraine day.. I have had them since I was 12.. my oldest gets them as well.. as well as my neice.. and my grandmother had them also..

    I found that smoking a j just a puff or two.. will completely melt the pressure away within mins.. (I've only done that one time, but I do know that if another one gets away from me.. I will look for someone who has weed..)

    prescription meds.. I am allergic to asprin and anything similar.. I get hives internally as well as externally.. I am also allergic to codine.. so pain relievers are something I steer clear of.. I have to depend on Tylenol to stop it at its earlier warnings..

    Subject: I get migraines as well..
    and I have had them long enough that I can tell hours before if it is a migraine day.. I usually can ward them off with just Tylenol now.. been having them since I was 12.. the symptoms continue getting worse.. If I go into one.. and I am able to meditate along with the tylenol.. I can usually kick it out.. but, the after affects are now becoming more problemsome.. I end up with a dumb like feeling.. I have problems with my vision afterwards.. as well as my speech.. and this usually lasts for several hours..

    When I say vision problems I mean white splotches, and I don't wear glasses.. my eyes test out fine.. and by speech.. I mean that I start studdering.. and loosing my train of thoughts..

    I am alergic to both codine and asprin.. and anything that contains asprin..

    Does anyone else show the same problems I have after the migraine?
