Mr. Spring is being obnoxious (not bad obnoxious, just gross male obnoxious) and I've threatened to get the orange ruffles if he doesn't stop. #anyexcuse

Murrrcat, my best friend always does that. He does suffer from frequent migraines. He might drink once or twice a year and never more than a weak mixed drink or a couple glasses of wine.

You very well could be allergic or have sensitivities, depending on what you are drunking (I'm gonna leave that). I honestly think that is a large part of my bff's problem. If he had allergy testing done I am sure he would be allergic to everything but lettuce.

some yall need some man-anger management.

and every night i praise to Buddha for smacking me with the pretty stick
Man, that stake's even got some fancy carving and blue paint on it. Someone must be so bummed they lost their Mr. Pointy. In the never-ending battle against the fanged cereal menace, some sacrifices must be made.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
I googled it some and I think it could be ulcers in my stomach. Which would kind of make sense because I'm spazzy jazzy. Becuase when I think about it coffee also makes my stomach hurt but NOT as much as alcohol.

Another answer googz gave was acid reflux, which could also make sense because Y'all know I be having crazy heartburn.

The other answer is IBS, which seems odd because I don't really have bathroom problems....unless I drink...so Idk!

But none of those explain the phlegm in my throat or migraines. Hmmmm Then theres the multiple causation factor that nobody has time for.

It's like a game of clue but with my body.
if anyone cares, my favorite color is teal.
They must have someone new doing forecasts on NOAA. It's changing about 12 times a day, which isn't typical. According to what I read last night I had time to get up around 11, finish laundry, pack a bag, run to town, leave my car at the bottom of the mountain, and get a ride back home before snow start accumulating. Now I am not so sure. They can not make up their mind.

At times like this I miss living in a place that you could drive out of, without chains, in the snow.

The tension in my jaw seems to not want to go away and it is like the more I mess with it to make it better the worse it gets.

Meh.

You can find different recommendations on line. Drinks, things using the powder variations of calcium, etc. along with jaw exercises. *Cereal with warm milk is always my favorite, along with a supplement. Something you don't have to chew a great deal is always nice*

When tension builds to an extreme one Soma works well too. Lol

I didn't know that actually so thanks . I just wonder if my jaw is misaligned a bit and causing it to be painful. I also noticed that at the back of the inside of my mouth where I had my wisdom teeth out I have this weird webbing where i guess my tendons would be and when I open my mouth wide and it pulls. It seemed to have caused the tension in my jaw. I was going to have my boss check it out but I know he doesn't specialize in TMJ. I feel like calling my dentist but I am worried I'll end up paying a fortune for it. I'm confused

He has done consultations and scans so far. The next part includes work with a tens unit to see how my jaw reacts and having a mold made. He believes your teeth should be built up or filed down in places to correct alignment. When he makes the guard for your mouth, it factors this in. You wear it 24-7 until your jaw is used to the new position. He makes adjustments during that time, and when he removes it, he builds your teeth up to match. I don't even want to know how much that costs.

He is good, and I will have a perfect smile when all is said and done, if I can afford it. I might have to go another route, though I would love to do this. My dental insurance is no help.

PS- I love his office. I have walked in to the administrative assistant chained to the desk, via her belly button ring. Haha. Bunch of freaks! I felt right at home.

There is a non creepy story behind that and it was all in good fun.

Thanks cympreni. I am have been resting and took some ibuprofen so I may try ice and heat. But when I'm still all I can think about is the tension.

Fifi that is cray. I just can't afford to pay out of pocket for a consult right now. But I guess I won't know until I call.

You know, in six years, this has my first in-case impalement. Ripped cases, squashed cases, cases destroyed by other liquid cases spilling on them, yes. Vampire staked cases? Nope.

CS, you may want to try and look up jaw massage, it can be done both inside and outside of your mouth on the masseter muscle; I think there are videos on it if you google. I had one particular spot that I could get my thumb on and really work at that hurt so bad that is now pain free, I guess there was a knot in there. I was also clinching my teeth all day every day so I had to learn the resting position of the jaw and I constantly police myself to make sure I'm not clinching.

I do heat to the side of my face for 1 minute, massage inside and out for about 30 seconds then ice for 30 seconds and repeat 3 times total.

I hope you're able to get some relief.

It is pouring snow. It just started 15-20 minutes ago.

I need a sled!! Maybe not. They are now saying it will switch to all rain a bit later, then back to snow.

I was out running errands last weekend and ran into on of the fellas that works for me out and about with his family.

He said now when he comes hom from work his daughter peppers him with questions about the "lady boss". "Does the lady boss make all the decisions?" "Does the lady boss tell you what to do?" "Can I be a lady boss when I grow up?"

I am having flashbacks to thelio's ball thingy post
