Regular Ambien does that for me. It's only meant to get you to sleep, so it wears off after about 4 hours. I now have to take Ambien CR to get my full 8 hours. Though I think I'm bagging the Ambien all together. Randomly going and spending money is not in my budget. Nor is eating a whole bag of chips, a whole container of cookies, or a whole sleeve of Ritz crackers in my weight-loss plan.
You can I should hang out at night. I'm an insomniac and can keep an eye on you to make sure you don't get the cookies or spend the rent money.
You're on.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Someone should start a thread about things they have done on Ambien. These are cracking me up. It's also scary that this pill can have this affect on people. My daughter takes it occassionally.

I can't top any of the stories on here, but once at a hotel I realized about 5 seconds to late that I had a bottle of lotion, not conditioner in the shower with me. Yep, I "conditioned" my hair with lotion.

A few months ago, my son had a cut on his finger so I put a band-aid on it. He was at the putting-everything-in-his-mouth stage so I made a mental note to keep a close eye so he didn't choke on the band-aid. We had another couple over for dinner and DS wasn't eating solids yet, so we let him play in his exersaucer while the grown-ups were eating. All of a sudden my husband looked down at DS and said "uh-oh" and when I looked, the band-aid wasn't on his finger. And for some crazy reason I thought DS wasn't breathing. So I jumped up and started doing the finger swipe, sticking my finger in his mouth/throat trying to clear the band-aid. After a few seconds it became clear that DS was in fact breathing (and I was making him gag) so I took my finger out and saw the band-aid sitting right on the exersaucer. I looked back and my husband and our friends were looking at me like

Now every time we see this couple, and someone coughs or gags a little, they're like "watch out or Pixie will stick her finger down your throat!"

I just thought of one....

I was in San Diego with my husband & his business partner & his wife. They mixed up our reservations, so they upgraded us to the upper, private floor. There was a free bar there. We went there while they were getting our rooms ready. We got so wasted. It was like children in a candy store.

Apparently, (from what some of the other guests told me) I went to get ice for our room in the buff. They said I walked past them totally nude holding an ice bucket, said hello, got my ice & went back to the room. I don't remember this.

Not too bad, but I broke my glasses a little. I take my contacts off after I get home from school, so lately I've been kinda guessing where everything is. Yesterday, I thought I grabbed a bottle of water, but when I looked closely, it was salad dressing.

I also dropped my car keys in a toilet. A PUBLIC toilet.

A shoe too. I'm a foot flusher and had on clogs. Damn.

Are you sensing a theme?

You can learn some good things from any thread. Just take it with a grain of salt and it'll be ok.

OMG!!! I am laughing so hard that my co-worker is giving me the evil eye. I can't top this but I took a glass of tea that was for constipation relieve and forgot and took a teaspoon of laxative and went to bed. I had cramping pain at four am which I thought would go away after going to the bathroom.

So feeling better I happily went to work, big mistake I was in the bathroom every 10 - 15 mins (and I don't do public bathrooms work or otherwise). The pain came in waves and for the most part I could not talk much less work.

The pain did not subside until 6 pm when I got home. I am never doing that again

I electrocuted myself last week.

I'm so embarrased because I'm such a "safety gal" and I knew better.

One of garage carriage lights had burned out, so I went to change it. When I grabbed and started to turn the old bulb, the glass part completely separated from the metal part that screws into the socket, but the glass bulb stayed intact. That freaked me out a bit, but metal wires and filament tube where still there so I reached up to rotate them out and as soon as I made contact the electricity surged through my arm and shoulder, making me scream out.

The electric current wasn't strong enough knock me down or hurt me, but it felt like I had sunburn on the inside of my arm for the next hour.

I just felt like a dumb ace!

Once I opened my car door and somehow smacked myself in the face with it. And my glasses are rimless on the bottom and the lens was actually sharp, and I cut my face.
