  1. Things That Make You Happy

    The Japanese term for someone not being able to handle hot foods/drinks is "they have a cat's tongue." Prime example.
  2. What Are You Watching?

    The 1997 one with Tommy Lee Jones, set in Los Angeles.
  3. What Are You Watching?

    Volcano, the movie. Lots of science problems with it, but good action.
  4. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    I'm waiting for insurance approval to have an operation that will supposedly help with debilitating pain down my right side and right leg. We're talking about an 8.0 to 9.0 on a zero-to-ten scale. The pain kicked in out of nowhere on Monday of last week and hasn't left. The operation I'm waiting for is something called "radio ablation" of my right side nerve endings along my spinal cord. It's hard to describe, but it's supposed to make things feel better. I damn sure hope so.
  5. Where have you been going?

    To my local post office to get a passport. Mrs. Prof and I are celebrating her retirement and our 35th wedding anniversary by going on a trip to the U.K. this October. I'm also going to meet up with a mate who does a radio show out of Lincoln called "The Cyber Den" and hopefully be a guest on his Wednesday program. (He did the interview with me on the Calibrations CD.) After that, it's a guided tour for us through England, Scotland, and Wales.
  6. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Had a pair of steroid injection procedures into my back last Friday at the hospital. One was into my lower right side of my back , while the other was into my sacroiliac joint (basically, my tailbone) on my left side. The latter was done to fix, believe it or not, a problem with my left leg. I couldn't lift it onto the threshold of a car in order to enter, or up onto a stool to dry it off after a shower. The pain was excruciating. After the procedure, half my butt was numb for a day (the left half, obviously). I gave it a test the next day. Carefully, I lifted my left leg and put my foot on a chair. No pain! None at all. Today marks four days since the procedure, and I still don't have any pain lifting my left leg. It's almost like I never had any pain there in the first place. The story with my right side is a bit different: just a tiny amount of relief. Still, I consider the left side relief a miracle.

    New blog posts about the ASCAP situation: https://dleejackson.lbjackson.com/2018/05/a-goal-achieved-before-reality-sets-in/ https://dleejackson.lbjackson.com/2018/06/and-all-well-most-becomes-clear/
  8. The Album, and Other Music

    I've finally netted $100 in sales from the CD, MP3, and streaming sales. Not a king's ransom, but money is money. Another thing I've netted is a title I can add to my name - ASCAP! As in ProfessorTomoe, ASCAP. (Not my real title) (No Ass Cap jokes, please)
  9. The Weather.

    What have they got you on as a migraine preventative? The boost to 400mg of Topomax seems to have done wonders. I haven't had a hand grenade go off in my head in a couple of weeks.
  10. What Are You Ingesting?

    Crystal Light Lemon Iced Tea. I'm too damned tired to do anything else.
  11. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Turns out I did give Mrs. Prof the same disease, and thanks to her stubbornness she let it get worse than mine. She now has an acute maxial infection with water behind the ear, according to the folks at CareNow. And, for some dumb reason, she's going to continue with plans to conduct a feral cat round-up on Sunday. She's going to make herself worse, especially when you consider that she's got to take me to my pain med checkup on Monday. To add to the agony, the stupid Windows update made Google Drive try and sync with every file on my system, and in my anxiousness to get them off, I wound up deleting most of what was there, including my medical records. That's it - I'm using Dropbox from now on, because I'm going to have to restore a recent image backup to an empty drive and then restore what I had from Google drive just so I can access my medical records.
  12. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Had to visit the doctor today. Been having sore throat issues, along with congestion (nasal & chest), sinus pain, non-migraine headaches, and a generally foggy head, making it unable for me to write music. Diagnosis: upper respiratory infection that has spread to my mouth. Additional: while showering, I noticed a black spot on the second toe of my left foot. That's the one that had the toenail removed back in February due to infection. Well, the toe is now ulcerated and infected again. I'm on a 14-day course of Augmentin. I haven't been able to write music today or yesterday, although I'm hoping I can by tomorrow (or at least by Saturday). Mrs. Prof is now complaining that I've given her the same disease. I hope not.
  13. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    A connection has been made between the itching and the 400mg of Topamax. Turns out that, in rare cases, Topamax can cause diffuse itching without an accompanying rash. I seem to have fallen into that crack. I have no rash, and I must scratch. If it weren't for the stuff keeping me from having daily migraines, I'd go back to the 200mg dose. I'm still getting migraines, but they're few and far between now.
  14. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    In re: mlooney's TMI post on another thread: In non-TMI news, I'm fully transferred onto the 400mg dose of Topamax. Any difficulty speaking has been subtle, if non-existent. Still keeping an eye on it. I'm also having to add Benadryl to my already hefty dose of antihistamines. I've been itching all over the upper part of my body for several days now. It feels like an attack of the hives, but there are no visible symptoms.
