  1. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Thank you. It's been a long time coming. I do wish my stomach would return to normal now, though ... gotta give it the old probiotic/Greek yogurt shuffle.
  2. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    It's feeling better, at long last. The Augmentin gave me stomach trouble, but it didn't mess with my hives. Those responded to hydroxyzine for once. Never have before.
  3. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Have taken a rizatriptan for what I think is a migraine. My head feels like a watermelon.
  4. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    WT-Actual-F? Now my hives are acting up again, in the exact same location that they were before (left shin). This is getting ridiculous!

    ... and wouldn't you [CENSORED] know it, the ingrown toenail surgical site has become infected! I've been put on Augmentin for it. Smegging feet. I need a new pair.
  6. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    I've been keeping my podiatrist busy again. Had part of the nail of my right big toe removed Wednesday. It had gone ingrown on me, and I only just noticed the pain a few days prior to my scheduled follow-up appointment (for the surgery to amputate most of the third toe on my left foot - that part went well). He gave me a couple of anesthesia shots into my big toe - quite painlessly and very skillfully I should say - and then cut into and removed the right edge of the nail. Turns out it had grown thick due to previous trauma (long story), and the ingrown portion had developed a nasty, sharp hook which was causing the recent pain. He treated the nail bed with a mixture of phenol and something else, which should prevent that part of the nail from ever growing back.

    As well. Don't think I have cluster headaches, though. Those are more nasty than what I get.
  8. What Are You Ingesting?

    My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream. Found it at Costco. GOOD stuff. https://www.mymomochi.com/
  9. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    I'm having eye pain as I type this. My eyes were dilated today for a yearly diabetic retinopathy exam, despite the fact that my A1C levels for the past 3+ years have been below a 6 (which essentially makes me not diabetic, according to my cardiologist). Anyway, for some reason, my eyes have been more light-sensitive than usual post-exam. This white background is making them hurt, some 7 hours after the exam. That's never happened before. I even took a nap, thinking that would help. It didn't. My oxycodone's not even helping. I had work of a sort that I needed to do tonight. I'm not going to get any of it done.
  10. Things That Make You Happy

    Having a decent Indianapolis 500 this year. The race was good, the crowd turn-out was fantastic, and hopefully the ratings will be high. Good IndyCar action.

    I had two cups of coffee this morning, and my pain medication still managed to knock me out for several hours. Makes me wonder why I bother to drink the stuff at times.
  12. Mother's Day Gift 2019

    My son and I conspired behind his mother's back to commission another webcomic artist (Kittyhawk, http://montrose.is/sketching ) to draw his mother as one of the sailor senshi from Sailor Moon. I've always associated her with Sailor Jupiter because of her kindness and her strength, so we had Kittyhawk try and adapt a 56-year-old woman to a sailor senshi. The results were remarkable. So, I give you my wife's mother's day present: Sailor Brenda, a.k.a. Sailor Scorpio! She's not really that skinny and her legs aren't that long, but hey - artistic license, okay? Anyway, my wife loves it. She's gonna get it printed on slate to match the Kittyhawk drawings of our two cats I had commissioned last year.
  13. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    I need to invest in a good set of steel toes.
  14. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    That is what's called a "Ram's Horn." It's caused by trauma to the nail and the nail bed, according to my doctor. You see, way back when my son was a 3-or-4 year old, he managed to swing his sneaker-shod foot backward so that the sole caught my bare big toe. He tore off the entire toenail in one fell swoop. My toe has never recovered, and I still remember the pain to this day.

    I'm just waiting for my foot to stop hurting. Take a look at my foot post-op here: https://dleejackson.lbjackson.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/MiddleToe01a.jpg See the single stitch on my foot proper? That's where the doctor cut into my foot and took a bone biopsy. It still hurts there, sometimes more than in my toe.
