Just a brief whine:

I have had a head/chest cold for 11 straight days. If I don't take cold medicine (Nasal decongestant) at night I can't sleep at all (I have apnea and need 'the machine'). I don't know what they put in cold medicines these days but I feel crappy until about noon the next day. Kinda half-stoned, half-hungover.

I am over it! I am SOOOOO looking forward to getting off these dang meds!

[/whine]

Keep it sober, Y'all!

Great post RedAndy, foreign travel can be fraught with danger to the drinker or drug user, especially in countries where the punishments are imposed to make a point to others.

Good to see you Lava and I am glad that you are back to not drinking.

STDragon, my older sis and brother-in-law owned a restaurant until recently and if they wete here they would tell you what a lousy waiter I was. On the occasions that I helped I was directed to operate the coffee bar. At least you didn't drink, even in your dream.

PhoenixJ you are perceptive, my avatar name comes from Jacques Saoutchik who was born in Bessarabia (Belarus/Ukraine) and basically walked to Paris at the end of the 19th century to escape the pogroms so it was his back story as well as the fantastic cars.

Nonsensical I hope ot clears up asap, 11 days seems like too long a time for a cold.

It is oppressively humid and cloudy right now, I would like it to rain but not while I am commuting home.

I dreamed about a flood at an actor named Richard Kind's house in Allentown, PA! I have no idea why him and why Allentown!

At this rate you'll probably beat him by a mile!

Sorry--I feel really cutting and mean for saying that. His family is gone; his career is gone; his good name is gone. He must be really down.

I hope this is his rock bottom and there's a divine intervention and he turns his life around and accepts responsibility for his actions.

Just checking in. Day 2 for me, and all is well. Trying new meds for pain after seeing a new neurosurgeon and new neurologist. If this med works, it will actually give me a diagnosis after five years of constant, unremitting, chronic jaw/neck/shoulder pain and migraines, and so many doctors I couldn't even begin to name them all.

It would be such a relief to at least know what this is (if the drugs work, it will confirm Hemicrania Continua, a very rare and often misdiagnosed headache disorder). Keep fingers crossed for me Weekenders!

Day 5
Doing well.
Nice weather helps.
Got some healthy lunch foods for the weekend.
Still feeling unproductive because all I want to do is study, and my room is a mess and I haven't been going to meetings like I'd like to.

Two tests so far this semester, 80% and 86%. I'm shooting for a 90% on Monday :P

When I was graduating from high school in the late 70s, everybody on earth knew every lyric of The Stranger!

By the time he did "Allentown," not so much.

Hey, fellow weekenders! Glad to see you all

Getting ready for a quiet Friday night - I work my pt job tomorrow & Sunday so it helps me stay sober and busy. So it'll be dinner & something stupid on tv to make fun of, before hopefully getting to sleep early. Man, I used to dread the weekends....now I enjoy it!

A single woot for finishing a creditable 2nd place at Crazy Golf.Best wishes to Tiger Woods, not sure if he is one of us but I am an admirer of what he has achieved.

I found out that a friend of mine paid 1,000 for a bonsai tree this week which sounds absurd to me.

Bedtime for me in London. For those of you who still have Friday evening ahead of you don't let tonight be another faceplant Friday, ignore that insidious little voice and wake up hangover free tomorrow.

You've tried a cool mist humidifier with Vick's?
This long and this time of year, it may be allergies.
Take benedryl at night so you can sleep.

We broke a heat record today. 34c. Now a big thunder storm is rolling in. Hope we don't end up looking like London.

Welcome to the thread Time2Rise!

I hope everyone made it through Friday night.

34C (93F) that is very warm. London is uncomfortable above 30C as it is not built to cope.

I took a rare run west this morning down to Holborn. The road beneath the bridge used to be the River Fleet, most famous of the lost rivers of London (it runs underground now).
