    First cold front of the season on the first day of Fall. Couldn't be more perfect. So begins my favorite season...

    I've gotten some migraine headaches this week from noise sensitivity. I'm not necessarily sure why but things sound louder than typical.

      Try Triptan medication. In UK you can order it without a prescription. I've recommended it to 4 people and each of them (myself included) found they nullify a migraine very quickly.

    If I win the Powerball jackpot (not likely), I will change my name and face and move to a castle with a personal army. Life goals!

      Word of advice: Avoid any girls in pigtails from Kansas with Cairn Terriers at all costs.

      But employing flying monkeys could be beneficial.

      Depression is against you, and (likely) circumstances where you're at. Though I do not wish to invalidate the feelings you're experiencing, I'd like you to know that there's a very likely chance things will improve.

      I realized that the world is against me long ago, and that along with environmental and societal decay convinced me that I had to live away from civilization as a hermit.

    Getting short and intense tooth ache since this root canal. It's like a 5-10 minute migraine in my tooth. Horrendous.

      Might be a sign of bruxism. When you grind your teeth in your sleep. Can be quite painful and impact a section of your jaw and not just a single tooth .

      Simple way to stop the pain over a few days is to wear a mouth guard specifically for bruxism to keep your upper and lower teeth from touching each other.

    I unintentionally hurt a friend. I need to break away for a while.
    1. Gerontius
      If you can apologize then "a while" may not be as long as you think. Tough skill for us to learn as a lot of times we dont know if the other person accepts the apologies.

    So, Montreal. One of my favorite cities. My mother was born there, at Hôtel Dieu, I believe. Still have some relatives in Iberville. Wanted to see a Habs game at the old Forum, but never made it.

      A week or two after I get back I will have it towed up there and placed on the blocks.

    Even though I was born in the US, I feel more like I am English.

      I wonder if this is common for Aspies. I look at England as the home of my culture.

      That would be interesting to find out. I am primarily of Anglo descent with some Cherokee in my bloodline.

      That's cool (and a good conversation starter.)
      My family has a British last name & held English social habits until the 1970s...pretty sure there is a strong Anglo influence. Also, I look very English/old-school American.

      @Markness Thanks friend; actually you & a few others helped by example.
      If I don't get this stuff under control I'll end up disabled from it or dead. Thought I was going to die last summer. That isn't the plan. So time to see about fixing it.

      I felt that way as well. Society really needs to take mental health more seriously.

      I had to cut a staph infection out of my stomach with a match, a tin of black-salve, and the needle off the old windup victrola. This is why I'm worried that due to depression & lack of function I'm going to end up dead.
      Got to fix this, now.

    Rode 9 miles on a 65-year-old British roadster bicycle at around midnight last night. Restoration is almost done.
