    Tinnitus won't let me sleep. It's been super bad 24/7 this week. Then I can't sleep..then it gets worse. It's an awful cycle.

      If buying a new thing isn't in the budget right now, but you already have a television or radio, you could try having that on very low. I do that and it helps. Also remember to eat regularly.

      @oregano mine can't be drowned out past a certain point I have tried. It's just gotten bad recently due to stress probably and a chronic illness flare up. Thank you for the suggestion though.

      I'm not trying to drown the sound out. It's a high pitched thing, for years, unceasing. The tv music just gives a little something else to think about. Rather than that high pitch....which is not at all pleasant or fun to consider.

    IT was nice over here. I like spring and fall.
  7. GrownupGirl
    It's fall, but it was really hot today. But it won't be long before everyone complains about it being too cold. People love to complain.

    Hoping what someone said is just empty boasting.

      Who is 'everyone'? And what would be their motivation for lying?

    Had my medical procedure today. I was anxious and had bad dreams but I am fine now.

    I plan on starting a blog series on ABA & plan on having my first post up today: (should’ve been the day before yester’) ABA is pretty bad.

      You mention time constraints, not meeting your own expectations, feeling rushed or under pressure often.

      Yeah, I guess I have issues with time keeping and the like, or maybe it’s just ongoing guilt over wasting so much of my teenage and adult life in the past. Either way, I have indeed finished my draft, I’ll be proof-reading and uploading it later this afternoon.

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

      Ha, I have a friend like that. Had her house decorated in fall leaves on the 1st of Sept when it was still 100F. I'm more excited about hiking weather, football, Navratri and Halloween :)

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

    2. Bibliophile715
      @Raggamuffin I take Rizatriptan sometimes, but only when they're active and they don't instantly make my migraines go away. Some I've had last for months and if they get too bad I have to go to the ER for meds. Thanks though.

    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.

    The world is against me
    1. Gerontius
      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.
