It's me birthday today.

I was sitting in the pub last night and my mate turned up with a ticket
for me to go to the RBL New Year's Eve party (Royal British Legion).
After a quick visit home to get suited and booted, off we went to the
Legion.

Had a whale of a time with a bunch of his military and ex-military mates
and ended up extremely drunk. So much so that I slipped and fell in the
mud while walking (staggering?) home (:-)). My tux is now lying in a
muddy heap in the corner.

That's the last time I play drinking games with soldiers.

<note to self>Time to visit the dry cleaners</note to self>

Why does my head hurt so much?

The fluid that normally surrounds your brain is depleted. Now your brain
is like a pinball pinging around every time you move in the slightest.
Bright lights will intensify the headache, as will even the softest
noise will sound like a freight train. Your CNS is in shock, and you
likely are getting jittery. The littlest movement gets your attention,
and all you want is to sleep. You can't though. Recommendation: Hair of
the Dog.

Well, I'm drinking a big mug of coffee laced with scotch at present and
shortly I'll be toddling off to the pub for just that exact purpose. :-)

I feel a couple of bottles of red wine coming on.

I seem to recall lying in the middle of the road wishing all who passed
by a happy new year. Perhaps it's my imagination?

I was chatting to a mate of mine earlier. He was telling me his mum and
dad were walking home last night. They told him they saw some drunk bloke
lying in the middle of the road.

Wonder who it was.

I'm going to be on 'zombie' patrol, just in case. If nothing goes down,
I suppose I could hop on a airplane after Christmas 2012 and before
2013. I have not gone out on New Years Eve in many years, it would be

I was telling him today how comfortable the wet tarmac was.

The 'mud' I slipped in was mostly comprised of duck shit, as it was right
on the bank of a large pond inhabited by mallards. I walked past there
earlier.

Ever seen a duckshit angel?

Apparently so. Lots of details are coming back to me, mate. My Zippo
wouldn't light (out of juice) and I was dying for a smoke. as I lay in
the road I was asking passers-by if they had a light. Eventually some
random, lonesome girl leaned down and gave me a light. Dontcha just love
good Samaritans?

If only I'd thought about that at the time. It's been raining incessantly
since this afternoon. Unlikely that it's still there.

The ducks are, though.

I knew because you told me. We discussed him way back last year
sometime. I said he was one of my all-time favorites too. His birthday
is January 3rd! He was also a Capricorn. [g]

What is your Rx exactly? I've never heard of it.
Commonly found on a doctor's prescription. A "hair of the dog" can
be a great remedy for a hangover.
I'm afraid to ask, but will anyway.. what is a "hair of the dog"
remedy for a hangover?
LOL ... "A hair of the dog that bit you" - a euphemism for more of the
same (or more drink!) The best cure for sobriety is alcohol!
yeah? I've never been drunk, so didn't know! LOL

hmmm this part is the only thing that really makes any viable sense to me
since I was hypoglycemic for nearly 20+ yrs:
"From the perspective of sugar metabolism, alcohol may cause a blood sugar
spike, resulting in a hypoglycemic awakening "hangover".[citation needed]
Finishing the drink left on the counter might be the quickest way to ingest
more calories that quickly convert to 'sugar' to raise the body's blood
sugar, as well lifting the fainting and headaches often associated with low
blood sugar."

I've had to consume food to stop a headache as a result of hypoglycemia, but
have never been drunk, so had no idea of the similarity.

I think everyone should at least get drunk and stay the night in the
"drunk tank" at the local constabulary at least once! Its an eye-opener
at worse, and could be downright fun at best!

I don't have to put that one on my "bucket list".

Never been there meself, but my older brother was held overnight in
Glasgow and later fined on the charge of 'Drunk and disorderly' when he
was eighteen.

They arrested him and shoved into a police box (think Doctor Who's Tardis)
and later loaded into a police van and taken to the bridewell.

I think I'll have to pass on that... I'm rarely ever drinking and have
only been drunk a handful of times. No, It has nothing to do with any
religious beliefs-- I just don't enjoy alcohol that much. I have enough
fun with constant migraines.. Don't really need the hangover effect.

Not recently. Last summer. I still have the majority of it. I bought it
mostly for a discussion piece. And! It makes great fuel in an

Fuck me!!!! How many gallons (or is it barrels?) of the stuff did you
actually get?

At one time, a mate of mine had a relative who ran a still in Ireland.
Every time he went over there, he'd come back carrying a few litres. I
often helped him drink it- good old poitín (pronounced pot-cheen).

I provided a power source for someone, they paid me in several drums of
white lightning and they paid for the parts and the spiffy new tools I
required. I wasn't sure what it was that I was providing power too,
having never actually seen one of these.. "stills" before. Don't get me
wrong, I sort of suspected what it might be and do based on the
electrical requirements it has, but.. I'm not going to go being nosy.
lol.

The electrical work itself is sound and safe; even if his gizmo probably
isn't really legal.

I have enough
fun with constant migraines.. Don't really need the hangover effect.
Last year sometime my husband opened a bottle of champagne and poured me
a small glass of it. I think I took maybe 3 sips of it and maybe 5 mins
later I started to get a horrible headache that was so bad I had to go
lay down and hold my head crying from the pain. I had managed to take
some ibuprofen on my way to laying down, tho. It took about 25 or 30
mins for it to kick in before the headache finally subsided.

I don't get headaches very often, but will get a tension or sinus
headache occasionally, and also every now and then I will get a cluster
headache. Those will put me out of commission in the same way that
champagne headache did.

I've heard that cluster headaches are a similar pain level to
migraines... I feel for you getting those. yuk!

They're close.. but not quite...

A migraine feels like somebody in your head on one side banging on pipes
with a ball peen hammer. Light/sound/temperature bother you. It increases
the pounding. Excedrin for migraines (pick one) doesn't work. They can
last for days. Making you puke on multiple occasions; You feel better for
a few minutes in a nice cold sweat over the toilet. It's not stress or
tension (I've had those too), it's a migraine.. Ruins my whole day and
possibly another day or two as I've noticed the recovery time isn't what
it used to be.

Odd story: Twenty-odd years ago, I was sitting watching the TV one night
and began getting some kind of visual disturbance. The whole upper right
quarter of my field of vision became blurred and then began to sparkle in
various colours. This soon passed (by 'soon', I mean within an hour FYI :-
)) to be followed by an acute headache, which lasted for about an hour.

This happened a few times over the next month or so, so I decided it was
time to visit my GP. He diagnosed what I expected him to- migraine. He
gave me a prescription for a drug called 'Migril' (I think) and sent me
on my merry way, with instructions to take one or two of the pills every
time I experienced the visual disturbances, as it was the harbinger of
one of these headaches.

Months, possibly a year, went by and no sparkly blurriness ever
appeared.The pills went to the back of a drawer and were promptly
forgotten about. Then, one day, the Big One struck.

I got visual disturbances! YAY! Rummage around in all the cupboards, find
the pills, take a couple.

I had never experienced anything like it. Fuck, it hit me like a
sledgehammer. So bad, in fact, that I had to do the lying down in a
darkened room rigmarole. Couldn't move a finger while lying on my side
with my eyes shut or the pain got worse (how the fuck could it get worse
than it already is? I wondered) and my stomach churned. I really feared
I'd do a technicolor yawn all over myself and the bed and just end up
lying in it, immobile, as there was no way I could do anything to prevent
it. I actually feared I was dying.

I must've fallen asleep, thankfully, because I returned to consciousness
of my surroundings a couple of hours later (I won't say 'awoke' as I may
not have actually slept- perhaps I was dead, who knows?).

After that, I kept the pills about my person all the time- once bitten,
twice shy, I thought. Every time I felt the blurry-sparklies coming on,
the blister pack came out and I popped a couple of the Migril. I ran out
probably two years after I had first experienced any symptoms. Forgot to
get the prescription refilled.

Then one day, pill-less, the visual disturbances came on. Fuck, I was
frightened! I had no wish to go through what had happened on the day of
the Big One. The visual disturbance faded and I braced myself.

Then, it happened! Nothing! Nada, zilch, niente!

Ever since then, I'll occasionally get the twinkly blind spot, but no
headache to follow.

Ever.

Fucking weird, eh?

than it already is? I wondered) and my stomach churned. I really feared
I'd do a technicolor yawn all over myself and the bed and just end up
lying in it, immobile, as there was no way I could do anything to prevent
it. I actually feared I was dying.
I must've fallen asleep, thankfully, because I returned to consciousness
of my surroundings a couple of hours later (I won't say 'awoke' as I may
not have actually slept- perhaps I was dead, who knows?).
After that, I kept the pills about my person all the time- once bitten,
twice shy, I thought. Every time I felt the blurry-sparklies coming on,
the blister pack came out and I popped a couple of the Migril. I ran out
probably two years after I had first experienced any symptoms. Forgot to
get the prescription refilled.
Then one day, pill-less, the visual disturbances came on. Fuck, I was
frightened! I had no wish to go through what had happened on the day of
the Big One. The visual disturbance faded and I braced myself.
Then, it happened! Nothing! Nada, zilch, niente!
Ever since then, I'll occasionally get the twinkly blind spot, but no
headache to follow.
Ever.
Fucking weird, eh?
My twice-ex girlfriend gets them bad, including the aurora's <sp>
(visual disturbances). For her, Maxalt (Rizatriptan) worked if she took
it soon enough. Sounds similar to your experience, if she didn't take at
the first sign of a migraine she was doomed to a 2-3 day migraine. I
felt so helpless, I knew it must be awful. I never had one.

A migraine feels like somebody in your head on one side banging on
pipes with a ball peen hammer. Light/sound/temperature bother you. It
increases the pounding. Excedrin for migraines (pick one) doesn't
work. They can last for days. Making you puke on multiple occasions;
You feel better for a few minutes in a nice cold sweat over the
toilet. It's not stress or tension (I've had those too), it's a
migraine.. Ruins my whole day and possibly another day or two as I've
noticed the recovery time isn't what it used to be.
Have you tried Maxalt?
Yep. It doesn't kill the migraines either, just puts me in a foggy like
state that is very strange.

That's the only one I know of for migraines. That's what my ex-g/f used.

In my experience with 'regular' headaches, aspirin works best. I've
found that opiate-based drugs do nothing for them.

Have you seen a chiropractic doctor? Often times a nerve is 'out of
whack' on the cervical spine, and they claim (in the literature I read @
my chiropractic Dr.) that is the cause for many people's migraines.

Like shit. I walked out mid-session last time, she's tying to handle too
many patients at once. I don't like being treated like chattel. After I
did the roller bed and the TENS machine, they made me go back to the
waiting room for my adjustments. After 5 minutes of being ignored, I
left.

Hopefully it was because of the 'Holiday' hours, and it won't be a
fucking zoo the next time I return.

yeah .. I had a similar experience myself during the holidays. I just
try to go when it's not a busy time of the day.

Opiates don't seem to kill pain as much as offer a pleasant distraction.

One of the words Chiros like to toss out is "subluxation".
My ex father-in-law was a pyro-quacktic, as we used to say.

I've heard that cluster headaches are a similar pain level to
migraines... I feel for you getting those. yuk!
They're close.. but not quite...

I've been awakened from a sound sleep with a cluster headache probably 4
or 5 times. The pain is as if someone is trying to stab one of your
eyes out... is the best comparison. It's always centered behind one eye
radiating outward and all I can do is clutch my head and put pressure on
it. If I feel one coming on, I can take ibuprofen and if I caught it in
time the cluster will subside. If I didn't catch it in time the cluster
will go full tilt pain THEN ease up about 20 minutes later.

Yep. They aren't migraines. Migraines pain level is about... 8x-10x
worse than what you've experienced with those. You can reach the point
where you wish you were dead. Unconcious by any possible means so it
doesn't hurt anymore.

The only time I experienced that much pain was when my shoulder was
dislocated (too many times to count). I know what you mean about just
wanting to pass-out or die when pain is 10+ on the scale.

Yep, bright sunny start to the new year as of around nine
this morning, expected to get warmer this afternoon.
It's already 70 now. http://bit.ly/uOrfnQ

Thanks for asking, Jenn - we've had a great day today! :-)

Daughter, son-in-law and little Hattie came this morning and Mrs BD cooked a
great turkey roast with all the trimmings!

They've just headed off home, with my daughter driving. SIL had enjoyed the
Port I supplied, much to her displeasure. Oops! ;-)

You have a good one too.

Hugs,

David
