  • Sometimes when I have a headache that just won't go away, I don't care if I cave. Tylenol happens my man.

    • I can't remember the last time I took meds for anything. Really if I didn't have dodgeball tonight I think I would have not taken anything. But instead I took them... I dunno I feel cheated- I put chemicals in my body that promised to make me feel better and they did nothing. I've always been anti med- I hate the idea of pills. I grew up with a mom who is a pharmacy technician so everything growing up could be fixed by a pill. I hate that I gave in. And her theory was wrong- meds don't fix anything unless you placebo yourself into thinking they will. Probably why the 5 tylynol I took didn't do anything- I didn't think they would.

          My mom isn't a pharm tech, but she could have been with all the stuff she's taken in her life. Oh no, I completely understand where you're coming from with feeling like you cheated. I take them with the headaches because I'm like a big huge baby about headaches. They get so bad sometimes that I want to cry. While I don't get them very often to begin with, I haven't really had any lately that have made me feel that way. If they don't work, I'd say find another way to get through it.

          • Was the dodgeball worth it? If yes, good for pushing through. If no, think about listening to your body when it is tuckered out/hurt.
            I know you love playing, so if it was the physical equivalent of 'a piece of chocolate cake because it just tastes go good, darn it, and I'm going for it', that's cool. But if it was like the 'office birthday party for Bob, who you hardly ever talk to but now you MUST have a piece of cake to celebrate his 47th', well, think again, Ecks.
            Just as we shouldn't over-feed, we shouldn't over-work.

            • Dodgeball was definitely worth it. Puking this morning... not so much. Who has two thumbs and stayed home from work sick today *points at self with thumbs* this guy!... wasn't pretty but now I know. If I'm going to play dodgy with a messed up ankle I do it drug free. Not like the meds worked anyways and even if they did they only tell my brain to ignore the pain and don't actually make the ankle heal faster.

                  • The ankle will never get better. Injury when I was 9 plus crappy doctor ='s bad situation. It never healed right and has always been a pain point. If I do too much on it, even walking, I find myself unable to put ANY weight on it the next morning. I broke the tibia and fibula in the same leg 3 years after my ankle and they never gave me any issues... something I've come to terms with but I'm really hoping that less weight will at least be easier on my ankle. Still... I knew taking meds for it was a bad idea and I did it. Feeling much better now though with some ginger/mint tea in me (ginger and loose leaf mint in a mug.. tastes awful near the end but damn if it didn't give me the energy and relief my body needed)

                    • Ginger/mint is really good for your stomach . Sorry to read about the ankle problems (my DH has an issue with his too, he had a motorcycle accident when he was 25 and doctor says it's not going to heal; the cartilage is really bad. He has some relief though taking glucosamine sulfate supplement).

                      And about the meds, don't we all do things we know aren't good for us? It's a lesson learned again and you'll think twice next time .

                      • I really sympathise with the dodgy ankle Ecks.

                        I 'just sprained' my ankle in 1988, no one told me of the possibility of ligament damage, I had inappropriate and not enough physiotherapy, and I still have a lot of trouble with that ankle today and it has been assessed at only 85% function. It is often painful and is a big part of my weight gain - which is why swimming is such a godsend.

                            I try my best. Takes a lot to get under my skin. Sometimes I think I'm almost too oblivious as to what's going on.

                            Yesterday.

                            Breakfast: Steak, coconut milk shake

                            Post breakfast ralph- not sure how much of it I held down.

                            Went home sick (as you've already read).

                            Ginger mint tea (loose leaf mint, chipped up ginger root, hot water), followed by nap, followed by another tea and a small bowl of pork rinds.

                            Round 3 o'clock my body was starting to tell me "hey I puked up the tylonol can I get some nourishment over here??" to which I replied "yes! Have a steak!"... and some chocolate! Woo! and that stayed down well.

                            Like 2 hours later I was hungry all over again. Hit dinner with a buddy of mine at a pub/restaurant called "Chicago".

                            Dinner (at the restaurant): 2 Chicken breasts topped with a mushroom alfredo white wine sauce and a big salad on the side. Skipped the green beans on the side of that.

                            Eve- more chocolate.

                            Today!

                            Breakfast- 4 slices of bacon, coconut milk shake, regular supplements

                            Lunch- Steak and 2 cups of veggies

                            Dinner- 1 chicken thigh, some chicken wings, big ass salad.

                            I'm feelin so much better today though debating not swimming tonight... Body has definitely been teling me this week to slow down. I still have 3 hours to decide if I'm gonna go or not.
