I Did it.
Yesterday, I waited and waited for the beast to rear its ugly head and when it finally started to, I ran up stairs, reached in the ice box, and pulled out the bleu cheese. I stuck a big chunk of it under my tongue, went back downstairs and grabbed the cider vinegar (which was sitting on my dresser.) I rubbed the crap all over chest,neck, arms, back - escalated from a 3 to a five, started gagging on the bleu cheese now melting in my mouth. Wiped more vinegar on my chest, heaved, 5 to a 7, spilled the vinegar on my rug in my bedroom, stumbled to the bathroom, gagging badly, poured the vinegar over my head, 7 to a full blown ten!!! Couldn't stand it no more - started losing my intestines - puked so hard I thought my head would explode! I sat on the floor, stinking of vinegar with a full blown 10, with a horrible taste in my mouth. I felt like I could so easily die. I wanted to for an hour of pure hell.
Needless to say, it did not work.
After the episode, I jumped in the shower and washed off the gross concoction. When I was finished - I had forgotten that I spilled the vinegar in my bedroom and now it stinks!!! After I tried and failed - I once again felt miserable. Talk about a super-drag!
I've had two hardcore attacks since midnight - beings I was dumb enough to try and get some sleep. I got two and a half hours, which is better than nothing I guess. I'm gonna go back on my doctor calling mission today - trying to find someone who might be worth a damn.
I did have a bright spot yesterday afternoon; I got a totally unexpected phone call. When I first heard the person talk - I knew exactly who it was. Riccardo!
He called me from Italy to wish me a happy birthday - two days early. I couldn't believe it! I had a hard time understanding him, but was overjoyed that he would even make the attempt to call me.
Thanks Riccardo - You made my day!!!
Now I just have to get through tomorrow without succumbing to the temptation of swinging from the rafters. I know for most people it is probably no big deal - but for me, the day of 4/20 is cursed. I won't even go into it. Lets just say if there is one day I would like to skip - it is tomorrow. If it weren't for the CH attacks, I might try to just stay in bed and not even face the world tomorrow. Oh well, I won't go into it.
Gonna call the doc today and see if I can get some more Vicoprofen. It does more than the Ultram - especially for shadowing. I just had to stop taking it for a few days - as I was building up a tolerance to it.
Guess I won't be trying the bleu cheese thing again (not after THAT incident.) It just makes me jealous when something works for others, yet won't work for me. I want this whole mess to be over with - and soon. It would be nice to have my life back, two and a half years later!!!
I'm gonna go. I've probably already done enough damage for one day. If I don't post tomorrow, just know that I am having a very bummed day.
