Scott 41 South Australia
Hi I am new to this game and been having great fun at 4am every morning and a few times during the day just to remind me of the visitor with the hot poker to stick in my eye while I try to sleep. This is my first attack and as everyone else had the run around from the medical fraternity here is South Australia. I have been put on ‘Ergotamine Tartrate tablets’ I don’t know what this is but they don’t seem to have much effect. I also tried the liquid oxygen in water with no affect also. Can anyone recommend anything else? GOING CRAZY
I am also suffering from a spine disease called ‘Ankylosing Spondylitis’ with server pain in my spine and joints and Tinnitus (ringing in the ears from a work accident a few years ago). All my complaints rob me of sleep and I am dopey as shit all day. Shit does happen and it all is heading my way.
I try not to complain to the family because I know they don’t want to know and it drives them away. I need some sympathy (hope to get it from you guys).
But I must keep laughing and cracking jokes while my head is cracking.
A flight attendant friend of mine and her boyfriend had been playing a little game, where they would hide condoms in each other's pockets, briefcases, lunches etc., to have them revealed at unexpected times.
One morning, shortly after taking off on a 3 hour flight, the flight attendant was asked for aspirin, by a man with a headache. Recalling the packet of aspirin she usually kept in her left pocket, she took it out, placed it on the man's fold out table, and turned to pour him a glass of water.
When she turned around again, the man was staring, mouth open, at the packet before him. He managed to stammer, "Sorry Miss, I really DO have a headache." On discovering her mistake, she turned several shades of red, and scurried off to hide in the crew cabin.
Eventually, she had to resume her duties, and on each pass down the aisle, she got a wink and a smile from the man with the headache. True story
