What I’m reading June 2018

I paged through some of my photography books. Boy, I should’ve read them many years ago as it may have saved me a lot of trial and error in the early days. Then again by doing things what I did learn along the way probably was remembered better than just reading it.

What I’m reading May 2018

Even though I have so many books to get to on my own bookshelf, I went to the library to take a photo for the camera club’s theme of “pathways” because I feel books offer up pathways to the world; I ended up coming home with 3 books. Maybe after I’ve played catch up for a while after going so many years without making the time to read novels I’ll get to some newer titles- or at least throw some in now and then.

Migraines


migraineAfter being hit with a doozie this week, and a friend asking for migraine info I decided just to put it all in one place here on my blog where I can add to it as I remember things or try something new.

This week I was reminded just how bad a migraine could be, bringing my day to a screeching halt to retreat into the dark bedroom. I am SO thankful they don’t get me like that much anymore. Mine used to be a lot more often – like double digits per month. My day started with my head feeling a little off, but instead of a slow progression across the left side of my head, the migraine hit fast and furious from the back left thru the left side into my left temple and eye- it even threw in some nausea. The Imitrex that usually helps. Didn’t.

Migraines are a chemical change in the brain and are often hereditary.  A migraine brain basically overreacts to stimuli and blood vessels contract. On the DNA test I did, it did say I was more likely to have them but since several people in my family suffered from them and I’d already been plagued with them for years, this wasn’t new news.  Continue reading

What I learned I needed or would have done differntly with my shoulder surgery -at one month.

If you or someone you know isn’t going thru shoulder problems just skip this post as it will probably be of little interest to you.

This post is about what I really needed, what was nice to have and what I would have done differently. Posting this at 1 month post-op.  My surgery was on my dominant right arm and what I’m writing only applies to what I personally learned. I’ve realized short hair, flat chested folks would likely have an easier time with shoulder surgery.  On a positive note, I will say I think this is the first time I’ve actually had fingernails past my fingertips on all 5 fingers at one time from not using my right arm as much. 🙂

For better, for worse -even the snoring.

We call it survival of the sleepiest. I am like a different person if I don’t get good sleep. My husband snores- loudly and a lot. All these tips and items could also be used when a spouse has a cold and can’t quit coughing or for night shift workers.

“Laugh and the world laughs with you; snore and you sleep alone”
