levels are going down (according to shari shima, weather caster) and
the vog is rolling out. Nausea is still kind of off and on. At the
prodding of mom, I did a little research and found that maybe I have a
PMS induced migraine.
Personally, I always thought that migraines were a bunch of bs. I
figured you either have a headache or you don't. Migraine was like a
fancy word to describe it to get attention.
The more I read about it though, the more likely it seems. I'm
looking at a book by readers digest called "fight back with food;
using nutrition to heal what ails you" and it describes migraine as a
"throbbing headache" with early warning signs including "nausea,
weakness, sensitivity to light and sound". It can even last up to
three days, untreated.
Causes include "caffeine withdrawls, dehydration, stress, hormones,
consumption of foods with certain chemicals." I hope I'm not allergic
to lakerol. Licorice is the love of my life! I am also going to
continue my coffee habit- it looks like cutting caffeine was the
It goes on to recommend foods with magnesium (avocados, rice, winter
melon) for pain, riboflavin (mushroom, poultry, quinoa) for energy,
and Ginger for nausea.
I guess that's a start.
We'll see just how long this lasts. So far it's been a week of
general blahhness. Hopefuly this clears up before class starts
Also, do I sound hypochondriac-ish? I try not to be. Because being
sick is a fuckarow.
Today I went to imageworks in kaimuki to pick up some photo supplies.
I figure better now than when school starts and there's a rush of
people. I got some d76, dektol, 100 sheets of 8x10" ilford pearl rc,
10 sheets 11x14" ilford pearl rc, and three rolls of ilford hp5 35mm
400iso. That should hold me for a while. The lady who works there
was like "THANK YOU FOR BEING EARLY!".
I can't wait to get back to the darkroom.
Later, I spent some time with layne. We had coffee (actually, I had
coffee. He had chai :9 ) and watched harold and kumar go to white
castle. Then we watched the jackass movie. Is it messd up that
watching other peole suffer made me laugh? I think it should be called
dumbass instead of jackass.
Speaking of bad movies, last weds layne and I watched pulse 1, 2, &
3. What a load of crap. The signal was 1000000 times better than
those movies. And 2 & 3 were obviously shot on a green screen because
the lighting was so off! I think we laughed more than one is supposed
to in a scary movie! In all honesty, I didn't find it scary at all
(I've seen some scary stuff before- the strangers made me jump a
little and the first time I watched ju-on I ran out of my house after
the lady came out from under the blanket) and there were waaaaaay too
many plot holes. Oh well, at least I can say I've seen a trilogy of
horror movies in one night. How many people can say that?
Bye for now.
I'll post again later, from a real computer.
(I'm on my itouch now posting via gmail. I love blogger because I
barely have to go to the page- I'm on email all day at work anyway so
it's super easy to update. And I can do a lot of quick updates
without having to log in.)
