If it wasn’t such a mouthful I would be all over that! Daine is one of my fav character out of the Tortall verse… I am seriously considering Rosethorn though.
Better Veralidaine than Sandrilene or Winnamine. Of course you could always go with Rosie, Alianne, or Keladry. :) Also Great Mother Goddess could be really fun.
This Anna Kendrick Little Mermaid SNL sketch is impossible to find (NBC ran into some legal issues with Disney)… watch while you can!
Sometimes even Mel gets the zoomies!
no matter how sad I am this never fails to make me laugh
When you talk to Gawyn, he does this exact thing. It’s what hubby calls, “You want me to eat your face? Okay!” Because Gawyn will literally launch himself at your face. Teeth first. Right for the nose. Out of love. And hunger for faces.
This is like 100% Mellys reaction when you ask her if she wants her dindin. omfgYESMOMLETMELOVEYOUWITHMYCLAWS
It took me nearly 24 hours after watching DoS to realize that Tauriel was Kate from Lost. Can’t wait till the last movies comes out. LotR/Hobbit party at my house man. Two day party of elves, dwarfs, hobbits and orlando bloom.
I have chronic migraine and I'm in high school. My school is so frustrating. They don't take it seriously and act like I miss 17 days of school in the first semester alone just for fun. When I get a migraine during school hours I have to go to the nurses office, where they just tell me to lay down and "sleep it off." They don't understand that I need to go home, take my meds, and lock myself in a dark room. I've puked in there more times than necessary because of their "sleep it off" strategy.
AHHHH. Not cool not cool not cool!!!
I suggest getting a note from your doctor for the nurses office explaining that you have a disease with severe symptoms, and outlining your needs.
Ah jeez, I got migraine in uni… I don’t really have any other tips…
How about you guys? Highschool Migraineurs… ASSEMBLE!
High school was a long time ago but maybe I can help. We could only miss four days and trust me I missed more than that. Back then they wanted me to wait in the bright office for my mom to get me (before I was 16) and after I had to wait while they called my mom to make sure it was okay. Absolutely get a doctors note saying that you need to take your medication Immediately (make sure it says immediately or they won’t take it seriously/may send you back to class saying it’s not an emergency you don’t need the meds) [make copies of the note. one to the office, one to the nurse, one to your teachers and keep a few in your backpack. date that shit when you gave each one a note so they won’t say they didn’t get it/you’ll have extras], get you mom or dad (whoever will throw the biggest hissy fit at the office. honestly. it’ll help if the doctors note doesn’t do it.) and have them come up and demand why you weren’t let into a dark room/allowed meds/allowed to go home. It’ll help if you cry here. Really.
If none of this works you can send a notarized letter of advice from your doctor saying that not allowing immediate treatment will cause you bodily harm, ect and that the school will be held responsible to any side effects or changes in your condition. Obviously this should be a last resort thing but it will put a fire under their butts.
Honestly my mother threw down hell the first time she was called to get me. They had made me wait three hours before I was “allowed” to call her, I’d vomited nine times and they weren’t allowing me access to my medication. I went to the hospital dehydrated and in intense pain because I was not allowed my medication when it could have helped. My mother drove me to school and told me to go to class while she went into the office. The next day I was allowed to carry my medicine and my mother was called as soon as I said I needed to go home. I didn’t have any problems after that.
Sometimes I stayed at school with a migraine because I couldn’t have more than four absences but my teachers were really understanding. They let me nap in the back of class as long as I made up the work later, go to the bathroom if I needed to without asking and they worked with me to make up work. Some teachers were less understanding but once I explained that I wasn’t going to the bathroom for fun but to projectile vomit, but I’d be more than happy to do it in the middle of the classroom instead if they wouldn’t excuse me to go, they didn’t have a problem with me leaving and coming back. My senior year I even had 3/4 teachers that would mark me as there if I came and explained that I needed to go home sick so I wouldn’t miss the over four days.
I wish you luck because high school is shit. I may have also been a little shit in high school. :)
How do you feel about rescue drugs? I was prescribed Lortab last august to use after my triptan failed (as a way out of going to the hospital), but the only time I ever tried it, it made me puke before it had a chance to work at all. I even forced a few crackers into myself to avoid taking it on an empty stomach! Blech. I'm scared to try it again, but I want to have options!
In migraine vernacular, the triptan is technically your rescue medication, also known as your migraine abortive. Lortab is just a mix of acetaminophen (Tylenol) and the opioid hydrocodone, so it’s just a pain med :)
(I think I know what you’re getting at here though.)
When my triptans have failed, I’ve puked up other meds I’ve tried to take too (naproxen sodium aka Aleve), but it only happened once. It was really scary when the situation arose again because I remembered that I had puked it up the first time, but I decided to give it another shot and I actually was able to keep it down fine. I’ve taken it many times since then without a problem, but I still remember that first time vomiting it up! (This is my personal story, take from it what you will. Naproxen is a different pain med than Lortab.)
During a migraine our nausea and vomiting part of our brain stem is activated by inflammation, so your vomiting could have been from your brain stem or your med. You would be the best judge of that! There is nothing wrong with going to your doctor and asking for a different pain medication if that one isn’t working for you. There are a lot of opioid medications out there and your doctor can pick the one that is best for you based on your medical history :)
My doctor has me use phenagren for nausea when i get a migraine, it usually allows me to take the other migraine medications and keep them down. I usually cocktail my migraine meds: phenaren for nausea, hydrocodone for pain, and imitrex for the migraine. Usually taken together, with a dark quiet room will work. Not always. But ask your doc about Phenagren (and its safe enough to take while pregnant)
Look at this genius over here :D Anti-nausea meds, of course! (D’oh! I feel like a dummy for forgetting about those.)
If you take Phenagren a lot though you can become used to it and it will be ineffective. I can’t take Fiorcet with codine because the codine makes me so so so sick. Green vomit sick. It could be that you had a reaction to the Hydrocodone and you could look at alternate pain meds. (It sounds like you had a reaction to the hydrocone, but if you’ve taken it before and everything was fine then it could have been a one time thing and you were going to throw up anyways)
