    Ever have an ingrown hair or pimple in your nostril? I have one far up and it’s driving me bonkers

    That sounds painful! Hopefully it goes away soon.

    I was having my biweekly meeting with Fry’s teachers. At the end he barged in just in a t-shirt, proudly saying that he was done pooping.

    I wonder how often this happens for them.

    Shot #1 today! Thank goodness Canada is finally letting the masses get it. We are in a horrible third wave here.

    I had a weird sleep paralysis dream last night, complete with intruder/getting attacked in it. I don’t remember ever having sleep paralysis before so it was super weird. Now I’ve felt off all day. J said I was super restless and annoying so he went out to the couch. Like sorry I was paralyzed and trying to wake you up to save me from the intruder! He was not amused.

    Ohhh I hate those @Imabug1002 . After waking for real, it's fine but horrible in the moment.

    So an hour ago, I fed a baby and was the one to get the hiccups! Mom and Dad laughed at me.

    My sister hasn’t been up to visit since Christmas 2019 so my mom hasn’t seen her in all that time. She was finally able to get vaccinated and gets her second shot this week. We’ve been scheming to surprise our mom so she’s driving up for Memorial Day weekend. She’s going to come to our apartment first and then we’re driving over in my car. My mom is going to freak out and I can’t wait.

    Has anyone had a stomach ulcer? I’ve never had one but yesterday I had so much pain in my upper abdomen that I ended up in the ER. I forgot to ask them how long the pain lasts. Tylenol works for about 5 hours and the doc said to take it every 6 hours. Also, my doctor was Doogie Howser. Seriously, when he walked in my first thought was that this guy is 12. :lol: He was very nice though. I actually really liked the ER staff. I could joke with them.
    But anyways, how long does the pain last??

    Boo I’m sorry. I have no idea, just wishing you healing.

    I have an ulcer. It sucks. Pain meds don't help me though. I take pepto OTC, and I have sucralfate prescribed. It's a powder I mix with water, and it "sticks" to the ulcer to protect it from acid.

    So my regular doctor doesn’t think I have an ulcer?? He thinks it’s just the anti-inflammatory decreasing the mucus protection layer from the stomach acid*. Not sure why he thinks that but he’s switching me from famotidine to protonix. Also, yogurt seems to help the pain so maybe it’s not an ulcer. idk

    Lh, that sucks. I can’t imagine not being able to get rid of the pain. I really thought I was dying yesterday. If this is an ulcer, I might ask about the powder.

    * I just read this back to myself and realize I left out the biggest part. I had been taking ibuprofen for my back pain and that is most likely what caused the inflammation of my stomach lining.

    @virgo I'm "lucky" because pepto works so well for me. It might not kick in right away or even with the first dose, but it stops the big pain. After I get past the initial attack, it's a low grade pain that a couple of days of sucralfate or even metamucil will fix.

    I had a hard time sleeping last night because I had to sleep sitting up in bed. However, I started the protonix this morning and it seems like it might already be working because I’ve been feeling ok most of the day. Fingers crossed because I really need sleep! The past year has just fucking sucked when it comes to my health. I blame the pandemic and can’t wait to go back to the classroom. I never realized how much I move around at school until we weren’t there anymore.

    Gorgeous wedding going on across the park from our swap. It started, and we all stopped to watch the procession. I don't even know these people, and I still cried a little...maybe more than a little.

    I’m picturing what it’s like for those in that wedding, seeing a group of strangers tearing up while clutching their plants, and it’s a pretty funny image.

    Sooooo I wanted to relax by looking at plants and sales in my FB groups. I fucked up and started with the uber rare and expensive page. Now the other pages aren't as fun.

    Rooster was going to Target and asked me to make a list. I put “shirt for Fry size 6” on it. I then get a text asking for what purpose he needs a shirt. Uh, to wear?

    I know what he meant, but the phrasing amused me

    Rooster was drinking coffee and FaceTiming with his brother.
    BIL: “Is that a photo mug with Fry?!”
    Rooster: “Yeah.”
    BIL:“That’s creepy.”
    BIL’s girlftiene in background): “Should we all get (BIL’s name) mugs?!”

    I don’t know why photo mugs are creepy to him. It doesn’t matter, because rooster’s now ordering photo mugs of BIL. I’m thinking when he visits in a few weeks we’ll hide our other mugs so it’s only BIL mugs. We also plan on saying nothing and just casually drinking from them until he notices.

    My in-laws are driving out to visit, it's about a 10 hour drive, but apparently they have been at a stand still behind an accident for over an hour. I'm not even mad, I'm trying to finish up work and there is still some cleaning that needs done because J kept putting it off because "we would have to do it again before they get here anyway." So now it's on him while I'm working but at least I will have a bit of time when I'm done to finish up anything and get changed.

    Are spaghetti straps coming back, or have they been back and I’m just a slow old?

    I’ve seen spaghetti straps over the last few years so I think they came back and stayed.

    I think we’re seeing more people out and more clothing ads so it’s in your face. But boo, why.

    Agreed. I’m too old to try to make it work this time around.
