DMT, you need to chill. Seriously. This ain't good. You need to take a break. I don't know specifically what you do for work, but any chance you can get another job? Life's too short to stay in shitty situations like that for very long.

If you want to move dirt around I could probably hire you for a few weeks in June. But I suspect you could find something better.

Hate to hear things are sucking so bad. Good luck man.

Good advice Ron.

Dingus, One of my uncles was the VP for sales for Texas Instruments an eon or so ago. Talk about a pressure cooker of a job. He, my dad,their other brother and myself were sitting around one evening drinking beers ( I wasn't drinking, I was still a teenager ) and he started laughing and told a tale about throwing up on a 4 star general during a major presentation to the military. He still ended up making the sale and my uncle and this general ended up being friends. Turns out the general had done something similar early in his career and could empathize. Life happens that way.

Why all the advice for scrips? That's a pretty lazy non answer, if you axe me. I guess if you take enough benzos though, you won't be stressed out about your new problem of being an addict. Till you run out, that is.

No sh!t and I TOTALLY agree!!!...

Really fuking DUMB advice being given here in that department...

Pills, booze, weed, etc... is NOT the answer to COPING...

Knowledge, exercise, REST, good diet, maybe some counseling, along those lines are BETTER, "Answers"...

If you ever thought business travel is fun or perhaps 'for you' consider reading this thread...

While presenting to a room full of people this morning, from an audio enabled podium to managers and vp's of a multi-billion $ company I fell I''l excused myself from room (colleagues were f*#king dumb founded) went to restroom and hurled.

Meeting over. :-(

At least I got a full 10-hours in front of them yesterday and today before fading to black.

Now at airport facing 8 hours of travel time to get back to west coast....

OMFG...... I'm falling the f*#k apart.

Seriously.

DMT

don't argue with the universe.
perhaps your vomit is a tear from god.
she's weeping over your above-ground grave.

only cowards maintain an ill path.
you never seemed like the coward type.

f*#k that carreer. ditch it
and then commit to a fast,
shunning all wisdom for forty days;
whilst feasting on dreams of furthering dingus
(and thus furthering dingus' immediate dependents and peers)

it'll all come out, better.
trust me,
i can speak from experience, mate.

Well, if benadryl (what sominex is) works for ya, Ron, all the better. A little sleep doesn't hurt. Now, if you're dosing every night....

I tried the Kava tea somebody rec'd on this thread, actually. Pretty good for getting you relaxed and drowsy. Although, if you are a drinker, it may not be a good idea as you're starting to talk cumulative liver damage.

Locker, We were sitting on the deck of my uncles Galveston beach house. My mother was inside the cabin and she was a devout Baptist. Years before, when we lived in Venezuela, she had threatened to leave my dad because of his drinking. He stopped drinking. So just the fact that my dad was drinking with his brothers was stretching it. If I had been, well, my mother would have made the hurricane that hit galveston in 1900 look like a piddly little storm. She could be fierce.

On another side note. My dad and his brothers were known terrors in Texas. My mother tells the tale about her first date with my dad. My dad took my mother to this dance hall/bar and when they walked in the barman came from behind the bar with a shotgun and pointed it at my dad and told him he wasn't welcome there anymore. Turns out my dad and his brothers had wrecked the place by starting a big fight. My dad and his brothers like to fight, but my dad also liked to dance. He was a jitterbug champion in college. So he convinced the bartender he wasn't there to fight, just to dance and spend money and they let him stay. Probably because my mom was something of a looker. heh heh..

"Well, if benadryl (what sominex is)"...


Close but no cigar!!!...

Benadryl = diphenhydramine

Sominex = Promethazine



But they are both antihistamines...





EDITED:

Sometimes when you get nauseous your Doctor might suggest PHENERGAN...

THAT is what SOMINEX is for us mere mortals...

Basically, PHENERGAN...

In the United States Sominex is marketed by Prestige Brands and has as active ingredient diphenhydramine.[1]

In the UK Actavis UK markets Promethazine hydrochloride under the Sominex brand.[2] Actavis also markets Sominex Herbal as a herbal sleep aid with three active ingredients: Hops, Valerian, and Passion Flower extracts.

Nurple to the durple, Locker my chap! Well, unless you're in the U.K. right now.

"Sominex tablets contain the active ingredient promethazine, which is a type of medicine called a sedating antihistamine.

Promethazine enters the brain in significant quantities and causes drowsiness. It decreases the time taken to fall asleep and increases the depth of sleep. This makes it helpful for the temporary relief of sleeping difficulties, for example if you have difficulty going to sleep or staying asleep because of disturbances to your normal routine."
...


"Benadryl® Allergy contains the histamine-blocker diphenhydramine. ... This product may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions"...





Jebus...

Each is an Antihistimine...

MAYBE(???) they switch back and forth between the drugs???...

Correct!!!...

Pretty much the same...




EDITED:

Plus on some websites it says that Sominex does in fact use the SAME active ingrediant as Benadryl...

Go figure!!!...

LOL!!!...

Diphenhydramine's also good for tardive diskinesia.

it's nice to go all natural without the substances with the long names when time, space, and the universe allow...Sure, if we lived different lives with different paces, maybe it would all work out.

but sometimes it doesn't, and that's why we keep developing science.

Better living through science eh? Whether external engineering with better equipment, or internal chemical engineering with better drugs...

We use the tools around us, regardless of the forms - 'natural' or 'unnatural', to get what we want, achieve our goals, and maybe...just maybe...find a little patch of bliss every now and again.

Personally, I remember hitting a big day of climbing with only a few sips of cold day old coffee...and it's not something I'd prefer to repeat, no matter how natural it'd be to hit the mountain caffeine free! Though I suspect, if I were a Real Climber, I'd be able to get that pep in my step from mere anticipation....

better living through whatever means necessary...nawmean?

Cheers

LS
