Got hit by 2 cars on bike, fainted at work and had a whole no memory thing where I hit my head 2 more times I was told. So 5 in all. Lawsuits all around.

poo poo, I can't even get a CT scan now, because there's concern that it'll literally give me brain cancer.

That'd be a noble death. People who hate bikes always forget that when you're "oh no, I have to drive slightly slower for half a block in a super densely populated community" that's a car that's not on the road trapping you behind them for many, many blocks.

Recently moved to a smallish English style pub and I've never used fryers before outside my own kitchen. When the place was built 10+ years ago, the owners formed the layout around a bar that would sell a little bit of food on the side. It has since become the opposite. Trying to speed up our ticket times and food quality.

Wondering if you guys have had any success pre-breading onion rings. Current process is double dredge of milk + seasoned flour to order. They come out best when each "ring" is a double layered, but that can be too time consuming and frustrating to sort through them all when you have multiple orders with the limited work space.

So I've been given the semi-thumbs up to experiment a bit. Shouldn't be a problem to mix up the batter process if it'll yield better results for about the same money.

Funny story, on my way back from having my MRI just now, I walked since the place is like, 3/4 of a mile down the road. Lady coming out of the fast food place on the corner nearly hits me in a lifted F-350, so I continue to walk at my brisk pace and she rolls down her window to yell at me to "get the gently caress out of the way" and nudges me with the truck.

So I punched her side view mirror off.

Maybe not the best course of action given my history with vehicles, but is your fast food breakfast and rushing to work because you can't get your poo poo together more important than my well being? I don't think so.

I take benzos and lexapro, so I'm always chill now. It's a loving game changer, that's for sure. Made me a better manager like overnight almost. e: and I've lost a ton of weight from not drinking myself to sleep every night, and stress eating.

It depends. The fuzziness goes away after about a month. I also take 1mg clonazepam twice a day. I'd ask your doctor, it also depends on how much lexapro you're taking. I just upped to 20mg, and that seems to be right for me. Benzos definitely help with the attention span though, they sedate you, so depression/anxiety is gone, and you're calm and can focus.

But again, talk to your doctor, not everyone's the same.

There's two main ~things~ about any SSRI you gotta keep in mind:

1. The rampup kinda sucks and its really easy to mistake your brain evening out the sharply jagged peaks and valleys of your serotonin curve as "fuzzy".

2. There will come a moment after that rampup passes where the sun will come out from behind the clouds, and a voice will tell you its fine. Everything is fine and surmountable and thanks to your meds you're thinking clearly enough to recognize that you're strong as gently caress and you got this! You see this clearly now, you don't need them anymore! THIS IS THE VOICE OF SATAN, AVOID ITS URGINGS WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT

My experience with fluoxetine was that the first few days were awful. I was incredibly wound up and it felt like everybody was in slow-motion compared to me. It reminded me of the irritability I felt when I was quitting cigarettes. Eventually, this switch turned on and my brain no longer felt like this static of momentary bursts of thought (I always likened it to having every TV and radio in the house on and blasting at the same time). This resulted in less stress and the ability to focus on what was most prescient (kind of like defragging my brain). It also had the added effect of my chronic headaches just disappearing.

Oh yeah and everybody's right in that it takes forever to cum when you're on them.

3? People get pissy as gently caress over a minute wait.

I was walking through a grocery store parking lot, past a car with tinted windows. They kept pulling out slowly right behind me. I should have considered just stopping and staring at them. Like, "yes? I have the right of way here gently caress you?"

e - Also I feel alone here in not taking any sort of medication. Aside from ibuprofen/acetaminophen for my pinched sciatic nerve. Which is a lot better than it was uhhh, about a month and a half ago or so. It's not back to normal yet, but I can get around at work fine on 2 ibuprofen/1 acetaminophen a day, rather than hurting by the 4th hour, but being responsible and waiting to take another two aceta. Which is good.

Also the occasional drinking. But nothing crazy, and it's mostly lately been during Splatoon because I think I play better slightly intoxicated.

If you're not drinking or using other drugs there's almost no reason to not take as much to take as much ibuprofen or tylenol as you want.

You may want to look into a muscle relaxer for a pinched nerve. I had a compressed disc and nerve in my lower back about 5 years ago, took Flexeril for 2 months, and it cleared itself up.

There are also non-narcotic muscle relaxers, like skelaxin you could take as well. I took that while I went through PT for a torn rotator cuff, helped a lot with keeping from over exerting myself.

That bolded disclaimer was written for a reason, and if you're drinking or doing other drugs enough that taking more than four Advils in a day puts you at risk of other health problems, the Advil is probably not the problem you should be worried about.
