Bead Counting Tapering - New To Me So All Advice Welcome!
Posted 06 April 2019 - 10:26 AM
Lol fishinghat, Perry Como....one of my Mum’s faves and my uncle used to sing his back catalogue when he’d had too much of the Irish wine. He did have a good voice, mind.
YES!!! I split my dose for the first time yesterday and feel better already. It was thankfully quiet last night though I didn’t sleep due to the anxiety and Duloxetine. Am sticking with it and when things stabilise here with the new neighbours, I’ll begin a proper taper. That said, I already feel like I’ve started because am not as zonked as with the one 20mg dose. So, tis all good. Also feel better for having found this forum
What about the noise for you, IUN? Hope there’s been no building work today and peace has reigned

He's magic on scene.
Fisherman? Scrat? not myself? Scrat is IUN. For those who don't know.
I've been woken by construction workers, 200feet from here. They are so noisy with their, can't say it in English, but working on hard rock to bring it down. I'm with you who can't stand noise, makes me anxious.
BTW, welcome Notmyself to the forum. Haven't been too well.

I should state for the record that despite my issues with Bose, their products are good - but way overpriced.
I remember Perry Como.
My bad Kathy. I did not open the link and assumes you were talking about the head phones from bose.
I heard this long ago --> BOSE is short for Basically Overpriced Stereo Equipment!

Lol KathyInFL. I have a Bose sound system and it is excellent but yep, definitely way overpriced

Fishinghat, we couldn’t afford a radiogram either but my Mum was adamant and so my Dad had to abandon his financial principles and buy one on HP:)
IUN, my Dad had a hiatus hernia too. He developed it in his 60s, bless him. Sorry to hear your friends and neighbour have them. The joys of getting older! Hope everyone’s coping with difficulties and managing to enjoy the weekend all the same

I know that hiatus hernia's are common in "older age", but at 41, I am not quite ready to be tarred with that brush just yet! But I have a new found respect for all those who do have them - if nothing else, to be taking more pills every day!
I remember when my parents bought their first CD hi-fi. It was a front loader - like a cassette - before they had the tray that ejected itself. They bought a Phil Collins CD and I remember putting it on top of the lampshade and melting it by mistake... I was in trouble that weekend I can tell you...
Kratom - I can tell you anything you want to know. That, along with CBD oil, are my specialties here! It needs to be used cautiously, but it is perfectly safe. I only use it once or twice a week. But sometimes, if I have had a good week, then I will not use at all. I use it for medicinal purposes. For example, tonight I will use it to relieve the discomfort in my stomach as I cannot take pain killers. I never, ever, use it for recreational purposes.

Lol. Phil Collins melting on a lampshade - priceless! Reminds me of buying the Ashes to Ashes 45 and leaving it on top of the gas fire in my flat. It was fine till my flat mate switched it on without noticing....
KathyInFL I have socks older than you! Lol. Do you remember the fun of playing 33s at 45 and vice versa? Loved that, especially at parties when everyone was in the swing of things. My gran had an old gramophone and tons of 78s with boxes of styluses. Had great fun with those. It was a thing of beauty.
My next door neighbour in Belfast had an 8 track and he was considered really cutting edge techno guy. It sounded great but I never had one.
Confession. I had to get rid of some treasured vinyl when I moved to my bungalow due to lack of space. Hate that I did that

I am sure I was born too late! When my grandparents used to speak of their lives, the simple, basic, no-frills existence, it made me want it so much. I see cars the same way. I much prefer older cars as there is less to go wrong. All this modern life - food, drugs, medication(!) - so much potential for stuff to go wrong! I really wanted to live through the 50's and 60's.

Oh so true. It was a great and simple life but without the advanced technology it was a lot more labor intensive. I remember cutting down trees with a two man crosscut saw. It took 2 days to cut down, saw up and split one big tree got 4 people. Now 2 people can do it with a chainsaw in a day.

Yes, you see. This is how I see it. I would feel much more at ease being twice the age I am today, and to have seen those amazing times growing up. The television invented would have been an amazing thing to witness. Sure I easily remember the days without the internet, but it is just not the same.
New inventions are coming out every day now, so it is like... so what else is new? Things just aren't appreciated like they used to be....
Hehehe - I sound like an old person now
...and Hat, why am I picturing your upbringing like it is a set from 7 brides for 7 brothers...?!
