Beginning last night, 'migraine' resumed with a vengeance. Continued all day today, except after a micro-nap a while ago, which dislodged it somewhat, but left me groggy of brain. Technical term is brain grog. The good thing about this resumption is that it is a little less central-brain, and a little more frontal. That means that basic body rhythms are freer to run more normally. For example, when I am hit w/ a relapse, or central-brain migraine, my stomach stops processing. I.e., peristalsis pretty much fails - which is why I sometimes try to get things moving by filling up on sunflower seeds - and coffee. The problem with this stasis is that bad gut biota have their way, and so there is a loop: they increase the immune response, which agitates the brain w/ cytokines, which helps cause migraine, causing the gut to stall even further. Pretty clever of those parasites, eh? But now I feel things are finally turning around, so to speak. My muscles are still stiff from ages ago - a lactic acid problem - and I am tired bodilly. That will clear up the same time everything else does, because everything is related. As far as I can guess, tomorrow: Tomorrow or Monday, long trek. Weekend or Monday, bushes. Tuesday, library. Pushing it again.
Making feta/mozz. pizza w/ added black olives, diced tomatoes, anchovies, mushrooms, spices, mostly basil and garlic - also some greens. That is out of oven now, and in went burritos, with a re-fried beans, diced tomatoes, quick oats, beans, etc., mix - plus greens and a little cheese. Very little. Both meals are GF...
No wine on the menu for the foreseeable future. No gf, either..
A few years ago, I installed a, "LJ Friends / Visitors Map," but only on a post, so it didn't get a lot of hits. (Thinking of finally transferring that to my profile page). I could not figure out who was the LJ person from Kentucky, as indicated on the map. It's web page revealed that the person was from Carlisle, KY, so I looked that up. The only person, from there, whom I thought who might ever read my jnl was the woman writer who visitted the Congo. What a privilege! (Check her out). But, looking back, it seems that the visitor was actually a writer(?) in Pennsylvania. But a privilege, nevertheless. This actual person doesn't seem to have a Wikipedia page up yet, but I am sure he or she shall, one day soon.
One cannot rely on information in the web. After that whole debacle about my phone company charging me hundreds$ for my dial up usage, and the problem became resolved, my IP now says that I am in Pennsylvania - Pittsburgh, I believe - every time I log on. Although I take my name from MADison, Wisconsin, I am actually in Illinois. It's getting hot in here I gotta take off all my clothes... Pizza! Who wants some?
Extremely good... Esp. considering it was in fridge for over a week. Secret is to let it sit to room temp. first. Also, don't load toppings at the store, as they will melt the crust over time. As usual, I had to burn the outer crust, in order to cook the inside shell. Always a problem for GF pizza, imo.
