Ummm, isn't "about me" part of the point of the blog?

Happy New Year, Duuude!

Disclaimer: we all know that no reader of this blog would ever consider abusing controlled substances or alcohol. This is just an interesting clinical observation.

The Beast is more or less under control, thanks to getting a green light for a large increase in my Klonopin intake.

One should, of course, avoid or at least contain one's alcohol consumption whilst on Klonopin, to avoid very intense results. I've also noted how important timing is with taking this stuff. If one tries to be macho and heroic and wait out a TN onset, then the accepted dose does nothing. However, if one takes it on an empty stomach and immediately upon onset of the pain, the dosage kills the TN and often brings on that navel-gazing stage so often associated with abuse of these little yellow pills. At home, this is just fine. At work, it can lead to some odd results.

Pity the effect isn't more predictable.

Aww, fabulous! I cannot think of anyone more deserving of The Good Drugs than you. Glad you're feeling better.

Just remember, though. Do not mix enough klonopin and beer to go all Sunny von Bulow on us. I cannot afford to lose even one blog reader ;-)

That may be one of the few times anyone has called me Sunny! =)
