I'm registered for next semester. It looks like a good schedule:
Philosophy in Human Life
Holy Writ Rewrit (something to do with theological and linguistic interpretations of holy writings). Honors seminar.
Introduction to Social work

You can't say that four courses is too stressful if one of the classes is relaxation can you? So it looks good. I think I'll enjoy it, at least I hope I will. I'm excited to see what I think of the social work stuff. at least if I hate it, I won't have to be locked in. I can't imagine why I'd hate it, but I want to know sooner rather than later.

Philosophy isn't a topic I comprehend at all, but this is the 100 level course, so I should survive it. And the Holy writ rewrit sounds great too. Relaxation is a good thing, and hopefully it will give me some tools to use. Since RSD is the sympathetic (fight or flight) nervous system, relaxing makes sense. And it's a better choice of exercise and sports science classes than something like tennis or vollyball. Not that those aren't worthy of my attempts, but that just sounds like a way to get killed.

Pain levels are absolutely rediculous today. If I still feel like this on Monday I'm calling the pain clinic. It's frustrating that I can't even make it a month without calling.

Oh, one of the treatments for RSD that's being tried (not on me so far) is something called Ketamine. I could've sworn I heard that was a street drug in what I was reading for lifespan psychology yesterday. They were talking about ways young adults screw up their bodies or something. I'm thinking the scanning messed up some how? Because yeah...

Random quote of the day that I scared myself with:
"I hate living on the first floor facing the dumpsters. Because, yeah, if I was a serial killer, that's where I'd hide."

And you wonder why I almost pee my pants relieving my dog late at night...

Ketamine is a street drug. A pretty trippy one by the sound of it. Weird.

I was a human subject in a research study at a local teaching hospital. One of the drugs that was experimental for RSD treatment was ketamine.

On the street, it's called Vitamin K.

It's mostly used as a veterinary tranquilizer.

Re: Ketamine
Ah... Thanks. A lot of the RSD stuff I read wasn't clear about what it actually was. If it works, great... It was just a slight shock to read.

I'm sorry about the pain. I send you non-pain vibes ... hope they work.
Philosophy was one of my favorite classes! I guess because I'm weird, lol. I couldn't get enough of it. Hugs.

Now I know who to ask when I have problems next semester (smile). Thanks for the non-pain vibes!

I'm the reluctant philosopher! Hope I can remember. I loved the class, though. Maybe you can download Philosophy for Dummies. I read it, it's not bad, you know. (And yuu're far from a dummy!)
