Still alive.

Found a kid who wants to sing the blues.

Chase, Cameron, Wilson--- how about I prove that I'm certifiable now and buy you tiny people a drink and teach you what real music is?

Let's say-- tomorrow?

I gotta go do something, because apparently Hell hasn't frozen over, at least in Princeton. I thought the Diagnostics conference in L.A. was bad, but fuck that: I have NEVER been this goddamn HOT.

Oh, and yeah. I lost all my music. Send me some more, you little people. You know what I like--

So. What'dya think?

Peace at last.

I need... something.

And it's not the fucking Vicodin. I don't even feel the ones I took.

It's something else. I don't even think I know.

And it's killing me.
Don't Look For Me: still awake. Wish I wasn't.

This is currently what's on rotation on my famous iPod.

Straight from the horse's mouth, kiddies.

Greg's Playlist OneCollapse )

The classical stuff's on another list, along with more blues and the like that I didn't want in this one. This one's fit my mood rather well, just lately.

Mind that first song carefully, assholes.

You Are 60% Sociopath

You're not a sociopath, but you're very prone to antisocial behavior.
Other people's opinions matter little to you. You live your own fringe life - for better or worse.

Dissociatives and chronic pain.

Spanking-new theories, all mine.

Saw this documentary on the evolution of the idea of Hell last night. I'd rant about it, but not just yet.

A Valium, three Vicodin, a beer, and bed.

Both opiates and dissociatives[DXM -- that's right, kiddies, dextromethorphan, the cough-syrup stuff -- and Ketamine] have strong side effects which can limit their usefulness in pain treatment. When the two are combined, however, a synergistic effect occurs, and patients can lower the dose of both drugs to the point where side effects are minimalized (236,267,278). Dissociatives prevent tolerance to opiates (248) and can alleviate opiate withdrawal (254). On the other hand, combining the two may increase the chance for respiratory depression and fatal overdose.

DXM seems to enhance the painkilling ability of opiates without adding to the side effects, and in practice the patient can lower the dose of opiates while maintaining analgesic effect (37). As an added bonus, DXM seems to prevent opiate tolerance (see next section). DXM by itself has only marginal analgesic effect if any (373,375).
Don't Look For Me: still home. For now.
