wysiwyg I agree with -in utero- memories. Those who never had formed them and repeated them in later years as a result of crises can not even begin to imagine the concept or clarity of in utero memories. Revealing what they have to say can be exceedingly important but memories are not the boss of a damn thing.

How you incorporate near death incidents are entirely your choice.

btw did you ever have a preference for left handedness?

So... the annual anniversary I deal with at the dark of the year is the death, in utero, of my identical twin at about 4-1/2 months gestation. It was a late twinning, meaning that the egg division was completed with timing that resulted not only in a shared placenta, but-- so rare-- a shared amniotic sac. I have the complete memory of dying (co-experiencing with my twin what she experienced), and the complete memory of struggling to survive her dying.

It's very rare for one to survive the other's death within the shared sac. The dissolution and resorption of the one affects the other. So, part of the annual cycle for me usually includes being grossed out by smells and disorder around me.

I work on this hard in counseling, and every year it manifests in a new way that I don't see coming. This year, it happens that when my energy will be at its annual low, my husband is retiring from a busy parish at the busiest time of the year. For both our sakes-- he's very tired-- I've negotiated that our actual final moving process will wait till March. Our retirement cottage in Ohio is furnished "enough" that we'll depart PA with two mattresses and kitchen essentials, and any valuables we don't wish to leave in the empty house.

I head back from Ohio to PA Dec. 5. I'm trying to simplify everything I can, now, so that our retirement goes smoothly.

And I just spotted one way it's come up already this year-- worrying that hubby may die of exhaustion. I'll have to work on that!

I believe that visual anomalies like these usually precede a headache. I always thought the pain was vascular in origin when the blood vessels constrict but since the brain has no pain receptors where does the pain come from? How can blood vessels have their own nerves? Perhaps the brain does feel pain when it is oxygen restricted. The pain is associated with the eyes from the eyes to the occipital and neck region.

Obviously something is disrupting/blocking visual impulses. Drugs that open neural pathways seem to restore normal function but often by too much like LSD. Detectives of migraine phenomena often point to biochemical causes with a trigger mechanism. What if it is merely a short circuit that migrates like epilepsy but with no convulsions?

By comparing experiences the cumulative similarities will advance our own musings. Sometimes we are our own best doctors.

Don, I have a friend who goes blind (usually in just one eye) because of a migraine, with absolutely no pain. Mine were different, pre-menopausal, to the point where I didn't tell my neuro how many I was getting. Now, it's mostly weather and fatigue. Funny, but Feverfew (prophylactic flower/herb) worked great before, and doesn't work now.

WTF, a migraine symptom returned just now but without agony. whew

They begin at puberty and are suppose to abate at man/menopause.
The symptom is a thin moving wriggling bright rainbow lightning bolt that shimmers in my field of vision no matter which eye I close. It has drifted to a right side peripheral position so it does not block the sweet spot. I would encourage future research to focus on sex hormone - migraine connections. Poof, it just disappeared. The lightning bolt, not the sex. :^/

Morning crew, we have just had a wonderful 10 days with nephews and a niece visiting us from New Jersey, they managed to take in Windsor Castle, stone henge, Bath, London with all the usual"must dos" london eye, Buckingham Palace, Greenwich and we all enjoyed the Eagles game at Wembley. Two days in Edinbrugh then a day in Suffolk. We saw them off at Heathrow on Friday. What a whirlwind visit but much love and hugs to enjoy plus the great news that Billy had another 4 month check up with his specialist and he is still in remission.
Having a restful day today looking at all the photos, coffee pot on if you would like a cup
With love

So as not to give offense, I won't identify the Mudcatter by member name.
But the member casually let drop, on a music thread,
that an elderly parent died in October (last month)
and that the member not only spoke at the parent's funeral
but made music, in spite of being intensely emotional about it.

Go ahead and jump on me for my anonymous comment if you must, but
I want to say that the member in question
has my deepest sympathy and appreciation. Thanks.

I didn't post this earlier, as I didn't want to intrude on the remembrance of Tommy.

Here's the poem Wendy mentioned. I wrote it for my mother, who was reliving her memories of sexual assault during the Kavanaugh hearings. I felt that if she, and other women, could be brave enough to come forward about what had happened to them, then I could be brave enough to come out as transgendered.

I understand now why you didn't want sons
Even though you got one anyway
Born into the wrong body
My life might have been different
Knowing now what we didn't know then
You knew I was different
But the way you raised me would have been the same
You protected me and camouflaged me
Until I was ready to be the real me
You may have been born in the year of the tiger
But you have always been a dragon
Fiercely protective
But with a wisdom you rarely credit yourself with
I don't know if dragons have larval forms
But I think they must
Because I have finally shed my chrysalis
And become my own dragon

Tamson, just sending love and best wishes to you,I read a beautiful poem in another place,written by you. So wonderfully constructed and sensitively written. Might you share it here with this special crew?

All is well here, enjoyed a huge family gathering at the weekend to celebrate my cousins golden wedding. Four generations of cousins, their children and grandchildren and 2 Aunts from the generation before.It was so good to see all the little ones getting on so well together,shyness evaporated almost immediatly.Meanwhile us"oldies" found ourseleves on the wedding photos, did I really wear such short skirts and the big hairdo.

Medical appointments for my daughter this week ,for an unpleasant procedure and then Billy has his 4 monthly appointment and trial results,fingers crossed!

Coffee pot on....

With love

Being as I've just met "R1" on one occasion, I guess I won't be seriously tempted to blather "One of my best friends is...", but, between that meeting and our history here, I certainly count him (you) as a friend. For a good share of my life, I would have been really put off by the transition. Now, however I toss it around in my head, all I feel is happy to know that a good person has made a decision that needed to be made. Y'know...it feels good to know that about myself.

Thanks for being my friend, r1. Yer 'one of the good ones'.

I finally came out as transgender on Facebook the night before last. Earlier in the day, my manager at the market made me a new name badge with my new name on it.
