I do like my doctor. She's good people. I have been seeing her for 11 years, and do not have to pay on my plan, so it's worth taking advantage of. I mentioned that I had quit all prescription drugs cold turkey recently. I went to see her yesterday because I was peeing constantly. (Blood tests showed me to be pre-diabetic, and I feared I had full-blown diabetes---which turned out not to be the case). She told me to go back on the drug Tamulosin, and I heeded her advice.
I don't know what she would recomend for insommnia. You can bet it will be a drug. That's her and other doctors' training. That's what they know, and drug companies are constantly wooing them with fat paydays for going along.
I tried Ambien before, but it had a near-hallucinatory effect. I took Lorazepam for years and became hooked. I won't go back, just straight ahead.
All of a sudden the quote option doesn't work, so:
Jazzbo: It's worth a shot. As I said, I trust her. She ain't bad for a 'cookbook' practitioner. If it keeps up I'll consult her, thanks.
Absolutely. All art should be approached that way because of how insanely subjective it is. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean it's complete and utter shit. Because someone does, and probably more someones on top of that.
Using the Pop artists being mentioned here, Michael Jackson, Prince, and David Bowie's music didn't really float my boat. But I could easily pick out a handful of songs by each that I could listen to over and over. So did I "get" them? Probably not, but I also didn't just dismiss them out of hand.
And yes, the dichotomy of if it's Pop than it's shit, but why isn't Jazz more popular has been a source of amusement to me for years. You reject being in the club, yet sit around and whimper wondering why nobody invites you to the club.
