My voice used to get higher than normal, like helium voice, and I couldnt shut up! That cracked me up the comparison to "black beauties" a word I havent heard in eons! I too tried it, in high school, but didnt like the feeling and never did it again. I never thought of it like that until it was said and its so true!!
I tried last night to take only 1 tylenol pm, and I was up like 4 hours after I took it, and tossed and turned not getting restful sleep. While on treatments I always took 2 a night and currently and get a solid 8-9 hours a night of great sleep. And due to the chemo, I was constipated those nights on treatments, so I wasnt up a million times going to the bathroom. But even getting up, it allowed me to fall right back to sleep.
Getting to be the time of year a hot cup of cocoa spiked with some rumple mintz, and that ought to help knock me out at bit!!
