This morning I also discovered that not all medications that make you bleary eyed in the morning work at dulling the senses to triggers. Last night, I was having trouble falling asleep so I took one Tylenol PM to help me. Of course, waking up is always fun when I do that, but I noticed today that, unlike what happened when I was on the pain meds after my accident, this morning I was definitely still sensitive to the whistling on TV. (It was really annoying when there were back-to-back commercials with whistling.)
On a happier note... This week is my 10th and final week of my fitness regime. (That is, until next week when I start my one-year renewal.) Yesterday I had my "after" photos, but I also had one of the staff members take photos of me during my workout. Since next week I'm headed up to where I grew up, I plan to meet up with the (now) anchorman who did the three part series report on heart attacks that featured my dad. (I had a little cameo in it too...) I wanted to share the photos with him to show that I'm doing the exact same thing that my father did at the time of the report. I have an idea to see if he'd be interested in doing a follow-up to that report (since so much of what was discussed then is still true to this day). If he thinks it's a good idea, I might even suggest contacting their sister station where I currently live in the Midwest to share the story - with the hope that when comparing my father back then to me right now, I can somehow share what I'm going through with misophonia - like how my father was struggling with heart disease back then. It'll be interesting to hear what the anchorman thinks of my idea. I figure it could be another way to help spread the word about misophonia to the general public. Hopefully, I'll have good news to report in an upcoming blog entry.
