LOl yes Miranda because I don't believe that a video game permanently alters your brain chemistry. Thanks September, LOL my daugters aren't gamers (The younger one doesn't completely have her fine motor skills yet) my husband is

My husband is in school for 3D animation and game design and parts of the class do include this research and a lot of it isn't completely proven about permanent effects on the brain only temporarily, not permantly. Video games can't do this, but military training can. And I'll have to remember that for my next post

This is what I found: Neuroscans of Tetris players demonstrate that the game helps players' brains become more efficient in areas linked to critical thinking, reasoning, language and information processing. It also strengthens and thickens players' cerebral cortexes, increasing brain tissue.

Sooooo ETA: Technically yes it can alter the brain.

No. Chemically altering would be physically playing inside the brain, conditioning would be lubing it .

There are times in life where, no matter what choice you make, it will suddenly blow up in your face. There is no telling when this will happen, or what will make them happen. Just keep faith that something better will come once you help pull yourself out of this.

Yes, I said you help pull yourself out of it. Not do it all yourself. Rely on your friends and family that you can. Everybody has their breaking point, and you shouldn't feel bad for reaching yours.

And I'm back. Lynn woke up again... this time before I could even get her in her crib. I've been cleaning for the past hour. At least the computer got a chance to cool down, I guess.

Oh, yeah! The "watch the same thing over and over and over and over and over again" stage. At least it's amusing/funny when they dance along.

Crap. Now it's too late to ask Jason if I can do my hair. I was going to ask him an hour before he had to leave, but my tired brain thought (for some odd reason) that he worked at 8... he works at 7. It's already 6:15 here, and he has to leave soon. FUCK!

Do you have any Vicks. If you don't have the baby kind could you hold the open jar under her for a moment or two. Also have you tried taking her into the bathroom and running a hot shower and have her be in the room with the steam?

The Ingredients Elizabeth told Carolee to use is a homemade Saline Solution Emma. That's what Saline is, salt water.

Speaking to a 41 year old here, and I'm still young, so you are definatly not old.

I usually only do the nose squeegee thing before bed so they can sleep.

My doc said to only use that if absolutely necessary and even then try to only use it a few times a day. He said that it can cause inflammation of the sinus cavities and make things worse.

Speaking of inflamation, I know when I get a head cold, ibuprofen helps take the swelling down in my sinuses and makes me feel better.

I go through phases where that's all I want to watch. It's odd. My friend and I usually watch horror movies all night long when she spends the night. We have "girl's night" every 2 weeks.

I hate when they're sick. On one hand, it's so sad to watch them lumber around not feeling well. On the other hand, the extra cuddles are nice. They always seem to want to kiss more when they're sick, though. Eww. lol.
