quiet evening at home
Just catching up on my news reading for the day. First of all, there was a tragedy for a shark researcher. I've always respected the shark - they've been around far longer than homo sapiens, and yet the homo sapiens may lead to their extinction. I have a tatoo of a blue shark on the back of my right shoulder. Since it looks like my scuba diving days may be over with, that will be one regret in my life - to dive with sharks.
Second was a "why couldn't this have been known a few years ago" kind of story. Here's the weblink (free registeration). Transdermal buprenorphine worn as a patch seems to help neuropathic pain. The only medication that helped me for a significant amount of time was fentanyl in a patch called duragesic. I hope this helps some of those not as fortunate as I have become and are living with too much of the trigeminal pain.
UPDATE: Still warm, but the brownies are like most things that I've tried that are gluten-free. Crumbly, dense, and something about the texture that tells you it's not quite right. Tomorrow will have to be a different recipe.
