    Crazy?
    Bat-shit crazy maybe.
    Alcohol alters your perception of everything.

    Alcohol, like Baclofen, but much more enjoyable.

    Is this the first time you’ve discovered this phenomenon?
    alcohol is a depressant with respect to muscles and central nervous system

    Alcohol is frustrating for me. When I have a drink or three I get some neuropathy relief from the central nervous system suppression part, but it also shuts down my kidneys or at least slows them down such that my normal 4.5 hours between ICs can go to 6 easily. But the real joy comes the next morning when I wake up to razor-blade paresthesia.

    Don't want to sound like I'm giving a sermon, but it sounds like your body is telling you to cut back.

    I'm sorry PBR, but your initials are just too perfect for this thread

    Anyone who has been on this forum long enough knows my feelings about acronyms. To "funklab's" rollicking post about the Spinal Cord Injury Nurse's initials, they could stand for Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer (who drinks that stuff??? really???) or if you search the internet for the initials "pbr," the first hit you get is "Professional Bull Riders". You just don't know what is in someone's head....do you?
