Actually, I've suffered with migraines since I was ten years old. I spent years where my sole focus was how to get more imitrex. Doctors would give me all their samples in addition to my prescription. I took at least one a day to survive... I tried every preventative on the market and nothing worked. Then one day I found out a distant relative had the same problem. She took inderal (propranelol) er. Apparently, I was getting too much adrenaline to the head... this is a beta blocker and it slowed the process. I take that every day and almost never have migraines anymore. This was a miracle in my life if you had known how I had suffered. Have you tried everything out there already? Please feel free to email me if you'd like to discuss it privately.
Sorry to hear that you suffered so much with the migraines. Actually, I can control mine most of the time with over the counter medicines. Mine are definitely not the debilitating kind you have, thankfully. And thank you so much for the offer to discuss it privately. So very sweet of you. Mine were mostly triggered by working in the corporate world and putting my nose to the grindstone. I used to blame it on my boss who was a complete um, well, nevermind.
Oh Peg, Peg, Peg... simple, sweet Peg. See, it goes like this... first they point the rocket up towards the sky, then they wind up the rubber bands which creates cyntrifical (which is apparently a word only NASA recognizes cause my spell check is flagging it) force, then they turn on the fire boosters which serve only the purpose of burning thru the rubber bands. When they break, which can take up to 25 min. depending on their width, the rocket is launched at the unimaginable speed of 90 mph. With wind resistance, something you couldn't possibly understand, the rocket is slowed to approx. 75 mph, however, because the pilot is unable to pull the rocket over in the event of an officer monitoring his speed, he slows the rocket, using his hy-draul-ic braking system... I know... another big word! And slows the whole thing down to a safe 70 mph. I know so much it's hard to fit it all into one simple paragraph, but for now, you'll have to be content with this amazing knowledge I've afforded you. A little peek into my mind. Be well.
Like most things, once you know how the directory works it is easy to find a name. So I'm okay now on this, although, I do think it would be more impressive with a long list of authors or an Alpha character to head up each group. IMHO of course.
Yes. I went to the authors page and saw nothing to click. So I went to the URL which Anna Marie put in for you - again I saw nothing to click. So I went back to the authors page and clicked the name closest to mine. There I was!
Although it seems obvious, once you understand, there could be some kind of explanatory note. ie, " We currently have more than xxxxxxxx active hub authors. The listings here are alphabetical, similar to encyclopedia volumes. If you are looking for a particular screen name, Click the appropriate section listed below." Many, even most, of the people finding this index page think that these are ALL of the active hubbers. Maybe even adding the word "to" or "through" to each entry would help.
When you go to the directory all the names you see is actually a list of range names. So to find your name you have to look at the range into which your name fits and click on that and it will bring up the list of the hubbers that fall into that range and your name should be there. Not sure that I like this idea but perhaps there are too many hubbers to do it otherwise.
Hi again Mary. Yes, one would have to look very closely to find people. I wonder why it is condensed like that?
I'm hoping your family is doing better now. Was worried about things after reading your hub TIA or Stroke. Another friend, Hawaiianodysseus wrote about his TIA experience in Seven Miles of Gratitude. Very scary stuff.
It is. We are still waiting to get an appointment with the stroke specialist. I somehow missed Joe's hub but will certainly go back and look for it. Thanks, for the name of the hub and for thinking of us!
Goodness gracious, Cheeluarv. I wish I knew the formula to get 100 scores. I'd be all over it. The hubber scores seem to vary with many things like quality of the hubs as decided by the powers that be and the people who read and vote on hubs; by the ratio of followers to how many people you follow; to the traffic your hubs bring in from outside of HubPages. For example, do people search for certain things and your hub pops up in the results? Stuff like that.
Read a lot of other people's hubs and you will see a vast difference in author's style and subject matter. Comment when you are moved by something you've read. Follow only those hubbers whose work interests you. Respond when people comment, not like I did here waiting so long to answer your nice question. Sorry about that. All the best and I hope this helps. Peg
You are my "Goodness gracious" Pegcole 17 for giving me the best ,useful tips to increase the hub score, the delay is not a matter at all. As a Beginner , I was happy to see your detailed reply, particularly the tip on 'follow' and 'followers' was useful.
I recieved an email from a hubber who said she was 13 years old. It wasn't asking for help or anything...it was trying to make friends. I forwarded it to the Hub Team because I don't think 13-year-old girls should be...
I was surprised when I heard from Scott Life that he had some hubs stolen and he did not think that Hubpages did enough to resolve this. This got me wondering if other people here had a similar problem. Thanks for any...
As per the advice of many Hubbers I’ve tried to sign up on Shetoldme, but can’t seem to find their sign up button / page anywhere. A while ago I saw another Hubber comment on experiencing the same problem. Does...
Just for funzies, I clicked on the HubPages Directory (in the footer of each hub page). I was sure I would find my name on the list. The heading of the directory indicated that only authors with published hubs would be...
I'm appealing to anyone who lives in a warm climate to help me out. Something in my garden has plagued me the whole 7 years I've lived here in spain. It's very small (and my eyesight isn't too good - I wear glasses),...
