As I'm sitting here faced by an almost non-stop, ferocious, crushing Lyme disease-induced headache, which makes sleep virtually impossible, I'm easily riding it through, thanks to the fabulous tunes of "Miss Saigon" to which I'm now listening.
Which leads me to ask those of you who are suffering with bad habits: Why turn to sugar, drugs, alcohol and other horrible substances or self-destructive pursuits when music can salve and soothe your soul?
Try it sometime. Turn on tunes instead of rushing to self-defeating behavior. (You know what they are for you.)
