Action & Procrastination

Not sure how to say this, but I think that I am procrastinating on things even when I seem to be busy doing other things. I need to get to a point in my life where I am taking consistent action rather than thinking about doing things. [more inside]

How to attach shower head to sideways Pre-War NYC bathroom

Anyone in NYC (maybe elsewhere, too) with Pre-War apartments might recognize the hoop-style shower curtain rod, the 4 tub faucets, and the centered shower head that I have just moved into. What I'd like to do is connect a hand-held shower head to this shower and clamp it to the curtain rod, turning my shower to the usual length-wise orientation. Any ideas on how to do this?

Headache from Urination Strain (worried)

hey everyone. A short while back, I was in a phase where I was straining alot when I was peeing. I was being very OCD about emptying my bladder is what I'm saying. I did this until I started to feel a pain in my abdomen as well as an aching sensation in the right side of my head. I immediately stopped. While the pain in the abdomen went away, the headache persisted. Eventually I went to my MD and he didn't seem that worried about it and said it would go away. The head sensation sort of changes often. Sometimes it's a mild to moderate pain and sometimes it feels like sort of a cold feeling on the right side of my head if that makes sense. i wanted to get you guy's takes on this.

You Are Not My Neurologist: sometimes I have a strong, sudden spasm sensation in the lower back of my head.

How do I avoid sweating so much under my hats?

Doctors advise me to avoid much sunlight, but I'm bald. I need some protection, and sunscreen is such a bother. I have hats, but in my Florida humidity, I sweat bucketloads up there. Was there a trick before hats became unpopular? Cowboys didn't have to mop their brows every 5 minutes, right?
