Like a hole in the head

If there was a safe surgical procedure to drill holes in your head to let the brain breathe I would totally do it. All these thoughts have my brain overheating.

I find your talk disturbing. are you o k?

I totally get where you’re coming from, @Jimbob. My mind is on overdrive half the time, too. Seems like the thoughts never stop coming.

I used to want to do this so badly. I felt like there was a black spongy mass between the front of my brain and my skull, and if I just drilled a hole in my head and pulled it out, my brain would decompress and cool down.

@ninjastar has great advice about putting an ice pack on the back of your neck. Our brains do get overheated, and cooling them down can make you feel calmer and more in control.

they use to do that in the olden days and it was called trepanning but it didnt work and a lot of the patients died because of it.

I would not want a hole in my head, bit a on , off switch would be good
