Please allow me a brief personal complaint session.
It is February 28, 2012, 11:24 p.m. I have the beginnings of a screaming migraine. This one came on fast and furious, is already killing me, but doesn't have much of the ocular stuff usually involved, so I can see to type.
It is my second migraine of the day (the first one was mild, this one is moderate to severe.)
It is my 27th migraine of 2013. (Yes. 27 Migraines in 58 days.)
I'm not kidding, and I'm not going to keep track any more. But now it's recorded for posterity.
I have seen a neurologist, ophthalmologist, OB/GYN, and internal medicine doctor. I am drinking Gatorade, staying hydrated, taking a beta-blocker, CoQ10 and magnesium, along with calcium and a daily vitamin. They are not triggered by dairy, chocolate, or sugar. (Whew, about the sugar thing. That would be a hard one to take for the team.)
I'm doing the neck exercises from the massage lady, and have just yesterday started going to a chiropractor.
Two days ago, this was my spine:
Now it looks like this:
I feel two inches taller, and I think that the chiropractor was even a little surprised at my neck crackage.
I have high hopes that this will get better over time. If it doesn't, I have high hopes that I will learn patience and choose to do the best things, eliminating some good and better to stay functional.
Maybe Father in Heaven is still hoping to teach me that my personal worth does not hinge on the things that I do or don't accomplish. He is constantly showing me in very individualized, undeniable ways that He loves me and will never leave me.
I have the most awesome husband EVER, and for that I am very grateful. He is so patient and helps so much--I hope some day I can bless his life like he has blessed mine.
I pray for:
and that I can always know God's will and DO it.
Thanks for listening. I'm feeling somewhat better now that my stuff is kicking in. I think that I will be able to relax and sleep now.
Tomorrow for preschool we're doing the number 2. "I have two eyes." We'll talk about the basic 6 parts of the eye, and then paint pet rocks and put googly eyes on them. Wednesday we did #1. "There is only one me." I found some cute poems, we played an ABC review game with candy, and then we traced their bodies and let them color them. Great fun!
I'm so happy about preschool, and Little K has learned her ABCs and is spelling stuff to me all day long, now. Plus, it's just been so dang fun!
