Hi.

Hi Guys….. I am back and I didn’t mean to be gone for the last week but my body had other ideas. Here is what I have been dealing with…..
So 2 weeks ago at the request of my new neurologist here in Denver I got a new brain MRI (my last one was 8 years ago) which was so hard for me. I get claustrophobia real bad and being in the “head cage” inside this tomb with an IV in was the pits for me but I did it! Actually when it was over I felt so proud of myself. Then that Friday I got the results which came back as normal which I expected. That same day I got Migraine Trigger Point injections in my HEAD…. it was very unpleasant to say the least and the shots were suppose to numb the nerves in my head which should have drastically reduced my % of migraines….. BUT……… that isn’t how my life works and last week was the worst week long migraine I have had in about a year. I didn’t get out of bed for 3 days and no amount of migraine meds seemed to work. When you are so sick, stuck in bed, watching your life pass by it really really gets me down. I had a real rough week physically and mentally and I will save you the gory details.
You know, at least I can say I have tried everything and honestly I was born with this, this is my bad luck of the draw as it is for my Mom as well. Dealing with a chronic illness is so awful and it affects everyone in the family.
When this cycle finally broke and I was able to feel some relief this weekend it is like the clouds opened and God shone a light on me….. when I feel good it is unbelievable to me, like I can’t believe it is happening …. I only wish everyday was like that.

    I am glad it was confirmed normal (even though, you knew it would be.) Sorry, it was such a rough week. I don't have migraines but, bipolar II (manic/depressive). I know kinda what you mean, when coming out of the cycles it is such a God send and miraculous feeling. Our weather has been so up and down for a few weeks, with more cloudy days then sun, and the next 7 look the same. It really gets my depression going bad, and financially I have to force myself to get in here. There are some days, I just cannot no matter what though. The sunny days then send me a little manic, with out and about or online spending. The psychiatrist last week told me I'm just fine and it's just situational. Doctors and chronic illness is the worst, I totally understand.
