Not Having Fun!

Well this is a fine kettle of wax. Or ball of fish. My treatment appointment is actually on the 13th of June. I’m not pleased. My head is hurting again, as is my back. And it started about a week early, too. I kept saying I think it’s next week or the week after. I vaguely remembered it was after my boys birthday, which is on the 11th, and I was mildly upset I wouldn’t be feeling well on his birthday.

However, I see the same doctor on the 8th for a consultation. Perhaps it’s better I’m unmedicated by Botox. That way he can see what is really going on.  I will need to discuss with husband my goals and wishes for the appointment, because he will need to summarize and translate, likely. I’m in bad shape. If I spend any time not on my side – ie in any other position, I get a headache and nausea and back spasms. The headache isn’t bad, but the jaw pain is. I’m a grinder of teeth. I do wear a mouth guard when I sleep, but it needs replacing. I just have not been well enough.

It feels like there is a point at the back of my head, and when I’m lying on it, it’s wearing down or bruised? It hurts, but it’s the only way other parts are comfortable. I will roll over and nap soon. My husband thinks I should sleep all day. I haven’t been sleeping at night. I’ve been having good naps from 4:00 to 8:00.

When my neck gets all stiff and sore, and my head hurts and my skull hurts, my cognition gets totally screwed. I honestly giphycan’t reason, it’s such a bizarre feeling. On top of that, I can barely remember the words for most things. Yet, I lie down for a while, it has to be on my side and things get much better. If it’s raining, though, things are almost intolerable. The pain is always bad. Turning my head too quickly is a nightmare. The symptoms get worse the longer I am not on my side, too. I can feel the pain ramping, so I will be going to have that nap now.

My son’s birthday is coming up and I need to prep for my doctor appointment, so if I don’t touch base or check in, I’m rationing my time as much as I can. Know I’m thinking of you, I will be in touch when I can.

I was going to type something and it’s gone from my head. I hate this feeling. It’s not me at all. My husband said ‘it happens to lots of people!’ Not to me!

Oh yeah! It’s funny, my pain always seems to ramp up towards Friday. My Mom said I used to do this as a child, too – I would wait until the weekend to get sick. Hmmm…

Be well Zebra pals! 😘

Bedtime Tidbits

Have you ever had that sensation where you’re in bed, I’m usually staring at my tablet, and suddenly I have no idea what time of day or night it is. I have no idea if I should be getting up or going to sleep. Probably a me thing.

I spent another day sleeping. I started out having a normal day, then playing, but I got my foundation on and realized I was just too tired and dizzy.

Last night, husband and I were fighting to stay awake from 9:00. Our son wasn’t in bed and was pulling the ‘I can’t sleep’ but you’ve only been in bed for five minutes….routine. We were probably asleep by 10.

I said to my husband this morning I was finally rested enough to go to bed. I was just at the point where I could settle down, cuddle up and chat for a while, only to drift off blissfully.

So I did that this afternoon. Only alone! I’m still too tired to partner up again. Which is fine, there’s stuff going on, I’m just worn out today. It’s raining, that seems to have something to do with it.

I hope you enjoyed this bonus episode!
