Forging ahead.

These things I know:

Sometimes you have to be your own best advocate when it comes to your health.  The MRI is still not approved, and by the time it is, I may find out I don't need it.

Today was the BEST DAY I have had in ONE month.  Hallelujah, and AMEN.  My chiropractor is my brand new hero.  He is the best.  I am going twice more this week.  Heating pad on my neck as I type. Flexeril waiting for my bedtime.

My headache is low grade, totally bearable, and I am a happy camper.

My gut feeling to get my eyes checked turned out to be a good one.  I went today at 3:30, and was shocked to find that my left eye has changed dramatically, from 20/20 to 20/60.   Could that have contributed to this headache......oh, yeah.
So I ordered new glasses, and I have to search the house for my MANY old pairs of glasses that I put on whenever I feel so moved.  I will pick at least one pair I really like, and get new lenses put in them.  It never hurts to have a spare pair anyway.

I was actually somewhat productive today.  OMG, it felt SO good.  SO normal.

I pray that this is the way to get back normal.  I took my day to day routine for granted, until it was unavailable to me on so many levels.
Then I knew what I was missing.   

Today I felt the beginnings of excitement about just being at the studio, something I honestly have not had since this headache started.
A little voice in my head keeps saying, "Whiplash.  Seriously. Who knew?"

Yes, come to think of it, you took quite a fall a while back and perhaps it just took a while to manifest itself. I was so happy to hear you had a good day today!

I wouldn't have thought a head bump that happened what seems like forever ago could have ramifications now...?... Hm. Who'd a thunk it? Glad to hear you are finally getting relief! Isn't feeling normal glorious? Yay! Have a great day!

I wish I'd known about the whiplash, I'd have told you to see the chiro ASAP .. and the new glasses I suspect will also help .. eons ago I had this headache that seemed only to happen in the office .. I began joking that I must really hate it since my head aches all day except when I went out to lunch .. guess why? I had my eyes checked after a friend suggested maybe that was part of the problem .. I was wearing contact lenses in those days. Turned I needed reading glasses (or a change from regular contacts to bi-focal contacts) .. who knew? Not I. Got half readers to wear with/over the contacts when I was in the office and headache vanished ..
