So far this summer has been trying......trying to get me to take the bridge.
But I'm holding on, by my fingertips some days tis true, but I am.
April, May, into June, I felt almost normal. My headaches were so manageable, I got a little "heady". Sorry, couldn't resist.
If I can't find the humor in all this, I will certainly go mad.
Anyway, about four weeks ago, thereabouts, cause I get sick of keeping track, my headache ramped up to an 7-10, and has stayed right there, day in and day out, 24/7, despite any attempts on my part to dampen it.
Did the hated MRI thing a week ago Friday, but think my doctor is on vacay, and so have no results as of today.
Still, I persevere, and try to go down life's little lane, as if all was well.
The alternative, to throw in the towel, is just not in my nature.
So, as planned since last winter, I am in Maine with two of my three daughters, and four of my five grands.
I tried to leave my headache home with Roy and DH, but it insisted on coming along.
Who can argue?
The house we rented is fully equipped......500 ft of lake frontage, plenty of kayaks and equipment.
Loons on the lake, that lull one to sleep.
(If and when the gang has given up on their raucous game of ping pong in the basement)
Sketchy internet. Only getting this post done, because it is just past the crack of dawn, and I am the ony one using the band width.
But such a small price to pay for this.
It is actually disturbing to me, when I realize how super "connected" we need to be.
So other than this blog post, and a couple of pics posted to FB at rare intervals, I am trying to "disconnect".
I don't want to miss what is REALLY going on.
I think sometimes we forget, that before we were so attached by the invisible strings of social media, that there was a bigger connection.
A better one.
Lying here in the sun, loons and ducks cavorting around me, in absolute quiet, takes me back to a time, not so long ago, when life was simpler.
And isn't that what "vacation" is all about?
