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 there.....to 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?"
