HERE to her Etsy shop to see more of them, before they are all gone!!!
I just happened on a blog written by another Chiari surgery patient. I was googling the effects of barometric pressure on headaches post brain surgery, and there she was.
Through her, I found a link to a "aches and pains" index on weather.com
Go HERE to put your zip code in, and try it for yourself. It indicates the likelihood that the weather will make your headaches, arthritis, or other ailments, worse.
This week, the index was LOW, and Monday through Thursday were very good for me.
This morning, when I woke up, I knew it was different. Not horrible, but different, and all day my headache has been a 5-6.
I checked the "index" and today in my zip code, it's a 5. Hmm.
Tomorrow and Sunday, it's supposed to be a 3 both days. Monday it's going to be 10.
Ouch. While I am not excited about a slammer on Monday, I will be very interested to see if my headache is truly that nasty on Monday.
My daughter had a good point though. It really IS that much better now that I know WHY.
And I also know that there ARE good days. And those GOOD days will get me through the lousy ones.
Perspective. I always knew that it was important. I just didn't know that it was everything.
A lady came into the shop today, with a proposition. She said she had one of my towels, and she loved it. She had a tiny crib, that she didn't want anymore.
Would I trade???
Well, that may sound crazy, but I gotta tell ya, I LOVE SWAPPAGE.
And besides, the monkeys needed a place of their own. They've been asking me.
OK, I'm crazy. I have never denied it.
But tell me, isn't it the sweetest? And isn't it perfect? I love the little tail sticking out between the rungs.
I swear I heard them whispering and giggling when I walked by.
Here's my new marketing idea. Not real sure how I am going to do it. But the medium Socketbook is a perfect tablet/Ipad carrier.
What do you think?
And I think it's time for a giveaway. But I need an idea? Anyone???
