I am laughing through pain. That's right. I am laughing at my pain. Oh wait - this really does hurt.

Dragon Days....

I am almost one month headache free...which quite frankly says a lot given it is the holidays. I have been converted to a HUGE fan of botox!

So, next week is my usual guaranteed migraine. The OBGyn has suggested I halt my periods to see if it is a hormonal issue. The funny thing is that he kept asking if I "understood" what he was saying....I felt like saying "Duh! I am the one who feels the hormone shift!!" but instead I was good and just responded that yes I very much understood what he was trying to do. So, we shall see if the answer has been found. I have, however, become resigned to that if I have a migraine once a month and it is due to being on birth control...well, then that is ok. It is better than having a child that I am not ready for.

I still don't know what the boob surgeon is going to be about and the anxiety remains. It seems that even after my first "consult" I will still not know what it going to happen. I wonder if these doctors know what this anxiety feels like? To continue to wait and not know is quite frustrating.

Anywho....for right now I sit and try to occupy my mind with some other thought.

Not feeling too good today. I don't have a headache (yeah!!) but I have a touch of the blues.

They found another lump in my breast. No panini machine this time - I get to make an appointment with a "breat surgeon." I don't know what that means, but it does not sound good. There is a chance it will decrease my migraines.

Excuse me while I enjoy my pity party for one...I feel blah.

p.s. The botox is working like a charm!!
