Just Stopping In

I haven't had a lot of time to do much crafting this week. I have started a few cards but halfway through I get stumped. It's probably because I have been working all week. One of the guys is off on vacation soooo I am here pretty much all day. No day off. By the time I get home I am too tired to really accomplish something. Hopefully on Sunday I can get cracking. My in laws are coming in to town next week, so not sure how much I will be able to do then.

Not sure how much everyone knows about my situation...I get severe headaches. They have gotten really bad over the last few years. Now mind you my "headaches" can make me violently ill. I don't mean getting sick once or twice, I mean for 6 hours laying on the bathroom floor because to move makes me sick. I would be down for days! They were worse that time of month. I have been to doctor after doctor. Some say it's all in my head...I laugh and say yup it really is. I have had xrays, mri's, cat scans, acupuncture (sp) and chiropractic care. NOTHING helped. I was told by one doctor that I have degenative disc disease in my neck while another said no...that's normal wear and tear on a neck of someone my age. I have had steriod injections, that hurt! And finally last year I had "surgery". In February Dr. Holland went in and inserted a tube into my neck...from there he ran a laser into the nerve about the middle of my skull on the right side and cauterized the nerve. At the end of March they did the same procedure on the left. After it healed enough for me to feel the back of my head with out a burning sensation (6 weeks) it seemed to have stopped the headaches. It lasted about 6 months total. They came back and came back with a vengence. I switched doctors new doctor and his group specialize in lots of stuff but one of them was headaches. Anyway he has a study that I joined...I take a pill for the 7 days after I start my period and keep a diary of what happens...seems to be helping...I still have headaches but they are not as bad. Don't last as long. Just wondering what happens after the study is over in 2 months????

Bad daughter has been having the same thing. Hopefully something can be done that will help both of us! 

Till the next crafty project is finished!

I can not imagine headaches like that. I hope they figure out a more permanent solution for you.

I just wanted to stop by and welcome you to the team! It is awesome to have you on board. I look forward to working along side you on the team.
