And my uncooperative head.
Remember how last week I wrote about how things don't always go as planned? Well, this week was worse. Much worse.
I've suffered from migraines since I was in college, related to allergies. Last Friday I had a migraine, in the normal spot, with the normal symptoms.
And then the real trouble began. Since then I've had what seems to be another migraine, or rather, an increased migraine, in a new spot, with all new symptoms. My normal pain medicine is not working, and yet the doctors have no other explanation.
I don't really like to talk about personal issues, especially regarding pain or illness. I am of the opinion that if you have to tell everyone how sick you are or how much pain you are in, well, then you probably aren't. But let's just say I can handle pain, and this was unlike anything I've ever experienced. Unlike three natural childbirths. Unlike previous migraines. Unlike hernia repair. And on and on.
And here's the rub: I talk about simplifying, about all things natural, so we can spend our time living. This past week, I could hardly function. There was no room for anything more. Not even a blog.
So, friends, I'm slowly getting back to living. There are some big changes coming up, personally and here in my bloggy home. I have a lot to do to get ready for these changes. But not tonight. Tonight, I rest and heal. I pray that soon I will be able to do more than simply function.
