My life has been one roller coaster ride after another lately. So let me see if I can catch you up on this wild, not so fun ride.
First my mil is back in the hospital she had been out since March 10. She was doing good w/ her rehab and had gotten most of her strength back. But now her pulse is real low and they are talking a pace maker to help this.
Second my headaches. For years now I have had headaches. These headaches will come on and last for a few days or a few weeks. This last headache I have had started on March 29th and well it is still here. They are not migraines in that I don't get sick or have any of the other symptoms that go with migraines. From all the research I have done it sounds like cluster headaches but then I am not the Dr.
I had gone to my primary back in October about them and gave me a list of things to try since I was still night nursing Moose. Once I was done w/ the night nursing and he was weaned completely come back and see him. He told me to get my eyes examined, try to relax, get a massage, and try to get rid of my stress. I got my eyes examined and got new glasses. Tried to relax and rid myself of stress well those sorta are really really heard in my life right now. I did get a massage! It was wonderful but w/ in hours of the massage my headache came back. :^( Moose has been weaned for about 3 weeks now. This is sad for me knowing his is my last baby but good cause I can move forward w/ dealing with my headaches. My hormones should be getting back to normal and I now have an appointment to see a Neurologist on May 5th. Praying that there will be some answers about these headaches soon. I am really tired of living with them.
Third is work/volunteer work. My work schedule has changed a little in the past few weeks. I have been given more responsibilities w/ time4learning.com which I love! It is also the time of year when I organize the PPEA Used Book Sale. This is the largest used book sale in our area. I love doing this and it is only once a year but this year it has taken extra from me due to my mil and my headaches.
Oh and then there is being a wife, mother and teacher to add to it. So goes the roller coaster ride called my life!
