wishing for a ...

I'm really not handling my pain situation well this holiday season. The weather here in Michigan got warm last weekend and now it's back to frigid which has really played havoc with my head. And my gastroparesis pain is getting worse. Plus not being able to eat my favorite Christmas treats is really a bummer.

Migraines and The Holidays

I took this photo in an antique store. I love those vintage ornaments. My migraines have been going crazy right now. I think because of the holiday depression and the weather has been unusually warm with lots of rain.

Holiday Depression Monster isn't impressed

I tried to give one of my holiday depression monsters some Christmas Cheer but he doesn't seemed impressed.

This time last year...

I can't believe it was this time last year that I was having the surgery for my deviated septum for my sleep apnea and migraines. I had such high hopes for the surgery and how it was going to help. All I wanted to do was get the surgery over with and get my sleep apnea under control. Then everything went to shit in April with the pancreatitis and the gastroparesis.

I still never had my follow up sleep study. I still take off my mask during the night and frequently I can't get to sleep with it on cause my stomach hurts so bad. I haven't had the opportunity to see my migraine doctor. Everything has been steam rolled by my stomach problems, which are only getting worse with the pain, not eating and the weight loss. I can't even begin to explain the epic exhaustion that I've been experiencing. I'm caught in that "try this medication...have this side lets try something else" loop with the docs.

Plus that horrible holiday blues depression is upon me. It comes every year and it just gets worse.

Migraine Holiday Head

I saw this little angel Christmas decoration at an antique store and her hair looked like exactly how I feel during the holidays with my migraines. So I took her photo and I used Font Candy to make this.
