during my hell with what felt like a broken neck and head…
i was desperate.
my doctor put me on these pain killers that barely even put a dent in my pain….
i was becoming cranky (more cranky than i naturally am lol) and i was just so tired of it all.
do you even know how much a headache takes out of you?
i decided to treat myself to a spa day.
i thought a nice massage would take away the stress…even if it was momentarily.
i needed a break, and i needed it yesterday.
So i called the spa…and the earliest they could get me in was….today.
2 weeks after i called.
I have been headache free for a couple of days now.
i went to bed with a massive headache on Tuesday and woke up Wednesday pain free.
yay for me!!!
this was the longest running headache i have ever had. three and a half weeks. three and a half weeks people!
that’s enough to drive anyone insane i am sure.
my neck seems perfectly fine now too…however this eye twitch i developed at the same time the headache came on needs to go before i rip my own eye ball out.
i wonder how many random people i’ve spoken to think i am hitting on them.
ya know, a little smile…a little uncontrollable wink 🙂
so today i am booked for a half hour Swedish massage, a 40 minute manicure and a 60 minute pedicure. (my little feet are so excited!)
oh maahhhh lawd….i cannot wait.
the first and only time i ever had a massage was probably just over a year ago.
a hot stone massage gifted to me for my birthday.
i can’t believe i let so much time pass.
i will think of you all fondly as i’m getting pampered.
this is just what a goddess needs
a full on pamper day…
as much as i hate taking pills
these pills have been my miracle drug.
once the whole stoner feeling passes that is… that...is not fun.
after the pill kicked in…i felt like myself.
very minimal headache and neck pain…tolerable.
so i took advantage of this feeling and went straight to the gym.
i got almost 2 hours in!!!
the scary thing was, i probably could have kept going!!!
i did a whole hour on the elliptical, while watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer –
i’ve never seen one episode of that show…but i watched the whole thing at the gym
couldn’t tell you what the hell it was about…but i watched it lol
i totally got my sweat on.
i drove with my music really loud
did my car dancing…
life was good!
till the pill wore off…yuck.
i took one more at night…and got the best nights sleep EVER
i slept the whole night through – which never happens
today i am feeling better. still can’t really turn my neck
but i am going to see if i can make this a pill free day.
it’s going on two weeks that i have had this bloody headache…
seriously i need a break from it please
the universe decided to give me a break…by having me sleep funny last week and wake up with a broken neck.
it took the extreme pain in my head away that’s for sure.
thanks Universe…you rock.
i cannot turn my head either way…i look funny…
but i assure you i am not laughing.
have you tried changing lanes when you really can’t move your head???
to add insult to injury…i feel like i just worked out my upper abs for 24 hours straight
either that or have been punched in the gut repeatedly.
