It\'s like a cycle. One week, it may be my stomach and the next week I get headaches. Why? I keep going through this sheesh. These days, for the past 7 years, it\'s rare that I wake up with tons of energy and feeling super great. Something went terribly amiss after H.S., or at least, after my 21st birthday. I feel like crap all the time and usually there is nothing wrong. I remember, for a while, I would be sitting in the emergency room no less than twice per month and only to be told that nothing was wrong with me. I\'m so grateful that those days are over. But I am so sick of feeling like sheesh.


Last year, I was involved in a car accident. It was nothing major, but I needed therapy for a neck sprain. It seems like the therapy did more harm than good. shortly after starting therapy, I began to have these really bad migraines. At first, I thought it was a sinus infection. I took antibiotics and the headaches would return. Went back to the doctor and she diagnosed me as having a combination of allergy and migraine headaches. She recommended I get my eyes checked since the pain was concentrated around by right orbital socket, plus the headaches seemed to only come on while I was at work, where I was sitting in front of a screen for 8 hours. Went to the ophthalmologist , but he says that my eyes are fine and that I should see an ENT. Went to the ENT (by this time, I had started working PT because the headaches were bad and the customers didn\'t make it any better) who told me that the Afrin was/may be causing the headaches. He suggested that I get a turbinate reduction, as to eliminate the need for the Afrin, which constricts the blood vessels in the nose to help me breath through it. I decided to schedule the surgery for after the semester ( didn\'t help because I failed most of my classes due to me not attending because of the pain and the anxiety that it caused) Had the surgery this past December and was off from work for two weeks. No sign of the usual headaches during that time. Got back to work and after two days and thousands of dollars spent on the surgery and other medical treatments, the headaches return. I then decided that God was telling me, as usual, that I needed to move on from that job. I made plans to depart and I did that in February of this year. Within my time off from working outside the home, the headaches continue and I can feel it is due to the neck issue. They really screwed me up at the chiropractor.

I\'ve diverted from the original topic of this post, so much so, that I\'ve lost the original frustration that motivated me to write it. I\'ll stop now.
