Can anyone out there tell me if this has ever happened to them? My daughter was having a hard adjusting to 1st grade so I scheduled an appt. with her teacher before school. On that morning I was about a Level 4 on the Kip Scale and was dreading going in. I couldn't concentrate on what the teacher was saying and even broke down and started to cry a little. Told the teacher I wasn't feeling well and had to leave. As I left the building the handicap bus had just pulled up and I watched as a little girl was being taken off the bus in a wheelchair. Her arms were bent and crooked and strapped to the wheelchair and she was drooling. Our eyes met and she smiled at me. I walked over to her and told her she looked pretty. Again she smiled.
I walked back to my car feeling ashamed. I knew the headaches would go away at some point but this little girl was in that wheelchair for life. As I was driving
to work I was massaging my head and wondering if I'd even make it thru the workday. And then I realized that
from the time I saw the bus, until I got into my car, I
don't remember being in pain. Was it because I was so
totally focused on that little girl?? And if this is true, why can't I do it at will.? There's plenty of times at work when I NEED to focus on something and I just can't BECAUSE of the pain. Piper told me that this
has happened to her also. Anyone care to comment?
