Like clockwork, almost exactly a year to the day of my last episode....the demons have returned. The severity doesn't seem to be as bad as last time but I'm sure they'll get worse before they get better...they always do. I guess I'm luck in that it's has been a year without suffering and I have much to be thankful for, but the demon always make things seem bleaker than they actually are. I am eating tylenol like pez, the doc will probably want me to take some prednisone. I personally haven't had much luck with this course of treatment. Last year they gave me imitrex but the commercial for it scared me so bad I didn't have the nerve to take it. I had visions of my heart bursting out of my chest like the birth scene from "Alien". I am a big fat slob and take zestril and lipitor to keep the old ticker from blowing up as is. Don't be fooled by my apparent lack of self-esteem, I'm actually a cocky bastard (it's the demon talking). Sorry for not keeping in touch since last year, I guess when the pain is gone the last thing I want to think or talk about it the pain. Not very supportive I know. At lunch I went to the 7-11 and got the biggest friggin slurpee they had and slammed it thinking this might be an innovative new course of treatment...or that the brain-freeze pain would out-hurt the demon and give me a distraction. DO NOT DO THIS. There's no worse pain than a brain freeze on top of the demon. I had to sit in my truck and cry for a good ten minutes. Anyway thanks for letting me rant. Stay sane.
