For right now, I'm feeling happy about being recently, Friday, suggested that the doctor suspects I have CH. I have had periods for years of headaches but am not one to go to the doctor. Many nights awaken around 1:00, a handful of aspirin or tylenol, a half pack of cigarettes, a few glasses of wine, pacing the kitchen floor, but always feeling better just before the alarm goes off to go to work. But the last 5 weeks have been a nightmare. In 5 weeks, I have slept all night maybe twice. The pain is lasting into the morning, on the drive to work and into the day. An awful plane ride 1200 miles away for a few weeks to take care of my mom for a few weeks only added to the delay of going to the doctor. My body, my mind, my character has dewindled to the point that I had to go no matter what he said. I was sure the news was going to fateful, tumor, cancer, disfiguring surgery. To all of you I know this will sound weird but I now feel that there is hope for me. I now know that there is a managable treatment. I now feel that this will pass. I now feel that I can cope with this. I hurt as I write this but trust that the tylenol will kick in and I will be able to sleep awhile tonight. I had an MRI done this morning and will learn the results in a week. Sorry for the long post, but am looking for some comfort nonetheless. I'm lucky to have such a tolerant and understanding family that knows when to give Dad some space right now.
