Oh, my aching......


Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I am ?*#$! years old and I have not had headaches since 3rd grade! NOT ME! Yep, me! Nearly every single day of my life I have had some type of headache: tension (NOT ME!), sinus, migraine...yep! yep! yep! Not to mention 2 bulging disks in my neck! No, no! Not me!

So, this past weekend, guess where I spent several hours? The hospital ER? Not me! Yep, you, Lolli! For 2 stinkin' days I had tried and tried to get rid of this thorn in my flesh through sleep, heat, cold, OTC meds, prescription Rx, stretching...all for naught! Finally the Mr. comes home and asks if there's anything he can do to help! "Yeah", I said! "Cut my head off! It would at least feel better!" Then HE said, "NOT ME!" (funny how things get turned around, isn't it!) After a bit more misery, I succumbed to a trip to the ER for IV meds.

I register; they triage me for more registration, then put me in a room; then another registration person comes in to ask the same dadgum questions for the 3rd time! I'm thinking hearing aids might be in order around there! Finally a nurse comes in (the light was off in my room) and says, "You have a headache?" I SO wanted to say, "No I love hanging around in the dark! Here's your sign!" But would I have done that? NOT ME! Well, on second thought......just sayin'......

A few hours later and with the edge knocked off the pain, to home we returned, praying all the while the extreme pain would never return. And for the next 2 days I slept some more! Quite frankly, all this sleeping has made me tired! Even writing this all out and reading it has worn me out and given me a hea.....NO! Never mind! JK!

Be blessed today!

I'm not usually a headache sufferer. (Except a couple of days during "that" time). I am sorry that you are experiencing this type of pain. I hope that you will feel better soon.

Lolli/Lisa, I am so sorry that you have been suffering with headaches for so long. I have had them too,...for over 30 years. (Not daily of course,..but monthly and sometimes more than that, and sometimes less) So hon, I can totally feel for ya.

I will be praying for you.
Feel better soon sweet lady.

Wow I'm sorry that you had such a bad weekend. I've had a few migraines before and there is nothing else like that pain. Glad you feel better. Take care, Becca
