Hello fronds — so, my increasingly-constant headache-thing was becoming a problem, and then we discovered that my normally low blood pressure is suddenly quite high… like, borderline hypertensive-crisis head-straight-to-the-ER high. So that’s being managed aggressively (it’s better, but it’s not…great) and between the constant headaches and the doctors’ appointments and blood draws and the new drugs and lying in bed feeling f’ing sorry for myself (have I mentioned the constant headaches?) I just …. can’t string two interesting sentences together right now. I may have done this to myself by regularly taking well-within-guidelines doses of imitrex and advil, in which case it should subside. Or, it’s something else. Also I’d like to remove the center of my face, thankyouverymuch. It’s not migraine. It’s not tension headache or sinus. Facial gremlins, I tell you.
I can’t even look at my computer screen for long, so no Netflix bingeing.
Anyhoodle, fear not. I have all sorts of support and suggestions and exciting medical specialist referrals to follow up on. Fingers crossed I’ll be back to what I laughingly refer to as normal in short order.
So, if I find out I have high blood pressure that will need to be treated long-term, and you have any words of wisdom you want to share, feel free to comment. I know nothing about it, although I’m learning fast. Cheers.
