I was really enjoying life with less headaches and muscle spasm. The fall went by in a hectic blur of activity. My days were filled with me trying to do as much as I could. I was exercising everyday, and doing household chores with out a skullbusting headache. I have been cooking more and even baking.
Two weeks ago I thought that it would be ok to throw the soccer ball to warm the keeper on Jessica's soccer team up. I only threw the ball to her about eight times, but I guess that it was eight too many....I have had terrible headaches since and two days ago it turned into the skullbuster again.
Once again, I really do not know how I am going to get through this,....I know that I will, but I wonder how

Two weeks ago I found a recumbent bike, that I thought that I could ride. I have not been able to go for a bike ride in more than five years. I used to frequently go for bike rides with Samuel and Jessica. So, I asked Steven if he could buy me an early birthday present, and he did. I can ride this bike. I love riding this bike. The first ride along the river, with Jessica...I cried happy tears of joy. Until something lost or taken away...we do not appreciate it fully! I am getting better and I love every minute of it. I am so thankful to be able to be more active and productive.

I have had more good days than bad in the last month for the first time in three years. I love the feeling of no headache at all and even with the lesser headache that I have been having when I do too much, I feel better than I was. I am very tired with the medication, so I drink a lot of coffee during the day to offset that. I like coffee...so that is not so bad. Anyway, because I have been feeling better the last month has been full of lots of laughs and fun. I exercise everyday, and found a bike that I can ride, so I go for nice bike rides by the river....JOY!!!! I love getting better, and dream of more, and working!!!

I have been having trouble ever since I fell down the stairs on May 29th. I kept thinking and saying tomorrow will be a better day...and it was not coming. So, Finally I went to my Doctor again and said I can not stand the side effects of these medications that are not helping anymore. Maybe I should of had more patients with them, but I am running out. My pharmacist had suggested a different drug, which a friend of mine had suggested a few years ago. Although back then I did not know what I know now about the cause of my headache and neck muscle tightness and spasm. My Doctor was quite willing to try it...so day 4 of the new drug and lots of rest. It is not making a difference that I can tell yet but, I do feel better being off of the gabbapentin. Wish me luck, I will blog again as I am feeling better.
