You Belong in 1989

Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.
What Year Do You Belong In?

well who would've guessed. for those who are curious, i was 8 years old in 1989. a funny quiz. :) let me know if any of you take it.

(also, scroll down for footwear friday)

i'm hoping to get back into blogging more regularly. #1 for an emotional outlet. #2 to keep far-away family updated. talking about doctor's appointments and diets and pills feels like my life sometimes, but telling the same story over and over...you get the idea. posting it here lets family (and friends!) keep up to date w/o having to call me and ask how i'm doing, what i'm trying.

so. how i'm doing today - really bad. the headache was just horrific when i woke up, and has subsided into miserable as i rest in bed. i'm still in the bad cycle that started about 2 weeks ago. my homeopathic doctor said it would get worse before it got better....and it has most decidedly gotten worse. i'm just keeping my fingers crossed for the better part! i'm still following my no sugar, no wheat, no dairy diet, and getting more used to it. i have eaten and entire jar (16 oz.) of almond butter in the month or so i've been on the diet. whoa. the bad cycle is supposed to resolve itself (and move onto the improvement) very soon, within the next 2 weeks. keep your fingers crossed for me!

tomorrow we're having spencer's lab group (and their wives/kids) over for dinner. i'm really looking forward to it, and looking forward to waking up tomorrow morning and taking my pain meds. sweet relief!

Oh dear girl, I wish you felt better. I wish there was something magical I could do to make it better. I know what it feels like inside your head and it is a rotten awful heavy feeling. I used to describe my headaches and the way I felt inside as having a heavy grey enormous cloud inside my head. Everything fresh and light and upbeat was gone, replaced by this heavy ugly dark thing that was next to impossible to think your way through. You are such a lovely girl and it should feel light and soft inside your head, not heavy and painful. It isn't right. I don't know why we have this problem. I don't know why nothing works.
Do keep us posted on the diet and the homeopath. I wonder about all of this. Sleep (regular) was the only thing that seemed to help my headaches, getting 9h per night, regularly. Even then I still had them, but the edge was off. Oh, and staying away from caffeine. And intellectual overstimulation (meetings, crowds) often triggered them. But I tried many things and little worked. So I wish you well. I know there are things that work as everyone is different.

Don't give up.

You know what the funny thing is - I woke up thinking about YOU this morning. Don't ask me why. But I thought that I hadn't visited your blog for a while and then I came downstairs and you had posted on my blog. What an amazing coincidence!

Thinking of you, Terri xo

I'm so sorry you're not feeling well. I'm hoping with you that the better of the cycle will come soon, very soon.

As for me, apparently I belong in 1975. I am "Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!" Hahahaha! I was born in 1978. Missed 1975 entirely, darn it!
