15 May 2013. Thirty days to my next birthday. Thirty-one days to my next 5K Race. Am I excited? Oh Yes I Am! *lol* Guess it didn’t bother me much about the age increase.. I’m just looking forward to all the good things that can/will take place in my life. Whatever it may be – Que Sera Sera.
And today, it marks a very big step in my own world.. I finally get my first appointment with the NNI Specialist done – after years of ignoring, delaying, procrastinating, living in fear; I finally did it.
Just about a month ago, I experienced one of the worst migraine attack ever. No I didn’t vomit and get red-eye but it lasted for two days, synfalx, caffox and whatnots just didn’t work it anymore.. Sleeping in the dark air-conditioned room with ice pack on my head didn’t no nothing either. And yes, sniffing on lavender oil, listened to calm soothing zen-inducing sounds didn’t do either. Hmm what else? Oh.. I did all I can – prayers, the EFT tapping – nada! zilch! nothing.. Anyhoo, that finally gave me strength to just go out there and get that referral from the Polyclinic and get it done.
So today, I met with a Dr Lee. The consultation was just a series of question & answer type of moment. A check of my BP and that was it! He just went on and on and on with the names of meds I should ‘try’..
He also sent me for a scan appointment. I decided to get it done straight away. And almost immediately, I realized I was all set and ready to be ‘in space’. What shocked my system was.. the fact that I will be ‘poked’ *lol* – a jab was needed for them to deliver the Contrast via my veins. My theory whenever in fear? – Always LAUGH at it! So I honestly requested for them to sing me a song! *lol* Of cos they didn’t *lol* but we all had a good laugh and I calmed down a little and my vein suddenly decided to appear..
Minutes later, I had my first experience going through this –
It sure felt like I was in some kinda science fiction movie *lol*
Anyways, I was just glad everything went smoothly. I managed to rush and pick MiLittlestChica from school though a little late but the teachers were all kind enough to wait for me.. The cab ride home was smooth and easy and it was a lot better with nice jazz tune that cabbie had on. And as always, CheekyBabyMunster updated MiLittlestChica of the adventure I had this afternoon and look what I got..
So blessed right? Okay.. time check, 2328hrs. Been two hours since I took this soon-to-be-a-nightly pill. It kinda surprised me to realize that I’ve been prescribed an anti-depressant to help ease my migraine. Thank heavens for this forum I came upon, it made me feel alright to just give this a go..
Alrighty then.. Let’s see how this goes.. I’m feeling a lil hungry now but I’d rather sleep on it. Till next post.. I wish you all well..
