Migraine headaches. That's right. It's official. I officially suffer from the family female curse. I didn't want this to happen and I fought it. I denied that it was happening. ...but, the doctor broke the terrible news to me the other day. She shattered my beautiful state of denial and ignorance with four terrible words, "You have migraine headaches." I pleaded with her. I begged her to say it isn't so. ... but she did it ... she wrote it in my chart anyway. Nooooooooo!
At least I was partly right. I have been getting tension headaches, apparently due to tension and stress?!? When I broke the news to John we were driving home from band practise. He asked me where the stress was coming from. Hahahahaha. I said, turn around. He did, and saw the faces of our beautiful boys smiling back at him! (maybe I can blame the grey hair on them too!)
So, the doctor said my shoulders and neck are extremely tight and it's causing the tension headaches which are now moving very quickly into migraines.
So ... Mom, Joanne, and Cathy - move over and make room for me on the couch. I feel a migraine coming on!
