It's been awhile...

Which in the world of ugly diseases can be either a good thing or a bad. In my case that is good. I mean I have my days where there is an ache in head, sometimes a throb, but the pain in manageable! I just had a check-up this last month with the pain management dr and all is well! Our course of action seems to be working!

I asked her once again is it ok that I take 2-4 Excedrin Tension a day?? She said yes! She said that is why I check your liver every 6 months. She told me that I really needed to pay attention to what caused my headaches. I know what they are:
Lack of sleep- can't control I have way to much to do and not enough in the world to do it.
Weather- can't control when it is going to rain
Stress- can't control who is going to make me angry in a given day

The one thing she did say that would help me is to take more time for myself... really I have 2 jobs, 2 kids and a husband and where do I find that???

All in all things are going good on managing this ACM1 and the longer I can hold off on surgery the better!!
