Oof, blogging regularly is turning out to be a real challenge for me. The Dream, as it has always been, is that someday I will be well enough to juggle work, blog, new writing, and goodness gracious, I guess a personal life?! Currently, I’m weeks behind on work (including housework, sorry honey!), so I’ll make this quick.
Last week, I started going to the Texas Migraine Clinic. I’m cautiously optimistic. You can check out their website for yourselves, but the basic principle is that my migraines/headaches are caused by a bulging disk in my neck. Through targeted exercises and some hardcore rest, my body should be able to repair the disk on its own. It looks like a daunting uphill battle for the next year, but if it works, maybe that hyper-productive Dream life, or some version of it, could become my reality.
I have so many things I want to write about – what I’m reading, what I’m watching, what I’m listening to, the garden I’m starting – but adult responsibilities are looming over my shoulder, and I need to beat them back before I can properly focus on writing anything.
After two straight weeks of awful pain, I just hope this week is tolerable enough to accomplish the bare minimum. Wish me luck!
