This may be my last entry…
I’m feeling a bit better. I feel tired and a bit fuzzy but I feel like things are on the up. The pain went away during the night and, although it has threatened to return a couple of times during the day, it looks like it’s not coming back. My face is feeling stronger too. It could just be my imagination but Mrs CthuIu has agreed that my blinking is becoming a little more synchronised and my eyes are looking a little more symmetrical.
I’m not out of the woods yet and I’m not counting any chickens but I’m feeling a little more positive – even if the worst comes to the worst and complications aside, things can only get better from here on. No matter what though this has been a wake up call. I’m not in great shape and all the good work I did with my health a couple of years back has gone all to hell. I can’t make promises (hence the first line of each blog entry) but I can’t leave things like this – I’m stronger than that. I’ll wait until Tuesday to find out what has happened and I won’t put all of my hopes on the hemiplegic migraine theory but I will start to look after myself.
I’ve already started to think about what might be best for my future and I’ve made a couple of decisions that will help in the future. I can’t be swayed by people just because I don’t want to hurt their feelings – I’ve got to think of me and mine a little more and deal with the consequences as and when they arise. I need to dodge the stress and those that heap it on me and I need to be a little more tolerant of the people I perceive to be in my way (figuratively and literally).
Tomorrow is another day and we should all be thankful for that.
Thanks for reading, now live in the moment a little more and I’ll see you soon
