Recently I've felt like there's not enough space in my head. When my injections wear off I end up with constant background migraines which cause a lot of head burning, and an intense swelling feeling, along with nausea and visual disturbances, even if I'm not crying and vomiting like I would be during a main … Continue reading Headspace
I have no good blog titles in me at the moment. I spent a lot of today literally unconscious in bed from a 10/10 migraine. It's better than it was now because I'm out of bed, but I still don't feel amazing. Thankfully I get another dose of my injections the week after next, I … Continue reading Things that are not specifically a snail
This is mostly gonna be about my mouth issues. I've got an update about my actual mouth that I'm slightly concerned about. I've pixellated parts of this photo because apparently it didn't occur to me not to eat a cereal bar before checking my teeth via photos. Not only is there visible pus on … Continue reading Wisdom woes
I went to the hospital yesterday and had another dose of migraine Botox. I felt it wearing off around a month ago, meaning that I need to get doses every other month, as my previous one was in December. My headaches were getting longer and more severe around February 18th, and things like nausea and … Continue reading My 3rd migraine Botox
Onabotulinum toxin A has once again come through for me. I finally had my second dose of migraine injections. The waiting period was still a couple of hours, but I was taken into a ward bay straight away and I came prepared this time, I didn't have too bad of a headache so I got … Continue reading The miracle of nerve toxins
Almost three weeks by the time I'm actually writing this. It's fun being married. I know not a lot actually changes day to day, but there's a weird undercurrent of contentment. As I said before, we love all our presents, but the biggest news is probably that we have a dishwasher! It's not a cure-all … Continue reading Two weeks married!
Eight years ago, it was 2010 and I met Will. We started dating after 2 days, moved in together after 2 weeks, and into a flat of our own after 2 months. I was hoping we'd continue the pattern and get married in 2 years, but life got in the way. It turned out we … Continue reading We got married!
This past weekend was quite busy. Ben came to see us on Friday and he took Will suit shopping for the wedding. Mike and my bestie Kadek also came over and we played some games and did some drinking. Kadek and me hung out in the nighttime while the other three went to bed, we … Continue reading Sleepless
Not a lot of especially interesting stuff happened in the past week, but it was a bit of a weird one anyway. Also for some reason, in the post before last, photos that were uploaded in the portrait orientation, became landscape after I published the post. I don't know how to sort that out, they … Continue reading The mediocre week
As the title may suggest, it is coming up to 2 weeks since I got my injections for migraines. It has been interesting so far. The effect is meant to be cumulative, but some places are very obviously already paralysed. Mainly, my forehead seems very frozen in place. My eyebrows can still move, but my … Continue reading 2 weeks since I got needled in the head
