Hello...my doctor recently diagnosed me with rebound headaches. I have been on medication for 10yrs now. She wants me to come off of my medications, but wants to do it in a hospital so I can be monitored. I am a little hesitant to do so. I am wondering if anyone here has gone through this. If so, maybe you can tell me a bit about your experience and your results. I would really appreciate it. Thank YouView Thread
Sorry i've been MIA. No. I don't have a facebook. Everyone is on me about getting one, but i'm not sure. I would luv your e-mail address though. That would be great!!
How are you and your Mom doing now? Are you guys cool? I know what you mean. I often feel like the anger just consumes me. It's horrible. I can honestly say that I have an anger problem. Sometimes i'm afraid of what i'll do when i'm angry.
I feel like we are just getting worse and worse. Did your doctor suggest anything else?? Anything at all?? Our insurance has finally switched over, so now I am on the hunt for some doctors. I'm kinda scared to be honest. I know i've been to a bunch of doctors, but just knowing I have to do it all again with a new batch of doctors makes me really nervous and uneasy.
Thanks!! Glad to know someone's got my back in the big "NC". Now we just have to give you a gangster name!! Hahaha!! We can both be "S" Money!! I've decided i'm gunna keep it to myself for now. Noone has to know just yet that i'm damaged!! : l
I'm coloring my hair this week. I suggest it. I'ts kinda a new you!! You only live once right?? How was your New Years? Mine was ok.View Thread
Stephanie...how I wish I had your number so we can txt or something. I am soo emotional and can't stop crying. You're the ONLY person who gets where i'm coming from. I had a "Morphine" headache today, and when that happens, I get really angry. I have an anger problem. The anger goes away, and turns into saddness, and I can't get rid of it. I am freaking out about all the money I owe, I feel like such a burden, I feel so lonely. I'm scared about what might happen. I'm just a mess and all over the place. I need a pep talk please!!!!
You're in a dark place too?? How come? What's wrong?
I'm glad you found someone new and that he is a great guy. You deserve it. I'm kinda talking to someone right now. I don't know if we'll just become friends or more than, but he knows nothing about my problem. I think I want to keep it that way for a while. Sometimes I feel like I don't think I would be able to put up with all this baggage if the roles were reversed. That sounds bad huh??
Ugghh...I HATE going to the OBGYN. It is sooo not fun. I think all the crap you're taking is making you feel tired and horrible. I'm sure you will be fine, don't even think like that. Ha, look whose talking. But you're fine!! Mark my words!! I'm always right!! Lol. They don't call me Sandra for nothing!! Lol
I just got a trim today and am going back next week for color. I like something different. Do whatever your heart desires Luvy!!
New Years?? I'm not sure yet. What about you? How was your Christmas?View Thread
OMG...I am freaking the f*** out. So, remember how I told you I got super sick? This was before we started talkling. Anywho...I went to two hospitals in one week. Apparently, one was an indipendant like hospital and doesn't work with my insurance. As of today, I owe them $6,000. I started freaking out and crying when I found out. I don't have that kind of money. H***, i don't even have $600. What am I going to do?? I can't take much more of this s***. This year has been H***!! It started bad, and now it's ending bad. And my New Year is starting off bad too!! Ugghhh!! Lord Help Me!!
I do have to say tho, i've never given the guy a chance. Maybe I will. One Day!! I want brothers, or a brother!!
Yea...exs do that to you. I'm afraid to meet someone. "Hi, i'm Sandra, I have headaches that sometimes get soo bad I can't do anything. It consumes my whole life. Would you like to date me?" Not Cute!! I am the same way. So emotional!! Maybe it's the medicine doing this to us. What do you think? Ugghhh...my Dad's aunt claims to be ALL religious and comes at me with all that bulls***. It buggs me. Dumb old lady!!
Mixing both medicine together works even better. Who cares if they don't like that you protest. Tell them to suck it!! I hope week 2 goes better for you. I wish I can sit here and tell you to hold your head up, everything will be ok, blah blah blah, but I am in such a dark place right now, I just can't. I would be lying. Do it, cut your hair. It'll grow back. I'm the same, but I want to change my color. You know we're like this cause this is something that we can control and doesn't control us.
I did stop it, but the pressure was getting to be too much and I needed it to go down. It helps with the pressure, but sucks in all other aspects. Doll, I am soooo down!! I just don't know what to do.View Thread
Thanks...but I have to say, I am not a fan of Pauly Shore. But I will definitely take your word for it that those movies are funny!! Lol
OK...so, I looked up Tabaccoville cause I thought you were kidding. I have to say, I was very surprised. Lol.
Yea, a partial lie is waaay better than a full out lie. Lol. I know what you mean about feeliing like crap. The Diamox makes me feel like crap everyday. I swear I think it is slowly killing me. Okay...so maybe i'm over reacting but still, I HATE it!!
I am sooo glad to hear you talk like that. I hate when people don't understand my sarcasm. It's like "lighten up people, it's called a joke!!" I'm actually the only child, so i've never had brothers or sisters. Damn girl, someone upset you didn't they?? Lol. But yea, I understand. It bothers me when certain people tell me to just pray, and i'll be healed. I actually take it very offensively, "you don't frekin think i've been doing that for the past ten years of life!?" Don't stand there, insult me, act like you know what the h**l you're talking about, and open your mouth. Just mind your buisness, and don't speak unless spoken to!! Boooo Yaaaa!!!! How you like them apples?? But i'm not mad!! Hahaha!
My choice for a muscle relaxer is Soma. I take it with Ultram...a narcotic-like pain reliever. It works wonders. I am always sending you luck from Cali!! As far as that surgery, I don't know yet. I have to wait for the insurance to change the beginning of the year. I will surely keep you posted!!View Thread
Well...still, you were happy at one point, right? That's what i'm jelous of. I haven't been happy in a really long time, and nothing makes me happy anymore. But anywho...I live in Ontario California. About an hour away from Los Angeles and two hours away from San Diego. Where in North Carloina are you?
Yea...I feel you on the insurance thing. If it wasn't for my Dad's great insurance, I don't know where I would be. Probably with worse pain and never knowing why. We are very blessed my friend!! I'll get started on those lottery tickets for us!!
Hahaha!! Your Mom would not be happy if she knew. Tis Tis Tis. But who am kidding? I've totally done that!! Sometimes they just don't get it. But you gotta LOVE them for trying.
Aww...i'm glad you had fun. Yea, I was trying to imagine a CVS party. I wasn't sure how crazy you party animals get. Haayy!! Target!! Nice!! I now will imagine you all handing out Vitamins!! Hahaha...i'm kidding!! I'm super sarcastic and am always joking.
When I feel bummed out, I think of you too and it helps me to just vent to you. I kinda feel like I can just about tell you anything. I tell you a lot more than I tell my friends that I have known since High School. It's almost like you're my sister from another mister!! Hahaha!! I've always wanted to say that.
I was wondering when that appointment was going to happen. I think I tried Topamax when my headaches first started at 11yrs old. It didn't work for me though. So...Baclofen is not a pain med? Then what is it? I hope you see some improvement also. My fingers are ALWAYS crossed when it comes to you Doll. Keep me posted.View Thread
Well it is nice to meet you. I'm sure you know me by now. But if you have any questions, fire away. Everytime I would talk about you, I would refer to you as Carolina. Lol. Wow...20? Fiance? Own apartment? I'm soo jelous!! Well, i'm glad to hear you are in a better place. Both literally and figuratively. You don't need that bulls***.
Ugghh!! All these medical bills are weighing soo heavily on me. One...becasue my parents are helping me and I feel guilty, and two...because i'm covering some of them. You're right, the ER bills are a killer, and they wonder why people don't go to the ER to get help when they need it. Or they wonder why people don't pay their hospital bills. Cause it's too freaking expensive!! I have a solution!! We just have to win the Lottery!! What do you think!?
Hey, if the medicine is not helping you, just stop it. You're not loosing anything. When I stopped working for a bit, I didn't miss my job, I missed the girls I was friends with and I missed interacting with others. I felt soo isolated. That's what made me join here and I found you!! Did you go to the Christmas shindig? How was it? Do you CVSers get down and party like no other?? Hahaha!!
I would sooo be down for you coming to decorate my house. I would totally luv to meet you. I hope the pain leaves us both for good!! I've just accepted that this holiday season is gunna suck and to me, it's just another day. Jeez, can you say Grinch?? Hahah. I agree...smelling like a whore house is sooo not cute!!View Thread
OMG...I am sooo pissed off. This a**hole doctor just sent me a bill of $200. We already payed him $500 for all that he did, or didn't do. Now he wants more money!! I can't pay that sh**. I am sooo tapped out. I think he's charging me extra cause he's pissed we never went back. I'm the wrong girl to try to take advantage of!! UUUGGGHHHH!!!!
Anywho...yes, women need to take better care of themselves when it comes to hygiene. Ewww. When the smell is super strong, it gives me the worst headache. Or when they have super super strong perfume, like Channel, I can not take it.
I'm glad you helped your Mom and Tony decorate, that's so sweet to hear. My house is bare. My parents haven't said anything, so I don't know how they feel about it. We're all pretty bummed here though cause i've been taking Morphine every night for the past week. This pain is just getting worse and worse. I've gone back on the Diamox because I feel a lot of pressure in the brainstem area. I feel like i'm going backward. Don't even worry Doll...you will be back at work in no time. You'll be back, and complaining all about crazy a** customers!! You'll see.
Aww...i'm sorry you're getting longer lasting pain spikes. I hate those. You never know when they're coming. Surprisinlgy, all the medicine i've taken has not effected my cycle. The pill keeps me pretty regular so it works well.
Look at you Miss positivety!! How's this...i'll expect the worst, but hope for the best. How's that work for you? But as of right now, there is just no point in keeping my head held high Doll...just no point.
P.S. You said since you got back home? You lived on your own? How old are you? I'm 21. What's your name? If you don't want to say, it's cool. I'm just curious.View Thread
