Oooh My Head

Here's how out of it I've been of late... Bear in mind I usually post when something even as far from interesting as you get happens, I've missed a few key moments of late.

The Weather:
Yes, England had snow, and while the north got a fair few inches, the rest of us got a mere dusting. Once again, in True Brit fashion, the country ground to a halt. Cars abandoned, roads closed, train services and airlines not running... Oh, and all spread across the front pages of everything. It didn't even stay on the ground for more than 36 hours!

The Telly:
Celeb Big Brother and it's racism row. I don't watch it at the best of times, let alone when it's the celeb version. But it's all that the press has been squealing about of late. Bless.

Tamsyn:
Has used the potty. Has also started coming out with occasional words that you can hear mixed in with the babble-blabble.

Me:
Got a call last week from the surgery - seems the optician was worried about my constant headaches and very-regular migraines, and wanted me referred to the Neurological Unit in Hospital. Yikes. Doctor wanted to see me first, see what was what, and I went today...

Lovely woman, filling in for my current doctor who is on suspension for "Out of date practices". Woot. Anyway, I went into great detail about my headaches, how they start, how they go, how they last, what happens, etc etc. Seems I have a extra-high rate of Migraine with Aura, and we're starting on yet another kind of medication that could help, and if not, we try another, then another, and maybe a preventative instead of a curative. All very interesting stuff, and has answered a lot of questions, especially the "Aura" part, which are something else that comes along as sort of a warning sign.

So I can rest easy and not worry about what's happening inside my noggin. Now when I get a Migraine, I have to pop a Sumatriptan tablet, and if it doesn't help, another 2 hours later. If that doesn't help, tough - no more for 24 hours!

Jo had another meeting with her bereavement councillor this morning and I was there with her, sort of out the way while I read the info on my head. Woman is lovely, and after a while, she started chatting to me. I felt like I was intruding, but both Jo and her were happy for me to be there. I spoke about some stuff, and we discussed a few bits and bobs that seem to make sense, but I will leave that to Jo to post about. Needless to say, we spoke about some more hard stuff once again, but I can understand what she was talking about.

And lastly - I've been saving up all the Meme thingies from the last month to hit out in one fel-swoop. While Christine has done one, Cass has been a busy (bored!) little bunny and done a load. So the post after this one is VERY long winded!

And as a side note, has it ever occured to anyone that these Meme things could be used for nefarious deeds, such as burglary or identity theft? If you read enough from one person, you can put together a pretty good picture of hours they keep, where they go and who they are with, personal family information, what you have of value, important dates and anniversaries...

Or is that just my paranoia striking? Give it a thought ;)

I've been hearing that we should take our kids names off the blogs and give them little "pretend names" ... and from what I hear..
you are right... we should be careful about what we say on our blogs ...
there are predators all over the internet that LIVE to steal from us and cause harm ....

Geez, I will never ever place an ad in the paper after I hear of home invasions being done thru ads in the paper...
Oyyee.. you can never be too careful....

Not everyone is as honest as we!

Man! I came over to tell you I don't believe you, but I just can't. You've got a lot on your plate! You deserve a lot of peace of mind and peace of heart. I hope you get it ASAP!

And thanks so much for the comment on my blog! I'm sure all will be fine...it's just scary waiting to find out.

Dan, sounds like you've been busy taking care non-fun stuff. I hope your new meds help the headaches. I'm glad that the bereavement councillor is a good one. I hope it helps both you and Jo. This time of year is really tough and I hope she can help you through it a bit better.

If anyone wants my identiy - they can have it! I don't know ONE person who wants to be me! lol! And if they want to come and take my stuff while I'm gone... too bad. I NEVER LEAVE THE HOUSE! haha.. Well, practically never. There's almost always somebody here.

Also, Terri, I was told a long time ago to NEVER post on my website that my hubby is a cop. Hhhhmmmm... I think I just did.

Anyone who has read my blog from the very start will note that it never mentioned our real names ... I used pseudonyms. It was only when I started the fundraising that I utilised our real names as I needed to be transparent to people. However being closely involved in a law enforcement area I am very aware of what goes on. I guess it came down to the passion to raise some funds and get awareness won over the risks.
