Jeff has muscular dystrophy.
Eli has asthma.
I have a headache.
I know, given the state of the world, it's hard to be too worried about headaches.
But I've had a headache since March.
So far, since May when I started getting serious, I have also:
stopped eating all wheat products for one month
had an MRI (which apart from an "artifact" was "normal")
been to the dentist to see if my jaw is mis-aligned
received 3 acupuncture treatments and taken some foul tasting herbs
been on and off the Pill
had air blown in my eyes to see if I need glasses
So I know alot about kooky medical devices and alot about what IS NOT causing these headaches - they're the annoying but usually not debilitating kind that pop up over my right eye - but still not what IS causing them. No one knows what's causing them, but they all say that most headaches are caused by muscle tension, which means I just have try harder to relax or something. With access to this much good health care, a great place to live, satisfying work and a sweet family I'm just not sure what I have to be tense about.
However, I'm certain that if I worry about it enough, I'll figure it out.
