My head hurts. It's been two weeks, and it just won't stop. I've been to urgent care, the hospital, and my regular doctor. Now, I've got a referral to a neurologist and an appointment with a new endocrinologist to sort out the source of this pain. It's not a normal headache--I don't know how to describe it. It's a whole other sort of head pain. It's coming from deep inside. Of course, having a tumor hanging out at the bottom of my hypothalamus means I try to be extra-aware of things going on in and with my head. To give you an idea of how close together it all is in there, here's a diagram:
And if pondering the inside of your head wasn't enough to weird you out, here's something that definitely will: a view of the inside of my head from my latest CT scan.
What's funny is, when I saw the CT scan image above, the first thing I thought was "Wow, you can even see how big my nose is on an effing x-ray. Sweeeet."
I guess we've all got our insecurities. Ha.
Now, I know that I haven't posted on here in quite awhile, but don't worry--I haven't abandoned this blog! Not at all. I've just been busy planning a wedding (yes! yay!!) and trying to keep all the other parts of my life running too. I'll get this head thing figured out one way or the other. To end the post on a lighter note, below is a photo of Festivus, one of my family's dalmatians. This photo is of one of his spots, and I promise it wasn't photoshopped at all--he really does have a spot in the shape of a heart. That's enough to cheer just about anyone up. :-)
Happy Thursday to all, and to all a good night.
