My plans for the rest of November are just to stay on track and to help as many people as possible. :sparkling_heart::blush: Of course without over doing myself.

Aww, thank you @TheTravelWitch! Iโ€™m honored. I like sharing with yโ€™all, youโ€™ve become family since I joined.

Iโ€™m planning on Thanksgiving dinner. Even though I celebrate alone I make a big pan of stuffing and itโ€™s all for me! :drooling_face: And after dinner, I can watch a version of The Christmas Carol and start decorating for Yule! Iโ€™m thankful that this year my depression is better so I actually feel like doing stuff this year.

Congratulations @kasie! Thatโ€™s great & Iโ€™m so happy your depression is better & you feel like doing things also.

I have an appointment every day this week, except for Thursday. Which works out well for tea time. Tomorrow I see my neurologist for a migraine follow up & Iโ€™m bringing up this week long headache Iโ€™ve had. So hopefully she has some ideas. I do have to call about my CT scan, I havenโ€™t heard anything yet & I know my Dr wants to get that done.

Iโ€™m hoping for a refreshing week. I have some patient waiting to do & Iโ€™m going to find things to pass the time. I have some things to do in my room & the house. Get it back together again.

I hope everyone has a great week.

Thanks love! Itโ€™s nice to be feeling cheerful about the holidays for once.

Iโ€™m sorry your headache is still with you. I hope your doctor and the CT scans will help. At least you still have the headache, it would be just my luck that it would go away just as I went to see the doc about it. Good luck this week! :hugs:

Oh gosh, sorry this migraine thing is still going on :worried: but great you get to see a neurologist so quickly! I hope they get to the bottom of it and have it treated asap - Iโ€™ve been through very similar situations with migraines and itโ€™s taken years just to get them semi-manageable now. Sounds like you have a great team of docs though so fingers crossed itโ€™ll be a quick fix! :heart:

Thatโ€™s a beautiful goal for the rest of November, @Christina4! Share lots of love- and save some for yourself too :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

So glad your depression is doing better this year, @Kasie. And that sounds like a fantastic plan for Thanksgiving! Iโ€™ll be celebrating it solo this year as well (no Thanksgiving in Poland and no way to fly home with current restrictions). Cheers to more stuffing and turkey for us! :joy::+1:

True that, @LimeBerry :laughing: Hope you have an awesome week too!

Youโ€™ve got a busy week ahead, @Krissie117! :astonished: Glad you can make it for tea time and have a burst of enthusiasm for getting things done- you can do it, girl! And wishing you the best of luck with your neurologist visit :raised_hands:

A whole pan of stuffing! :drooling_face: And itโ€™s all mine! Mwahaha!

YEA!!! We are GROWING !!! WOWโ€ฆ

Congratulation @kasie I do love your Tarot Haikus and it is a joy to read your posts.

Looking forward to a ZOOM Thanksgiving. Not sure which PUMPKIN recipe to tryโ€ฆ I may go basic with just a pie for Dadโ€™s sake. Thanks for all the inspiration!

I saw my neurologist today, it was a breakthrough migraine that lasted for 6 days. I had read that long-lasting migraine can sometimes be from a magnesium deficiency, so I took some the other day and it subsided. My neurologist said to only take it for about 2 weeks and is prescribing a medication that I can take several days in a row for a migraine. However, anything over 2 days I have to call her so she can call in a steroid taper to bring down any inflammation. Iโ€™m still waiting to have my CT, but I have not had any more problems with the headache, so Iโ€™m doing okay.

Hahaha thatโ€™s the spirit @Kasie! :joy: Gosh I can already picture the post-Thanksgiving food coma we are going to have after all the tasty treats :yum::two_hearts:

A Zoom Thanksgiving sounds interesting, @Berta! And I know the feeling- so many pumpkin recipes to choose from! When in doubt, pie is always a great choice :pie::yum:

Glad to hear that both your neurologist and the magnesium seem to be helping- I hope the migraine clears up for good soon, @Krissie117! Be well :hugs::two_hearts:

@krissie117 I am happy to read that you are doing better and not suffering a headache at the moment. My mom used to get migraines and I always felt so bad for her. They used to say that certain foods could trigger them.- MSG and chocolate for instance. ??? Glad you have a good doctor. I will keep you in my thoughts!

@krissie117 Iโ€™m so glad your migraine is better now. Still, I worry. Good luck getting your CT done. And I hope your neurologist can help you find out about the cause. Sending you good vibes and snuggles.

Tell me about it. My blood sugar is going to be shot to hell. But itโ€™ll be worth it! LOL

Thank you, everyone. This migraine came on after exertion like a thunderclap. It was so sudden and intense. So I had to watch what I was doing. As soon as I hear anything about the CT I will let you know. Iโ€™m still patiently waiting for that to happen, even though the headache is gone now.

4 Likes

I hope they donโ€™t find anything, if you know what I mean. I hope it was just exertion or sometime simple like that.

3 Likes

@krissie117 It is odd to hope that they find nothing in your headโ€ฆperhaps better stated that they find you healthy and normal. I already know your heart is big and open so we donโ€™t want them to change that!!!

I hope they find everything to be where it is supposed to be and functioning within normal limits. Iโ€™ve never had a headache come on so hard and fast! It was scary. I will keep everyone posted.
