There’s nothing wrong with me, other than the headaches

Headache is lurking again. Taking some advil for it. I remember being 16 and always getting headaches… my father asked me once what was wrong that I always had a headache. I could never really answer, I just kept asking for more tylenol. I’ve since switched to advil, it works better for me. I try to avoid actually taking anything for it when I can, but that’s tough when I’m at work. I would say it’s something computer related, but I’ve been getting these headaches since before I started spending all my time in front of a computer.

I’ve been tested for all sorts of stuff, too – endless blood tests and so on that found absolutely nothing wrong with me. Now I avoid going to the doctor as much as possible, since my last doctor completely brushed me off when I had a major problem and I was telling him so. When I went to a walk-in clinic a week later they checked me out and prescribed antiboitics and such, and it was gone in a few days – when I hadn’t been able to walk right for 3 weeks. Bastard ignored me and said it would go away. Whatever. Doctors suck. There’s never anything wrong with me, I just get headaches and occasional dizzy spells, and there’s nothing they can do about that. I go in for my yearly thing now, just to get that prescription renewed, and that’s about it.

I’m thinking about getting my leg checked out though… back in July sometime, I woke up one morning and stretched and pulled my leg, and it hurt all day, and the next day, and so on… well, it still hurts. That was a while ago.

I want this. Damn that ‘will ship to united states only’ crap. Damn my not being able to justify having a digital slr camera. Blah.

      Bedtime Story – Hand Hand Finger Thumb, nearly every night. Just ask my mom.

      I can still remember one nightmare I had when I was a kid, back when we lived in Aurora… I don’t remember where I ran to though.

      Headache’s still lurking, I’m going to avoid sugar today. How are you? 🙂

    Need a US Address?

    You could have it shipped to me and then you could pay for the shipping from here to Canada (can’t be that much can it?). Just let me know – I get stuff all the time here at work and at home – so what is one more package?

      Re: Need a US Address?

      Will see if it’s worthwhile to get the camera first… I’m sure bidding on it will drive the price way up.
