I went to the doctor’s office. The blood tests came back basically fine, although my blood sugar was a little bit low (not surprising considering I hadn’t eaten that day.)

He doesn’t want to send me to a neurologist unless I keep track of the headaches. I guess “I Have a headache pretty much all the time” doesn’t count. Cyn thinks I should get a new doctor.


I would much rather he have said “there are horrible things wrong with you,” and given something a name. I hate being told that I should be perfectly fine, and there’s no reason for me to be worried. I’m sorry, but I’m fucking sick of being told that it’s anxiety, it’s all in my head, it’s nothing to worry about. I would rather know it’s something, even something bad. At least then I would know what I’m dealing with, and I wouldn’t feel like such a complete idiot for wasting the doctor’s time or something.

      I always have a headache, pretty much. I’ve been off work for 3 weeks, I don’t think I’m exactly stressed… I haven’t slept in about 2 weeks, really. Not slept well, anyhow.

        take two aspirin and…….

        sleep, sleep is fun,
        gotta remember it is a required thing or something, i haven’t slept as much as i usually do the past couple days, which is leaving me a little cranky…
        it the headache more in the muscles on your temples or neck or whatever or is it internal?

          I haven’t slept lately not because I haven’t tried to.

          neck, temples, sometimes it moves around. sometimes it just feels like someone’s got a belt around my head and is tightening it slowly… that whole head in a vice thing. Sometimes it’s minor, sometimes it isn’t. I get it when I try to do anything physical… like walk.
