Not so good afternoon

Maddie&EthansMom wrote: I dropped Ethan off at the sitter so I could volunteer at Maddie's school today. He loves it there...he goes right in and never misses a beat. He doesn't even realize I'm away..he has so much fun.

Anyway, I head to the school about 12:30 and I'm sitting at a stoplight when I notice the lady in the car in front of me put her car in reverse and starts backing into MY CAR!!!! I laid on my horn, but she just kept backing up. mad.gif The kicker is, apparently she didn't realize she was HITTING MY CAR and she just keeps pushing my car back!!! growl.gif Finally she pulls up, I get out of the car to check for damage and she opens her door, leans out and says "Did I hit your car?" No you freaking idiot!!! growl.gif mad.gif smash.gif I'm still SO MAD. There wasn't any damage...she didn't hit hard, but how STUPID can you be???? mad.gif

I finally get to Maddie's school to volunteer. Fridays are 'cooking' days and I had to mix pudding to look like mud. happy.gif There are 4 groups of 4 kids so I don't have them all at once *whew* The kids were was SO HOT in there, I hadn't eaten ALL DAY and I am so tired on top of all of that. Really, these kids were out of control. blink.gif I'm sure they were testing me which just infuriates me even more...I could NEVER be a teacher. nosmiley.gif It was fun for the most part, but I left with a migraine. The no eating, heat, rowdy kids thing did not mix well. unsure.gif The cutest part was when I walked in they all yelled 'VISITOR IN THE ROOM' and stood up. laugh.gif wub.gif Maddie got to introduce me and one little girl ran over and shook my hand and said "Welcome to our classroom Mrs. _______" wub.gif I felt like I was in Oz with all the munchkins. laugh.gif "We wish to welcome you to munchkinland"

I then had to go pick up a very sleepy Ethan, head BACK to the school to get Maddie and I was SO sick with my migraine that I went by and got some really fattening food in a drive thru, a HUGE Dr Pepper and took 2 Excedrin migraine pills..came home, ate and laid down on the couch a minute so my headache would go away. It is still lingering b/c Ethan didnt' stay asleep long enough. sad.gif

I don't feel worth a dang lately. I'm beginning to think there is something seriously wrong with me. No one should have headaches this often. It just isn't right. sleep.gif

Thanks for letting me vent. blush.gif

amynicole21 replied: I get them a lot too sad.gif I'm sorry that you had some bad spots, but for the most part your day sounds kind of nice, too wink.gif

mckayleesmom replied: Sorry Aimee....maybe you are coming down with a case of Mono or perhaps you are a little anemic ....maybe thats why you are so tired.

mckayleesmom replied: Also...have you tried going to a chiropractor? You might not even feel like you have neck or back pains. I use to get headaches alot. 1 Time I had a headache for over a month and someone suggested a chiropractor...I went and my headache was gone after that.

Maddie&EthansMom replied: I was seeing my chiro regularly (twice a week) and my headaches did subside some. I was just thinking this morning that I need to make an appt. Thanks for the reminder! thumb.gif

MM'sMama replied: hug.gif I'm so sorry honey. I can't believe she didn't notice blink.gif blink.gif. I hope you feel better hug.gif

Stress will definitely cause LOTS of headaches/migraines. I had them so much that I saw every specialist, doctor, etc, etc, etc and took every pill they could perscribe me. The doctors one last chance to save me was biofeedback and that was the cure all to my headaches/migraines. It taught me how to deal with my stress in a way that I could relieve my own migraine pain. Sure it doesn't work all the time but most of the time.

If you are feeling stressed a lot this could be the problem. hug.gif

TANNER'S MOM replied: Oh man.. you had a day.

Hugs.. and I think the doctor ordered a glass of wine..!

punkeemunkee'smom replied: Aimee have your iron checked or just start taking some iron-natural food grade works best-I have chronic anemia and if I get very low I can not function and I get LOTS of headaches...Check your local health food store-the food grade doesn't have all the nasty side effects that can be caused by iron in multi-viatimins! hug.gif Hope you feel better!

~Roo'sMama~ replied: grouphug.gif Sorry Aimee sounds like you had a rough day!! I used to get migraines at least once a week and going to the chiropractor regularly stopped them completely for me. Actually going to a regular chiropractor helped a little, but a few years ago I started going to a NUCCA chiropractor and that's what got rid of my migraines - now I only get them if I haven't gone in awhile. biggrin.gif I hope you can get some help for them soon migraines are NO fun. sad.gif hug.gif hug.gif

mysweetpeasWil&Wes replied: I don't know what to tell you because I honestly never get headaches. But sorry, sorry, sorry for your crummy day!! Hope the weekend is better for you!


ediep replied: wow, tough day! Hope today is better

I get headaches a lot too, my doc thought it might be my BC pills, so he changed them and I am still getting headaches.

gr33n3y3z replied: that sounds like a bad day all around
I hope your feeling better today

Maddie&EthansMom replied:
Thank you for the suggestion. Scotty was just asking me last night what I need to be taking. I have iron pills, but I hate them. Like you said, they have some not so pleasant side effects. happy.gif

Maddie&EthansMom replied:
I've been wanting to try biofeedback. I do certain things now that help, but only in conjunction with meds. I'm not a med person. I HATE taking pills. I think this is what frustrates me the most about having headaches. I simply cannot get rid of them without my migraine med. sad.gif

Can you tell me more about biofeedback?

Maddie&EthansMom replied:
Really I should have never stopped going to my chiro, but she is so far away. It helped so much and I was really starting to notice a difference.

What is NUCCA? blush.gif

~Roo'sMama~ replied:
Yeah mine is about an hour away now since we've moved, so I only go now if I start getting neck aches again - sometimes I wait until I'm actually getting migraines to finally break down. rolleyes.gif

NUCCA chiropractors don't crack you neck or back, they only adjust the atlas - the very top vertebra - it's supposed to be the one that sort of controls the rest of your spine, so if it's in alignment the rest of your body will adjust itself. It's a little weird... the first couple of times I went I thought it was hokey because you can hardly feel them doing anything. They don't use much pressure - but it has helped me a lot. I can almost always feel a difference right away.

Here's a couple links on it: NUCCA homepage Discover NUCCA

Thanks Sara! thumb.gif

coasterqueen replied:
Well they hook you up to these monitor things to monitor your heartbeat and a bunch of crap on your forehead and chest area. tongue.gif Not sure what it does but the lady looks at that while talking to you. You are sitting in a very comfy relaxing chair in a dark-ish room and that nice soft feel good music is on. Then she kinda treats you like a patient trying to find out things that might be bothering you in the present, maybe things from your past, etc, etc, etc. She helps you deal with some of those issues on the surface level. Then she helps you find a "safe place" that you can go in your head every time you feel stress. Like a mental picture. Then she has you sitting in your safe place and has you visualize pushing the headache away however that would be for in your safe place. Kind of hard to describe but it's really neat. When I did this I could feel the headache leaving certain parts of my head and out the back of my neck. Very hard to explain and sounds kinda kooky but it's really neat and works!

Maddie&EthansMom replied:
Actually that sounds really awesome. Especially since I think most of my headaches are due to stress. I can actually feel one coming on when I hold everything in. It would be cool to learn how to 'push them out' kwim?

Thanks Karen! hug.gif I will look into that some more. Like I said, I do some relaxation stuff similar to that, but it is more of focusing on other things, body parts and more relaxing places, etc.
