The Silver Lining


The last month has been rough for me. I have had a moderate to severe headache for 28 days (as of today) save 3-4 days. It's been miserable. Pain meds don't work on me so I haven't been able to get any relief at all. Not even a trip to urgent care and a shot in the boo-tay of meds stronger than morphine could ease my pain. Of course my doctors were of no help either. For some reason a non-stop headache and missing several days of work is no big deal in their eyes.

Anyways...I finally convinced my doctor to order a CT scan. While I was convinced I had the worst possible outcome heading my way, there were other plans for me. Thank God! I got my results back early this week. I have a severe sinus infection. So. extremely. happy. Never been more excited to be sick with a bad cold!!

It's strange since the front of my head/face doesn't hurt and I haven't felt stuffy. Then again, I've never had a sinus infection so I don't know what they are supposed to feel like. Maybe the pressure just affected me differently than most.

I guess none of that matters because with antibiotics I should be all better very soon!

It may have taken me a month to figure out what was going on with my health but I am thankful for the silver lining - YOU!


I am blown away at the love, care, and support that have come from you all, my fellow bloggers and twitter pals. It's amazing just how strong my friendships have become with many of you - 99% of which I have never actually met in person. Please know that I appreciate each and every one of you. Thanks for being amazing ♥

My cousin had the same problem with headaches. She had a CT scan done and from there, things got better. So, I hope things we get better for you. :)

Oh my goodness, thank God it was nothing worse than a sinus infection! I get so anxious about these things that I almost wish I could just have regular CTs and MRIs and whatever else they can do to convince you that you are indeed NOT DYING, haha! I am crossing my fingers and saying a prayer that your headaches go away!

I didn’t know you weren’t feeling well and I’m so sorry you had to deal with it for a month. I’m also sorry I wasn’t around to talk to you. Boo me. On the bright side, thank goodness it was just a sinus infection and that is so great that you got a CT scan to know for sure.

It’s very true that when things like this happen and then everything turns out to be okay, we must be thankful and appreciate our health.

I love the beautiful photos that you posted. I think these are all from your Vancouver trip.
