Days like today are hard. I’ve been fighting a headache all day. I stand up and the pressure to my head gets worse. I’m lightheaded and dizzy too. It’s bothering me so much it’s difficult to even walk around the house.
I want to help my mother decorate the house and finish making Christmas cookies, but I can’t stand up without being in pain. I want to exercise, so I can keep in shape, but doing anything hurts. I’ve taken pain medication and used all of my usual tools for trying to fight a headache (eaten chocolate and had some soda pop, ice pack, etc), but I still haven’t been able to kick this. The pain behind my eyes just won’t go away.
