15 Months Since I Tried....

Friday, October 13, 2017

Well, hello there. Good to see you again. My name is Misha and I have been a very very bad girl.

I haven't blogged or really tracked food or exercise in 15 months. Honestly, I really haven't done much of anything. My weight has continued to climb to where I have reached a new high of 186 pounds this year. Well this month. Actually I have been maintaining the 180's for a few months. At least I know where I tend to "cap off."

I was doing so well. I got the FitStar app and was using it everyday. I was running again and was almost done with the Couch to 5k (again). I was doing okay. I wasn't really eating healthly, but I was active.

Then on May 15, I got a headache. A different headache that my normal sleep deprived migraines. I had ice pick pains and a tightness that felt like I was wearing a hat for a doll. I also had this ever present fullness.

I thought it was because my anxiety was getting worse, and I have had a couple of panic attacks. My headache was so bad, I went to the doctor. Then when that failed after a few months, I went to a neurologist.

Nothing wrong, but I still have my headache. And worse thing, is heat and exercise, even a short 1/2 mile walk will trigger it to make it worse.

And yes I still have my headache. And yes it is ruining my life. I never realized how important exercising is until it is taken away from me.

My moods are constantly shifting from panic attacks in the grocery store, to fits of rage in my hallway.

I go in for a neuro-blocker on Halloween. This is where they numb my nerves in my head with an injectable solution. Here's hoping it works, because this headache, this barely living, is not cutting it.

I am also thinking about going to a chiropractor, though more people are telling me to go to an acupuncturist instead.

I don't know. But what I do know, is I am back to my low carb and keto ways. Maybe that might help my head! Couldn't hurt.

Sorry that the blog is so weird, I'm tired and ready for a nap. I have been sleeping a lot recently. Well, hopefully I will be a good girl and talk to you soon!

    I've had good experiences with acupuncture. I had a sports injury (martial arts) that just wouldn't get better. It wasn't from any particular event, just general training.

    Three sessions later it was much better, and six sessions it was cured. That was after a few months of trying to stretch it out on my own.

    My wife had swallowing problems, and her acupuncturist didn't like the way a certain part of her back "looked". A session or two later and she noticed her swallowing was better and asked the therapist what she could do about swallowing problems, and she said to treat the part of the back she was treating.

    Also I'm a Keto guy ... can't hurt.
