Where Have I Been??


First off, I would like to apologise for my lack of (or rather non existent) posts. I said that I would be posting much more frequently and that was definitely the plan. However,  my health suddenly dropped out of the blue and I wasn't able to focus of blogging. About three and half months ago I was sitting in class when this weird headache came along. I thought it was just a normal headache so I left it and waited for it to pass, though it never did. It gradually got worse throughout the day so I took a couple of painkillers, but they didn't do anything. I couldn't sleep this headache off and it just got worse and worse. I waited a week to see if it was temporary but still to this day it never left, not even for two minutes. At the end of the week mum took me to the hospital as not only had the pain become much worse, but my vision was blurred at times, I was very dizzy and I was feeling highly nauseous. The hospital was super busy and as a quick physical examination showed nothing serious, they told me to go to my local GP who can follow it up. I got a new GP as I didn't like my other one. My new GP was great as she actually listened to me. I was prescribed some migraine tablets as well as a stronger painkiller because standard Panadol and Nurofen didn't help at all. We made another appointment for a week later to follow up. This week was awful. The stronger painkillers didn't touch it and I didn't have any response to the migraine tablets. The next week we went back and because I didn't have a response to neither the painkillers or tablets, she referred me to get a blood test and an MRI scan just to rule things out. The scan came out clean although the blood test didn't. Since then it's just been trial and error with different medication and specialists, so far I have not found anything that has worked.

The pain level varies from a dull headache to an almost unbearable pain. I've always had trouble falling asleep, though this headache has kept me from staying asleep as well. I so badly wanted to write a long and detailed blog post about this, in a way I think it would probably feel great to finally get it out in detail without shortening it down. But even just this small post has taken me over two days to get down because I have to keep taking breaks from looking at the screen, and also ever since this headache started I've just found it so much more difficult to think properly and really concentrate on what I'm doing, in particular when it comes to writing or explaining. Anyway, basically term 3 this year really took a toll on me, this headache along with the other symptoms have seriously impacted me and my daily activities especially school. There has also been a lot of other things going on which just spiralled downhill, overall term 3 was pretty hectic. I'd really like to continue blogging, though the posts will be short and pretty listed (which is my style anyway :)).

I just really needed to write this, I was hoping I would be able to get down a much more detailed post but I'm not sure exactly how interested you would be in that, I guess this was more for me in a way.

I'm always using Pinterest as it doesn't require me to sit down and write or read (it sucks I miss reading a good book) so if you'd like you can hop over and check it out :)

Anyways, I hope you guys are all enjoying your holidays so far ( those who are on holidays).

  1. That sounds so hideous Sophie and I hope you start feeling better soon! I would love a detailed post if you're up to it, because I find all of this stuff really interesting! xx I had a massive migraine yesterday and ended up having to get injections and some oxygen (I talked about it all on my blog) and feel a little bit better today but not much. Keep holding in there and I hope it clears soon! xx
