Slacker should be my middle name

Hello my fellow bookworms. It has come to my attention that I need to give you all an update on my condition. I used to think that I didn't need to share this with the outside world, but I feel it necessary when I am slacking on my duties to my readers.

You may have already learned from my profile or elsewhere in this blog that I suffer from daily chronic migraines. That in itself should not necessarily keep me from being able to function, especially since I have had these headaches since November of 2006. The reason I am letting everyone in on this now is because the migraines have gotten to the worst level of pain that I have ever felt. Since the last week of February, which is only last week, I have been to Urgent Care twice, the ER twice and to see a neurologist. The pain has never been this bad and I am doing everything that I can to make the situation better. I just thought I should let you know that if you see a while between postings, it is probably because the migraines are bad and I am lying a dark room trying to survive the pain.

On that note, when I went to see the neurologist last Thursday, she asked me to check out a book from the hospital library called "Migraines for Dummies." It is actually a very informative book, but I haven't read too much of it because my migraines don't allow me to do much of anything these days. Has anyone else ever read or heard of this book and what did you think of it? Are there any other book in the "For Dummies" series that are worth reading?

Thanks for bearing with me everyone. I hope to be back to functioning soon.
