Shot in the head four times...


Actually I had four Occipital Nerve Blocks... this procedure consists of superficial injections of a local anesthetic with corticosteroids at the level of the superior nuchal line to develop a wall of anesthetic surrounding the posterior occipital artery. Occipital blocks offer immediate and sometimes long term palliative benefit to patients suffering from migraine, tension and/or cluster headaches! Blah blah blog... but, like I said, it is working! I got the injections yesterday and my migraine just washed away! Today the injection sites are sore but some Advil took care of that. I am feeling FANTABULOUS!

UPDATE: still a non-smoker, working out and eating better than ever!

Fatty fatty 2 by 4...

Now that I am a few weeks into my new life goals I thought I would throw in another one...

I am publicly vowing to lose weight and get in shape!

I thought I would share this with family and friends so there would be less chance of me giving up again!

As most of you know, I love food and relaxing! These things used to work for me… they work no longer.

At almost 5 weeks as a non-smoker and a couple of weeks going to the gym... today starts the eating Light & Right diet. (My own little diddy I've come up with.) It's pretty self explanatory.

So, with the promise of shame and embarrassment if I do not accomplish my goal... I will begin.
