I finally did it...

Tuesday, April 20, 2004
I made an appointment at the Houston Headache Clinic! The first appointment can take up to four hours so I will be taking a half day sick day for this. I have been keping a headache journal - but it only goes back a couple of weeks, since my last really bad one. Last night I had what I call my "golfball" headaches. Basically, they come on really quick and they are in the same area in my head that is about the size of a golfball. I can almost trace exactly where they hurt. These come on really quick without warning and I usually don't get sick with them. I can function, but it's limited and all I can think about is just laying my head on my pillow and turning out the lights.

I don't really know the whole process at the clinic, but I guess I'll soon be finding out. I can't believe that I have lived here over five years and have never before made an attempt to visit them. I have been to other doctors, though, which haven't really helped. Hopefully this time will be different!
