I imagine this blog will turn into a massive wedding rant-fest for the next twelve months.
I’ll not apologise as I have a massive, massive problem with the commercialisation of weddings and the creepy ways American habits have snuck into the traditional “this side of the pond” wedding.
I will be sticking to my guns over very many things. First thing to go? The idea of an extended bridal party.
After the last post I was hospitalised as a result of my migraines. I had two weeks off work, and now I can’t drink tea, coffee or fizzy drinks (mainly due to artificial sugars and caffeine). I now have no dairy at all and only eat chocolate in really small amounts. AFter coming back from sick leave, I was then presented with two of the toughest months in work. Keeping other things in mind as well means I am now going grey.
I’m not the first person to ever go grey and I’m not the youngest person to go grey. It’s still strange to see it happen. I only hope that I have inherited my mother’s hair and I’ll have gorgeous silver locks by the end of the year. The issue is the bit in between, I have dark brown hair and grey sticks out. As much as I don’t want to dye my hair because I’m going grey, I need to dye my hair so it doesn’t look daft. I can work with colours that sit in the brown spectrum, maybe a lighter ash colour might work.
“I had noticed, but didn’t want to say anything.” Thanks partner of mine, lover of three years. Because that was super helpful of you.
So it looks like I have some idea about what I’m going to do about my hair for the wedding next week. Dye it.
Honest to God, bone tired. Exhausted.
I’m on something new from the Neurologist that is meant to help the chronic migraines and the constant background headache I have. Well, I don’t have the background headache, and I haven’t had a migraine for a while. But I still get a splitting pain down the right hand side of my face sporadically. This medication is in a very small dose, however it is used as an antidepressant in bigger doses. How it justifies that I don’t know as all it does is give you a dry mouth and sedate you. So is that how medicine treats depression? Sedate them all so they don’t cause a fuss? Jeez. My dose goes up 10mg tomorrow and I keep it like that for two months. Then I go back to the neurologist if it doesn’t work. If it does, well I’m on these for the rest of my life I guess. I have a haematologist appointment and an ENT one in April. We’ll see what they make of things and I also have a callback to a physiotherapist for helping my inner ear/funky brain/wonky eye issue. Which could be causing the headaches, vertigo and travel sickness.
Basically I stumble a lot, throw up and get headaches. And it’s all related to an inner ear issue that could have happened in my childhood.
I’m re-reading Raymond .E. Feist’s MAGICIAN at the moment. Loving it as always. It has been a long time since I’ve settled into a fantasy epic. I don’t get much time to read though, other than when I defiantly march to the toilets at work with the book under my arm. No one leaves you alone for five mins when you’re at your desk. Even if I have a banner up saying “I’M ON BREAK, BITCHES.”
March is busy; work and home. April is busy towards the end; wedding and friend staying over. And that’s it, for now. I need to book time off in August because I’m fucking well having my birthday off work this year. Oh and the Tullamore show is in August. OH and my parents are coming over for a week, so I guess I HAVE to book time off. Way to go selective memory.
Getting involved with a good few things this year. Let us see where 2013 takes me. Hopefully it keeps me in Ireland. At this stage I don’t think I could move anywhere else. Pretty awesome life here right now. Pretty freaking awesome.
