My sleep pattern is still off which means I am a little "off" too! 
(Ask my family and they would say that I am a little "off" whether I sleep or not.)

Yesterday, I just started crying and it felt really nice. That may sound strange but I am a very emotional kind of person and I cry a lot. Always have. And sometimes, when I go to long without a good cry it catches up with me. 

When I haven't had a good cry in awhile, the tears are usually triggered by the tiniest little thing -as was the case yesterday- and then a tidal wave comes. I felt better after it was over so that was a good.

All the dots on my iPod calender are making me look like I am cool, again! Except this month's dots are not for television shows but lots of doctor's appointments and birthdays.
It is a busy month. (According to my iPod.)

I do have an important appointment on Tuesday. I go every 4 to 5 months and I have an occipital nerve block done to help my migraines. It sounds much more intrusive than it really is. Basically, the doctor injects a mixture of steroids and lidocaine into each side of the base of my head. It literally takes 60 seconds.
I have a terrible time recovering from these blocks but they are worth it in the end because they help my migraine pain so very much! I am not sure what really happens but my Dysautonomia just doesn't like the blocks. I don't mind having a few tough days for fewer migraines. I consider it a fair trade.

Anyway, I probably won't be blogging this week but I plan on being back and in full force next week for sure.

Oh my goodness I had quite a FEW good cries this weekend. It is good to let it all out once in a while!

Prayers for your appointment!

Oh my, I totally understand about needing a good cry. I'm pretty sure every female understands!
Hope the nerve block helps a lot, and isn't so rough on you this time!
