Something's gotta give

I think I am at a crossroads. I have gotten to the point where I have cut out pretty much everything that bothers my head that I can cut out. (I still have to drive and go to work, after all.) And, for the most part, I'm okay.

But I'm not fully recovered. I still have at least one or two days a week where my head actually hurts and there is maybe only one day a week where I can't feel discomfort in that area even if it's not a full-blown headache.

I thought that if I waited until I didn't get a headache for a week that I could start working out again without getting them. But that hasn't happened. I'm not getting worse but I'm not getting better either. Plus I still get headaches whenever I do something out of the ordinary -- rush around all day running errands, do something stressful (taxes!), or go to a party.

On top of that I am grumpy all the time.

I am seriously thinking that this may be my new normal. And, if it is, why not train?

The reason not to train is to avoid giving myself chronic headaches. But what if I already have them? Then I might as well be happy in between headaches is my thinking.

I guess I need to make an appointment to see my PCP. I just don't want to because I know what she's going to say: I just have to be patient.

I am and have been many things. But patient is not one of them!

Meet Grumpy, Bashful, Happy and Doc

We used to have this joke at our house that we were the four dwarves. Mr. Mac was Grumpy, Mini-Mac was Bashful, MacBoy was Happy and I was Doc.

Lately though, MacBoy hasn't been Happy, Mini-Mac is turning into Teenage-Attitude Dwarf (who they don't show in the movie because he's such a colossal pain in the behind) and I've been fighting Mr. Mac for the title of Grumpy.

I'm not sure why, so I guess I'll blame my head. Or maybe the lack of exercising that it causes. Or maybe it's something completely unrelated.

All I know is if I have to deal with one more snafu or listen to one more moron, I will jump up and down screaming until I split in two like Rumplestiltskin. I swear!
