The soreness from the shots has faded away, and the monstrous headache it triggered seems to be dying down.
I wouldn’t say I’m quite back to my pre-botox pain level, but I’m getting there.
The toughest part of this treatment is it’s inability to meet the expectations of those around me. I am well aware that it will be weeks before I know if there is any change, and maybe longer before I know if the treatment will help enough. I’ve been dealing with this headache long enough to know there is no quick cure.
My friends on the other hand, seem to long even more than me for that magical pill that will end the headache. Who am I to argue against their reasoning?
I long to be able to tell everyone that I am well,
To join in with the jogging,
To go to a concert,
To schedule things without fear of cancelling last minute.
Today my head hurts worse. I planned lessons, ate lunch, and went back to bed. I got up in time to get ready and go to work, only to come home halfway through a 4 hour shift.
The right side of my head is sore from the shots. The left is fine.
It’s the right side that always hurts.
I’m hoping the soreness and extra pain diminishes soon. Two of my girls are gone to a friend’s house for the next two nights, so the house should be a bit quieter. My plans for tomorrow are cancelled. It will be a day for rest and recovery.
