Headaches

Ever since that stupid accident back in October 2008 where the lady ran her stop sign and totaled my van, I have had migraines.  Pretty much any time I sit for an extended period of time, like at work or while traveling, I can pretty much expect to have a migraine for a day or more afterward.  We went up Canada on Saturday and took the ferry over to Victoria and I’ve had a headache since.  Is this ever going to stop?  Excedrin Migraine sometimes can’t touch it, and weekly massage therapy helps, but I am still.getting.migraines.  ARGH!  I’m hoping to start to see a chiropractor when I get on my new health insurance at work.  I just wish I could get back to “normal” as far as my back/neck are concerned.

Sorry for the boring rant, but I’m really trying to find my groove and get back into posting here again.  It’s a start…


POP Goes My Ovary!

For about a week now, I’ve been having what I know are ovulation pains.  Years of tracking my cycles have taught me that.  However, they don’t normally last so long, and they certainly don’t normally get worse with each passing day.  I decided yesterday that if the pain was not better by today, I’d go get it checked out.  Then I stood up from the dining room table and had a horrible stabbing pain in my right ovary that took my breath away and stopped me in my tracks.  I was scared to move for a few moments, as I certainly didn’t want to aggravate the lovely “knife in the ovary” thing I had going on.  It thankfully subsided, but then I was left with pretty heavy cramps and severe pain when I laughed.

I Need a Lawyer

The accident/insurance saga continues…  Today, the at-fault party’s agent from the October 22nd accident called me and left a message saying that he needed to get a recorded statement from me.  One and a half months after the fact!  What the heck is this guy doing?!  Later, I got a message from him letting me know he’d be out of the office the rest of the week.  I didn’t give him a statement and tomorrow, I plan to contact his supervisor and raise hell.  This is just ridiculous.

I called a lawyer for a consult and he talked to me, then wished me luck.  Apparently, this isn’t worth his time/energy.  I’m not sure.  Now I am feeling hesitant to call another lawyer.  It’s not like there’s big bucks to be made here, but I need help getting my money back from this stupid insurance company, and will probably need help with the subsequent accident.  What a mess.

Friday Night Fun

Tonight, after the boys went to bed, Calista, Skip and I piled into our bed with some pillows, pop and popcorn and watch Wall-E.  Calista and I had already seen it in the theatre, but Skip hadn’t seen it yet.  It is such a cute movie!  I love it.

Now Calista is in bed and we are working on cleaning the living room carpet in preparation for putting up our Christmas tree tomorrow!  I hope it doens’t rain, as I’d like to get the outside lights put up, too.

Oh, so get this…  earlier today, I had a message from the guy at the insurance company of the lady who crashed into our van.  He told me that he hadn’t yet looked at the police report, but hoped to get to it today and he would be in touch with me when he had a chance. Continue reading »
