2 weeks

Two weeks i have been on instagram! And i am one follower away from 100 followers! Thanking you all. If you havent added me yet, lets me friends? :gingerlillytea

I have so much i want to write here this week. I want to add both birth stories here, write more about Elle's birthday (and share with you the pictures she took of her day on her new camera!!). I want to share more about myself as i find that i havent really written much about who i am.

The last two weeks have been  little scary for me. A few months ago, i started experiencing the most intense pains in my head! I suffer from migraines as it is but these are so much stronger and completely paralize me. The only way i can describe it, is labour in the head! i have these popping pains and shooting pains and throbbing contracting pains. They make me want to slam my head against a wall to relieve the pressure!
I went to the doctor to see what he suggested. He did a few neurological tests on me and felt my spine and neck and sent me off the next morning for a blood test. Now, i am NOT very good with needles as it is and for this test, i had to fast for 16 hours before hand. I was fine until the lady started taking blood, where i then proceeded to completely passout and was put on a bed. I must have been out for a while as i started having vivid dreams and a feeling like i was being sucked into a vortex in the bed. I woke to two nurses staring straight down at me, ginger biscuits in their hands at the ready!

I went back to the doctors yesterday and he is now referring me for a MRI scan. A little scary i must say. I am trying to stay positive as it could be completely nothing but i shouldnt have googled what happens during a MRI scan, as i have completely freaked myself out! As the scan is taking pictures of my brain, i could be in the tunnel for up to 90 minutes. Hmmm!

For the time being, i am on strong beta blocker tablets which seem to be making me feel so hunrgy all the time but sick all the time too. I just hope i dont need to stay on them too long.

I hope everyone is having a lovely day.
