A Pain in the Head
The first week I brushed it off to lack of sleep and the changing weather, because usually the weather really does affect me. By the end of week two, a friend of mine scolded me for not having gone to the doctor yet.
I shrugged it off, thinking it must just be something silly, but decided to ask my mom (the nurse) about it that weekend. She went up one side of me and down the other, telling me what a tool I was for not having gone to the doctor yet.
Then miraculously after that weekend, my headache was gone! For two days. Then it came back.
And it's been holing up in my brain ever since. And now my head hurts so bad that half the time I'm feeling nauseated too. Even the pills I was prescribed for my migraines when I was pregnant aren't making a difference.
So...I called my doctors (I have two, since I'm currently making the switch from one office to another), and as luck would have it, they're both on holidays till mid-November.
I could go to a walk-in clinic...which are disgusting, and dirty, and where I'll have to wait hours for a doctor to go "Hmm, I dunno. I can't find anything physically wrong with you..." or I can go to emerg, which is just ridiculous, because there are people with far worse problems than a stupid headache.
What to do? What to do?
I think I'll just hang in there for either my lesbian (and not in a sexy way) doctor to come back from holidays and feel me up so that she can check my head - she strips me naked for everything, even a sore throat, which is why I'm switching doctors - or else wait to see my new, located across the city, Spanish cowboy doctor.
Yep. But I have a feeling the cowboy will win.
