Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

Well, it was last Thursday morning that I awoke with a migraine topped with a cluster headache, and I am almost embarrassed to say that it still hasn't abated after what is now over a week. I've had no relief at all since then, and I must admit that I'm beside myself.

I am so behind in everything both in real life and online that it isn't even funny. It's a little overwhelming.

I did manage to fix and upgrade my son's computer against all odds. It was very challenging, given that his DVD drive doesn't work and neither did his backup program. I had to be very creative, but I did manage to do it, so I am happy that despite the fact that I'm so behind in so many things, I did accomplish something that saved a lot of money in repairs or even in having to purchase a new computer. I do know that a lot of people would have given up, so I will allow myself a little pat on the back for persevering.

My bangs are in dire need of a trim, and my roots still need that touch-up. I just may trim the bangs this evening, but the idea of breathing in hair dye fumes for any length of time is completely out of the question. It's times like this that I'm happy that my hair colour is light enough that the roots don't show from across a room.

Last Saturday, when I posted the comparison photos of my increased thickness since using coconut oil to protect my hair, I'm sure you can see that the ends are still thin. This is why I so frequently get the itch to trim to where the new thickness begins. Perhaps now some of you will understand that urge.

I will not be cutting though, as I've said before, despite the fact that sometimes the yen is overwhelming. I am getting so close to BSL and that allure is more powerful at the moment than the allure to have even thickness all the way to the tips of my hair. When goals get close, it's quite exciting!

Well, that's it for today. I haven't forgotten that I have comments to respond to, but I hope that you all can understand that it will have to wait until I'm feeling even a bit better.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all, and hugs to those who need them.


  1. Hi Franny,
    Just concentrate on feeling better, all your fans certainly understand.....

    Take care,

  2. Gee I hope you feel better soon. I can't imagine how rough it must be to have headaches like that.

  3. Oh, it must be awful for you, Franny. Hang in there, I hope it will pass soon.


  5. I am so happy you got the puter fixed. I know that is one load off of the mind. Hoping you feel better, sweetie.


I love hearing from you.
