Sooo, last year my dad discovered that he had a benign brain tumor. He had it completely removed. After an infection and 2nd and 3rd surgery he is perfectly fine (thank you God). Now, my cousin that is my age just found out he has 2 brain tumors and isn't doing that great. I feel like I need to run to a neurologist and get an MRI pronto. Of course I have been having random pains in one part of my brain since my dad's diagnoses but have been trying to ignore it, I've got many other ailments to keep up with as well. As soon as I'm done breastfeeding I am so getting on Effexor or something (I can't take SSRI's b/c of my colitis). I told my husband about my cousin today and he is like oh great, I see where this is heading. I don't even want to hear about it he says. Easy for him to say. Thank you for letting me vent...
