I wish I had something nice to report. Sorry to put a downer in this beautiful thread. i was in bed all weekend as my pain is too horrific to do anything, i have to keep my head in ice. I did manage to go outside sat. night and put my annual flowers in my garden but I was in so much pain that i didn't enjoy doing, i cried and just hurried up so i could go back to bed.
Today is another day and we'll see what it brings. but the headache remains. I find it tough to do anything.
Please pray for me.

Feb to end of April 2010:3 cycles of IV Ketamine infusion via a PICC line and pump at home, this was to start resetting the receptors.
