Ok... so I went to my Neurologist on the 15th. He set me up for a CT scan becase everything jsut seems to be getting worse with the headaches and pressure in the back of my head. I had a headache for 5 days straight last week and it felt like about every 15 minutes, somebody would hook an air pump up to my brain and inflate it just a littl more. Seriously felt like forcing 10 lbs. of you-know-what into a 2 lb. bag.
So he set me up for a CT scan and everything came back normal. NOW WHAT?! Neither of us have any clue as to a.) what's causing the headaches and pressure and b.) what to do now.
So this tuesday (the 26th) I have an MRI scheduled for my knee. My orthopedic dr. seems to think I have torn both of my meniscus in my left knee... well, if thats the case, I have to have surgery on THAT knee too. ( i had a full knee replacement on my Right knee when i was 13)
On a good note, Katie (my BFF lol) and I just got back from vacation in OBX. We spent about a week there @ my boss' beach house. It was FREE so of corse, just that much better. It was a great time... (I've included a pic - I'm on the Right)
Also, for all of you who knew me as "Josh's Girl" know that we broke up about a month and 1/2 ago. Well, I met a boy... smilewinkgrin He's really nice. We're not "together" or anything but we've been hanging out a lot and so far, things seem to be going good. His name is Ryan and he's an absolute doll.

Anywho, just wanted to let everyone know what's been going on with me. Hope everyone else is doing good...
