Monday night I was awoken by an intense stabbing pain in my head, well more through my left temple and through my left eye. It was quite intense but I refrained telling Mr FD for awhile because Mr FD’s usual response to any medical emergency that I suffer is to start mentally refiguring the family budget minus my income. I have never ascertained if he then adds in the insurance money, but in evey marriage there must be a little mystery.
So, starting from the point of physically having one eye, naturally I was a wee bit concerned. So off to the doctor who was very kind and gave me the exact response I required – immediate concern and action.
The pain has decreased but I am having issues focusing, and I am light sensitive. I expected to get a headache but nothing developed. We have a variety of options to choose from now!
So far I have been to the physiotherapist as the simple solution is that it is from neck muscles. My regular physio has left and so I was introduced to a new physio – He is tall dark and rather handsome. I may need intense therapy for some time… Second option is some arterial problem that “old people, much older than you” often develop. I said let’s start with the exception to the rule, so I had the blood test to rule out that enzyme issue. After that there will be scans or MRIs or pick a box for the next idea.
Today when I was at the phsyiotherapist, the waiting room was filled with women aged 60 year and over all having therapy and massages. I drove to the lab to have the blood test and the gym next door was filled with 20 something Mums working out at the gym. On the route home the tennis courts at the local tennis center were filled with 40 something women playing tennis. So that is how the other half life…
I arrived home and told Mr FD that I wanted their lives and strangely enough he didn’t start working out the family budget minus my income. I think in fact he pretended he didn’t even hear me.
