Pain and peacocks


This is not good.

The pain is getting worse instead of better.

That's not supposed to happen!

My mom stayed home with me today because I had such a horrible night last night and have been in unmanageable pain.

Thankfully, my mom begged Duke into calling me in more painkillers because I'm not doing good at all and have to move to college in 5 days.



In other, lighter news, I got my head shaved to look slightly less odd. Yes, I still have some hair. :) Maybe I'll post pics in the next couple of days.

I was pretty blah about it at first, even though I knew she didn't really have many options about what to do, but now I think I kind of like it.

The funny is that when I wake up, my hair stands straight up like a peacock (or a peahen, I suppose). Sometimes it's side to side, and sometimes it's front to back in more of a faux-hawk fashion. Seriously, I was getting ready to go out for my uncle's birthday yesterday, and I spent 25 minutes trying to get my hair to lay down. The tricky thing is that I'm allergic to pretty much every hair product, and finally, Chelsea came up to me, said "here, try this," and sprayed this hypoallergenic toner on it, and it worked!

Little did I know, toner is actually for your skin. :)


Oh well. It did the job and it didn't hurt me. That's all I cared about.


  1. Sorry to hear about your pain, but lets look at the bright side later on in your post. I am so happy to hear that Chelsea did something so abosolutely sisterly. I take it things are going better in that department.

  2. Post pics and get some good pain pills! Praying for you!

  3. Praying that you get some pain meds and that you can get the pain under control!!! :)
