I've been waiting for this month to get here for two very important reasons.
1: My 21st birthday is in exactly two weeks. It's kind of crazy to think about the fact that this will be the 5th birthday I'll have celebrated since starting this blog, but it is. Matt, who basically works 24/7, is actually taking time off to come down and see me and take me out, which is going to be very special. And I've already put in my request for my birthday dinner: instead of going out to a restaurant as a family like we usually do for birthdays, we're having steaks, asparagus bundles, who knows what other sides, and chocolate mousse cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory at our house. It'll be like 1/3 of the price and it's some of my favorite foods. :)
2: My appointment with the specialist at Duke's headache clinic is in 18 days. The importance of this appointment and my impatience for the day to arrive was only reinforced by the fact that I spent all day in bed today. I had to call out of work, which didn't look very good but couldn't be helped, because I couldn't even open my eyes. I'm more than ready for another chance to get some answers.
On to tomorrow. I'm going to work no matter what shape my head is in. I don't have a choice. Though I'm praying it'll be at least back to manageably bad by the time I wake up.
