Grumpy with a side of cereal at 2:14am

Barometric pressure headaches have returned…..It’s been a while since I’ve gone on an angry rant about my shunt and chronic pain. This week just about everyday, I’ve had continuous pain from the shunt valve, chiari malformation, distal catheter in my stomach, eye pain and scalp sensitivity near my shunt.  I feel some of this discomfort is from elevated csf pressure in my forehead. Perhaps my shunt is over working again. The good news is, I know it’s not obstructed. At least I don’t hear the device making noises anymore…

Yesterday, I chose to watch Netflix. I figured maybe watching this for a few hours will take my attention away from my pain issues.

I couldn’t focus on drawing, games or reading yesterday because of pain issues.

I was up this morning around 2am for super early breakfast and hoping eating would make the pain less.

This didn’t work very well. I went back to sleep after eating only to wake up again later in the morning with the same issues from the last few days.

The crazy temperature changes and super moon earlier this week haven’t been helping….

I saw a little bit of the super moon on Tuesday evening while on my way to a support group meeting. I didn’t know it was a super moon until I saw the news report later that evening. When I saw the rather large yellow moon around 5:45pm and thought it was really cool, not knowing it was a super moon. I have my calendar marked for the next one.
