|A little about me:||I am 48 years old and have had Trigeminal Autonomic Cephalgia headaches, specifically CPH for the past 11 years and 6 months. I also have trigeminal neuralgia and fibromyalgia. Also, something is up with my pituitary gland. My brain seems wired to keep me in agony. NO medication has worked for long, not even indomethacin.
I have had a deep brain stimulator put into my hypothalamus and it worked fabulously for over two years, but now something has gone awry so I have a lot of pain now that I am trying to get under control through pain meds. I am NOT ready to give up on the neurostimulator though! I am going to get a second opinion as soon as possible.
Other than that, I am the proud mom of a young lady that has Down Syndrome and she is an angel on earth.
I enjoy reading, writing,photography, filmmaking and am a complete computer geek! I have filmed and edited hours of interviews with headache sufferers but have had to put the project aside because of the economy and the return of the headache pain.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. ~Ambrose Redmoon
