Poor pathetic me

Here I am...pathetic, isn't it? I spent THOUSANDS of hours in emergency rooms this year...something like 28 visits, two in the back of an ambulance. ( Yes, I know there are only 52 weeks in a year.)
I also spent thousands of hours in the waiting room at my clinic, all for my migraines. (28 visits in AUGUST alone.)
This is pretty much how I look. The longer I have to wait, the more hot blankets I would get.
So when I say
YIPPEE! I'm having a hole drilled in my skull, you can sorta kinda get where I am coming from.

And this is not the worst I have looked.

THAT would have been the 9 hours I spent in the ER, laying on the floor (well, not ON the floor....I would have been silly to do that. Boy-o got some hot blankets for me to lay down on and then got some to wrap around my head and to cover me up. He made me a nest under the chairs in the waiting room so I wouldn't get stepped on.)

You look like you would fit right in in Afghanistan.

WHEN is that damned appointment(s)?

I had to read your post to even SEE that was you! It must feel as if you have lived at that place recently. Never mind, that will soon be over. Imagine celebrating a whole month without being there, then 6 months, then a year. The possibilities are endless :o)

The pics at the Grand Canyon are stunning. I would love to be there one day. Is it very close to you?
