I'm Sick of These Headaches, Dude.

The lab that processes my blood-work,
Gory close-up of the inside of my arteries.

Bleh. I'm eating right--(MORE spinach!) , exercising again (sorta) and I keep waking up with these god-awful headaches. My doctor took me off EVERYTHING I was taking in terms of hormones and vitamin supplements so I could have a good blood work-up next month. He told me to be prepared for some "discomfort and irritability". Awesome. I can't sleep properly because I'm so hot and cold and am generally pretty crabby.
Please. I'm begging you guys. Any suggestions for relief?
Oh, and my cholesterol is 320. Sweet! Wait...what!?

I can't believe your cholesterol is that high. I've seen how you eat and you put me to shame, healthy eating wise.
And the cheesecake pix: that was cruel!!
How much longer til your checkup?

Oh, it's that high, Jilly. Apparently it's hereditary. Cool. My blood pressure is LOW, though. My next blood draw/appt. is next month. Maybe Patrick can come with me so he can have a good laugh. He should be here then for a visit.

I'm sending good positive thoughts for your Dr. visit. My BP is also low...God knows what my cholesterol is now...since I can't eat ANYTHING. Screw the Atkins diet, bread is my only friend right now. Grrrrr!
Hope your visit with Patrick is uplifting for both of you. I can see the tears falling already.
Hugs sweetie.
