(disclaimer: i'm not posting this for sympathy or trying to complain. this is a blog, so i am here to be honest and to journal my life. so, if you aren't looking for a little bit of a sob story - skip this and come back again soon please!)
awhile back i posted about one test in life i've been given to learn patience.
i know this, but sometimes i forget.
since eighth grade, i've been getting migraines.
the sick-to-your-stomach, turn-off-the-lights, don't-talk-to-me, sleep-'til-it's-gone migraines.
back in the day, i would get one every so often - maybe every other month.
no big deal.
yet, since this past christmas, i've been getting them at least once every week - if not two.
after much frustration and a few tears i gave in and met with a neurologist.
she was crazy.
BUT she knew her stuff.
after making me do all sorts of funny, "watch my eye, walk in a straight line, touch my finger" kind of stuff - she said it would be best to get an MRI.
(i'm thinking it's because i was so nervous throughout her silly tests that i pretty much bombed them all. whoops.)
although it scares me to death to consider the possibilities, i know this is a test.
a test on patience.
so until then, or dr. vincent decides to do more "watch the finger" tests, i'm being crafty.
oh, and reading this talk... elder uchtdorf has a way with words, don't you think?
