It really is back this time

Felt a bit better towards the end of yesterday and this morning I woke up and within an hour or so I was able to confirm that my brain is most definitely functioning, the pain is tolerable. I actually feel like I'm on planet Earth for the first time in about ten days.

I'm writing and it's going well, but since I've been such a miserable sod (and I have been very miserable) I thought I ought to share the great news. I really am over the moon to be able to have clear thoughts again. I can cope with anything if I can just think clearly.

Strangely enough, the only thing that has coincided with this rather dramatic improvement in cognitive function is that I forgot to take my Ibuprofen with tea last night. I know it's called "Brufen Retard" but I thought that was to do with the sustained release nature of the tablets. And I thought they made me brighter, by reducing the swelling in my brain... There may be nothing in this at all of course. I wish I wasn't compelled to analyse why things get better or worse.

LMAO Goldfish,

Just laughed out loud in the literal sense when I read about your ibuprofen ;) Lucky me, I am allergic to it, so haven't had to endure that one!

Glad you are 'back' Long may it last

Thanks Kerry,

I really thought Ibuprofen was supposed to be totally groovy, but the changes after forgetting my dose are profound. It is such a maze trying to sort out pain-relief when you are dazed and confused most of the time anyway. The TENS machine is great though - I recommend this to everybody with pain. It has certainly reduced the volume of pills I might have had to take without it.

Hi Goldfish,

I have a TENS but to be honest it serves as a distraction at times, but does nothing really to ease or reduce the pain :(

I hope Star wars went well. I love the idea of the pasties as Leia's hair..lol..We have a mate who looks JUST like a Klingon from Star Trek, He could do with a Pasty on his forehead though..he has the wild hair and everything.

hugs

Kerry
