Note to Self...
Note to the husband, mother, and auntie: I'm sorry that I was crabby at the lake. In addition to the pain, I was extremely frustrated that I couldn't do something that only 2 years ago was something that I could do with mild discomfort. To suddenly feel hindered and helpless is something that I hope you never have to experience. I love you all for putting up with me. If nothing else, this weekend convinced me that I want to have the surgery.
This is just my story of my experience with Chiari. Until I was diagnosed, I'd never heard of it, and I just want more people to be aware of it. I'm not a doctor, so don't quote me on any of this stuff - k? If you are looking for information about Chiari Malformation, a lot of the more informative posts are the older ones.
