Almost 8 weeks...

I haven't blogged in forever (okay, almost a month but it seems like forever!). Tonight was the coolest experience yet! It's after 4 AM and I drank heavily tonight. Not only am I not sleepy, but I don't have a headache. It's AMAZING!!! Seriously, I know it seems shallow, and I do realize that I'm still a tad tipsy at the moment, but it's the coolest thing ever!!! I have never drank so much and felt so great. I don't plan to make this a habit, but just knowing that I can is absolutely AMAZING!!!

My hair is growing back at record speed and it occurred to me today that I could just get extensions in my boy hair and save myself the trouble of dealing with the super short hair. I might even left Jason do it...frightening I know.

I am 100% normal and I feel so much better than I can ever remember feeling. It's funny that 4 weeks ago I thought I was 100% and I realize now that I maybe felt as good then as I did before surgery. Now I feel WAY better than that and it is truly unbelievable. I really cannot wait to get cleared by Dr. Oro a week from Monday and be able to do anything I want. It's crazy! I never thought I'd be able to do half of the stuff I can do now, and I'm still restricted.

I started decorating for Christmas today and it wasn't until my mom asked me how I was feeling that I even remembered that there was a time when I would have been in excruciating pain doing even the simplest things.

I'm going to bed now since it's 4:30 AM, I might sleep til noon, but I'm enjoying every minute of my life now!!!

I am super happy for you! Sounds like you will be finding more and more joy in your life and PAIN FREE! Your story is encouraging to me as now I have my surgery date ~ Feb 1st for tethered cord and March 7th for decompression. You give me hope that having the surgery will make me feel human again. Hugs to you ~ Lace

Lace, I think you said it best - I feel human again...although again isn't quite right. I just feel human - and it's an absolutely wonderful feeling!

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.
