Knowing there are many people worse off than I, often helps put my pain, my journey into perspective. That said, after 10 weeks, today I am completely fed up with having a headache.  The time between pain meds relieving and fading is decidedly short and as I pace, icepack pressed to my temple, checking how much longer it is until I can pop the next pill, I am awash with frustration and fatigue.

I know things could be worse, I know it is better than it was and I know it will improve, but right now, in this moment, the persistent, gnawing pain is wearing me down.  Not brave, not calm and not graceful – it hurts.
