The Saga Continues....

My saga continues with the nose surgery and cpap machine. My nose has finally healed enough so I can try to use my cpap machine again, but now the pressure is too much and I can't get to sleep with the mask on. I went back to my sleep apnea doctor and they are going to try to adjust the pressure in my machine down to a four for the next couple of weeks until they can do another sleep study on me to see what is going on in the middle of April.

I'm trying to get my cpap machine back to the medical supply company so they can tweak it, but there was a mix up with the script, so it still hasn't been adjusted. Hopefully, I can get it done this week. Also my employer is questioning my performance at work because they've been changing the metrics of my job and my stats are not up to their expectations, so the migraine/sleep apnea thing is really impacting things right now.

I thought by now that my medical problems might be better so it's so discouraging. I don't want to look at more invasive surgeries down the road. I kept telling myself that if I got through the nose surgery and started using my cpap more, things would be better and it's not happening. What if the next couple of things don't help either???

Migraine Doodle



I've been working on my own style migraine distraction doodle, where I don't have to think much when I'm trying to draw it, so it just distracts the pain. I'm not sure what to call it. It's like a henna inspired cloud thing.

Mandala Pratice



I drew this one during a bad pain flair up while I was trying to work. I think the graph paper helps me keep things more in proportion.

Mini Migraine Mandalas



So my sinus surgery went well, but it's taking forever for my nose to heal. It's still too sore to use my cpap mask so my migraines have been acting up big time. I should have known this would happen because I had a tooth extraction last year that took months to heal. This nose thing shouldn't be a big surprise, but it's still frustrating to go through the whole surgery thing and not see any results yet. I keep telling myself to just be patient and hang in there.
