life... or something like it

Here's an update on what's going on in my life. Things are not going well. On February 27, I fell on the ice while shovelling my driveway. At that point, I bruised my tailbone. I did see a chiropracter at that time, but he was hesitant to do some of the work because of the swelling. I have been having migraines since then. I think in part due to the pressure changes in the weather, in part due to my back, and in part stress. I have been seeing a doctor about my migraines. With the meds I'm on, I'm not allowed to take anything else for 6-8 hours after I take a dosage. These meds take away the migraine, but not the headaches which stem from a different source than the migraines do. So when I take the meds, I can't take anything to control the headaches or the back pain.
Yesterday (Saturday) I started getting a numbing sensation in my right foot. At first I just thought it was the way I had slept or the way I was sitting. This sensation has persisted and I will be going to the Wellness Centre in Niagara Falls today. They have several different things going on there including Chiropractor and Acupressure/puncture. I'm hoping it's just a pinched nerve that they'll be able to fix, but we'll see.
Anyhow, I just wanted to let y'all know what's going on.
