Welcome to my crazy

People get headaches.

Shocker, I know. This is certainly not a newly touted medical discovery. This ground breaking information is not soon to be published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It is not even as timely as a cure for polio.

People get headaches. JUST headaches.

It's okay.

It does not necessarily mean anything other than their head, well, aches. No bigger evil lurking in the wings, no monsters under the bed ready to leap out at you, no boogie men.

Nope, people really do just get headaches.

But, I gotta tell you, when Mandy gets out of her bed tonight and comes out of her room to tell me that, "Every time I lay down my head hurts" it is a one way ticket on the express train to Crazyville for me.

The most likely scenario is that she has a headache. Plain and simple. Just a headache.

It could be allergies.

It could be a cold.

It could be that she listens to Laurie Berkner and Carrie Underwood at full volume.

It could be....lots of things.

It's probably nothing.

But, does it invite all those nasty thoughts to, please, break down the bolted door and bully their way into my the very front of my head?

Um, yea, it does.

My daughter has a headache.

And that? Is the stuff my nightmares are made of.

Love to all~

THIS? yeah, got to be Excedrin Headache #1 -- praying it's just an Underwood (volume)#10 for Mandy.
Prayers for a good week

It's always the short straw that throws us off the deep end. <3

Quell the nasties and feed them no more. I know, easier said than done. Just because I give advice doesn't mean it works for me. Hoping that it is a full on false alarm.

Please keep us up to date. And tell Mandy that people from far and wide are thinking of her.

Hang in there....
