First I lost my good luck charm! I know, I know, it's crazy right? But I am bummed! Seriously, I could take losing my MacBook, but my good luck charm? NOOOOO!!!! I bought these Alex & Ani bracelets About a year ago and have worn the one with the good luck charm on it almost every day. When I need a little luck, I would rub the charm between my fingers. I know hard work and dedication are what works, but a little luck doesn't hurt right? Well the charm fell off my bracelet! Gone! I guess, on the plus side, someone walking around may come across the charm and who knows they may just need a little good luck themselves, so it will live a second life somewhere. But WAH! (Yes I am whining!) No fair! Truly bummed!
OK, so that isn't really the vent, the vent is my frustration with a headache that has decided to take residency in my head for the last month now. It seems to go away for a day here or there and then just comes right back. After 4 weeks of this I went to the doctors, who asked what is going on in my life. When I told her I work FT, started my own business which is also FT, have three kids, 2 dogs, a husband etc... She honed in on the business. "SO what do you do?" she asked. I responded "Well I do HR FT during the day, and I started my own nail polish line which pretty much takes the rest of my time." And then she hit me with the question I always get from people when they find out. "REALLY!! WOW that's so interesting!! So what makes you different from OPI?" Which I take as OPI is perfect, what the heck are you thinking? LOL. I need to fine tune an answer to this one. I love OPI, but hey, they aren't a Cult are they? LOL! ANYWAY once she heard my situation, nothing else mattered. She simply told me "Oh honey - it's stress! Nothing is going to get rid of that headache until you relax!" WHAT?!? Seriously? Ugh I know I'm stressed, but come on! I was actually OK with it. SO there is no magic to get rid of the headache, but when later that week I found out from a friend that in order to diagnose it as stress and rule everything else out, I should have gotten an MRI, my Cortisol levels checked and some blood work done. Yes stress can actually be diagnosed with tests! So as I sit here typing with another major headache that makes me want to cry, I wonder - can I have my good luck back please and should I go back for a second opinion or am I being a hypocondriac?
