A Chronic Pressure Headache May be More than a Migraine (Diagnosis, Part 2)

Diagnosis for Pressure Headache

In Part 1, we ended with a list of symptoms, mainly surrounding a chronic pressure headache. This lead me to getting in contact with a chiropractor in NY, Dr. Rosa, who performs MRI-guided Atlas Orthogonal adjustments and had helped create a form of trauma imaging, that shows the flow of CSF. I spent a few months getting new MRIs (2018) locally, and sent them to New York, while going back and forth on the phone with their office, trying to get all the information I needed in planning the trip. This all occurred over the holidays of 2018-2019, but I […]

If you’re a Highly Sensitive Person, finding a job that’s a good fit for you can be a little daunting. We are sensitive to many things in our environment, so how […]

Chronic Head Pressure Might be More than a Migraine Headache (Symptoms, Part 1)

Head pressure headaches masquerading as migraines.

That’s what I repeatedly heard over many years. It’s a tension headache. It’s a migraine. Your migraine has just changed over time. And, it did, eventually, into chronic and intense head pressure with a headache “overlay”, if you will. As I look back, it’s difficult not be infuriated. My headaches started in 2011, after I moved across the country for my husband’s job. I would get sore and tender around the neck and shoulder area, and the pain would move up the back of my head and cause painful headaches. It would last for a few days, then I would […]

How it Really Feels to be an Introvert in Captivity During Covid19

Introvert Covid19

Ever since this whole covid19 pandemic started, little jokes about the introvert knowing how to manage in a time of isolation have gone around the internet, repeatedly. I guess, to some extent, it’s true. Introverts do know how to be alone, but this lockdown is much more extreme than what’s considered normal, even for introverts. Being an introvert during covid19 like we are, I find myself suffering from cabin fever, which is kind of a new concept for me. I actually miss running errands. I feel my motivation for writing waning, and my ideas are few and far between. I […]

Not-so-obvious Jobs for INFJs

Jobs for INFJs

You’re probably already aware of some of the common jobs for INFJs that are recommended around the internet: Counselor, health care workers, artist, writer, librarian, etc, but let’s get a bit more specific, shall we?

One INFJ may be a bit more outgoing than another, or you may be one who is deeply entrenched in perfectionism and organization, where as another INFJ may just like a little less clutter. You have to know what your strengths and weaknesses are before you start looking for a job. And, this will differ slightly […]

Somatic Water Therapy

I have both physical and emotional health issues. Some have been with me for years and others happened after an accident and personal loss in the same week in 2018. A little background Almost two years ago, I slipped and fell in a hotel lobby, on tile floor, and fell to the right, crushing my right elbow, requiring a radial head replacement surgery. I had never had major surgery, and was scared, but even worse, two days before the surgery, I lost my grandmother. It felt like my world was falling apart as I went into surgery, and I was […]

True Mattress Review: Trials and Triumphs

mattress review: natural, organic, and Beautyrest black

There’s nothing worse than shopping for a new mattress. I could have really used a good mattress review, or several, when we went shopping for our last mattress, since there’s not much to rely on except your own research and the seller’s take.
