It’s been a while…

Have you ever felt like you are just waiting? Like waiting in line for a ride but when you turn the corner there’s another whole warehouse of lines to wait in?

I have been feeling that way since the second week of October. I started getting migraine headaches that was later coupled with an ear infection. The ear infection got better but my head kept pounding. I went back to the doctor. I got new medicine. I got worse. I went back to the doctor. I got new medicine. I got a little better. I took a turn for the worse. I got busy with comedy. I went back to the doctor. I got new meds. I got another doctor. I got better. I have tests coming up.

I don’t know.

And here I am, still waiting in line. On a new medicine to cope with a migraine/tension headache. I feel better and am able to go to work and live my life with a much smaller headache but it still sucks as much as Domino’s wings.

I hate being an ailment queen but I am being a 100% candid because I don’t feel like myself and I feel like people can tell. I feel like I have wing sauce all over my face and no one will tell me. The major identifier that I am not myself is I haven’t wanted any wings.

The worst thing has happened to me. I have only eaten chicken wings once in two months. I, generally, crave wings all the time. Lately, meh. Brain, seriously, can we talk?

Hey Brain, I get it. I know you’re hurting right now but I don’t know why. I didn’t hit you or make you watch Westworld. So what gives?

Hey Annie, yeah. I’m just super over this whole hot wings and comedy thing you’re doing.

You understand that those two things make me incredibly happy right?

Yeah, I know. We all know. I’m just in a bad mood okay? If you keep asking me questions, I’m just going to go to my room! GAHH!

I’m trying to find the positives in prolonged pain. It’s challenging but I am thankful. I am grateful that through Obamacare I was able to get affordable healthcare so I can see doctors, I am thankful for awesome bosses who are incredibly understanding, I’m thankful for B and him being there for me when I need it most.

And I am thankful for wings.I’m thankful that wings will always be around and that I can write silly stuff about them and how yummy they are.
