    When you wake up with a head-splitting migraine and no amount of excedrin seems to help and yet you still have to maintain appointments you made with other individuals because you hate backing out on things you agreed to do.

    unicorns hate migraines.

    They're the worst thing!

    I remember as a kid seeing my father sit with a bandana wrapped around his head, tied at the side with a spoon through the knot. He'd use the spoon as a lever to turn it and tighten the bandana around his head for more looked scary to a kid but growing up and having tried it...there's some temporary magic in it but not like the way a nap cures a migraine.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    So, I found out on Friday that a friend of mine from high school committed suicide. He had been having issues with addiction for awhile. He was a brilliant, passionate, and strong willed person. He had a rare sense of integrity and usually stood up for the underdog regardless of his feelings toward them. He could get an entire bus of people laughing and turn bad situations into exciting adventures. He was an intelligent and talented artist with his whole life ahead of him. I can't think of a single person who won't miss Todd. My sister, Dad, and brother are all recovering addicts and unicorns addiction, man.

    If there's anyone else struggling with it:

    -You matter.
    -Of course you're loved, you moron. Lol (You're loved. You will absolutely be missed, probably even by people like your mailman.)
    -You are not the summation of your mistakes. You DO have the potential to beat this. You are NOT a hopeless cause. If your friends disagree, get new friends.
    -You'll make more mistakes and that's okay. Forgive yourself when you mess up because you've committed to becoming healthier. The opinion of everyone else doesn't decide your worth. It's a path. Make the decision everyday to walk it.
    -You're loved.
    -You matter.
    -You're loved.

    I really hate how unproductive I can be sometimes with my condition. The days when its not bothering me too much stand in stark contrast to those where it is. I wish I could get fixed, but that ain't going to happen.

    I just heard back about my cervical MRI today. I have 3 disc bulges, two herniated discs that caused effacement of my spinal cord. Apparently it’s irreversible and I’m not really sure of the consequences yet. I’m angry for a lot of reasons. 

    -I’m angry that someone can do this much damage to another person and then wash their hands of the consequences. 

    -I’m angry that I was left on the road like a person without worth. 

    -I’m angry that now my body is altered because of his moronic choices.

    -I’m angry at the pain this has caused my family. I’m angry that someone else’s choices led to a 3 way call during the first 48 when I was a bleed risk. I was planning a funeral at 29 and seeing how hurt my family was. I’m angry his choices almost decided my future, or lack thereof. 

    -I’m angry my team of medical professionals are inept and I have to make it my full time job to stand over them, ensuring I get the help I need. 

    I have a lot of feels lol.
