Wow, what a month its been so far.
My dear friend Bill of Hawaii competed in a 24 hr race in Texas.
After flying from Hawaii to Los Angeles, then to Atlanta. NO IDEA why that stupid airline flies 4 states past Texas to send him back west again, Dumb. Then poor Bill is stranded in the airport for over 30 hrs grounded due to poor weather conditions. No hotel, no shower, no bed....just a floor.
Bill arrives at midnight with only a couple hours sleep, starts a 24 hr race at 7 pm. WOW. Just WOW,
I have no words. A 60 something-year-old retired Marine Veteran. Semper Fi!
Not to mention his bike was LOST, airline left it back in Atlanta...
What a fricken hero and unsung hero. At the 200 Mile mark, he developed saddle sores yet continued to plug away another 76 miles....So next time your complaining you had a long day....think about what Bill just did for cluster headache awareness. Bill you are an incredible human being and the world is a better place because of you. Congratulations and I will make sure awareness is done !!!
This week I had a MRI again. Not a pleasant experience for a guy who is semi closter phobic with PTSD. Luckily I was sedated pretty good but made the mistake of opening my eyes while inside the machine and realizing how confined I was. If it wasn't for the medication I would have squeezed the ball and had stopped the test. It took everything in me to finish it. I was petrified in having it done because of the neurostimulator I have in my brain but apparently thy checked and I was told it was safe. You are reading this so, I am alive and made it.
I wait a week or two for the results. I must be the only person who hopes they find something wrong with me. I have been having head and neck pain from mid neck to top of back of head for 1 year now almost. 11.5 months to be exact. 24/7 dull boring pain in my head. Non stop no remission. Feels like someone is pushing my head down as I try to lift up but painful. If that makes any sense. There is ZERO correlation to clusters, migraines or tensions.
Neurologist tried lido cane shots twice. No help. She suggested Botox but its $1000. So we see. I am more interested in seeing a review of the MRI to determine next course of action.
I do have faith in our health care. Its not perfect but its the people that make it work, I have and remain ti ave hope they find out what is wrong with me and help fix me.
This week I was also on TV again, ROGERS TV did an interview of me at my car clubs tree fort.

Also this week, my wife and I both celebrated our birthday! Mine is the 4/5th (long story) and here is the 12th, We usually celebrate together. Sadly the night we went out to celebrate my head as usual got it bad. And evening ended quickly and abruptly. I feel incredibly horrible as its not my wife's fault I am in pain so much. I know she understands. But I cant help but feel lousy.
I am a lucky man. I love my wife more than anything.
Pain Free Wishes to all of you.
