When I was 26 I woke up with a horrible headache, like fingers pressing really hard into my temples. After 3 days I went to my GP. Two weeks later he referred me to a neurologist. I was petrified. Sick to my stomach, laid in bed all day, couldn't really eat, all the while thinking the worst...brain tumor, cancer, aneurism, blood clot. It was bad.
All the tests came back negative. I got some relief that they couldn't find anything physically wrong, but the headache persisted. As time passed I experienced horrible stress, anxiety, depression, thinking I was going to have to live my life in pain.
After 6 months I started to take back some control, eating healthier, getting out of the house, taking walks, thinking positive. I kept telling myself that I would get better, that I would be pain free, and be able to do the things I love.
I kept this mindset through the holidays and new year and decided to get back into fishing in March. Being outdoors fishing became my therapy. After 13 months the headache went away.
While that year was one of the hardest of my life I am so thankful that it wasn't what I feared. I came to realize how powerful the mind is, both in creating physical pain and in it's ability to heal.
Well wishes on your tests. I hope you heal.
