Today is the first day since the lumbar puncture aka “spinal tap” procedure that I’ve felt relatively normal. Not completely normal, but relatively. I’ve been pretty much on my back for the last 5 days. I’ve developed an entirely new scale of what a headache is to me. The ONLY thing that would relieve the excruciating pain was lying flat…and fortunately it worked. So that’s where I’ve been for the last 5 days…in my bed, on my back. I think I’m on the road to feeling normal again.
