Wow! She’s Alive

It’s been forever since I even realized or remembered I had a blog. It’s kind of crazy how fast this year has gone!

So, what’s been happening?

Hmm… March 10, 2022 … I had subcutaneous ulnar nerve surgery on my elbow. Today, I had another follow-up on it, after doing an FCE.

Now, I still get the headaches, but now they’re sinus and stress related, and NOT because my hair weighs too much!

And since I’ve started Paxil, I’m noticing that my actual pulling has dropped drastically, as well. My anxiety is SO much better!

Oh, and so is my ability to pay attention! ?
