I found an article that made me take a step back. It was oddly comforting. I am throwing this out there for anyone curious or has need of more info on Chiari Malformation. Cant tell you how good it felt to read something that sounded like pages out of my own life.
I’m not able to do the decompression surgery at this point… as they think it wont help my headaches at all, but after a long week of constant migraines, it was a very good thing to feel part of the “club” instead of an oddity.
If more “famous” people were challenged by Chiari’s it wouldn’t be something unheard of by everyone. But that’s true of so many conditions. You only learn about them when someone you know, love, or you yourself has been affected by.
Anyway… here it is… just click the link and be taken to it. Good read. Highly recommend it.
And just to say it again… thank you to all who have been so helpful, comforting, and supportive in this last year, and in the years long before diagnosis.
