I was born with hydrocephalus, had a shunt put in shortly after I was born, and experienced seizures till I was ten. I have been what doctors call high functioning my whole life. Shunt was completely replaced in 1999, and then moved to the opposite side of my head in 2009. I have averaged about 4-6 headaches a week. Which again is why I am so familiar with them. I of course, want to be pain free and functioning completely independent from anyone. I have been trying to attain that for a long time now. Especially since my parents are very close to retirement.

@bmilbrath I totally agree, anger and guilt often comes with my pain. I, like you, have a wonderful relationship with God. Without that, I would have lost my mind with all the pain, and shame that comes with it. I am so pleased we met, it is wonderful to share with someone my feelings. Thanks and if you support me and I you we can message each other privately if need be. I am all about the support, it helps me feel less alone. Hugs!

@Marie5309 I sometimes wonder how anyone can get through life on this Earth without a relationship with God. Without Him, I shouldn't be here.

@bmilbrath I agree, I can not imagine. I live by his Saving Grace.
