I was “suffering” from some really nasty headaches. Debilitating ones. My doc. said he just had to have a look inside. A CT Scan was ordered. Through that they ruled out certain possible causes to my relief. But a strange thing happened. The technicians did an oops with the scan. They went too low. So they got from my gut to my head. Low and behold they saw tumors. Accidentally we got it so early that it did not progress and they could tell by my spine that the headaches were caused by a pull from muscles in the mid back. The technical concepts are interesting but boring.
So I was most assuredly blessed to have the headaches. I was blessed by a mistake.
