Attack of the Killer Migraine

If it's not one thing, it's another. My natural optimism is dwindling, and quickly.

Yesterday I woke up with a HUGE fucking headache. I'm not talking the usual, "ah, damn, I need some aspirin" kind of shit, but my head felt like it was going to explode out of the left side behind my ear. IMPLODING might have been better. DARK and SILENCE were my only friends.

I thought I was stroking, and I don't mean in the GOOD way, if you're a guy.


I called my boss to tell her I was gonna lie down and try to make it in by lunchtime.

FIVE hours and probably a zillion brain cells later...

I called work to tell my boss I wouldn't make it in by lunch, after all...spent FIVE MINUTES on LOUD hold waiting for her to pick up. This was around 2pm. Got nothing, so I hung up.

Receptionist calls me at home TWO HOURS LATER to say, "oh sorry, I 'totally' forgot you called earlier." Typical. I won't EVEN get into that.

Saving grace? B/F brought me Taco Bell cos' he knew I didn't have it in me to either cook or go get something myself. PLUS he knows it's comfort food for me. What a guy.

Today the pain is down to a dull roar, but I'm going in to try to attack the filing monster that's been growing the last couple of months and try to avoid going in over the weekend, even though I could use the hours so I don't eat up sick time for a stupid debilitating headache.

AND my dog shit on my carpet last night. Where do you get bait to catch a BREAK these days?

I'm borderline burnt-out right now. I feel a serious vacation coming on...

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

LOL. Sorry to be laughing at your pain but that was a funny line. Feel better K. I have no suggestions for a migraine but rest sounds good.

cork ~ thanks, I'll be here all week! LOL Headaches suck. I think I know why, tho, it's raining. Must have been the front coming in.

If Taco Bell is your comfort food you must have a stomach made from cast iron. If I eat that stuff I usually have to make sure our bathroom is stocked with at least three brand new magazines.

Do you have medication for your migraines?

A couple of my friends have migraines and their meds are the only thing that gets them through it.

Even then~they're miserable for a while.

Feel better soon. :)

I'll mix you up a couple of mojitos.

Do you know what causes your headaches? Mine are usually because of teeth-grinding and smelling perfume.

My bestest friend suffers from migrains a lot, and she's allergic to most of the meds out there today, so I have a good idea of what you're going through. Feel better soon, and lucky you for having such a thoughtful guy-friend!

It always seems like when you are at your worst...your dog feels like it has to be at it's worst too.
