Bad start to my day..

Well I have not talked about my migraines in awhile because I do not want to preach to you or bore you to death. Last week was a good week but this week is so far shaping up to be a bad one this is day two for me as far as waking up with a pounding migraine goes! The picture above (looks just like me huh? ha) is a perfect depiction of how I feel and don’t even ask me where I find these things! I knew today would be bad, last night I was exhausted and fell asleep at 8 and when my alarm went off at 6:10 I snoozed for 30more minutes and prayed that when I opened my eyes again the pain would be gone. The sleeping in part also sucked because today is “hair washing day” and now I am sporting a snazzy gold headband to cover the mess underneath! ha
But really I just took my big blue pill aka Treximet to try and knock this thing down. Either way I have to work all day and I am going to try to minimize my suffering. Funny thing is I get side effects from the med such as….I will pee on the hour or maybe more all day, my nose goes numb, my eyes will dialate, my eyes will also feel like they have a fever and I will kind of be in a foggy haze…..but that is how Migraines go you always trade one evil for another!
Don’t mean to be a Debbie downer just expressing my life….but on the good note, I am meeting some friends for a quick lunch today and that will be the bright spot for my day!

    I don't know how you survive those so often. Usually, the only times I get headaches (which I hear cannot be justly compared to a migraine) are when I have too much and then too little coffee or water. I've had a strange cold this week and a headache for three days and I feel like I'm going out of my mind. Hope 2010 is better to you and your poor head!
