Day 142 – Nope

Rough day. I haven’t had a migraine this bad in awhile. Started feeling it a little last night, but I was honestly surprised when I woke up and my head was still hurting. I tried to talk myself out of it–that once I got up and showered and got some coffee I’d be fine.

By the time I got to the office, I could hardly keep my eyes open without squinting. Had a meeting and found myself unable to complete a thought or find the right word a couple times during the conversation.

Decided to call it a day and head home.

Dizziness, light/sound sensitivity, nausea, and the kind of pain deep in my brain that just makes my skull feel like is has been stuffed full of heavy, jagged rocks.

Hoping to get some sleep and some relief and feel better tomorrow.

Day 72 – Seeing sound

Just one of those days.

My head felt a little heavier when I woke this morning, so I can’t say I didn’t know it was coming. I always know. I’ve gotten used to the signals. The heaviness, the constant need to squint even in a dimly lit room. The steadily increasing pressure that moves up the back of my neck and settles into the space at the crown of my head between my brain and skull, making me feel like I’m wearing a helmet that’s a few sizes too small.

On a good day, I can take some meds, rub a little peppermint oil on my temples, turn down the lights, and keep the pain relatively manageable.

On days like today, I can’t chase it away. It settles in, making me dizzy and nauseous, and (on the really bad days) making me see halos and sound.

Tonight I’m just sitting, waiting for the meds to take the edge off so I can actually get some sleep, and hoping this damn migraine is gone in the morning.

Where There’s a Migraine…

There’s no blog. Sorry folks. Time to sleep it off (I hope).

365 Project – Day 295 – Migraine City

No blog tonight folks. I’ve been fighting a migraine most of the day and it’s kicking my butt. I’m going to go to sleep and dream about buying my dream house.
