The picture is from my run on Saturday. Right before I got the migraine.
I went to the doc yesterday and we reviewed my medical record. The last time I was treated for a migraine was in 1999. Well, I didn't realize that. I thought there was nothing that would help my migraines because there wasn't in 1999. I failed to realize that 9 years is a long time in medical science. Yesterday I was prescribed a medication (a vasoconstrictor) that you put on your tongue, it dissolves, and so does your migraine. After 5 days of misery, I was rid of the pain in about 20 minutes. Thank you Maxalt. And then I got a little bit mad about the $30. copay and the $30. prescription. But that's life, isn't it? Thank God I am rid of that headache and I have a little container in my purse with an emergency dosage of this drug. So, the days of my 3, 4, and 5 day migraines should be history.
It's snowing and raining this morning. The drive to church at 4:45 a.m. was beautiful. My church was beautiful in the rain/snow mix. It was beautiful to sit for an hour in perfect silence, and pray. I lit a candle for my daughter and prayed.
I am still feeling a bit fragile as a result of the headache. I am going to go back to bed now for an hour, and then I will go to work. I am so grateful to be able to do these things.
