Adventures with Migraine

I browsed though my iPhoto library for one of my photos to post today, and this photo from my trip to Alaska appealed. If I were closer to sea level and had some humidity, I bet I would be feeling better... but I am not.

Do you really want to hear every detail of this bout of migraine? Probably not. Too bad.

By yesterday afternoon, the headache was gone. I got out in the beautiful day and ran 4 miles. I washed my car. I took a trip to the grocery store and bought a bunch of salad to eat. Then I came home. And started feeling ill again.

I woke up at 4 a.m. with a killer headache. I got up and took my migraine medication (not prevention but relief). I hate this stuff. But it is slightly better than killer headache. I went back to sleep for a couple of fitful, nightmare filled hours. And now I am desperately trying to wake up. I have some serious work to do today. And lots of it.

And in the midst of this yesterday morning, I got some very good news. Jump up and down good news. But this is not the day to share it.

I just gotta get dressed and out of here and function somehow today.

... closer to sea level and more humidity.
That reminds me of someplace. I can't quite put my finger on it.

Hey, you could come to SC where we are very close to sea level (and below in some areas) and seem to always have high humidity! Hope that you feel better. I am a bit under the weather today myself.

Be careful jumping up and down!

A cliffhanger! I love it.

I have migraines too. I was wincing with you.

Never had a migraine in my life. Hmm
Maybe I'm not an alcoholic?

I am hoping you are back on that good medicine as well, the one that kept them from coming.
It was probably the salad that brought it on ;)
Spill the good news sista!

I'm happy for your good news and hopeful you're past headaches for a while.

Blessings and aloha...
