Migraine and Memory


I have got a migraine. I have had it since yesterday morning when I awoke. I didn't want to have it so I told no one. I carried on with my day as if I didn't have it, thinking all day... if I have this bad boy still tomorrow, I will stay in bed and call in sick.

I woke up at 5 a.m. with a start - remembering an e-mail I sent out last week. "The meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday March 2." And I got all insistent that people be there or send a representative because it is so important that we get this done and it was so difficult to schedule. Well, hell's bells, why didn't I write this in my daytimer? Thank God that by some weird twist of memory I did remember it - out of a dead sleep - this morning. I will go to work because I have to facilitate this meeting. I may very well leave after it is over and come home and go to bed. When you get insistent like that with the chief of psychiatry, the director of psychology, the director of nursing, and director of social work I think you better show up and I will.

My heart is just a little bit broken about this headache. A little over a month ago I noticed that I got a migraine every time I ate the tiniest little morsel of chocolate, so I stopped eating chocolate and hadn't suffered a migraine since. Until yesterday. Sans chocolate. I even stopped taking the medication I was taking to prevent them. I guess I will get back on that today. I hate taking medications!

Sorry to be so boring. I just don't have a thing to say today.

Migraines are fickle. A friend of mine has kept a log for years, and still cannot find a pattern.

I haven't had a migraine in years. I am grateful for that. I gave up coffee and eat little to no chocolate. Recently I have given up meat again.

I hope you're well(er) and the meeting worked out. If not, I hope you're in bed soon.

Blessings and aloha...

I feel your pain. I too suffer from migrains. Woke up Sunday with one, tried putting off meds until 8:00 at night when I was sure my head was going to explode. Hope you are able to rest and feel some relief soon.

It has been quite awhile since you've had a migraine darlin', I vote get back on the medicine. Go to the meeting without combing your hair and without makeup...tell them let's hurry through this because I don't feel good. Maybe you'll scare them into a quick meeting.
Huggin' ya from here sweet pickle head.
