A multi-day epic adventure in migraine pain!

Sunday afternoon I developed a nasty headache. I was unwilling yet to call it a migraine.

Monday morning I woke up and did not feel up to getting out of bed. I stayed home from work and spent most of the day on the couch with a pillow over my eyes. I admitted it was a migraine.

Tuesday morning I woke up and thought “I can go to work. I have lots of stuff to get done this week. I really should go to work. The headache seems under control…” By Tuesday afternoon I couldn’t think straight, was mostly incapable of coherent thought, and nearly fell over on my way out of the office (dizzy spells rock!) I took a cab home and ended up back on the couch with the eye pillow.

I phoned the Midwife on Tuesday evening and she suggested I take another day off, and take some Tylenol, and all of the other usual things that might help – massage, dark rooms, and whatever else I can think of that’s pregnancy-friendly.

It is now Wednesday. Here I am at home, still trying to get some work done (when my head clears up enough to allow it) and lying on the couch with two attentive kitties and the ever-present eye pillow.

I have actually managed to get some work done. The helpful part is not having to get up and move anywhere. Standing and walking are the most pain-inducing at the moment, since they cause bloodflow to throb through my head. So glad I didn’t go to work today.

Tomorrow, hopefully, I will feel fine. It’s been many days now; I would like to resume my regular life please.

In happier, less migrainey news, Adam felt Ultra Magnus kick me the other night. That was exciting.

    Realising that I’m about to get in the car and time is running rather short, and you are likely not still online–anything in particular the two of you like that I ought to bring up with me?

      Hehe… no, we’re good. 🙂 Going to the states in a week and a half anyhow. We’ll find what we need there.
