A migraine sucks

A migraine is the guarantee that my day is ruined. It could be an awesome day, everything lining up in a perfect way. And then BLAM! All else is thwarted and all I can do is hold my head and hope it doesn’t last all day.

It seems that my body has decided to throw my hormones into crazytown as I’m getting older. Until my doctor and I reach a solution that works, I’m stuck with monthly (or more often than that lately) migraines.

Up until now, good ol’ OTC Excedrine Migraine has been my go to. But it’s time to step up the regimen. I’ve got an appointment to make with my doc and today’s migraine was an excellent reminder to get that scheduled.

In the meantime, here are the things that I do to deal with migraines aside from the Excedrine:

  1. Get extremely crabby and possibly bitch out my family members. Poor Marco gets the brunt of it.
  2. Hold on to my head as though it might detach from my body.
  3. Close my eyes into tiny slits so that I can kind of still see but most of the light is blocked.
  4. When that doesn’t work, just give up and close my eyes completely.
  5. Block out the world around me and meditate for 20 minutes.
  6. Or just take a nap.
  7. Escape in my mind to a happy place to fool myself into believing that I’m not about to die.
  8. When possible, add some other type of medicinal relief (it’s legal in CA y’all)

And when finally, it subsides enough, I’m able to deal with life again. Get some things done. Or a few things. Or maybe just one thing.

The migraine is usually still there but it’s being subdued and quiet just below the surface.

I might take another nap at this point. Or if it’s late enough, I just accept my fate and all it a day. Hopefully it will be gone by the next day.

All I know is, this shit is not acceptable and I can’t ┬álive life with migraine episodes every 3ish weeks.

I’m not alone right?
