Same situation one year later.

I can't believe it...I went to bed with a bad headache, woke up with the same headache...eventually made it in to work only to get worse to the point that I couldn't function. I took my migraine medicine & alternated ice & heat on my head & did everything else I do for my migraines. Finally it has eased enough that I am able to lift my head again & open my office door & start working. So...I get on the computer and check emails and go through my normal morning routine & also check my past posts. The one for last year on this day is about having a migraine at work, too. Hmmm...I wonder if they are the same every day of the year...then I could predict when I would have them!!! Nah, I don't think so...I think I just have them that often!

Actually, I really haven't had one in quite a while. I can't even remember the last bad one that I had. I have headaches often, but I can usually deal with those...a full blown migraine, though - that's a headache of a different pain! It's been a while since I've had one that put me out. This one was bad, but only really had me out for a few hours. Usually it's half a day or so. I thought I was going to have to get someone to take me home as I couldn't drive, but a little while beind closed doors with heat, ice, & my pillow and of course the good migraine meds & I think I'll be able to stick it out the rest of the day. Good thing, too b/c I have a deadline for Friday and it's my Friday off so it's bumped up to tomorrow. So I have a lot of work to do in the next two days and being out today wouldn't make that an easy deadline to meet!
