Ebb and Flow

Thank goodness there is an ebb and flow to our lives. Without the bad parts, the good parts would not be as savory. As I say that, though, I'd like to try a life with just the good parts, you know, just to see...

The three-day migraine lasted four-days. And I have to say, there is no grateful like the gratefulness of pain-relief. I feel like I crawled into a cave and lost four-days of my life. I'd like them back, please! It doesn't matter. I feel better now and that's what's important.

All the posts that I meant to write have faded away and I'm kind of drawing a blank. I'm sure the words will flow back to me at some point, however, they always do.

You're Invited: Pity Party

I'm really feeling sorry for myself right now. I'm on Day Three of my migraine and I'm ready to be pain-free. When is that going to happen? It's such a shame to waste a perfectly good three-day weekend on something so debilitating. I've been trying to push through and act like nothing is wrong, but the reality is that I feel like absolute crap. I've tried to sleep through it, laze through it, and eat through it. Nothing is getting me through it quite like I'd like.

My family let me sleep in today and then went for a walk to give me the house to myself. Unfortunately, the pain is so bad that I can't even enjoy the peace and quiet. I've showered to wash away to pain, but that didn't work either. I've taken as much medicine as I have and can safely take and that's not helping either. I'm ready to start a coffee IV so that the caffeine can restrict the blood vessels in my brain and stop the pain, but I have nothing to put in my coffee and I'm barely motivated to drive to the coffee shop.

I'm going to crawl under a rock now and feel sorry for myself in private. Just do me a favor. Take a deep breath and be grateful if you feel good. It's priceless!
