I have a serious headache. I’ve had it all day. It’s one of those if I could slice off about 1/3 of my head, I would. One of those ones I woke up with (as often occurs), but “It’s only a dull pain, so I’m sure once I have some coffee it’ll bail” type of headaches. Only it didn’t. I took a nap with it; I’ve played with the kid with it, ran to Kohl’s with it (almost forgot to use my Kohl’s Cash! I always let that crap expire, ugh), made dinner with it and helped the no-eating monster see that chicken, broccoli and potatoes are not his archenemies.
It was in that single minute, sitting at the dining room table after we’re all stuffed and the kid has been freed from his cage (highchair), that my head hurts that much worse and I’m subconsciously rubbing my head in various spots and purposefully pulling my hair. Okay, I partially only realize this because my husband is watching me and says, “Itchy?” Me- “Wha? Oh, no, it hurts. Still.” I finally cave and take something.
I’ve never been officially diagnosed with migraines because I haven’t had an MRI or stuck with one general physician long enough to have an in-depth discussion about this. Because I’m stubborn. And it goes in spurts. And I try my darnedest to ignore pain. It did get bad enough at one point that I started documenting when they happened, maybe for sake of discussion with doc and trying to pinpoint a “trigger”? But did I use that info? No. Cause they stopped happening nearly so much. But now and then… they kill me. To the point I want to take my contacts out, close my eyes, and cover my head with a dark blanket because it just can’t get dark and quiet enough.
