And that's how the migraine crumbles

This last weekend was pretty good. I got to go out to lunch with my mom, while Rob and his dad watched football at our house. I always enjoy hanging out with my mom. Then Sunday I baked cookies! I haven’t made cookies in quite a while. I found a recipe that was similar to the one my mom made when I was little. Of course Rob attacked the dough (it WAS good), and ate several cookies!

This week at work we’re doing Diversity week, and each day is a different theme. Monday is 50s day, Tuesday is 60s, Wednesday is 70s, Thursday is 80s, and Friday is 90s. So Sunday night I decided to go get a plain white t-shirt for 50’s day, so I went to Wal-mart. As I was looking around….is that what I think it is???

NOOOOOOO….. Blind spots….one of my tell-tale signs that I have a migraine creeping in! So I hurried home, and called Rob on my way so that he could go get me a Pepsi (he’s so good). And I hurried home to search for one of my sample migraine pills. My Dr. gave me a few to try. All I had left was an Imitrex, which I haven’t tried yet. The pain set in after I took it, so I laid on the couch with a blanket over my head. I just have to block everything out when I start getting a migraine. The Imitrex didn’t work as well as some of the samples I’ve tried. I felt really crappy, and my head still hurt, and eventually (as usual) I threw up. Which makes the head ache even more! With all the caffeine I got in me (Rob ended up getting me a Pepsi MAX), it usually doesn’t effect me, but I had a hard time getting to sleep. The next day I still had mild blind spots (very unusual for me), but I had to go to work to start closing the payroll for the period. I left early though, because my head still hurt, and if I coughed or sneezed, I about died! Today the head is MUCH better.

Since its 60’s day, I have my hair all big.

I was dressed up yesterday for 50s but I wasn’t up for a camera flash, so I didn’t get a pic of it. I’ll try to get pictures every day to post. It’s great, there are a lot of people participating, which makes it fun. One of my favorite residents kept laughing at my hair, he said it looked pretty normal from the front, but when I turned my head, he couldn’t stop laughing. :P At least I’m entertaining SOMEONE.

I (literally) feel your pain. Roy keeps Excedrin Migrain and Diet Coke on him at all times now. Praise God for good men!

I think I was having sympathy pains for you Monday. My head just pounded from 5 o'clock on, and I had to beg people to keep the lights off and to talk softly to me :(

I am so sorry about your headaches. My head hurts just reading your description of how you feel. And how do you make your hair so big? That has always been a Utah big hair mystery for me. You look cute all decked out though. I wish your diversity week was like it is on 'The Office'. Man that show is the greatest!
