Thank you for all of the good wishes during my headache day yesterday. Unfortunately, it did end up turning into a particularly nasty migraine which had me in bed pretty much all day. I did get up for a bit before Hubby came home but then took more meds and took another nap.
The thing I hate the most about migraines is that they limit my activities so much. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to read and when I am dealing with a headache it is NOT the most appealing thing to do. I struggle with really wanting to read and knowing that it will make my head even worse!
The computer is also a thing which migraines don't "play nice" with. I want to check email and things but the monitor and the headache - not a good combo!
Pretty much the only thing I CAN do when I get a migraine is to hide under the covers and be bored. I do try to sleep- it makes the time pass more quickly and sometimes convinces my head that I am really trying to take care of it so the headache goes away. However, I usually have problems sleeping so I end up just "hanging out" wishing the headache was gone. Even listening to my iPod isn't good with a headache.
There is nothing worse than sheer boredom! Except maybe having all kinds of ideas about things to do- things you can't do with a migraine!
Voice Update: So far, so good. Skor was a bit "active" early this morning (5:00 A.M.) and I found myself with an aching back and neck. That makes me grumpy so I don't want to do my darn exercises but . . . I will TRY to be good!
