I'm {not} as tough as I think...

I'm a tough girl, sure.  We all are, right?  In our own little way...

Sometimes I'm not as tough as I think and it's about time I said that out loud.  So there... I've said it.

I woke up this morning with yet another fucking migraine.  Forgive the language but I'm so over these things!  They just piss me off.  I'm so helpless when they hit and that is not something I like to feel, obviously.  I felt it while I was laying there and my alarm was going off.  My head was sensitive.  FUCK.

I continue to get ready anyways, not knowing what stage this migraine was at... not knowing if the blindness had come and gone or if it was going to happen at all.  Not knowing if it was going to last all day or if it was almost gone already.  I call my carpool and tell them I'm driving myself this day, just to be safe.  Get in my car and drive to work, practically in tears the whole time.
Just about 3 minutes before I get to work I start to lose vision... neat.

I get into work, try (and I use that word extremely loosely) to do some things - 110% useless.  The office had been cleaned last night and the smells were making me feel like I was going to be sick.  I made about 7 trips into the bathroom at work in the hour and 40 minutes I was there... some to cry, some to try and vomit... some to just sit in the dark.

Now, here I sit, after 6pm, still with full blow migraine.  Cool, huh?

It's completely frustrating.  It's so fucking stupid.  I hate my head.  I can try to muscle through them... but who am I kidding; they have complete control over me.  I'm nothing with a migraine.  ugh.  Yet another chapter...

So... please, go ahead, insert cyber hug here.

You could be the toughest person in the world and still be taken down by a migraine. I used to get them A LOT when I was younger. They've gradually gone away for me but I will never forget the pain they caused me. I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy.

I hope you feel better soon lady. That is about the least fun thing ever.

Wow, you are strong! Honestly I wouldn't have even gone to work... but I'm a huge wimp about that kinda thing.

I'm sure you've heard this before, but maybe you should visit a doctor/specialist. Such long-lasting migraines seem to be related to other health issues.

Saying a few prayers for you!

So sorry Ang. My head has been really hurting the past few nights as well and I spent the end of my bday nursing a bad one too, woke up with it today as well. Hope it is a better weekend head-wise for the both of us!
