I just need to vent a bit
But first of all: I miss being active here!
I haven't been around here as often as I could have, but while I often read your posts, I rarely find the time or motivation to reply. I feel bad about that...
Today, I had the worst migraine attack I've experienced in at least a year. I do get mild migraines or other non-migraine headache attacks about once to thrice a month, but today definitely takes home the award for worst moments in 2013 so far.
It started around noon when I had a mild headache and tension in my neck. I didn't think much of it, the weather had changed and I'm a oh-so-sensitive little thing when it comes to weather changes. Also, it's the first day of work after one week holidays.
It simmered at a low, tolerable level until about fifteen minutes before my shift ended. Then, it quickly became VERY intolerable, so I took a paracetamol 500 pill (it usually does the job for me)
The way home was pure torture, I was so sure I'd go and throw up in the bus, but I somehow managed my way home... somehow. I was sweating heavily, even though it was cold and snowing, but when I got home, I was WET.
All the time, I was feeling like throwing up
Usually, arriving at home, dressing in something comfy, listening to some quiet tv (not necessarily watching, of course) helps lessen an attack as well,
today, it did sh*t for me.
So, I just curled up in bed, pulled the covers all the way over my head, built a little hole to breathe through (hot/warm air makes it worse) and tried not to throw up.
Then, two hours and two pills after the attack started to get horrible, it finally lessened enough so I could finally get up and indulge in gluttony
During or after a migraine attack I often go on an eating frenzy. Especially cookies, fatty things, sweets 90% of the time. Sometimes I crave things like cheeseburgers or other savory things.
Ironically, things that SHOULD probably make me even more sick, settle my stomach during migraines and make me feel better in general
Now, 4 and a half hours later, I feel well enough to write and look at a screen.. but I'll go to bed and sleep it off soon.
just needed to get that out of my system, even if it was probably random...
I might be a little off, still XD
