I'm having another migraine.
This is really starting to affect our quality of life.
The last two days (before the headache) are almost worse than the ensuing head pain (which is incredibly bad).
I just feel like complete shit, physically and emotionally.
Light headed, exhausted, irritable and depressed.
Then it magically lifts and in it's place is a searing, aching, compression in my brain.
And nearly unbearable nausea.
I actually find myself fantasizing about that scene in Grey's Anatomy when Izzy drills into a trapped guys head with a cordless drill.
And the head pain is actually better than the two days of aura.
So that's kind of saying something.
The headache will last anywhere from 24 to 72 hours.
And this has been happening to me EVERY OTHER WEEK.
Every other freaking week.
For the past 5 months.
The thing I'm thankful for?... that this shit didn't start happening until we moved from Asheville. If this had been going on down there... I'd probably have killed myself.
Or developed a really bad drinking habit.
One or the other.
