migraine rebound

Wednesday migraine! Wha-bam!

It was a weird one. I waffled between taking an Imitrex and just toughing it out. A wave of mildly-Excedrin-masked pain came over me, so I took the Imitrex and went to bed. On Thursday morning I could tell the headache was still lurking there in the background, waiting to pounce (guess the Imitrex didn't kill it). I avoided dark chocolate, caffeine, artifical sweeteners, and (sadly) a drink at the bar during a friend's celebratory party. I'm feeling a bit better today, but it needs to just GO AWAY. Seriously. What headache needs to linger for days on end??

The celebratory party was for a friend who finally graduated with her doctorate degree. She will be moving on to do her post-doc in Manhattan. I will miss her. She is the only friend I have who is not gung-ho about getting married and having kids.

I joined another group on and am planning to go to my first meetup next week. It's a dinner, and SO is coming with me. I hope it's fun. I tend to be shy in social settings, but I need to branch out and make new friends.

SO and I signed up for the next round of pottery-making. Yes - I lured him into it!

Long weekend, yippee!! The Christmas tree will come down tomorrow. Otherwise, not a thing on my schedule. Nice. I need some down time.

    Those blasted headaches plague me I understand your pain...and that lingering background thing all too well.

    I hope you feel better and are able to enjoy the long weekend!!

    I hate the lingering headaches. Having that constant, chronic pain is so draining, emotionally, for me. I hope it leaves for good soon!

    I don't get migraines but i get stomach aches like that which linger for a day or even more.

    Enjoy your long weekend.

    #$%^&*()_ migraines! I can remember sitting in the nurse's office at school in fourth grade, blind with those awful zigzags and thinking I was dying. I still get the aura, but no advantage of old age. (There are a few but not many so I appreciate every one),
