Migraines are the worst

Migraines are the worst

Head. No likey. Please relief.

Pain started this morning waking up. By 6PM, it was straight impossible to open my eyes. Stuffed as full of meds as humanly possible, went down for the count until 11PM. Woke up, showered. Re-dosed what I could. Couldn’t sleep; could hear my heartbeat in my eardrums. Grabbed ice packs and applied them until I drifted in and out of sleep. Woke up every 30 minutes or so to adjust ice packs on my head.

3:30AM, and the relief seems to finally start. Still halos and visual difficulty, but I was able to get downstairs and get some calories and caffeine in the system.

…annnnnnd I’m awake. Messaged work an hour ago and said I was struggling and might need time in the morning, but now I’m literally wide awake. I’m sure I’ll crash at some point, but when my migraines break, the come with a super-charged brain and energy for some time after.

I still have some theories about that, honestly, but nothing I can put to paper just yet. Something big will happen today. I don’t yet know what it is, but the day is young.
