Where the raindrops as they're falling tell a story...

So Soon, Girl?

I didn't expect for her to visit me again this soon.

Yes, I'm calling my migraine a "her" because for whatever it's worth, she has the temperament and a personality of a female.

She makes her presence known by gently throbbing at my head--which of course goes unnoticed (maybe I were a man, then?). Then she'd start her tantrum, this time not so gently, covering one part of my head, and if I'm not so lucky, the back, too.

Because I still deny that it was her again, I drink coffee. Now, unlike me, she loathes coffee.

I try to justify that maybe it was because I'm hungry from drinking too much coffee. "Stupid!" I can almost hear her.

So she gives me nausea and I start to vomit. But I can't, she won't let me. No matter how hard I try, no barf comes out. "Tease!" I shout back at her.

"That's what you get from ignoring me!" she said with finality.

So sorry to hear this. Does your migraine headaches appear on the onset of your period? To me it does. I'd be lucky if I dodge the bullet every month. Or when the weather is overcast, often that not, it will instigate a headache. Hope yours get better soon. Take it easy.

I'm on a 7-day medication. If after this I still get episodes, off to MRI I go. The doc said it's the next step. Gotta see what's in there, eh?

So sorry...I have never had them...but I have friends who do....I hope she goes away on a long vacation....somewhere where she'll get detained for public nuisance....

I'm so sorry you suffer from them, too. I find that a cold compress on the base of my neck plus meds and sleep help mine....not always available, I know!
