I realized I hadn’t taken a photo for the day just as my migraine was taking off, so here’s me in a horrendous amount of pain and struggling not to barf. Fun!
Monday was actually a pretty decent day, except for the increasingly bad sinus headache that turned migraine as the day went on. I got groceries while M was at school again, and then baked a batch of oatmeal cookies to take to my mama-friend whose son just got to come home from the NICU, and then after M’s nap, we went over to their house and hung out with her and her wife and baby J and their older daughter K (who is 5 months older than M) and it was very nice, except for the POUNDING that was going on in my head. It hit a tipping point as I was driving M home from our friends’ house, and listening to her scream about not wanting to leave, and starting to have the kind of visual disturbances I have when I’m tilting into a migraine, which are SUPER FUN while driving solo with a screaming toddler. I could barely walk by the time we got home, but thankfully A arrived home on his bike shortly afterward and I was able to curl up on the couch and ignore everything (including dinner) the entire night. I felt terrible because A was supposed to go on a run that evening and instead he was stuck taking care of M because I was so useless, but there wasn’t anything I could do about it.
Still feeling muzzy and on the edge of horrible pain today. Not actually IN horrible pain, just like if I make one wrong move, it’ll come back.
