This Morning

21 Apr

I started the day off a little weird today and I thought I would share. So I woke up at 5:30 which is the normal time I wake up (yeah it sucks). The moment I opened my eyes I felt the pain. I had a migraine. I get them all the time and waking up with one is not uncommon but this one was already full-blown. Usually when I wake up with one, it is still forming and I can take my medicine and get rid of it pretty quickly. But since it was already a full-blown migraine I wasn’t so lucky today. I took the medicine and tried to relax and eat breakfast. Of course, I was really sick to my stomach so food was not appealing, but I ate anyway. I kept waiting and waiting for my medicine to kick in but it was taking a really long time. I called my boss and told her I would be a little late.

I sat in bed for a while hoping the medicine would kick in. I remembered that I could take a second pill if the migraine was not gone within 2 hours. It was about 20 minutes shy of 2 hours so I decided to go grab a pill and find some water so I could take it right at 2 hours. I looked everywhere and couldn’t find my medicine. I had just gotten a refill two days earlier and I was so confused. I started thinking back to what I did with the bag from the pharmacy and realized I never took the medicine out before I threw the bag away. So at 7:00 in the morning I was digging through our trash can in the garage pulling nasty and unrecognizable things out. I finally found the medicine and washed my hands for about 10 minutes.

I got dressed and decided I didn’t need to take the second pill because I was starting to feel better. I put on my new pair of pants and couldn’t decide whether they were long enough for the heels I wanted to wear with them. I debated with myself for about 10 more minutes while JJ made noises and danced in the mirror in front of me. He said he was just trying to make me laugh. It worked.

I finally headed to work only about 45 minutes late. While drinking my coffee in the car I spilled it on my new shirt. I seriously almost turned the car around to go home and crawl back into bed. But I didn’t. Even after all that and the fact that my migraine meds have made me feel really weird, I make it to work! Looking back on my morning, it actually seems pretty funny now. But I am glad it is over.

    That is insane! I don’t know how you do it. I’ve only had one migraine and I thought I was going to die. Some people are so tough.
