not much happening right now.

Carol  ·  Aug. 13, 2012 4 or 5? i can't remember but it seems like a long time! i made the trip into new westminster to get my paycheques. that took three hours out of my day AND i had to drive to the other side of the pitt river bridge...yuck...that bridge is as far away from home as i ever want to have to go. it is too busy on the other side..everyone is zipping and rushing along going where ever the heck they have to go. i hate it.

i think charm's eye looks a bit better today, but i am still watching it least for the next couple of days.
i really like this little max...he is a real sweetie. he does give blind little pepper shit when pepper tries to climb in bed with him but i don't think he knows yet that pepper is harmless.
i almost got caught up on the shop laundry today...will finish catching up on it tomorrow.

other than that everything seems to be ok. i missed an extra pick up shift in mission today cuz i had to go into new westminster, but honestly that is ok..i was really looking forward to these five days off so it was probably good that i had other plans..i just wish they were more fun type plans. well back to the couch..max and jazzy are keeping me company tonight while i try to get rid of this headache once and for all.



i am lucky with migraines cuz before the knife ends up in my eye, i get silent and painless visual disturbances first so many times i can hold them off at the pass if i take something right away..we can thank mom for our familiarity with migraines..remember her killer headaches?

i am pretty sure it is sinus and sinus's have been bothering me and friday i pretty much had a close to a stroke meltdown between flat tires, no paycheques with the MOST UNHELPFUL payroll dept. in the world! and finding a few unnecessary gross surprizes around here that should never have been.

either that or it is a tumor!..(just kidding) migraines are actually getting better since i finally got down to real menopause not the tricky fake in and out of the past 3 years.

you should let me design a spur of the moment, grab what you can, homemade drug combo for headaches for you tho too!
love ya!

and thank you lynn for looking out for me too!


I'm sure I don't have to tell you this, but if you have photophobia, phonophobia, or osmophobia along with throbbing pain and/or nausea it is a a migraine despite whatever combination of drugs is making it go away. Could be just the drugs making you sleep and the sleep is actually making the headache better. Unfortunately, I am a walking encyclopedia of migraine factoids. :-(
I hope you feel better soon. Headaches suck.


Oh good! A nurse, not just a nosey reader is looking after you! :) Can stop worrying now.


not migraine this time..i think it is tension/sinus cuz when i go to bed i take tylenol muscle and benadryl and it stays away until noon the next day.

Barbara (also a nurse)

Tension or migraine? If it's more than three days and it's a migraine you should see your doctor, Carol. Listen to your big sister for once. BTW, have you tried anything for migraine prophylaxis--you seem like a good candidate, imo.


Carol -- I know you are a nurse and all ;) and I am not...but a head ache for this many days? Is that something that someone should maybe drag you to a check up for? Just wondering out loud...
