well, i should keep a log of my headaches. so since im on the AO so often, might as well make use of this new blogging function.

monday 8/25/08

woke up feeling lousy. the pain wasnt so bad, but noticeable. what was bad what feeling weak, naseous, dizzy, and just plain out of it. unfortunately, i couldnt call in sick today.

throughout the day, i only drank water and a carton of milk...was gonna have coffee, but thought that wouldnt help me any so i just drank the milk. i didnt eat breakfast or lunch...even though i was hungry and felt weak, any thought of food made me feel even more naseous than i was. i did my best to get some work done. i got a little bit accomplished, but even a little wasnt easy.

finally at 3, i was way hungry so i had a bagel. made me feel less weak, but, the naseau was still there and by this time, the pain had moved towards moderate. i tried focusing on work again. got some more things done. but i knew my naseua was growing. sure enough, about an hour or so later, i went to the ladies room on a different floor and did the deed. felt better, but not good. again, tried to get back to work. at this point, i wanted to go home but was worried b/c the traffic started early due to the weather and i did not want to be stuck in my car should the need to puke come again. so i stayed at the office, but had trouble staying focused on work.

soon, the blotchiness started. which i found odd b/c that usually comes first as a warning sign for a migraine about to strike. and within another hour or so, round 2 of puking struck. after that one, i felt better on the naseua front, but the head was hurting just the same.

again, i tried to do work, but finally said enough and left. went to target to pick up some soup and a Rx refill amond other stuff. i felt so weak and awful in there. i was moving so slowly. had to sit down for a while with a bottle of water, drinking some and putting the cold bottle on my forehead. that trip shoulda been 20 minutes. instead it was almost an hour long.

gtg, biab...
