Thought I might die

No blog post yesterday because I woke up with another migraine. Actually I went to bed with it, got woken up by an earthquake, realized I felt better, then woke up at 4am in so much pain I told Mike my eyes were gonna explode. His response: cool!

Ha I love that man.

My doctor is also a close friend of ours, so he got this text…

If you have never had a migraine, you are one lucky duck. I can not function with one. It’s like a headache on steroids with a pretty gnarly lack of concentration/brain fog. Walking takes a lot of effort and concentration.

A couple injections later I was starting to feel a little better. It took several hours even with the drugs to feel somewhat normal. I figured lunch would help so I went to Chipotle since the boy wasn’t there to veto it. Sometimes his life decisions are just sad.

I was feeling better little by little and spent the afternoon buzzing around the house. The plumbing is finally fixed so I was able to get the kitchen back together. Not that I plan on learning how to cook anytime soon, but at least it’s clean.

I worked the other day and was blown away by this Pebble Beach sunset, post rain. I had to stop on my way in to snap a couple pics to share with you.

It blows my mind they pay me to come here. It’s quite humbling.

In other, far more uplifting news here are a couple inspirational things that caught my eye from social media.

Is there a restaurant you love, but your significant other/friends/family do not?

Any fun plans for the weekend?

Fill me in on your Thanksgiving plans.

We are going to my favorite person on the planets house. Can’t freaking wait!

  1. I had a migraine Monday and Tuesday and I haven’t ever taken an injection for pain. But I’m considering it. My migraines induce clinging to the porcelain God and 12 hours of unbelievable head pain. Did you try other remedies before using the shots of pain reliever???? My migraines scare me so I’d really like to avoid more. Lol. I hope you don’t have another one for a looooonnnggggg time, too.

  2. Don’t hate me, but I’ve never had a migraine…my Aunt has and a co-worker gets them pretty bad. I thought maybe I would get one since I’ve read its something that can come up when your pregnant, but so far so good (knock on wood). I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chipotle, my husband will tolerate it, but I think thats only because there isn’t one where we live, the closest one is 90 minutes away. This weekend we are traveling to Boise where all our families live! I am so excited, I haven’t been home since the end of September. Tomorrow we are going to register for the little Baby! I am also ridiculously excited about this, I get to run around Babys R Us with that scanner gun.

    I hope you have a migraine free fun weekend!

  3. Migraines suck! It’s been about a month since my last one so I have been lucky. I’ve suffered with them since I hit puberty. Now a days I just get daily headaches but they are at least controlled…somewhat.
