I recently enjoyed three tolerable days back to back. They were fabulous! I was beginning to think I had a system going. Then while out with a friend, for the first time in MONTHS, the twinkles started. But all I could take was an over-the-counter pill — shoulda just sucked a mint. The prescription pills I have come with a label: Don’t Exceed More Than 10 Of These In A Month. By the second week I’d met the quota. I think I need a new prescription.
I ignored the twinkles hoping the migraine wouldn’t come (my symptoms very rarely start right after my aura). Five hours later, in the middle of my Blogilates workout – !!WHAM!! – and my workout was over…
I immediately spiraled into depression. My husband, who’s thankfully optimistic, said focus on the fact that you had three tolerable days back to back. Tolerable days that allowed you to cross a number of things off of your to do list – that’s progress. Focus on what you’ve done. Gatta love him right?!
My migraine started on the 19th and it’s still going, but I’m trying to be positive. I’m trying not to let this disease sabotage my hope.
