The Day the Migraine went away

I got my Amazon order!! I placed my order around 9:30 last night and I just got it. It's unbelievable! Amazon rocks!!

I'm not sure if anyone else gets as excited as I do when the Amazon truck pulls in front of their house. I get almost giddy when I see the delivery person walking up my driveway carrying a box with the Amazon smile/arrow on it. It really does feel like Christmas morning.

Today has been the first full day of me feeling okay. I get migraines from time to time and on Thursday, my birthday no less, I got a humdinger. It's horrible. Light, sound, movement, and even the feeling of a blanket resting up against my cheek is painful. I don't even want to talk about the vomiting/dry heaving. Oh how I hate migraines.

My doctor has prescribed me some meds to take. But I don't like to take them unless I absolutely have to. I don't like taking medicines as it is, but these ones make me feel all loopy and knock me out. So I was in bed pretty much all day Thursday and most of Friday. When I woke up late Friday evening, I noticed that I was feeling much better even if I still had a slight headache. I'd take a headache over a migraine any day.

And since I hadn't eaten for two days, this morning I made myself some chicken noodle soup for breakfast. (Yep, soup for breakfast. I'm also a big proponent of cake for breakfast or, since I don't have cake, a handful or two of M&Ms.) Then I had more soup with a few crackers for lunch. It's been my experience that I can't rush into anything crazy when I eat right after experiencing a migraine. If I'm up to it, I think I might grill a piece of chicken and make myself a small salad for dinner. Not only does my body need some veggies but I don't want all of the vegetables in my refrigerator to go bad before I can use them.

Well, this computer screen is a little too bright for me right now. So, ta!
