Sunday Snippet

Friends, some of you know I am a migraine sufferer. I get them so often, I've learned to cope with the insanity. Last night, however, I felt like I was truly on the brink of death. For me, total migraines come from all sorts of triggers: alcohol, perfume, fatty foods, chocolate, exhaustion and stress. I drink very little, never wear perfume, try to watch my fat intake (I'm already a vegetarian) but there's no way I can quit chocolate and exhaustion is usually my middle name. So, I did eat a large hunk of chocolate cake yesterday and my husband and I did do a lot of work on our house...and therefore around 7 p.m. I developed a small headache which turned into a monster. I was in bed by 9 and the headache is still with me...and now it's nearly 10 a.m. I'm sorry for not having my post up at 12:01 a.m. as is customary, but I just couldn't. Please watch some of my all-time favorite videos. Hopefully I'll ditch this headache and I can get a real post up for tomorrow.

Hope you feel better. My Dad always got them when he was working a stressful job where he was regularly putting in 12 hour days.

Hi Allyson,

You definitely have my empathy for even needing to learn to cope with living with something like that. I hope you're feeling better!

Not fun. I get about one migraine a week. Excedrin Migraine has been a lifesaver for me. If I take a couple of those when I first feel one coming on, I'll usually feel a lot better. Other than that, I just try to rest which isn't easy to do when I get them at work. I have been known to shut the office door and lay my head on my desk if I have to.
