I woke up to my alarm and the headache I started to get on Monday night had gotten worse. I woke up many times during the night, sick to my stomach. Sometimes throwing up and sometimes just retching.
Attractive. I know.
In any case, I still had to get up and help watch my nephew because my dad had to serve a Liturgy this morning (Holyday of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist… followed by a Panachida for all of those lost on September 11, 2001). After that was over though, I grabbed an ice pack and crawled back into bed.
So here I am, at 12:32AM, getting ready to watch one more episode of Supernatural before I call it a night.
The shower I took earlier helped to ease my headache, and because it’s a strict fast day due to the Holyday, there was no meat or dairy in anything I ate today. One of our family strict fast day staples is soup, so I got to enjoy a cup of potato barley soup for dinner.
This is also good for if I get sick again later on. It’s awful that this is what I think about when I eat while I have a migraine. It’s a necessary evil though.
In any case, I’m headed off to bed now, and hope to be able to be productive tomorrow. I have lots that I need to get done, and I have off of work until Friday. After that, my schedule starts to get more and more busy.
Here’s to hoping that all of you had migraine free days and that if you weren’t pain free, you were at least on the low end of your pain spectrum!
