Head. Yes, I woke up with a flaming migraine. Flaming you ask? Yep, I get lightning bolts. In my peripheral vision. Jagged lines of blue and yellow that appear as i get tunnel vision.
Then there’s the nausea and fever.
In other words, fun times ahead. Thankfully sleeping is a great cure all. So I slept then slept some more.
After dinner when the fever and nausea were manageable, I wanted to write. Alas, my characters weren’t loud enough to be heard above the pounding in my head.
Frankly that was annoying. I wanted them to speak to me. I want to get hopping on this series.
Alas not even aspirin and a hot shower could dull the pounding, so I gave up for tonight.
But tomorrow is another day, and I will write. Even if I have to call in the Doctor. That’s DR Pepper. Caffeine can do miracles.
It’s almost pitiful that science has cured erectile disfunction but can’t cure migraines or epilepsy.
After watching my sister-in-law go through viral encephalitis only to develop epilespy and discovering that the medication for epilepsy can work for some and not others and no one knows exactly why the medication works or doesn’t is amazing. We also have a friend who suffered from migranes and found out it was the same thing. Some meds work and others don’t depending on the individual. After all the science that has been done there is still so much we don’t know about the brain. I can feel sympathy for you but thankfully not empathy. Sympathy because I hate to see a friend hurting and not being able to do anything about it.
I rarely get them so I’m thankful. Most of the meds that treat it I can’t take because of my heart but sometimes I’ll drink the dr pepper and suffer with the consequences
What’s wrong with Dr Pepper? Personally I can stand it because 30 years ago, while I was in my specialty school after bootcamp I drank a whole quart of rum with only 1 can of Dr Pepper available in the soda machine in the barracks. Nope, no coke or anything else in the machine. Anyway I was sicker than a dog the next day and since then can’t stand the taste of Dr Pepper.
Nothing is wrong with Dr pepper. It and RC are my favorite sodas but the caffeine causes horrendous chest pain for me as my heart rate skyrockets then plummets. I’m hoping to put off that pacemaker for anothe decade
