I’m having a moment, trapped in my body. I curl my hand around the coffee mug, and the heat of it holds me fast to my body, to the here, and the now, and the physical. Small wonder: I’m coming out of a two day long migraine attack and I am achingly aware of my… Continue reading Coffee and Cat Hair: Devotional Stories
So, to catch me up because I don't know that I've written this down yet: Got hit with a pretty bad one on the 21st, which lasted 2 days, though day 2 was a lot more tolerable. Had a break in the pain for part of the 23rd, but woke up with a wretched attack… Continue reading Did somebody say migraines?

Medicine has been taken, work has been notified, and I'm frustrated as fuck. I suspect my pillow is triggering… Continue reading Am Sure Migraine

It's favoring the left side, which has me thinking it could just be pain from having slept wrong -- generally the migraine that hits the back of my head hits it full across. Took two ibuprofen, don't… Continue reading Not sure if migraine
Again, for my own records. Need to sit down and update the file I've got going in docs about this -- arguably that would be time better spent than posting this, but also, whatever. ;-pYesterday morning, by 8 it was clear I was having a hard time thinking thoughts and speaking words. I also complained… Continue reading Migraine caught!
More for me than for you, though you're obviously welcome to read.Got hit with "I'm so tired." on the 28th, on the way home from work. Complained about it ad nauseum, until it clicked that two migraines ago I had complained ad nauseum about being tired the day before. So, I took the medicine and… Continue reading Migraines, cont.
