Migraines have to come straight out of hell.
I have no other explanation for their existence.
I woke up feeling a little off, but by noon my head was exploding.
I can’t really take the typical migraine medication because I got serotonin syndrome when it mixed with my psych meds. That was scary.
So I take a muscle relaxer and pray that it will calm things down enough to let the migraine pass. Sometimes it helps enough that I can take a nap and function later, sometimes I take the nap and wake up and feel worse.
Today is the second kind of day.
I’m not sick, unless it’s some kind of sinus thing that I’m not detecting. I don’t have a fever or any other symptoms. Just this blasted headache.
It’s probably stress/anxiety. I don’t know. What I do know is that this girl is not going to the emergency room for this headache on Halloween unless something dramatically strange happens to my head. I don’t know what I’m going to do about this headache, but the ER is not it.
So yeah. Just trying to rest and recover. I have to pass out candy to the little people later. Apparently, I only have to do that from 5-6:30 though, because our neighborhood association has dictated hours to us in an attempt to dissuade marauding teenagers.
I personally would hand out candy to teenagers who have made the effort to be in costume. I think our HOA is stupid. If they are getting candy, they are not egging someone’s car. Whatever.
I might just be the rebel on the block. No one said I was a good follower.
In any case, I’m off to rest.
