So I didn't get to go on my aforementioned play date after all. Thanks to my favorite nemesis The Migraine.

It started with a smallish headache. I hoped that my diet of tylenol and pepsi would chase it away. Of course it didn't. I crawled thru the shower and went downstairs to my room to change. Where I was hit with a bitch of a headache. OMG. It was awful. This pain crawled behind my right eye. I was immobile. On my bed. In a towel. Laying uncomfortably on top of piles of clean clothes. And I'm immobile. I couldn't even bear the light of my room. And yet I couldn't get up to turn it off. All I knew was that A) I couldn't open my eyes without wanting to vomit B) couldn't move without wanting to vomit C) the pain coursing from behind my eye ball was strobing it's way through my body. I couldn't move to turn off the light, or reach for my phone to call Larry to bring me a bucket to puke in. I finally summoned enough energy to drag my ass up the eight stairs to the bathroom. I barely made it in when I vomited up everything I've had so far to eat today. I'm still in the towel from after the shower. I lurched to the living room where TJ was "Sick again?" and I was "Where's your brother?" and I stambled back downstairs. My head and room was spinning. I swept the items from my bed to the floor, and passed out for a few hours. Woke up a few hours later and the headache was gone. Just a  little weak.

I'm not really good with keeping track of time, but my estimate is that I get them maybe once or so a month. Sometimes more. Sometimes less. I've found that with migraines I have in extremem sensitivity to light. Pounding headache that starts behind my eye. And no amount of drugs cures it. It usually starts as a small headache and works into a migraine. The only way I can get rid of it is to take a nap in a dark room. I'm not sure how other people go to the hospital when they get these. I know for a fact that if I crawled into a moving automobile with a raging migraine that I would coat it in vomit. No doubt about it. I just figure they're a part of life. Usually I get them when I get myself good and exhausted from life. They show up now and again. And go away a few hours later.

But looking on the bright side, I didn't do squat today besides dabble a little on  this here blog, nap, and watch tv....

I'm sorry. I haven't had these in awhile. I barely tolerate baby aspirin when I do get them . sadly have yet to vomit but will agree that sleep is my only repair. Did u know ALL my girl friends in Spokane our ages get them too?? Maybe its in the rain.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
