Okay, talk about false hope.
The past two weeks have been fairly symptom-free, hence the lack of posts to my blog. Then this morning, I have a killer headache ALL FREAKING DAY. I decided to skip my morning two cups of coffee, and I regret it. I also ate some chocolate from some stupid IT vendor which I think may have really been the trigger. Usually foods don’t reliably trigger the headaches, but today without caffeine it may have hurt more than helped.
Now, please take the shoes of one of my coworkers. Mind you, everyone knows that I have horrible headaches and practically know my underwear size (because I have the misguided impression people give a shit). Now today, I told my coworker that I am having a red-hot headache and my eyes are playing Pong in my skull. She then continues to start talking smack about other people and somehow whining while whispering. At that point, I envisioned myself taking my stapler and Swingline-ing her flaps shut. Wow was I pissed.
I ended up getting Tylenol from a friend at work because my stupid ass didn’t have anything on hand. This is the type of person that I am – I have migraines on a consistent basis and also asthma but NOWHERE do I keep pain relievers or my inhaler on hand. I’m a Rescue 911 victim ready to happen.
I ended up coming home with the pain still, took Ibuprofen and slept for an hour. My partner woke me up and I could still see stars and wanted to vomit. Against my better judgment I took two Excedrin and went along my caffeine-induced rabbit hole ride to bliss. The headaches eventually went away but now I’ll fall asleep very late.
I know, bitch bitch bitch bitch. I like to whine, as I’ve mentioned. I blog, so that makes me a whiner. And like I said, I have the illusion that people give two bits about my inane life. 🙂
I still am not convinced that Topamax is the way. I am seriously considering trying a new neurologist from a different network of doctors. My insurance plan recently opened to another local network that I’ve never tried. Could find someone into more alternative treatments.
More later. Thanks for reading.
