Here’s a fun factoid for all of you cubical-dwellers like myself.

What’s the easiest way to keep yourself from sleeping during a dull meeting? Why, yes, of course! Have a debilitating migraine!

I had to post a quick note about my experience about an hour ago. I was sitting in an extrememly boring meeting about the virtues of Microsoft Outlook and my head started to hurt. I was going to leave but then a discussion broke out with people whining about Groupwise features not being in Outlook. Not only was I crabby from the bitch fest, but I was getting pissed off at my head. Where do I keep my emergency meds? Oh, in a pill container attached to my keychain inside of my desk drawer. Super duper helpful. I also had someone staring at me because my eye was watering and I probably looked like a melting pile of shit in the corner.

By the time I got back to my desk, the pain was waning. I took Excedrin anyway. Blah. Now I feel like throwing up.

On a good note; my new insurance effective 1-JAN-2007 has my old neurologist in the plan of doctors.  The drug formulary is open much better which may mean I can get back onto Nexium.

It sounds like your new insurance will meet your needs. I hope it ends up working out that way.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I laughed when I read your description of the complaints regarding Groupwise and Outlook in your meeting. It was like deja vu for me! Sometimes it seems like people complain about the stupidest, irrelevant things. Of course, I’m pretty impatient, too.

Well, we’ve finally moved over to Exchange and the people finally see the light. Groupwise ruined my life so it’s good to be back in the comfort zone.
