Well, the first storm of the month has passed; meaning my first week traveling for work went okay.Â It was very warm and required a lot of walking and using stairs.Â I easily lost weight this past week, which kind of makes it a good week.Â I spent most of the time working on site and sleeping.Â I didn’t have much time to myself.
The headaches weren’t around much until Friday.Â Around 10am, I noticed a headache starting.Â I only had two Tylenol on me which helped a little.Â When my boss and I were in the airport around 3pm, it hit me like a fridge.Â Right around when we sat down to wait for our plane, I couldn’t handle it any more.Â I went and got a soda for both of us and spent $7.99 on a little bottle of Excedrin.Â Stupid here checked all my meds.Â When I got back I told my boss I felt like I was getting a migraine.Â Up until this point, I have not mentioned any “ailments” to my boss or coworkers.
What shocked me is he responded with, yeah I get those too.Â Talk about relief.Â He’s had migraines since he was 10 years old, making nearly 40 years of his life affected by migraines.Â How shitty.Â He and I talked about our migraines and realized we actually had something in common outside of work.Â It was nice to feel like I didn’t have to hide it any more from him.
The headache didn’t go away for almost two hours.Â I haven’t had a headache like this since fall.Â I felt like I was going to throw up on the airplane.
I go back again tomorrow morning.Â It’s nice working somewhere other than my cubicle, but I don’t think I can handle a career doing this very often.Â This was an evaluation for me as well for a new type of job.Â We’ll see where it goes.
