I don’t get them often, but Sunday night through Monday night, I had a horrible migraine.
It was funny because all day Sunday – after I returned from my 3-hr drive, I had people commenting – asking if I was OK. “Oh yeah” I would say because I felt fine. Little congested – small headache – I must have run into something while out of town that I was allergic to. No big deal.
Don’t get sick, they all said.
Then I woke up Monday feeling horrible. My eyes felt crossed – my body wanted to sleep in a dark room in hopes of feeling better. I slept most of Monday away. And went to sleep early Monday night. Then slept until 10am today.
After I woke up today, I felt like the fog had lifted. I wasn’t 100% but it was MUCH better. I felt like I could be in a room with light. I could look at a screen. I could actually do shit.
I’m not stupid. I know it is all stress related. This weekend was stressful for me. My parents ignored all of what I asked them to avoid with the foster kid – and dove right into it all. Needless to say, it was ugly for me. And stressful. And made me unable to sleep and all while there given I was in protective momma bear mode with the kid.
Toss into the mix the stress from other things including work – and I guess it was a recipe for a migraine.
I am happy it is gone.
Here’s hoping it stays that way.
