Someone please come and shoot me now
Or bring chocolate – cadbury, plain milk will do – although a few of those little cadbury turkish delight easter eggs would do the job
The only time I eat chocolate is when I have a migraine and then I seem to have this need to wolf it down. And strong sweet coffee. I know they're migraine triggers for some people but they help mine. Just takes the edge off for a while. Something to do with the caffeine restricting blood vessels my doctor once told me. Nothing makes them go away though, I've tried all sorts of different medications but you really just have to see them through. Three days is about the usual though so I should feel better tomorrow. Then you have the migraine hangover for a day. Just feel trashed.
At 11am I will have some medication that should knock me out for a few hours. I have to wait until 11 because our chemist only opens for one hour on Sundays – 11 till 12.
I always tell myself that I need to keep some pills on hand so I have them when I need them but then I never do. And I've passed the migraines onto Lizzie so she's dipping in the packet every now and then and using them up. Poor thing. She had her first migraine when she was about 13, I'll never forget how she looked. She couldn't even move her head.
My father used to have migraines. But then he had a mssive stroke and he tells me he hasn't had one since. Seems a pretty harsh trade though.
And I must say that a migraine combined with tinnitus is not so much fun. The tinnitus pulsates with the throbbing of the migraine.
Going to track down food. Carbs help as well.
