My Bachelor Recap will follow, hopefully tomorrow, but here’s what’s been going on in the meantime.
On Sunday, I was thrilled to get my very first migraine headache (Mom, please make sure you put that in my baby book). I spent much of my day throwing up and sobbing hysterically. I woke up with this same headache Monday. I felt too weak to shower, so I washed my hair in my bathroom sink and went to work. On the way to work, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some Advil and ginger ale. My total came to $11.75. I had $2 cash and no debit card in site. The sweetest woman in all of SW Portland, paid for my order. I cried all the way to work.
The headache continued. On Tuesday, I went to work and then came home, feeling nauseous. After emptying the scarce contents of my stomach into the toilet, my head began pounding. I called my mom in hysterics. We agreed that if I woke up feeling the same way, that I’d go to the ER.
Yup, I woke up, and it was worse. Because of a family history of stroke, I had my pretty little head cat scanned. It was normal, ha! Basically, I just have the world’s worst migraine (my words, not the doctors, but I am sure he meant to say it).
I am home now. In bed, trying to not scratch my nose off (a fun side-effect to my medication is an itchy nose). I’ll be skipping the business trip and taking it easy.
I’m really not sure how much more of this I can take. It’s getting ridiculous.
