Migraines (hate ’em!)

on November 12, 2012

Our high today was 41 degF…woke up to temps in the teens (brrrrrr) so I layered up like a tundra nomad. I always wear tank tops under my outfits when temps start dropping and today called for many more layers. Although by lunch time, it was actually quite beautiful with the sun out in its fully glory. I busted out my old Banana Republic toggle coat…love this coat, it’s quite luxurious and cozy (bday gift from my sis about 3 years ago). The skinny cords are a great alternative to jeans; comfy and warm.

The past three days have been hellacious for me…I got an attack of migraines, one right after another…one was epic in the pain meter. It always starts out the same; I see waves and the waves get bigger and bigger until it blocks my entire vision, followed by a massive headache. There’s nothing I can do but lock myself up in a dark room and ride it out. In the past, the migraine was usually triggered by my caffeine intake.  When I finally figured it out, I stopped drinking anything with caffeine altogether.  For a long time, I was migraine free after that.  I always know when Starbucks mistakenly gives me regular coffee vs. decaf…I get a migraine right after.  But this was by far the worse migraine attack I’ve had…the hubby is attributing it to stress at work. I think he’s right, although I did have regular Coke earlier in the week.  My PC woes have been frustrating as I am unable to finish a project that is so close to completion. I truly hope my girls don’t inherit this particular ailment of mine – it’s one of those that doctors don’t have an answer for so they prescribe some meds as a band aid but they never work. Today has been migraine free so far (knock on wood) but my head is still throbbing which is normal as it takes me a couple of days to recover. Hopefully, this week goes by migraine-free…wish me luck!

PS:  iPhone 4/4S cases are 25% off in stores at J.Crew – I got the paisley pink/orange one as seen in the pic below and here.  Love it!!
