From Minnesota

Gosh it feels like I've been away from my blog for month. I was feeling so lousy, I didn't have a reliable migraine rescue and I had a two day car trip ahead of me. I ended up leaving on Friday, two days ahead of schedule to avoid driving during my period (the migraines are always harder to treat during). Yesterday afternoon I arrived sore, exhausted and just so glad to be done with the driving. The last 3 hours or so were the toughest because my neck was just screaming. It didn't take long after getting out of the car and sitting in a regular chair for my neck to calm down and feel okay again. No damage done.

It was a tough trip because of the reactions I've developed from my rescue medication. In the meantime I've missed so much of what's been going on with my fellow bloggers and have been neglected making posts myself. But now, at long last, I've arrived in Rochester and I'll have the time and energy to give attention to blogger again.

A quick update: Yesterday my chest pain finally started to feel better. That is, until I tried the new rescue medication. It did a satisfactory job with the migraine but it also made the chest pain much worse - just as I feared. The search for a good rescue will have to resume on Monday when my doctor returns from vacation.

I hope you all were able to enjoy your Thanksgiving. I'm super thankful for all of you!


  1. Thrilled to hear you made it safe & sound without too much discomfort. I don't think I'd be able to do that! In April we took a road trip to Savannah, which is 8 hrs. from where we live, but I dosed myself full of drugs & slept the whole time!

  2. Glad you made it, and are feeling ok! Bummer about the new medication, but you thought it might be so....

    Hoping you find an acceptable substitute.

  3. Yeah, that's the trouble with taking a road trip alone. I honestly don't know how I made it.

  4. So glad you made it safe and sound. I hope you can find a better rescue drug soon! Have fun with your family, relax, and enjoy yourself!
