Another Day, Another Migraine

I'm in another bad stretch again - lots and lots of pain that I can't seem to get on top of. I'm pretty much just hunkered down trying to just be kind to my head. What a poignant reminder that my pain is far from under control, despite the excitement I've been feeling over the introduction of some good days. *sigh*

I hate being stuck inside on an unusually nice cloudy 50 degree winter day. Apartment living has sucked most of the fun out of being outside but I do love taking our dog for nice long walks when the weather permits. Most the time when it is super cold or super hot neither of us want to stay out more than 10 minutes. The nearby military base is conducting some kind artillery practices that are shaking the apartment and creating muffled booming sounds - much like distant thunder. This all scares our dog, who is now taking refuge under my legs. Poor thing.

On the other hand I love being inside with room darkening curtains protecting me from most of the daylight. I'm super thankful that I can create as much darkness as my head requires on any given day. I can adjust the brightness level and volume on the TV to suit my migraine induced sensitives and simply enjoy the distraction. Today the curtains are fully drawn and both the TV brightness and volume are very low.
Another day, another migraine.


  1. You are brave and a hero Migrainista! Hunker down as beautifully as you can and may the migraine surge end soon.

  2. :( but you look so stylish walking your dog there!!!

    I imagine these winter storms are doing a number on several people's heads. Hoping things get better soon!

  3. I'm so sorry you're feeling like crap again. I wish I could come over, tuck you in, and make you feel better.

  4. I wish I looked like that walking the dog - doing anything :)
    Thank you Joy, Winney and Della for your kind encouraging words.
