Had a Tough Week

So I've had a migraine since last Monday. Needless to say this past week has been a challenge. The rescue meds, which usually do a pretty good job are not. They take about 5 hours to make a noticeable difference and even then I'm not getting much relief. Then, within a few hours I can already feel them wearing off as the migraine just intensifies. I've been timing the medications so that I can still do stuff like visiting with my g-ma in-law, going out and running errands.

I was fully expecting an ugly backlash after all the cooperation I got during my grandma's final couple months, but still, it sucks. I'm trying to keep my spirits up but as usual this kind of a set back not only drags my spirit down, but it also makes me more irritable and leaves me feeling less hopeful about ever getting on top of the pain.

How I long for a normal life again. Will I ever have one?


  1. I'm sorry...I've had a horrible week too. What rescue meds do you take?

  2. I hope this week is better for you!


  3. I hope and pray that someday soon you will get back the life you knew and miss. I think with continued medical care, and seeing your new doctors more, you will find the relief you have been searching for.

    As someone who has struggled to get her own life back over the last few years, I certainly sympathize with you. Every time I *think* I am *there* I have some kind of relapse. I have made amazing progress though, all things considered.

    You will too!

  4. I'm so sorry that you're having such a rough time. I hope that you're migraine eases up soon, dear. Blessings.

  5. I'm sorry to hear that you are having a tough time too Jessica. I take a generic Imitrex and use Voltaren Gel on some tender nerves on my head.

    Thanks for all your encouragement and kind words ladies!

  6. Hope you are feeling better soon. The pain just flat wears you out, doesn’t it, Sunshine. Best to you.
