Rough Day

Today's migraine is especially bad. I woke up not feeling quite right but that happens frequently. My neck, the back and sides of my head hurt pretty bad so the migraine wasn't far behind. I took my rescue meds early but then made the mistake of laying back down in bed. Once under the covers I quickly slipped into a nap that was neither restful nor recuperative.

I woke up several times over the next couple of hours knowing that I should get up and at least make it out into the living room. But it took about 2 1/2 hours before I was actually able to drag myself up. This is why I try not get back into bed once I'm up in the morning. If I have to rest it's just better to do so on the couch, where I can get back up after a short nap.

My rescue meds have done little so I'll have to take another dose here shortly. Today is just a rough day. It happens. It just seems like lately it has been happening more frequently. But I got up, showered and am even doing a load of laundry. I will do some gentle stretches and my relaxation stuff after Dr Oz. This is my road to wellness. I have to have faith that wellness will be at the end of it.


  1. I do hope you feel better this evening! I hope tomorrow is a better day for you too. Do the stretches work? I have tried some relaxation stuff, but my brain never turns off when I try it. How is it working for you?


  2. Thanks Heather. Yeah, the stretches and gentle yoga poses really do make a difference. The relaxation is tough. From everything I have read this is something that just takes time to get the hang of. It is one of those things that you just have to go through the motions and keep practicing until your body catches on. Don't give up.
