The Migraine Monster Awaits

Today has been one of those annoying days when I woke up with a migraine knocking on the door. It has hurt all day. The migraine pain sat just off to the side making all kinds of threatening gestures and barking orders at me before finally taking over.

I hate days like this. I try so hard to do the right thing and not aggravate the migraine monster but he wins anyway. If I had known he was going to eventually win I would have gone ahead and aggravated him earlier so I could have treated him earlier and would feel better for date night tonight with my husband.

I wonder if there is a better way to deal with days like today? I wonder if I'm doing the wrong thing by being so careful on days like this. How do you handle these days when your pain is walking that thin line between migraine and regular pain? Are you careful not to aggravate the monster like me or do you just proceed like normal and let the chips fall where they may?


  1. I usually do my best to ignore the pain and keep busy until it finally catches me off guard and kicks my hinny. In almost 20 years I've never discovered the secret to how to deal with it. *sigh*

  2. Migrainista - loving the illustration!! Thinking of it popping out of my head! ewww.

    I tend to go the WRONG way by ignoring everything and letting the chips fall. Not a strategy I would recommend, have gotten in a really bad way a few times.
