I used to have at least one major migraine each month, with another 2 or 3 thrown in for good measure.
Since my cancer surgery, I haven't had near as many headaches, let alone the migraines.
Until February 2020.
The last week of February and the first week of March - O.M.W.
This migraine has been making up for lost time!
It started around the 27th of February, a growing pain in the temples and above my eyes. One that slowly spread over the top of my head and encircled my head like a vice grip.
By Friday the 28th, it was a full blown migraine. For over 24 hrs it was registering about a 15 on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the worst! Difficult to even open my eyes. Smells, even normally good ones, set my stomach to rolling. Finally, Sunday, March 1, brought with it a bit quieter pain level. After 2 nights of being more up and awake due to the pain, I took a nap - oh how good that felt!
Today is March 4, and still the headache lingers. Yesterday it was registering between 5-8, more at the 8 than not. Thankfully today it has been between 3-5.
I took this picture on my Momma's birthday & Texas Independence Day - March 2. This was after 60 hours of the migraine ... Not the best pic ever, but not the worst one either. I had felt a little better for about 3 hrs, so I walked a little on the treadmill - that was nice. It was a wonderful weather day!
Momma, you're not fat. You're fluffy!
These were the words of my precious little girl one day many years ago. The innocence of a child. The words both stung my eyes, and warmed my heart.
