Not My Best Week

Last Friday, after gym, I took a shower before heading off to work. As I was locking the car doors, I started to see an aura at the left side of my left eye. I knew I was doomed. As I entered the office, I immediately searched for my migraine meds and realized that the puoch where I keep those meds were not with me. I immediately asked an officemate if she had a painreliever tab, luckily she did. So I took it. The aura was getting worse and worse and I just wanted to throw up. So I did. Out came the medicine. I took another one and tried to keep it inside me. But I couldn't. So out it went again. After about half an hour, I popped another tab into my mouth. I started work but in the middle of interviewing applicants, I would excuse myself just to run t the bathroom and throw up. Unlike others who are affected by heat or the glare of light during a migraine attack, I become very sensitive to sound. And some of my officemates were juts speaking so loud or laughing their hearts out. My head was throbbing. Lunch break seemed so far away. I tired to catch a quick nap while pretending to work right in fron of my boss --- didn't work. Come lunch time, I decided to go home to catch a quick nap-- I left the car and took a cab. I slept it off for a good 45minutes. When I woke up, I just had a headache. But I felt so drained--like a hang over.

On Monday. after coming from the beach, the lights went out twice- I was on the computer happily reading blogs. So I restarted the computer each time the lights would come back on. On my 3rd attempt, the screen of the laptop went blue and left me a message saying something like "check if hard disk corrupted." GREAT. I tried to troubleshoot (not a techy person here by the way) and after several attempts, I finally go the message: the hard disk did crash.

The next day, I went to the gym. I got great news. I do not weigh 118lbs, instead, I weigh 123lbs. I was 123lbs when I delivered the little one. AND THEN, they measured my body mass and body fat. The results: 20% of my total weight is composed of fat. How great can that be.

Yesterday, my boss met up with me and discussed some issues brewing at the office. Very petty and trivial things which in my opinion is so shallow. Too many other important things to focus on than such issues, but then...

Today was not as bad. I hope tomorrow will be better.

It will be.

Hi Louann. Sorry to know about the string of not-so-favorable things that happened to you lately.

Wishing you better days ahead. Take care.

I can't believe you worked through a migraine! Take care of yourself!

SusieJ said...

I get those auras too... and it's a bad sign... The best part is when that pain leaves. I hope tomorrow is better too.

Oh, Louann...Sorry to hear about all that. I hope you are feeling better today.

Just remember that tomorrow is a brand new day :) Hang in there! XOXO

I'm so sorry for the sucky day!

Have you ever tried Feverfew capsules? My husband gets horrible migraines but when he takes Feverfew (it takes a month to really work in your system) he doesn't get them anymore. I highly recommend it!

Ugh, migraine is not fun. I hope you don't get too many of them.
