Loopy

I woke up with a migraine this morning. Brian wasn't here to help with the kids so breakfast, lunches, and getting the kids off to school was solely my responsibility. Yikes. I did breakfast and lunches then took my migraine medicine. Once I felt the meds kick in I directed traffic from a kitchen chair. The phone rang so I had to walk to the salon to answer it. A friend called to check on me because I tweeted that I had a headache. She laughed at my slurred southern drawl. I could tell I was slurring my words, but I had no idea that I was letting the south shine through. Thank you, Zomig. I'm still feeling the loopiness even as I write this. And why I felt the need to write a blog post while under the influence is beyond me. And I've had to delete and retype quite a bit because I am misspelling everything. I should get in my bed. Thanks and goodnight...er...good morning.

Oh no! Migraines must be just awful. I have only had what I know to be called 'blind' migraines. My vision gets dark like I'm looking through a dark curtain but I have no pain. I take two ibuprofen and close my eyes and it's gone in 15 or 20 minutes. I've been to eye doctors and medical doctors and they say not to worry but I think it's so bizarre. It seems to be triggered by bright flashes of lights in my peripheral vision and, thankfully, I only have then once a year. Maybe twice. I've always felt lucky that I don't also have pain or nausea. Hope you feel better!

Natalie, you shouldn't bring those pills to class unless you have enough to share with everyone!

sorry you have migraines! and why do people always laugh at you when you are trying to talk after taking migraine meds... i had to have my friend drive me home from work once because i couldn't see and i tried over and over just to tell her three simple things ~ never could get them out and she laughed all the way home... i also hope you are feeling better!

mamadallama - i wish i didn't have pain to go along with mine. i tend to get one about once a month, but it had been longer than that between the last two. thankfully!

cj - i know. they are nice for sure!

sra - you should have seen my facebook status update under the influence. i promised to slur sweet nothings to anyone who called me. good grief!

reluctant housewife - thanks! the meds usually don't take long to fix the problem!

supersmartkooger - hi!

lynn - thanks for reading!

anon - yep. they are. there is no way ag could handle that in the mornings though. she would be a basketcase. she already is most mornings.

friyet - i know. i guess i would laugh at drunken friends as well. they are amusing for sure!
