More Migraines

I had a migraine late Saturday night, which actually wasn't all that bad because I immediately took Immitrex and went to bed and fell asleep. On Sunday, all I had was residual pain when I bent over.

But this morning, I felt great and rushed into work for a very cool class starting at 9:00AM.  I stopped in the ladies room before heading in to take my seat -- and I saw sparkles. Another migraine!  No. I was so disappointed because it would have been awesome to take the class. Darn darn darn.

I had Immitrex in my pocketbook and took a pill with handfuls of water from the sink in the bathroom. I stopped in the classroom to let the instructor know I had to go home, and now I am home. The sparklles are gone, and the headache pain is starting.

I just wanted to quickly post before I crawl into bed and (I hope) fall asleep.

I remember that I had like six migraines the first time that I started chemo, in 2007. And I had a bunch of migraines last year. For while I even had a counter "How Many Days Till Migraine?" on the blog in 2009.

Hi Karen,

I'm sure if you're reading this you are feeling a little bit better. I do remember the countdown from last year. I hope it doesn't come to that this time. Migraines are the absolute pits! Hang in there and know hugs are being sent your way->(((((Karen))))

Love, CQ
