When Two Advil Is Not Enough...

Today marks the second day of my headache. It all began at the restaurant last night when the sudden onset of my aching head developed. Quickly, I popped two Advil and drank a large glass of water. Two hours later, I noticed it hadn't gone away. Another tow Advil with another large glass of water. Much to my surprise, I dozed off around 10:30...early for me.
Now I don't know if the Advil surging through my blood stream had anything to do with my dreaming cycle last night, but, my gosh.....dreams galore! Nice dreams for a change! Nothing was chasing me last night. No squirmy snakes to freak me out! Just nice pleasant dreams.
The saga continued into early morning when Fred kissed me on the cheek. He asked me if I still had a headache. I guess the pillow over my head to keep the early morning dawn away from my peepers was the dead giveaway. This time, I asked for three Advil. Back to sleep and more dreams.
My furry little boy, Will, couldn't stand the fact that at 9:30 this morning, his mommy was still dreamin' and demanded that I wake up because he wanted a belly rub. His appreciation was returned by giving me a series of head butts...the ultimate act a cat can give you!
As I drink my morning coffee, my head is still aching. Not wanting to admit it is a migraine, could probably be the reason I haven't taken my migraine meds. I know, it is silly, but I try to ride it out and sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't.
Could it be the heat? The poor air quality covering over the Atlanta area? Or could it be the sushi I ate last night? I can't answer those questions....but I'm taking my Imitrex. Truly miracle drug.

You poor baby. Yes, I know all too well how it feels. There is nothing in the world like it. Take your medication and get some much needed and beneficial rest. I hope to hear from you soon that you are well and back to normal :)

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. I suffered with migraines when PG with Dusty. My heart now feels for anyone who has them. I hope you feel better soon.
