Treatment # 4

Treatment # 4- Completed
Only 8 more to go!
So far so good, however, I am sure come tomorrow morning, it will be a different story.
It's a good thing too, that Nic is doing well. I seemed to have developed what I would say is one of the top 5 migraines I've ever had. I get them here & there, & my pills usually take care of them. I rarely get to the point where I am sick to my stomach & vomit. Well, my friends, today was that day. A sick to my stomach migraine. I took a double dose of my medicine. It took the edge off enough that I could still function- as I vomited. Then the time came for me to take more. I took a different kind, I haven't thrown up since, and my migraine has gone down to a headache. I will certainly be taking a sleep aid tonight, so I can wake up refreshed tomorrow.
What caused my migraine-- Well when I concentrate or get ency, I grit my teeth, too much of that is not a good thing. If I don't drink enough water, that is a contributor, if I don't eat right (too much MSG or don't eat when I need to) another contributor. When I stress (which is every other Wednesday and then some). I happened to do all of the above today. It makes for a great reminder that I need to take my water bottle to work, & make time for breakfast and lunch, try to relax a little, and calm down. Sounds easy right?????

I'm sorry to hear that you aren't feeling too hot right now! That is not fun when you have to take care of the rest of the family. I wish we lived closer so we could help you out...did Nic ever get magazine subscriptions like you posted after his first treatment?

Man... I can't even imagine have a migraine. Headaches are annoying enough for me. Hopefully you are feeling better today!

Migraines are a BITCH!!! Have you tried maxalt? They are these little disintegrating tablets that you pop on your tongue even when you have the slightest inkling of a migraine. I get auras with mine and the second I have a bit of vision loss I pop a tablet. Within seconds my vison is back and I never get a migraine. You should try it.

Nic has had 3or4 magazine subscriptions sent in for us by some friends. They take a few weeks to go into effect, but we are getting them now. Wahoo

Maxalt-- hmm, nope haven't heard of it, I'll have to ask my doctor. I have the generic imitrex, & balbutibal- or something like that. if I remember to take that 1-2 times a day, it will ward off my headaches, but some days I forget, or have too many triggers & they over ride the balbutibal. Which reminds me to take one-- NOW!!! Ü
