Hours of Sleep: 9~ 9.5
I feel: ecstatic
Weather is: Bright and Sunny

Head still hurt this morning, but much much less than last night so I was happy enough about that. Hunter and I went to the ren faire in town and got some sun and air and more sun. Not too bad at the moment, just a touch between my eyes, and a low grade 'feel' to the back of my head and that spot, just a touch of something, but not sharp enough to really be pain. Bit of a pricking on my right temple though, but with last night still in mind, so much better.

Pretty maids, all in a row...

Hours of Sleep: 7.5
I feel: cranky
Weather is: Cloudy/Sunny

Ok, got this thing off my journal proper and into a community so I can whine and rant and keep it all organized. I thought the whine/wine pun was fitting because after the 34587th 'my head hurts' that's pretty much what I feel like I'm doing, pain or no. Plus I get to use pretty colors that don't hurt my eyes like white backgrounds have begun to do. Hence even the text being toned down to pink, normally a color I would despise, but it works I think. Perhaps images someday?

So, head still hurts, nothing new. It's stepped up from last week and it's a building dull pressure. If I didn't have a docter appointment Tues I'd probably get concerned, but, really, it's not anything new, just not fun. I hate that I've gone from ithurtsithurtsithurts to, yeah, it hurts again, but what am I gonna do? I'm getting used to it I guess and that's not a comfortable thought to me. Mostly surrounding pressure, prodding at temples, That One Spot, and the back of my head. It's corrupting my neck a bit too, or that could be posture, but it doesn't really make a difference does it? 5 hours in to my 6 hour shift at the lab, so sorry for being dour, I'm tired, bored and in pain, but what's new? Took some of the uber meds the doc prescribed: no effect really. And now it feels like the back of my head is burning or being singed. Joy.

EDIT: By the time I got off work and had gotten home my head was hurting much worse. I pretty much stumbled into my room and laid down, waking up an hour later to take something and eat a bit then going back to sleep for awhile longer. Eventually I woke up again and it had lessened enough to the point consciousness wasn't agony, so I washed my face, took my medicine and went back to bed for the night. I don't think it was the worst one I've had- pretty sure I've had worse, but they all start to run together into waves. Felt like somebody tried parallel parking behind my head and had crashed into my brain, forcing it up against the front of my skull. So, so bad. Dinner was a dainty affair- the rasberry vinegret was too sour at first, it made the room spin for some reason and I felt like I was about to pass out. After eating I felt nauseous for a bit, but that passed to. Go me! I can almost eat dinner normally! : /

Hours of Sleep: 8
I feel: apathetic
Weather is: Cloudy/Rainy

Once I got home from class and work I didn't do much. Had a bit of a nap- felt so nice. I've pulled my laptop onto my bed and brought my classbook too. Dunno why, sure don't feel like studying. Head hurts alot today, maybe worse than yesterday. That Spot hurts, temples and back of the skull. The usual suspects. Mostly a dull pain, just a constaint one. Think I might be going to bed early again. Medicine is still pretty useless but the doc said that taking iBProfen too much could just give me a reaction headache after. And since I'm pretty much counting on still having my migraine, I don't want to double down on that. Not a safe bet. But I found something good to read and have been snickering quite a bit over it. Escapism indeed.

Doctor's Orders

I feel: frustrated

So I had an appointment to see my doctor today about the migraines. The good news is that my cholestorol and blood fat (?) are much lower, they had been high the time before, apparently enough to worry her. So I ate more salads and less fast food and now she's happy so I guess I'm happy about that. My headaches and the increasing frequency of them have her a bit worried though, and me very frustrated, so she said that since they hadn't stopped, indicating I guess a seasonal or stress related cause, that I should see a nuerologist. My head was starting to hurt then and there- I had been waiting in the little room for over 50 minutes by the time I saw my doctor, so I was not a good patient but I did remember to ask some questions. The result? She doubled my daily preventative meds and I go see a brainiac on Tues.

My head was still hurting when I got home, so I took what has become my daily nap. Medicine still no help. Same spots, dull bruisy nasty pain.

My head hurts differently today, a bit at least. Not a vice-grip feeling but more like certain spots. The back of my skull like what has become the usual but also the right side about half an inch behind my ear and a second spot about 2 inches from that- up and forward. Then in a spot right above the outside of my right eye. I feel foggy too- not like I'm half asleep, but just like there's a large chasm my thoughts are having to jump over in transit. It's worse when I have to think about stuff and then talk to someone else- like if someone has a problem in the lab I have to try and really focus on wading through the molasses to answer it for them. Very odd and a little disconcerting. Still wondering if the odd weather has something to do with it.

This afternoon we got sun! In class this morning it was kinda difficult to pay attention to what I was doing- something that I usually don't have a problem with. Head felt mostly normal, which means just a dull pressure, but I was mostly ok. When I got home from work and class it was sunny with a cool breeze so I opened some windows and lay down for a nap in the sunbeam that hit my bed. My cat thought it was a great idea too.

Head has hurt all day. Nasious, freezing. Gonna go on to bed early. Pain: right side again, same spot, back of head in that spot too. G'night.

Did I miss the party?

Well, yesterday was a bit of a breather but today has slid back down. I still feel like I took a bat to the head (enough so that I keep checking for swelling) and as the day has gone on I feel more and more like I'm suffering a hangover- not normal. Don't know if it's getting progressively worse because I am on my last 10 minutes of a 5 hour shift at the help desk at my university's computer lab, if I'm coming down with something, or if it's just getting worse. Called my doctor- had an appointment in about 3 weeks to check back up on the migraines again and moved that up, so later this week I'll go get my blood taken (needles! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!) and then next week I'll go have a little chat with her and see what she can do about making the little voice with the big banner ("What if it's a TUMOR?!?") go away. My brain makes me worry. Why can't it just sit there and be happy being in charge of everything like it used to be?

I don't think it's right that I feel like dancing just because the immediate pain is gone. There's still pressure, like I am walking around with a vice clamped to my head, but it's an improvement! Hopefully it'll finish going away.

My cat discovered some wonderful news she jut had to share with me this morning. Seems a bird was perched under the eave or somesuch outside the window that my bed is directly under. So as she jumps for this little birdy she lands right on top of me...at 5:30 am. I finally went back to sleep but it looks like my migraine isn't gone, tho it's slightly more of a dull roar with the fun addition of feeling like someone swung a basebat at the back of my head- but the bruised feeling is inside the skull. just noticed I get to take 2 of the emergency medicine to begin with- and then one an hour no more than 6 in a 24 hour time frame...maybe it'll help this time.

*EDIT: Nope, still feel generally run over. Some IBProfen let me wish Happy Mother's Day to mom, but it was a near thing.

Ow ow ow ow, it feels like I have a claymore lodged in my brain. Left side, middle third, right under skull. Sharp and hurty, gonna take some medicine and lie down.

*EDIT: After a 2 hour nap there's less stabbing pain and more pressure, still hurts tons. I was fine this morning, what happened? Gonna take it easy and go to bed early I think.
