Life Is Pain

When I say "Life is Pain", I am talking pretty literally. I live my life in constant pain, though some days are better than others.

I have daily chronic headaches, so I always have at least a dull ache in my head area. Usually I can ignore it. I know my triggers and I try to avoid them as much as possible. There aren't any medicines that work, but usually I can lead a fairly normal life.

Which is why I hate days like this. From out of nowhere, a horrible migraine hit me and I'm having a hard time doing anything. There is no reason that I can see, but I'm knocked down with extreme pain.

I am stubborn and I won't let a migraine stop me though. I still made dinner for Emily, made banana bread (since the bananas were about to go bad), wrote a lot of paid work and am about to put Emily to bed. My life doesn't stop when I get sick.

I just hope that I'll feel better tomorrow. We have a birthday party to go to and I want to feel a least a little better before being surrounded by a lot of rowdy kids (mine included).

  1. Migraines are the devil, my friend. I don't have them nearly as often as I did before my diagnosis and treatment for sleep apena. Before it was three or more times a week with blinding pain and nausea, but oddly enough, I suffered through it better than I do now that I typically only get them around my period. But, man, I'm down for the count. I guess my body has gotten spoiled.

  2. Yeah, the pain seems less than it used to be when it first started. But it's more like I've gotten used to it.
