all in the family

migraine

There are certain times in my life, today being one of them, when I get a migraine. They come fairly regularly, I suppose, but have a reasonable enough amount of time between instances that I try to view them as little more than a nuisance. Some months are better than others, but it could be worse.

Anyway, whenever I talk to my mom on the phone during a migraine (as I ridiculously attempt to go about my daily life) she always, always, always apologizes. It is, after all, her side of the family that these little beasties run in. Not that she had any choice in the matter either, or her grandmother, or my brother, etc. etc. etc. But today she attached an addendum to her Apology:

"Well, at least you're not stupid!"

That's my mom! Always looking on the bright side of life! I'm adding that to my war chest of silver linings.

I had a migraine for two days earlier this week. Worked three hours on Monday and gave up. I feel your pain... I'm thinking of getting some sort of prescription pills, cause clearly excedrin and coffee only works if I sleep, in which case, I can't work. So. :( Hope you haven't gotten another one in the meantime.
