it's baaaack!

I think I was giving my new medicine too much credit.  I went 3 months (that's a long time) without a BAD migraine.  Woo Hoo!  I mean, I'd had a few headaches, a little arm numbness here and there, maybe some fuzzy vision, but no all-day migraine.

Until yesterday.

My alarm went off at 7:30 am, and I looked around the room, noticing a few fuzzy lines.  I just assumed I was halfway asleep still, and it couldn't possibly be an "aura."  I put my glasses on and tried again.  Doggonit.  Migraine.  I took my meds and laid back down, called my nurse at work, and planned to go in at lunch time.  My left arm went numb a few minutes later.  

Without giving too many details, I was unable to keep anything down all day.  I was finally able to sip on Gatorade by about 1 pm.  Caleb brought me lunch and tried to make me eat.  It ended up being an afternoon snack by the time I felt okay.  He was a great murse ; )

Oh, well.  I guess I can handle a migraine if I have to, but I sure do hope my preventative medication gets back to doing her job!  I hope somebody finds a cure one day.  I'd be willing to put a little money into their research...  : )

Hey Kathryn! I was looking through your blog and we must have a mutual friend...Britney! My best friend Meredith went to PC, too and is going to be in that same wedding! What a small world, besides the fact that we both live in Spartanburg!
