I have had 2 1/2 days without migraine pain since January 1st. So for 13 out of the past 15 days, this is what I look like…
I have showered 3 times in those 2 weeks, brushed my teeth a few time (brushing hair or teeth causes more pain than I am willing to allow on top of the migraine pain). I change my underwear if I remember and never wear a bra. This is my reality!!! And the reality for many others who suffer from Chronic Illness.
But today is our 16th Wedding Anniversary and I was having nothing to do with it, I am so over the pain. So I called my doctor and asked if I could take the migraine cocktail at home even though I have used the meds as much as I should this week. He gave me the go ahead. After about a half an hour the pain is much reduced and I am determined to enjoy our night.
Me after the migraine cocktail….
And so now we can go celebrate. Plus all my boys brought me home a new plant. It should be a good evening!!
