Is It Monday?

I’m sorry I didn’t get to your blogs yesterday; even with the decorating I expected to be able to read them before bed.

The day turned out to be rather full:

  • Morning: church
  • Afternoon: wallpaper
  • Late Afternoon: migraine

That caught me by surprise, and was most inconvenient.  I was in bed before seven last night, having taken two Migraleve (the wonder pill!) and I slept until seven this morning.

The migraine has been reduced to a dull ache to match the aching back from being in bed so long; but I’m rather foggy this morning.  I wrote a one-minute piku about migraines for my other blog, and realised after I’d published it that I’d made a new page, not a new post.

For a while, I thought today was Tuesday.  Just going to feed the dog.  Dogs.  It’s not raining, anyway.


Postscript: I previewed this one to make sure I’d used ‘Add a new post’ and not ‘Add a new page’ this time.  I had used the correct wink/lidget thing…in my other blog.  Had to c+p it over here.

I’d better not comment anywhere until the fog clears; who knows what offence I might accidentally cause?

    Sympathies from a sufferer, though generally quite rarely. Hope the fog clears soon. Do you get a cluster of headaches after a migraine, or do they clear up properly?

      TBH, I don’t know. My migraines are intermittent and it is usually months between them. I did wake up with a small headache but it had gone by ten. It’s aching a little now but that’s tiredness from my busy day.

      I do. Get the cluster headaches, I mean. Doc has just given me a whole heap of medication for it.

      Tilly get well soon – despite your migraine your posts keep us all entertained, as usual.

        Poor Sarah. 😦 I had a cluster of migraines once, which is when the doc gave me the Migraleve. Then I didn’t have one for twelve months, so never touched the packet. I’ve been glad to have them in for the last couple of migraines.

        Hope your medication helps you.

    Take it easy gal! I do hope that you will soon feel better!

    lots of love P

    Poor Tilly. If it’s any comfort, I grew out of migraines with the arrival of the menopause.


    • Tilly Bud July 25, 2011 at 21:12 #

      No comfort at all: I think mine are caused by the menopause 🙂

    I also ‘lost’ Sunday, slept through most of it. Happy week to you, Tilly.


    • Tilly Bud July 25, 2011 at 21:13 #

      Poor Cindy; you’ve had a hard time lately. Hope you feel better soon.

    Get some rest… We want you coherent and rested… 🙂

    Migraines will cause you to do any number of odd things. Sorry you have them. I have them too. Bummer.

    Migraines scare me. I only get them when I’m pregnant. The stupid thing is that I avoid bright lights to prevent a migraine, because that would mean I was pregnant …

    Sorry about your migraine….would make reading less pleasant…take care.

    Next time, instead of Migraleve, try putting a baby alligator on your head. It would be a great pain reliever, plus, once it falls off after you went to bed, it would certainly get you out of bed a lot earlier in the morning (hence no backache!). You might still have some of the headache, but no fog, and there would be a couple of alligator nips to take your mind off your head.


    • Tilly Bud July 25, 2011 at 21:17 #

      Paula, someone’s messing with your medication again 🙂


      • Paula Tohline Calhoun July 25, 2011 at 21:25 #

        Oh, sorry! I meant to say a baby CROCODILE – after all the cartoon was Egyptian, right?

        Think I’ll go take another one of those pills the Doc just prescribed.


        • Tilly Bud July 25, 2011 at 21:30 #

          Yes, but that’s a papyrus on his head 🙂


      • Pseu July 25, 2011 at 21:50 #

        It does look like a croc, ackersahlly….


        • Tilly Bud July 25, 2011 at 21:53 #

          I have it on good authority that it’s a papyrus (hover over it with your mouse). Also an Egyptian cure for migraine. I tried putting the Guardian on my head but that just made my migraine worse.

    Migraines are awful. I have never had one, but my older daughter used to suffer from them at least once a month. Hope you feel better soon.


    • Tilly Bud July 25, 2011 at 21:18 #

      Thanks Gigi. Hope your daughter doesn’t have them any more.

    I have been blessed because I probably don’t average a headache a year, and I’ve never had a migraine. Two wonderful ladies I used to work with would get them, and their agony was apparent. The eye color of one of them would actually change–I didn’t think that was even possible. If it helps, I once heard that the smell of green apples would stop migraines. God bless.


    • Tilly Bud July 25, 2011 at 23:16 #

      That’s interesting, Mike. I’ll try that next time.

    Migraines are the worst.


    • Tilly Bud July 27, 2011 at 09:23 #

      They suck. Glad I don’t get them too often; I pity those who do.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
