I’m Not Cut Out For Bad Moods

Migraine Barbie has Snapped!

Sorry for the late joke this morning. I have an excuse.

All of that frowning over the weekend led to a migraine.  I was in bed by one in the afternoon yesterday, waking only for the occasional Migraleve and a bowl of soup from my beloved husband.  Not from him, you understand: he’s not some sort of walking chicken soup dispenser, à la hen-cow hybrid (saying cluck-moo, or coo for short. Or muck*).  He poured it from a can and warmed it in the microwave; but I appreciated the love with which he did it.

*Give me a break; I have a sore head.

I couldn’t face the computer long enough to schedule a joke.  If I can’t face the computer, you know I’m sick.  I couldn’t even face Downton Abbey.  The thought of Maltesers made me queasy.  Now do you believe me?

I wanted to try Big Al’s cure – take the tablets, then a shower, with the water spraying the face – but I couldn’t lift my head long enough to find the bathroom. Sorry, Al.  Next time, maybe.

This morning, the head is still aching, but functional.  Normal service will hopefully be resumed tomorrow.

I promise I’ll be in a good mood.  The headache says I’d better be, or else.


Re: Viv’s non-appearance to herself in the community board to the right.  

I’ve got nothing.  But I see you every day.


I’ve just checked: you’re not there.  I’m going back to bed.

    You’re a brave lassie to have posted at all. You’re getting way too many migraines: go see your dentist and ask him to check your bite – advice from the dentist in the family. If there’s eg a filling proud, that pushes your jaw cockeyed which in turn affects the something or other nerve. Simply grinding it down a bit can cure the problem.

    Get well soon Tilly, and if it persists, get some medical advice. Take care!!!

    Morning, Petal. Poor you.

    (I think that community board thingy is a changing thing… I wasn’t on it earlier, but am now, as Viv was briefly this morning. You probably have too many people on it for all to show at once.)

    Go to bed in a darkened room and forget about us for a few days. You have my sympathies, my mother was a martyr to Migraine.

    Whispers.. Get well soon 🙂


  6. Ron. September 24, 2012 at 10:44 #

    Even at less than 100%, you’re still one of the coolest, TB. feel better soon.


  7. jmgoyder September 24, 2012 at 11:13 #

    Ouch! I know what these are like – get better, laughing housewife!


  8. laurieanichols September 24, 2012 at 11:17 #

    Tilly feel better soon and Viv is right perhaps a visit to either a dentist or a doctor. Migraines might be a symptom of an underlying issue. Sending you positive healing thoughts!


  9. sharechair September 24, 2012 at 11:38 #

    So sorry you are not feeling well. Headaches are horrid. Be gentle with yourself, you can’t rush it.


  10. misswhiplash September 24, 2012 at 11:49 #

    Hello my little Chickadee..now that explains a lot…but had you not been moooo-dy in the first place you might not have had a migraine..which only goes to show that you must either be happy, or non-shall-ont..I am sure I spelt that wrong but you know what I mean.

    Somehow when you are not around , the sun disappears from the sky and black clouds loom over my well being..so in a round about way you are responsible if my day is good or bad….. so glad that you are feeling better…..I love having good days


  11. adinparadise September 24, 2012 at 11:59 #

    How awful, Tilly. Hope you’re feeling better soon. Maybe you need to get out and go to the seaside. 🙂


  12. Tinman September 24, 2012 at 12:13 #

    I hope you feel better soon, shares in Maltesers have apparently plummeted.

    Re the Viv thing, I was going to say that she is there, second down on the left, but just to check I turned your blog off and back on again (I learnt that from the IT Crowd) and she’s gone again.


  13. Tinman September 24, 2012 at 12:14 #

    And now we’re both back, in a totally different place. It’s like playing Where’s Wally.

    You poor dear. I had a whopper of a migraine last week and when you have them you just wish you would die (or everyone else would–it’s a toss up). Seriously, I hope you are feeling better and can get back to Downton Abbey and Maltesers soon.


  15. Elaine - I used to be indecisive September 24, 2012 at 13:22 #

    Poor you – migraines are dreadful – I speak from experience, although in the last few years I haven’t had quite so many, so perhaps it’s something you can grow out of? I hope you feel much better soon.

    Viv appears to me in the middle of row six.


  16. katharinetrauger September 24, 2012 at 13:29 #

    Oh, dearest! I suffered SO long from these. I know every “cure” on earth, some of which helped me. If you need more folk cures, just say. In the meantime, I’ll try to be very quiet so you can rest. 🙂


  17. Rorybore September 24, 2012 at 13:30 #

    I do feel your pain dear. We’ve had a cloudy and rainy weekend here….. but I knew that because my head forecasted it about 3 days prior. My head always knows when it’s going to run and sometimes likes to stick around to see the rain.
    I do hope you feel better soon. I generally follow the advice on the medicine bottle: Take 2……and keep away from children. 😉


  18. McGuffyAnn September 24, 2012 at 13:36 #

    Oh, Tilly! I am so sorry. I just got over the worst migraine I have had in over a year. I sympathize. Relax & rest. Feel better. Hug.


  19. Rutabaga the Mercenary Researcher September 24, 2012 at 13:41 #

    Ugh – migraines are the worst. Daily dose of Vit. B – makes a huge difference


  20. gigihawaii September 24, 2012 at 14:44 #

    My older daughter gets migraines, but I don’t, so she must have inherited the tendency from her father’s side of the family. She takes Ibuprofin (Advil, Motrin) and goes to bed in a darkened room. Next day, she is fine. Take care of yourself, Tilly. Aloha from Hawaii.

    I had bad migraines before I had a stroke. Have you seen a doctor? I still have the odd migraine, but it is not as bad now. Dianne


  22. Helen Cherry September 24, 2012 at 16:12 #

    I didn’t really mean to like it you understand just extending tea and sympathy though you are probably full of soup already 🙂


  23. Al September 24, 2012 at 16:43 #

    Of all people, I thought I’d be the last to say “like” about a migraine, but couldn’t think of a better way to commiserate. Have the hub carry you to the shower!


  24. slpmartin September 24, 2012 at 17:07 #

    Sorry to hear about you migraine…hope you are better soon…take good care.


  25. idiosyncratic eye September 24, 2012 at 17:50 #

    Hope you’re feeling better soon! 🙂


  26. robincoyle September 24, 2012 at 19:41 #

    This has been coming on for some days now. Sounds like you are almost on the other side of your migraine now. Feel better!


  27. terry1954 September 24, 2012 at 20:51 #

    hope you are feeling better by the time u read my comment!!!


  28. benzeknees September 24, 2012 at 22:35 #

    Feel better soon, dearie! Did you check out my posts today? You might at least get a chuckle & laughter (they say) is the best medicine.


  29. musings September 25, 2012 at 06:24 #

    I’m so sorry about your head ache, but I’m glad you’re starting to feel better. It’s nice to have a hubby who can warm a can of soup for you.


  30. viveka September 25, 2012 at 12:35 #

    Don’t envy …. if I have headache once every second year (maybe my head isn’t with me the rest of the time ?????!!!).. is that max and that’s more than enough for me. So you stay under the duvet … we will be here waiting.


  31. bluebee September 25, 2012 at 13:50 #

    Oh, poo – hope you feel better soon


  32. judithatwood September 26, 2012 at 03:13 #

    Nothing is sadder than a Malteser freak who doesn’t want Maltesers! I hope your migraine has resolved itself, so that all can once again be right with the world!


  33. Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife September 27, 2012 at 16:30 #

    Thank you, each and every one of you, for your good wishes. They make me feel better 🙂


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.
