FINALLY! I didn’t need to take any pain medication today! After Thursday’s scary worst-of-my-life migraine, I’ve been heavily medicated to try to break this streak of unrelenting pain. Today was the day, hooray!
Tomorrow I go back to the doctor for another ER follow-up visit. I’m not sure if the rest of my blood test results will be ready yet. I don’t know if I should cross my fingers for normal test results, or for test results that provide some explanation for my pain. *sigh* I will try to think positively and hope that nothing is wrong… except for Migraine disease.
I hope my employers understand that Migraine is a disease. It’s not just a headache. I am not sick with some kind of illness which requires a “doctor’s note.” It’s a disease. Not only do I experience excruciating headaches, but many other neurological symptoms. Migraine is a disability, and it’s amazing that I made it this far at my job with the pain of migraines. I haven’t been to work in over a week, and I’ve been having nightmarish dreams about going back. I’m nervous. *fingers crossed*
Today brought me a little bit of hope. Hope for more better days. And reading other blogs has been helping me too, because I don’t feel so alone.
