Migraine! Word of the Week
Not my favourite word, Migraine!
You may, or may not, have noticed that I've been a little quiet lately? That's because I've been suffering a cluster of migraines. First I was sick, then the first migraine struck, followed by just one day's grace before migiraine number two, which hung around unwelcome for a few days.
I've had migraines for many years and they have always been quite predictable and hormone related. Recently they have become a little more frequent and I'm working with my GP at getting them under control. Unfortunately, the pain relief I take usually leaves me 'out of action.' I've been having plenty of early nights, but not getting much sleep. Migraines are no fun. I can't drive, I can't use my laptop and usually my only way of keeping in touch is with very brief messages on my phone.
I won't let them get me down though. My biggest hope is that as they are hormone related then hopefully it won't be long before I'll be saying goodbye to them (and the pesky hormones!)
So, if you ever do notice that I've disappeared, then it's probably because I've been struck by another migraine. And if you are a sufferer too, then you have my greatest sympathy.
