My Personal Hell
Migraines. I get them. In fact, I had one last night. Obviously chocolate is a trigger food for me. Also triggers: caffeine, stress, excess salt, dehydration and I also suspect some preservatives. For anyone who gets these massive headaches I don't even need to explain them to you, you are aware of just how bad they can be. For you lucky folks who don't get them, they are the worst feeling ever. EVER. I can feel mine start to come on at the base of my neck, then it quickly spreads to behind my eyes. That tells me to get ready. When I start to get sick to my stomach I know I am in for it. These are realatively new to me personally, although my dad suffered from them a lot when I was younger. So, after having had one yesterday, I get to walk around like a zombie. It just knocks me on my butt and makes it so hard to function. The worst part is the lingering headache that could turn into another migraine if I let things get out of control. Happy Monday, and here's to taking better care of ourselves this week!!
