Four days out of five. That might be a new migraine record for me. I don't know how Tuesday (Wednesday?) managed to be pain-free but the rest of the week has made up for it.
The problem with migraines is that it makes doing things with your head both easier and harder at the same time. For example - your eyes detect every hint of light and it hurts. All sounds are super loud and they hurt. The pleasant smell of a flower fills your nose until you feel like your entire world is overrun by this smell and it HURTS.
And let's not talk about thinking. It seems like the human brain should be able to make connections regardless of headaches. Headaches are physical, right? How can thinking hurt?
Trust me, it can. It can hurt a lot. And there's a definite difference between the pain felt when I stare at the wall versus the pain felt when I try to think.
All of this is quite inconvenient when you're trying to work and your work involves seeing and thinking. Not so much smelling or hearing but those things can make the others even worse.
But the good news is that FINALLY the pain seems to have lifted. I can think again! I can smell and see and hear at appropriate levels!
Now let's just hope it stays that way...
