Kneeling at the Porcelain God

Remember this? Well last night we had a replay. The headache started at the Obon Festival. It was just a nuisance so I ignored it. By the time we got home at 11 it was full-on mind-numbing, and by midnight was complete with body spasms.

I spent my night kneeling over the toilet jamming a toothbrush into the back of my throat trying to make myself throw up, which usually takes the sharp edges off enough to sleep. It didn't. So I slept on the bathroom floor with my head between the toilet and the tub - the porcelain was cool on my forehead and helped a little.

So, here I am. Watching crappy Sunday t.v. and surfing the web instead of going to church. I slept until 12:30 this afternoon, but I feel like I ran a marathon and I am in the middle of enjoying the post headache. Everyone call Mr. Eris and tell him I am excused from Family Home Evening tonight - I don't think I can handle the stress or the noisy nieces and nephews.

You have my sympathy, for I get Cluster Headaches now & then. Mine can be triggered by sulfites, used to preserve some foods. Back in 1989, I got them bad. At one point, they gave me Fiorinal, which has codeine, caffeine, phenobarbital, aspirin, and a few other things in it. Serious meds.

I'm so sorry! There is nothing worse than a migraine! I hope that you're feeling better soon

Sorry you weren't feeling well. We really enjoyed the evening, and Little Ms. Eris was adorable!

I had one friend talk about a "light show" from a migraine she recently had. :(
