There I was this noon, eating lunch with Husband, Daughter, Step-daughter and her Husband with casual conversation about yard sales (of which their are TONS today and SD/SSiL's moving plans (they are storing some things in our garage, which is why they were here), when suddenly the left side of my face and part of my left hand went numb ...one of my more annoying pre-migraine symptoms.... so I said something to the effect of  'oops, impending migraine, gonna go lie done for a bit' -- BUT that was NOT what came out of my mouth.....And I could tell that I was speaking garbledy..... tried again, same thing.....  Tried again, same thing.....

Thoughts running through my head -- Migraine.... oh SHIT, micro-stroke? ---Oddball Migraine symptom like that poor newscaster a couple of years ago? .....  low blood sugar episode?... so I stood up, took a Migraine Strength Excedrin, waved reassuringly to worried looking family, and went into the bedroom and lay down for a few minutes. ... tested my speech skills, determined that I was no longer Pentecostal (i.e. 'speaking in tongues'), and went back to kitchen & family, where I was able to clearly explain what I thought was happening. Since I recovered so quickly. I'm inclined to believe either the Oddball Migraine symptom or the Low  Blood Sugar theory.

Doing fine now, but like I said, unnerving.... When I take Daughter to see her Neurologist later this month for her annual check-up and prescription renewal, I will ask him if he will accept me as a patient too... MY migraines have been infrequent and pretty much under control for the past 20+ years, but this is a new twist and I would like a professional opinion.....

If it's not one thing, it's another..... sigh. And things were going so smoothly this year.....

Daughter has had migraines on an almost daily basis since the beginning of the school quarter, and as a result has missed a LOT of school. Her doctor keeps trying different medications, but none of them seem to have any lasting effect. Tomorrow she's having an EEG and MRI because Doctor wants to know what's happening inside her brain.

Husband is upset with Daughter because he thinks she's making herself sick to avoid school; he SAYS he's not upset with me, but I think he is, really, because I keep taking her to the doctors to try to get her some help, which I suppose makes me an 'enabler'.... So I'm mad at him, because even IF Daughter is subconsciously making herself sick, she's still suffering and I know from personal experience how bad migraines can be.

Now *I* feel sick....

I sat down this afternoon with a plan:

1)Write 1000 words, watch an episode of Shonen Onmyogji;

2)Write another 1000 words, read KyoKara Maoh manga;

3)Write another 1000 words, cook supper.



WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED:

Spent half an hour watching Master/The Doctor vids on YouTube;

Sliced an apple and made a cup of tea.

Wrote approx. 1000 words, give or take a few.

Looked at the clock, broke off the writing, assembled meatloaf and stuck it in the oven. Set timer for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Wrote almost another 1000 words. Timer went off. Applied barbecue sauce to top of meatloaf and stuck it back in the oven. Scrubbed and prepped sweet potatoes, put them in the microwave. Set green beans to cook on stove top.

Called husband and daughter to dinner at 6:05 pm. An hour and a half later, finally get back to the computer. Review last paragrach written, and head explodes.

Seriously. Migraine. oh joy.

Will go take Imetrex and lie down for a little while.
