Right now this is what I imagine to my brain to look like, all fired up and spreading pain, not just through my head. But also through the rest of my body, fibromyalgia flares. nausea, stomach cramps, light sensitivity, allodynia, aphasia, brain fog and the list goes on. Like I said they are sneaky!! The tummy troubles have been the worst, next to the head pain, I haven’t been able to eat more than a few bites of solid food in over two weeks. I can drink liquids, so I’m staying hydrated and drinking protein shakes, to add some nourishment. As no sustenance can only make the migraine process worse.
You probably thought I forgot all about you, but I haven’t. I spent nine days in hospital, for DHE, Thorazine and Magnesium infusions. I went in with a pain level of a nine and came home with a pain level of 4. This was quite disheartening for me, my base-line pain level has been two for many years. I will admit that I cried, when the realization hit me, and I never cry. My nurse was in the room at the time, she is very sweet and spunky! Tess(my nurse)told me “I can’t help with your pain, but I can give you a hug!” Which she did, a nice long one that made me feel so much better. Just knowing that someone cared! The hospital I go to have the best nurses bar none, it is also a teaching hospital. Everyone I come in contact with, has always been awesome and I’ve been going there for ten years. That’s quite an endorsement!
I have another blog cooking, just as soon as I feel a little better so I can do it and you, justice. I will write it, I don’t like putting out anything but my best, hopefully this blog was up to snuff! I love the verse below!
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
― Emily Dickinson
Live with hope,
