The Story of Mike, My Fight For Lilly & My Defective Mind.
Today I woke up at 10 till 5 in the morning. I woke up to the feeling of someone stabbing me in the back of my head, or at least it felt like somebody was. At that point I set up in bed and I open my eyes.
All of a sudden my eyes had shooting pains like I was looking at the sun. The light in the room hurt at which point my head caught up and blistering sharp but yet dull somehow pains shot from the back of my skull to my eyeballs. All I could do was close my eyes to stop the pain and hold the back of my head while tears came out.
It was at this second I realized I was having a migraine, I haven’t had one for like 3 months. So once the pain got less painful I while keeping my eyes closed felt my way to my desk in my office where my medication is.
The doctor said at times that I’m having migraines to take one pill which is 100 mg and wait about 2 hours. So after I took the pill I decided I was going to lay back down and try to sleep. Which didn’t work so well I don’t remember drifting off to sleep I remember laying there rocking back and forth wishing the pain would stop. And then I woke up and the pain was still there so I did what the doctor told me because two hours had passed and I took two more pills and I took 3 3 Tylenol with it I felt my way to the kitchen and I got a cool rag. Then I went back to bed with the same thing happening again. I laid there rocking back and forth with a wet cold washcloth on my head just wishing the pain away. At this time I was still having a sharp pains in the my eyes and the sharp pains that said started the kind of go down your neck and my head was throbbing from a dull pain to a sharp pain back to a dull pain.
But when I woke up for the most part it was gone and I thank God for that.
I was up for about 60 minutes and that’s how I’m I ate some chicken patties and took my normal meds before I got called for a run to Monroeville. Which I’m currently doing now and I’m writing this post Thea text-to-speech because I noticed for the first time I wasn’t sad. I wasn’t numb.
I’m not quite sure what I am right now but I know in the past when a migraine like this what happened it would ruin my whole day. I would feel pain, I was so mad, I would be aggravated and just unpleasant. Why you may ask because these migraines are the results of a side effect of the medication that I no longer take.
But this afternoon I feel okay. I’m not mad but I’m not happy. But I do feel something and I’m not quite sure what it is which is my mind normal operating feeling.
