    • I get migraines not only once a month, but just randomly. Can I say that they TOTALLY SUCK??? I’ve had one for 18 hours now and I’m starting to lose my patience with the world. I want to scream....but no, that will hurt. I want to cry...but no, that will make it worse. My usual quick fix of Excedrin Migraine isn’t touching this beauty...so I have to tough it out.  

      The kids have no school today due to a holiday....thank goodness they are old enough to understand Mom when she’s in pain.

      Go away, migraine....you‘re the basis for my bitchin’ today

        • I suffered with migraines for years (especially during stressful times)... about 2 1/2 years ago I went to the doctor and he put me on Topomax for about 4 months... once daily.  I have not had a migraine in years.  You might want to talk to your M.D.

          Hope you feel better girl!

        • I feel your pain! I had one Saturday that hit me while I was at work. I did not take my 800 mg of Advil at the first sign of it like I need to so it was full blown! I don’t know how I drove home. Take care of yourself & I hope it ends soon!

        • I usually get them with the monthly crankiness...this one was just out of the blue. It’s still going strong even after I broke down and took the meds. I think I took them too late.  

          I’ll survive...but it just really makes the day tough. I don’t function well with a headache. I’ll take my painful knee over this ANY DAY!

        • I am doing so with one eye open! :) So excuse my type-os.  Yana is so fabulous for putting up this site and I love helping as a moderator. If that means moderating with a migraine, so be it. I love it here....so, it’s good therapy.

          I’m close to running out for a Pepsi.........
