I have been through natural childbirth. I've broken a bone. I've had appendicitis and an appendectomy. I would consider myself pretty well acquainted with pain. But last night I had one of my first migraines. Let me tell you, it ranks up there. The sensitivity to light, the inability to lay down (for some reason, it's a hundred times worse if I rest my head), and the awful nausea that sweeps over again and again. Leading finally to, well, you know. Although I will say, I've found the kitchen sink to be a much better place to throw up than the toilet. I know it sounds gross, but hear me here. No disgusting bathroom odors to inhale (my bathroom is freshly clean, but with the migraine I was sooo sensitive to smells that I was still repulsed) and the sink is at waist level...no crouching down. And if you have a sprayer and a garbage disposal...alright, too much information, huh?
Anyway, I have an awesome family. Dan was sitting up with me until I told him "I know, sickness and health and all that, but you really don't have to watch me throw up" :). My exhausted husband finally went to sleep. And my mom is coming today to pick up Maddy, saving her from a fate of PBS kids shows, since I am just whipped.
Let me know if you get migraines and what you do for them. Hopefully I won't be experiencing them on a regular schedule, but I'd like to be prepared next time!
