My thoughts on life around me and trying to find the true me.

Migraines

on February 9, 2013

Since the rest of the Northeast is talking about Nemo (when did we start naming snow storms by the way?) I figured I would give the topic a rest and talk about something else.

First, I must apologize for ever thinking that a migraine was just a long-term headache or a headache where you just needed to be in a dark room for a little while. 

A migraine can be that and so much more.  I had my first ever migraine just recently and in fact, I still haven’t totally shed the damn thing.

I learned some things while enduring the hell that is a migraine.  I learned that your tolerance for yapping little dogs decreases.  I learned that the volume and pain from an MRI increases!  I also learned that ER’s can be pretty entertaining if you are placed in the hallway by the room where they put the crazy people.

The most important lesson I learned is that if you are given the choice to laugh about your situation or cry, choose to laugh.  Life is too short to sweat the small stuff.  If I am going to go tomorrow, I want to go laughing.  I don’t want the nurses glad I am gone.  My hospital roommate and I (technically my second roommate, I had the first evicted) had a great time because we had the same outlook.
