I get migraines. They started in the early’90s. A really sharp pain over my right eye. It starts out as a dull ache and then progresses to a sharp stabbing pain. If it gets really bad, I get a really queasy.
They were controlled with meds for years . . . I’ve been off the meds for a couple of years now. I get them when it’s hot and very humid in the summer or when there’s a lot of stress in my life. But the funny thing about the stress headaches is that I get them AFTER I’ve dealt with the stressful situation.
Considering the path my life has taken lately, I’ve been expecting a migraine (or two, or three!). Since I haven’t had one, I’ve been thinking that I’ve either dealt with the situations very well and haven’t been stressed or that I’m not done dealing with the situation.
I got my answer this morning.
I woke up with a migraine. Yea, this sucks.
But the good news is . . . I think this means I’ve finally dealt with the stress!!
