Feline warning devices

This morning I was sitting on the couch watching the news when Twister came over, sat down, and just stared at me for a long, long time. I wasn’t eating, he wasn’t hungry, so I was not sure what he wanted from me. I took advantage of his stillness and took a quick pic of him. Here it is:

I posted it on Facebook and someone commented that her cats do that when she’s about to get a migraine or vertigo attack. Hmmmm… That got me thinking. I did get a headache about 15 minutes after I posted the pic. I’m still struggling with my migraine and today was especially tough. Looking back, Twister and Wednesday have been very clingy and watchful the past couple of days. They always go where I am, but this time I notice that they are less rowdy and are sweeter than usual. They just sit beside me and observe my every move. They don’t beg for food or ask for play time.

Maybe they can tell when something is wrong or something is about to happen. I heard that cats and dogs can sense when an earthquake is about to occur. Maybe it’s the same thing with illnesses. Hmmm… Worth researching.

Twister took a bathroom break and, as if on cue, Wednesday climbs the sofa and sits in front of me. Good to know I always have someone with me! πŸ™‚

Pleasant surprise

I had to go out today for a meeting and to attend our dance practice for our High School reunion. Migraine is at bay, for now. Dull headache is still there, but I feel more alert and a bit more like myself. πŸ™‚

I passed through Greenbelt 5 and dropped by Barba (at the Filipino Designers floor) and was pleasantly surprised to see that my Glamorpuss collection is still on display. Love it! πŸ™‚ Please check it out if you are in Manila.

Migraine

I hate not being able to post everyday, but I have been out of sorts this week. I’ve been suffering from a severe headache since last Sunday. I tried to work through it, took over the counter pain relievers, but they did not help. I finally went to my neurologist yesterday and he said that I had a nasty case of migraine. It has a fancy name, but, of course, I didn’t catch it. It’s the type that makes you stutter, forget things, make your knees weak, numb, and feel fatigued throughout the day. And those are just the “light” symptoms. Like I said, nasty.

So I’m back on steroids and other drugs. Sigh. I really must go back to yoga and Zen meditation. This is not funny anymore. Less stress, please!

I feel better already (guess the meds are working their magic), plus I feel proud that I was still able to make this despite the pain and fatigue. It’s a video teaser for my HS reunion. I didn’t do this alone, though. It takes a village to produce something like this: the logo creators, the designs that made Cecilia, the researchers, writers, people who suggested the app, technology!, and a cool and organized leader. Glad to be part of a great team! πŸ™‚

Alright. Tomorrow’s another day. Better hit the sack before my migraine decides to come back. πŸ™‚

Good night, world! πŸ™‚
