I’ve been having low-grade headaches for the past couple of days. I’ve been waiting for the full-on migraine to come along, but so far it hasn’t made it’s appearance yet. I don’t have a headache now, but I am not 100% lucid and I’m fighting off fatigue. Sometimes I don’t know which is worse: a roaring migraine or this in-between state wherein you know you are about to get a big one. I spend a lot of time in this limbo state—fatigued, forgetful, with a foggy head, and a general feeling of not being completely there—and yet I’m still not used to it.
Times like these, I always turn to migraine.com to shed some light on my situation and find relief from my pain, or in this case, non-pain. I stumbled upon this article and could completely relate to it. This is exactly what I am going through. It’s good to know that I am not alone in this, but has someone found a way to skip this phase altogether?
Okay, I’m not usually this whiny when it comes to my headaches. I’ve been living with this for a while now and I can normally cope with my foggy senses and would not complain about it, but this week has been tough. I’ve been trying to draw and paint (I have a deadline!), but I just can’t focus. All I want is to go back to bed and have another go at a snooze. I’ve tried exercising, but I think I just added to the fatigue. I’ve been reading a lot just to see if I could sharpen my senses, but I’ve noticed that I have to go back to some paragraphs because the words didn’t register. Sigh. And I’ve been doing so well the past month, month and a half. Is it because I have been skipping my acupuncture sessions? Hmmm… maybe…
Again, I don’t know which is better: the migraine or limbo? At least with a migraine you can drink the magic pill of your choice (mine is Zomig) and—click!!!—the world is clear again, but in this in-between state, you have no choice but to wait it out and see what happens next. Maybe I really need to go back to my acupuncturist. Oh well. In the meantime, I really can’t do anything about it. I think I will—no, I choose—to breathe deeply through the fog and hug my cats. 🙂
