Reading Understanding Migraines sums up how I felt yesterday: Some people feel irritable during migraine attacks and seek solitude, often in a darkened room. Following an attack, many people feel washed out and listless. They forgot to mention how I have to turn the air conditioning down so it’s really cold, and I must have an ice pack at the base of my neck. Sheets and a light blanket covering me, but nothing more. And they psycho cat (Murphy) had better leave me alone, but Mona knows that she should come curl up beside me to try to make me feel better. I swear she knows when I have a migraine, she walks across the bed as if she is tip-toeing… doesn’t want to disturb me but wants to come comfort me. Food doesn’t trigger my migraines, but I did have three other triggers for yesterday’s – psychological stress, fatigue or irregular sleep, and changes in weather. Know what? Migraines suck.
