Pardon My Absence

Last week was a rough week. I have been having bad, ongoing headaches. I was amazed I was even able to make it through the week. The headaches have been almost non-stop for almost two weeks now. I'm attributing it to a new medication that is supposed to help with the ringing in my ears. I'm off of the medication now, so we'll see if it makes a difference. This weekend the headaches kicked into full gear and I was wholly miserable. At church on Sunday I managed to make it through the first two hours alright, but when Sacrament meeting started, the combo of the microphone, the organ and the horrible lights just made me have to leave. Immediately. The headache had morphed into a migraine. Now I have had exactly one migraine in my life. It was the kind to make you ask for your life to be mercifully ended quickly. This one was not as bad. Not even close to what my dear friend Prone deals with either. Still bad though. I spent most of Sunday in my bedroom with the drapes drawn and the lights off. So I beg your mercy and hope you haven't given up on me.

Yikes- a week of headaches, sounds like pure misery. I hope they go away, and please let me know if you need anything- I could always take your girls for a bit while you rest.

I hope you're feeling better. It was nice to see you for two seconds anyway. And hopefully being pampered next week will help. And let's face it, we all know going to Chocolati will help also :)

You poor girl. I was wondering where you went. Geoff took the girls to the bathroom, as did the Cook family, and all of a sudden I was the only person, within our three rows of X chromosomes, sitting. So sorry you are still struggling; I don't know how you feel, but I know what it is to struggle with this. It's some strange mind game that will eventually make you stronger...that is the hope.
I hope you'll still be able to come on Thursday. I know it will bring some peace.

I feel your pain ... no pun intended!

And I second Calley's idea about the hot cocoa. Right now I hope you are relaxing at your mom's house.
