Migrane, day 4

Mmmm - new definitions of pain. Actually, the headachefulness isn't that bad (what with being a mild migrane and all), but the constant dull ache is enough to wear down one's resolve after a few days.

I went with me mother and my two aunts to see the Impressionists at the Melbounre Gallery yesterday. It was truly fantastic (although there were far too many people there for my likes... especially the ones who thoguht they knew art, but didn't, and talked to eachother about texture and depth and imagery). I had never seen a Van Gogh up close and in the flesh (so to speak) before - let me just say that the blues in the "Starry Night" are never done justice in repoductions.

I'm not often impressed by artwork, particularly paintings. But there were a good few of those on display which left me awe-struck and breathless. If you get the chance, you should go and see it.

Work last night was very long, and very dull. A constant headache will do that for you.

And to all my friends out there who are having problems, my heart goes out to you. I may not be able to help, but that doesn't stop me from caring.

I had a quasi-migraine for a week, after which I went to see a doctor who told me a) I was a damn fool not to come in after 48 hours and b) to take 2 weeks off from uni and c) to get some new reading glasses. She also tapped on bits of me to make sure my brain wasn't leaking blood (ewww). Any of these sound appropriate?

Re: headaches
I've already been to a doctor, who at least confirmed that my brain was not exploding (which was my main concern after two days worth of headache). Other than that, there's not a whole lot I can do but stick it out and eat painkillers, near as I can figure.

what painkillers are you taking?
i find aspirin helps; i can take it if I feel a migraine coming on, and if I get in quick, I can avoid the whole dreadfull experience. nothing else makes a differance

hoping today wasn't migraine day 5 (the longest I've ever had is 3 days)

try to make sure you keep your fluids up - strongly recommend sipping gatorade, you don't want too much sugar or carbonated beverages, but I find that while migrainy, its easy to forget the whole eating and drinking thing, and you need to replace assorted minerals.

beyond that, napping in a cool, dark, quiet room helps too - I've picked up lying on the floor, possibly under furniture from my mum as a response to migraine.

hope you feel better soon
