Wednesday's Post on Thursday

Unfortunately, I am a migraine sufferer. Being so, it interrupts some of my best laid plans.
So, the post scheduled for Wednesday, How to Make a Zippered, Corded Pillow Like a Pro
will be posted sometime on Thursday. I have a wee bit of editing to do first, and even this little bit of typing is causing my head to throb an my eyes to hurt. Those of you who have them know what I mean. This ain't no girly headache my friend.

I have been in bed for a day and a half, and woke up this morning with the worst migraine I've had in a long time, complete with dizziness, vomiting, and throbbing in my eyes, face, and neck.
I did force myself to get out of bed and make my way to the doctor around 5:00.
The forceful throbbing -you know, the kind that makes you want to cry like a 2 year old - is finally gone thanks to said doctor, but I'm still in pain. I would give myself a shot but hubby is out of town, and those things are scary to do when you're alone. I've lost feeling in my legs before from one, so I've learned not to do that when I'm home by myself.

Just wanted you all to know that I didn't forget, I just can't see very well when my eyes are burning and pounding and they can't tolerate light, and any amount of concentration when you have a migrane isn't fruitful.

Thanks for understanding. I'll be back tomorrow.


  1. Oh Polly! I hope this thing goes away fast already! xoxo Kolein

    ps- I'm praying right now!

  2. I hope you feel better in the morning! I think I had a migraine once a long time ago, and it was awful.

  3. Hi Polly,
    I'm so sorry to hear about your migraine. I know the pain you are experiencing and I really hope you are able to get some relief soon. Do you use Imitrex injectable?
    Get the rest you need and take care of yourself. I'll check in on you tomorrow.

  4. Polly, I am so sorry you are not feeling well. My son also suffers from migranes and it just puts his life on hold. Get well soon.

  5. Sorry to hear Polly. Here's hoping tomorrow is a much better day.


  6. Polly, I am so sorry to read you are suffering with a migraine today. I have had my first migraine at 7 years old 42 years ago. Until I hit menopause mine were completely controlled by avoiding certain foods. It was a true life saver. If you or anyone else are interested in the diet just drop me an e-mail and I'll type it up for you. It is not complex, nothing like gluten-free diets. Now my migraines are triggered by low estrogen levels and are nothing like what I had before and the only thing that helps them in 600 mg Advil, 12 oz of Dr.Pepper and HeadOn which is a homeopathic gel like a giant chapstick that you rub on your forehead. Feel better soon.

  7. Hope this passes quickly. I too am a migraine sufferer and it sucks. Just recently I had one last on and off for three weeks!!! Argh!!
    Rest and ice packs and drugs!

  8. Feel better, Polly! I don't suffer these myself, but I know they can be horrible and incapacitating.

  9. Polly,
    Please feel better soon. Take good care of yourself.

  10. I get a migraine about once or twice a year, so you have my deepest sympathy. I am looking forward to your tutorial once you are feeling better. Take care, sweetie.

  11. I'm so sorry Polly, hope you feel better soon...

  12. I, too, have been blessed with migraines. Sleep and feel better soon!

  13. So sorry to hear about your migraines, Polly. Take care of yourself and we will all be here when you feel like doing your post. Health comes first. Feel better soon.

  14. Polly, so sorry that you were feeling so bad. I've been there, so I know how you feel. I'm lucky not to suffer as much any more. Take care of yourself.
