I had every ingredient for a migraine yesterday (not enough sleep, faster run, full work day) and yep, by 6 pm my head was pounding.
Currently I get 3-4 migraines/month. Luckily, the prescription medication I use works each time; the only side effects are some nausea (though not sure if that’s the med or the migraine) + fatigue. It is always harder to wake up the morning after a migraine — med or not — and today was no exception.
I still hate these migraines and wish they would leave me alone but I guess this is the steady state I have reached. (I do think my hormonal birth control could be related but I don’t have other good options right now and also, I do not want PMDD back in my life so . . . here we are).
(Things I’ve tried: Magnesium, Migrelief supplements, electrolytes, increased hydration. None have worked and some have had intolerable side effects. Not saying they wouldn’t work for others, but just in case anyone was about to suggest them!)
Some more positive things:
I wanted to mention this month’s Patreon session — the topic is Tough Parenting Moments, and let’s just say I did NOT have any trouble brainstorming a list! Laura and I will be going through different scenarios and there will be group input on what has worked (plus a lot of group commiseration, I’m sure – as we realize certain struggles are so common). It’s this Thursday at 12 pm Eastern and it’s definitely not to late to join our group.
(As an aside, in addition to our monthly live sessions, we’ve had a lot of action/fun participation in our message board style threads — it would be a great social media alternative for anyone looking for something more finite and personal than the vast FB/IG/tiktok landscapes).
