This is an angsty, whiny post. Keep this window open at your own peril!
This headache (or what may be a migraine without an aura) has been hanging around for 10 weeks. Tomorrow starts week 11. And I’m sick of it! I hate the fact that I have to take meds every day. I hate the fact that the migraine med makes me feel nauseous but isn’t enough to bang the pain on the head, I hate that fact that I generally sleep for 9 or 10 hours a night but I’m still tired and want a nap most days.
But what pisses me off the most is that I used to have a high pain tolerance.
I managed to look after Girl Child after a caesarean on just Panadeine Forte (Paracetamol and Codeine) as the pain buster ball delivering pain relief wasn’t turned on for 2 days. The thing was I thought I was just a wuss at the time. It was only when they went to take the pain relief out that they realised it wasn't on at all. Apparently I didn't complain enough to get them to check it out.
So here I am with a bloody headache that cuts through the migraine meds and the other stuff I take as well once again feeling like a loser. I should be strong enough to beat this. After all it’s only pain.
Okay, whine done. Tomorrow is another day.
