The migraines still rain down regularly and yet I do find that positive thinking helps soothe them from erupting into something more. I totally went the other way a couple weeks ago and the fallout of stress, anxiety and bad ensuing migraines is all on me. It’s my fault to have let the actions of another person take over my emotions. I had other options, such as hiding in headphones or taking a long walk, or bucking up the nerve to take the pick-up someplace alone.
Why I’m nervous about driving my husband’s truck, I have no idea. I’ve driven fifteen-passenger vans long distances before as well as a mini bus. Both were loaded with people who had cognitive disabilities and silly staff people. Driving my husband’s truck is just one of those trepidations I’ve talked myself into. In general, I don’t like driving other people’s vehicles, husband’s included. But if I want to have a method of escaping, I’m just going to have to get over the fear.
Migraines always butt in during stressful times, and lately I’ve found they also enjoy crashing the party when I’m not feeling well. So when I developed an infection on Friday, by Saturday, migraine came on in KO fashion and trumped the infection. I spent most of the day in bed yesterday and probably could have today as well if not for having things to get done. Migraine has still been hanging around like a pesky varmint, but meds are waylaying it.
I can endure and soldier on. I just need to deal with things better. I can do it, it just takes time, and unfortunately practice that I’d rather not have.
