Like a Hamster Rolling Along

The time is moving slowly along.  My migraines suffer good and bad.  More often they feel like a hamster in a ball, spinning around inside but unable to break out (pain wise).  The prednisone is helping in that regard, but it will end in four days and then anything can happen.

So I wear my silly Mickey Mouse earrings today along with my Expect Miracles bracelet.  I hold on to optimism as this month advances and I, like my migraines and like my fluctuating moods, roll around in that hamster ball.  It’s like being in the world, but not wholly so. 

The other day I was choosing happiness, but yesterday I was weighted down with inexplicable sadness.  There was no explanation except for the prednisone.  It felt much like having a capsulized version of bi-polar disorder.  Moods up and down like a jagged coastline. 

Today I forced myself to go to the club and soak in the jacuzzi.  Fifteen minutes in there is more effective than ibuprofen and an all day heating pad.  It was good to get out, enjoy a bit of fresh air and rain drops. 

And so it goes.  I’m taking steps in this doctor prescribed journey.  I go forth as an unwilling participant, yet I’m open to whatever happens.  Maybe the hamster will finally go straight and with purpose and without much pain.  Expect Miracles.

Just trying to navigate a life circumvented by chronic migraines. Sometimes I write about managing with those, but at other times I am prone to deviate a bit.
