Just loving the hemiplegic migraine flare-ups going on right now… and especially loving the extra-excessive spasms and blackouts. Oh, yes… very fun… There’s nothing like coming round without a clue, and you’re somehow lying on the floor with someone trying to wake you up, and you don’t know how you got there, and you’ve just lost several hours to nothing.
Just a second ago, it seems you were just doing something vaguely normal, then suddently it’s many hours later and someone is truling to get you to come round, more akin to after surgery and you’re in Recovery than at home reading something or watching the TV.
Heaven knows where they’re suddently coming from and nothing is keeping them in check. The spasms are ridiculous and never seem to stop, squeezing, contorting, twisting, causing pain and writhing until (hopefully) they eventually get done with the torture.
Maybe it’s the weather…. Halfway up a mountain in soggy Snowdonia is just about one of the worst places to live with chronic illness. It’s April and yet apparently it’s officially colder than it was at Christmas. That whole “Global Warming” thing is definitely misplaced PR – over here it’s definitely “Global Freezing, Soggy, and Rainy”. There’s no “Global” in this “Warming”… The only warming seems to be in the Arctic, where the ice is melting, turning into cold rain, then being dragged over here and dumped right onto us. Yey.
This is also what happens when you’re allergic to meds and can’t take any… and there’s nothing you can do about it. It seems when the weather gets bad, this gets to stupid, and there’s nothing that can be done about it. Yey, again.
The neurologist at least sent a post-haste note in their letter to expedite access to Pain Management, to at least try and help, although lord knows what they can do without giving meds. On the bright side, at least the MRI was clean. And I checked… there was a brain. So there.
Being stuck in the house isn’t helping either, probably. But it’s just one of those circle things where you can’t win: Damned if you do and Damned if you don’t. Extra Yey.
Oh, and did I mention Yey…?
