I feel like the sky.
Seriously!!! Blehhhhh! I knew it was coming—-hormones + foul weather = migraines but I hadn’t had one yet and was crossing my fingers. And then it came….today at work, and I had to actually leave work to go pick up my prescription migraine meds from the drugstore because I needed to take a pill. I picked them up ($50 for 4 PILLS!!!), took one with lunch and proceeded on with my day. I hadn’t taken one of these pills (Imitrex) in quite some time and sort of “forgot” that when you take one, you really need to lay down. It made my migraine go away, yes, but I started to feel increasingly ill during the afternoon and STILL feel sick and it’s now 7:00!
Needless to say, I unfortunately missed my meeting at school as well as school itself and I’m here at my apartment with Dexter feeling sorry for ourselves and the poopy weather. I just can’t believe how sick these pills make you feel! I don’t even think it’s worth it that it makes the migraine go away because you have a whole new set of problems to deal with (dizziness, nausea, zero energy…).
Ok—I’m now off my soapbox and will proceed with food. Sorry guys! Just one of those days :(. When I finally made it home after being stuck in storm traffic for an hour (!!!!) the only thing that really sounded good to me for dinner was an omelet. I had a three egg white omelet with a slice of reduced fat cheddar cheese, a chobani yogurt with agave, a big pile of strawberries and kiwi and a morningstar farms sausage patty.
After my bath, I had half a toasted Ezekiel english muffin with a smear of almond butter and raspberry preserves. I’m sure I will be making some herbal tea in a bit as well!
I still don’t feel like myself at all and I’m very glad I made the decision not to go to school because standing over melting chocolate for five hours probably would have not been such a great idea. Hopefully I’m not actually getting sick and I just need to sleep off this ick!
I hate to end on such a “blah” note to here is my dose of positivity for the night: Did ANYONE watch the Today show this morning with the panda rescue in Beijing???!!! I guess after the massive earthquake in China tons of poor pandas were left homeless and injured. So, this incredible Chinese man thought up the idea of the panda sanctuary! He rescued pandas and has a group of volunteers, each who are assigned to two pandas that they care for specifically in the sanctuary. They nurse the pandas back to health and give them a safe space to run around, play and create baby pandas :). This makes me happy!!
Oh! And I had a dark chocolate truffle at work today (along with a small bite of this macadamia nut/butterscotch/oreo cookie concoction ) that the pastry chef made but I forgot my camera at home. It was yummy but didn’t help my head 🙁
