Migraines suck.

Just in case anyone was still wondering.

(At least imitrex gets it to a level where I can follow a podcast, or sometimes even Netflix -- nothing that requires concentration, but the new mst3k series is perfect. And I just watched the episode with NPH guest starring, whee.)

(...that was today. Yesterday I did the "derp I feel like crap and there's an icepick in my head and I'm super nauseous and photosensitive GEE WHAT COULD POSSIBLY BE HAPPENING maybw I'll just wait it out hm why is it getting worse" thing for a few hours, which meant that when I finally did take imitrex it didn't kick in for a while and i was still feeling like warmed-over death when I went to bed. This morning when I woke up to migraine symptoms I actually took med pretty much i,mediately, and it worked better. Whodathunkit.)

(Though I do have to lolwut at my mom, who responds to "i have a migraine" with about ten zillion questions including whether it was the first day (and mind you we'd talked the day before, and i mentioned the migraine the first time we talked yesterday; i don't know why she perpetually thjnks I'm not telling her things) or whether the imitrex worked or whatever. Luckily this was by email, not in person, so I didn't have to kill her, but sheesh -- I do not need an interrogation when my brain is approximating molten lava, tyvm.)

That reflexive thought, "wait! Another migraine? Better not take my abortive meds!"

WTF does this come from?

Well, my doc says limit use or even worse rebound will result. But honestly, why?

Oh hon I'm sorry. I have trouble processing that it's a migraine when it's a migraine, too.
