Today has just not gone like I thought it would.
First of all, it has been raining off & on all day. I didn't think that was in the forecast.
Second of all, one of my coworkers went home sick which in turn caused me to make several deliveries that I wouldn't normally be making & I was not planning on spending that much time away from my awesome new desk.
And the big kahuna of the unplanned is that I have had a migraine headache today. It's the weirdest thing because I haven't had one in years. In fact, it's been so long that I didn't recognize the symptoms at all until it was too late. I was getting ready to leave for my out of town delivery when I realized that my eyesight was monkeyed up. I was looking at Bob (one of my coworkers) & I couldn't see all of his face. Huh. Mild panic took up residence in the pit of my stomach. I rationalized that it was from looking at my computer screen since my desk changed & now the light was hitting it different, blah, blah, blah. Truth be told, for about 15 minutes I couldn't see much of anything. Then all of a sudden it was fine. I got in the car & called my mom & she convinced me it was probably a migraine starting up & that I should take some aspirin ASAP. Thankfully I had some with me so I took one. Man, then the headache set in. I have been squinting my eyes & furrowing my brow so much that most of my mascara is on my cheeks & I think I have a permanent wrinkle between my eyebrows.
A few hours later & I'm feeling much better. My migraines are bothersome but they have never been debilitating, thank God. The thing that bothers me most about today is that I have no idea what triggered the headache. Years ago when I got them more frequently they were always linked to some big emotional thing - something upsetting or even something really happy & exciting. Today has just been a regular day; nothing big has happened at all. Huh.
Do any of you suffer from migraines? What are your triggers?
