Headache Friday.

You know it's going to be one of those days when you wake up and know "the migraine headache" is coming. Yesterday was that day.

(This picture just makes me happy)

I thought the migraine was coming, but I put off taking the Excedrin Migraine until I was sure. The headache hadn't fully arrived yet, but I knew it was trying to. Finally, I took the Excedrin Migraine and I felt a little bit better after an about an hour. Honestly, I thought ... wow this was an easy one. But I was wrong.

Even though the actual headache goes away. The nausea stays with me. And it hit me full on yesterday about 10 am. I did not feel good. I have a 3-year-old to mommy and there was absolutely no way on earth that Mike could be home from work. We made it work ... I layed down on the couch ... Griffin watched HI-5 and Sesame Street. After feeding him lunch, I did get him to take a nap until about 2:30. I napped too. I felt alot better after getting up. I could finally eat something. So I chose a pack of those little orange crackers with peanut butter in them. They were like a miracle drug because after eating them I was feeling 100% better.

I wish these migraines would just go away. It's days like this that I really miss having family around. Someone that I can call and just say "I need your help".

Since we had been inside all day long, I decided to drive uptown to get us some dinner from a drive-thru. Instead, I called
Haywood's Grill to see if they had any of their fabulous carrot cake. And they did! Haywood's Grill is this awesome little take-out place where you can get good home-cooked food. Yesterday I chose their BBQ Chicken, Baked Macaroni and Cheese, cabbage and cornbread. Yum ... it was delicious! Griffin and I shared the meal and we couldn't even eat all of it. If you are ever in our area, you MUST get take-out from Haywood's ... and if they happen to have carrot cake on that day ... well, consider yourself lucky and have a piece!

After dinner, we finally went outside. We took a walk down the road and saw Carol & Warren. Carol went for a little walk with us, as Warren was tilling the yard to plant tomatos.

Even though the day started off a bit rough ... we ended up having a good day.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Sorry for your Headache's. I get them also. Mine are caused by different things. They are the worst. I wish they had a sure fire cure. Oh Well!! I just try to prevent.

I used to get those, for some reason (lucky) they went away and have not suffered one in years...knock on wood.
I do know that you should take any pain medication when the pain first starts. If you wait till you are in severe pain it won't work as well. If the crackers with peanutbutter helped, maybe it was the protien? Just a thought. Glad you're feeling better.

I used to have those headaches when I was younger but as I go through the change I haven't had them. I wish we were closer, too, so we could give you a helping hand. Glad you got to feeling better.
