Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses, and all the king's men,
Couldn't put Humpty together again.
Yesterday I woke up to the worst migraine I've ever experienced. I thought the one I had a few months ago was BAD...this didn't even come close! I thought I was going to die. I crawled around the house all morning, I managed to change two diapers...and then drive over to Erika's house so she could take care of me. (I had to pull over in the middle of the road to barf...THAT'S how bad it was!) At one point, as my head was hanging over Erika's cushy toilet seat, I thought to myself...child labor? Bring it on! Migraines? Not a chance in HELL!
Under the direction of my doctor (aka my dad), I went to the E.R. for the full workup. We knew the results would come back "migraine" because it's hereditary, but just to be on the safe side, it had to be done. Besides, if I didn't get something for nausea and pain soon, I was sure to die. I waited in the E.R. for three and a half hours, but when the nurse finally came in with my drugs...it was all worth it! Her name was Ms. Virginia.
And I just want to take a moment to say "I heart you, Ms. Virginia! I really, really do!"
And to the social worker who felt my pain (a fellow migraine sufferer), thank you for getting me a blanket, turning out the lights, and keeping my hallway quiet! I heart you too!
As you can clearly tell...I was feeling MUCH better.
p.s. Erika, Dr. Dad, and my dear sweet husband, thanks for hanging in there with me. I know I make an awful patient, and that I am incredibly hard to deal with when I'm in pain, and that I get overly anxious when I feel that it's getting out of control, and well, I'm just one big baby!! Thank you for knowing what to do, how to do it, and what to say. I love you all SO VERY MUCH.
