Revenge of the migraine

My migraine came back with a vengeance this morning. I don't know why but I only lasted an hour at work today. I felt awful and couldn't concentrate because of the pain. I waited until a few more people showed up to cover the phone lines and then left. I'm pretty sure I've used up all my sick days, so this will come out of my pay unless I use one of my vacation days. I'd rather not do that since I might actually want to go somewhere later in the year and need the days off. I can probably handle a day less pay though. C'est la vie.

The migraine SEEMS to be a bit better now but I thought it was gone last night and it came back, so I'm just going to have to wait and see what happens tomorrow. *sigh* It wouldn't be so bad if the migraines weren't so incapacitating but when I get them, I'm pretty much useless. I can sleep or watch TV but that's about it.

I'm trying to make sure that I'm drinking lots of water. I can't help but wonder if part of this might have been mild dehydration, though I'd been trying to keep my fluids up all along. It's hard to tell for sure but I suppose every little bit helps.

I really hope that I'm feeling better tomorrow. I've had just about enough pain for one lifetime.
