I barely slept last night. Around 3 pm the pain behind my eyes was constant. By the time I finally got up from bed at 6:30 am, for the umpteenth time, my teeth were aching so bad I could barely stand the pain of that, behind my eyes, and in my temples.
I took Portia out and put her directly back in her crate something which never happens. I took two extra strength sinus/allergy pills and went back to bed.
By 10 am nothing had dented the pain. Quite the contrary as a migraine had also set in with pain coming up between my shoulder blades reaching out through the back of my head. I was nauseous, weak and barely could stand the sound of my own breathing. It was a full blown debilitating migraine.
At 10:30 am I took migraine medication and went back to bed. Thank goodness Rob had been in and out between calls to look after the dogs.
By lunchtime I was ready to go to the Hospital, but put it off by trying more water, however I was far from dehydrated.
Around 2:30 pm I said to Rob I needed to go to the Hospital, however he had to go out for a length of time so I decided to try more medication. This time it was 1200 mg of ibuprofen and 2 Tylenol 2, and back to bed. I finally found an hour of sleep or so.
In between all this I had tried some toast, then soda crackers for the nausea. This back fired on me as all that did was create an attack of very extreme gas pains. Thank God I had bought some Tums this past Sunday. Between the Tums and a bottle of Coke that had been in the fridge I found some relief from the gas attack.
Finally by 4 pm the migraine "gave up the ghost", but not before it had "knocked the socks" off me.
Rob made us some Dinner of Homemade 9 Bean Soup and Grilled Cheese. That had been at 6 pm when I got out of bed. I am thankful he had not been out of town today or I would have had more of a time coping then I already had.

There was a bit of silver lining in my day beyond the pain ....
The blessing in this day was that this Migraine happened today, as I have myself otherwise committed the next two days, and I could not have possibly kept those engagements.
I did take time to go on my computer very briefly earlier today once to find out the results of the South Bruce Peninsula Election results from last night. I had to say I was only pleased with two of the persons who had been elected in for the next term. *Sad* to say, but that is the way the cookie crumbles.
On a lighter note, this Halloween do not forget to SHOP LOCAL ! as local small businesses are the backbone to our Communities.
I am tired and somewhat drained, so on that note I will call it a wrap until tomorrow, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
