Most of you who've known me for a while know I'm chronic and have been in remission with Topamax for a couple of years. BUT this past week I've had a seize of HAs that have been hell. Guess the demon just wanted me to know he hasn't gone away.
Usually when I get a breakthru HA, I come to the MB and see that I'm not as bad off as others, but this week I've had a hard time trying to find someone who I thought was worse off than me (ok, I was feeling sorry for myself!). I've worked all week (well I've been at the office anyhow)and I think everyone at my office was glad when Friday came.
The bad part of this whole week is that my secretary, who has been with me for two years, has never seen me when I was really bad thinks this week has been "awful". (Actually, I've been taking cafagot all week and had these under control except that I was bombed out most of the week at work.) She knows I have "headaches" but thinks her back pain is a lot worse. Go figure! One lady in the office tried to explain it to her, but didn't get anywhere. Thank goodness for Margi, Nancy, Bob P. and a few others who were as close as my e-mail to listen to my bitching all week. I'm just not one to suffer quietly. I HATE PAIN!
OK, I've felt sorry for myself now. I've had my shot of O2 this morning and some Excedrin and coffee (trying NOT to take the cafagot)and am down to a shadow, so that I can live with. Maybe Mr. Demon will stay at bay today and I can get something done. Just needed to blow up a little. Thanks for being here.
