48 of 365: Migraine
I can't say it's the worst I've ever had, but it's probably the third biggest since I moved here in August. I was out and about by twenty past eight this morning to look after little Daisy. Her older brothers were dropped off at school and Daisy and I spent the morning together watching CBeebies, where I received a crash course in the characters of In the Night Garden. After Daisy's nap it was time to pick the boys up from school and I brought them back home to have their tea. I didn't get home until after 6 o'clock and realized soon after that a migraine was creeping up on me.
Matt was okay for me to stay behind while he went up to Em & Daz's for a bit since the best way for me to get rid of these is to be in a pitch black, cold room after doping myself up on Aleve or some other sort of Ibuprofen, etc. About 10 minutes after he left, he was back again. I was curious so I peeked out of the bedroom where I went to lie down, and here he made a stop to get me my caffeine fix!! I ran out of my soda and he surprised me by bringing me some right away rather than when he got back for the night. I know it sounds so silly, but it was really a sweet thing to do considering the headaches I get when I start to go through withdrawal.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
