I went to bed at 9pm last night with a mild headache; I had gotten an email alert for migraine from Mediclim yesterday, but I thought if I went to bed early and slept off my headache I could avoid a migraine, but I woke up with one anyway around 1:30am. I took my pain pills that I don't usually take unless my regular ones are not working, and they made me nauseous, so about an hour later I had to get up and take my Compezine. It took a long to time to fall asleep.
My headache was mostly gone this morning, but I still felt kind of nauseous and shaky, so I did not go to church this morning.
I felt bad about that, not because I feel it's a duty or an obligation, but because it makes me feel good when I go, and I like the people there. It's not a "new found faith"; I've always been a Christian but stayed away from church since my late teens, because I wasn't happy with the church I grew up with, for reasons I don't have to the energy to explain right now. The church I belong to now is the one my parents joined years ago, and when my dad passed away in August, I was really impressed with the pastor who did the service, and the way the ladies that hosted the luncheon after the funeral really reached out to me and let me know they cared even though they didn't know me. The people there are very welcoming and friendly, not the type that go to church for a "fashion show" or just to be seen so that others think they are "good people". The worship services are kind of a casual style, which I like.
I also enjoy the services because on the weeks that I have chemo, Sunday is the only day I can get out and socialize a bit. Monday's are my grocery shopping days, my chemo is always on Tuesdays, and Wednesday through Friday, and sometimes Saturdays too, I'm kind of housebound because of the chemo side effects.
I had to take my nausea meds again this morning. Finally felt well enough around lunchtime to eat some rice and applesauce.
I also did a very gentle yoga workout, (my Peggy Cappy DVD), I felt it would be good for me to stretch a little and get rid of some tension. Other than that, I'm just staying in my pjs and having a "lazy day" today.
