Grinding to a halt

Thursday, January 26, 2012

This week. Definitely.
Due to too much time on the computer working on job applications, etc. I seemed to be overstressed, had a meltdown, and there just didn't seem to be enough time for anything, and last Sunday I stopped my 16 day streak of minding my food etc. I did get back in and mark my water, and fruits/veggies. Need to do more.
When I left yesterday's volunteering at library one, I could feel a headache coming on, and I do not get them often. Definitely of migraine proportions, something I don't get too often. Since I was going to PT, I stopped to get some food - a small plain burger with mustard and a strawberry banana smoothie from the golden A. I really do not frequent the place but knew I needed nutrition, and wasn't sure if the headache was due to that. It helped a little, but not really enough. I got through my last day at PT, with a list of exercises and equipment I can use when the gym membership kicks in. I sent the list and info to my nurse advocate, along with the prices etc. for the gym, that is about a mile from home. I figured that would be the best bet. Close, not a long drive.
My head was blasting by the time I got home. So, I wasn't sure if it is sinus related, because it felt like a cross between sinus and stress, so I did the medicine routine given to me by my allergist, it helped a little. I spent barely anytime online. Even watched tv in the dark and napped in between. Even going to bed was rough because my eyes hurt so bad. Today it was a little less, and a bit better than that right now, but I know it is still underlying. I napped, rested, did nothing but that, and drinking hot tea, fluids, water, and sleeping some more.
My neck is feeling it a lot too - that is what makes me wonder about the stress, but my sinuses are draining too, and that always made my neck and shoulders hurt. So, I am going to just continue to take it easy tonight.
I had to call off volunteer cataloging today, bummer. I hated to do that, but I did not feel up to driving, or sitting in front of a computer monitor. Grrr. I hate uncooperative bodies. At least my brain cooperates enough to tell it to cool it, and rest.
Night all. Hope to sleep better tonight, and feel better tomorrow.

    So glad you were able to get through your last PT with future exercises before that nasty migraine really got going. When you mention pain in the eyes, my first though was I hope its not shingles :( Mom had started feeling the symptoms, but as she never gets headache, I told her to see the Dr. right away and they caught it in time before it got much worse, although she did suffer headaches for a year afterwards, but only had a mild break out in her scalp..
    Its good you are taking care of yourself and not worrying about the volunteering.

    DEBORAH, I frequent the Golden Arches and when i am there I have their oatmeal without the brown sugar. DH loves the brown sugar his sweet tooth is sweeter than mine,
    My best lunch is. A side salad and I use Newman's Own Vinaigrette dressing it is made for the golden arches i love it and I use just half of it- Cost $1.00. You can buy a Mcdouble. I ask for NO mayo, no bun and it goes in a little box with more lettuce.2 BURGHER Patties PICKLE and cheese if you want the processed cheese. I put that on my salad and it is good to go, add senior coffee and it usually is around $3.00. I love it. Right now the Mcchicken is good but it is breaded and I add that to the salad once in a while. I have and Spark has almost all of the McDonald stuff in the tracker. On the website you can build your lunches etc and the calories are there with ability to remove bun add ketchup whatever. emoticon emoticon

    It sounds like a combination of stress and sinusitis, if you can you may want to be checked for that. Your sinus could get infected and that would be even worse. I hate those migraines! The worst I had felt like someone was reaching in the top of my head and scrambling my brains. Sorry for the graphics, but that's what it felt like.
    I sure hope you feel better soon. Don't try to exercise too much with that, use a cold cloth on your eyes when you're resting and a warm one on your sinus area on your upper cheeks, that helps me. HUGS!
