Week's not gone the way I planned...
Wednesday, August 07, 2019
This week has not gone as I planned at all. I had a terrible night before Monday and ended up with barely any sleep. So I decided to take a nap that morning after the kids left for school and I was tired enough. I woke to my dog Hope putting her head on my head, something she normally does when I have a migraine, only I didn't have a migraine. She will normally sleep with me for 2 hours in the morning if I'm not feeling well, so I tried to get her off of me and go back to sleep. She was persistent and ended up with her whole body on top of me and her head still on my head. I finally took her outside, thinking maybe she needed to go, and put her in her kennel, so I could get some sleep. I woke a short while later with a blazing migraine. I had not taken my morning meds, and the new migraine meds that I take twice a day are all that keep me from having a migraine constantly. It is like I have a migraine barely held in check by these new meds, I can feel it just barely there, all the time. I felt awful when I realized that Hope had been alerting me to a migraine, and I had not paid her any attention, hadn't realized she was doing her job.
So, till today, everything has been on hold for me, because I've been in bed with a bad migraine.
I still plan on doing the Glute Challenge, we will just be behind. I'm going to do what I can tomorrow, without pushing too hard. The migraine is mostly gone, but a lot of the other side effects are lingering. I'm hoping to get up on time and not be so lethargic and be able to stay up, awake all day, but I will not push too hard and will take a short nap if needed. I'm really wanting to get into a routine and this week starting out as it has isn't helping.
But I'm not going to be negative, a few hard days is not going to keep me down! I'm going to do what I can, as I'm able. The thing with living with chronic illness is to not let the hard days get you down and to take full advantage of the good days. I intend to do just that.
Hope you have a good hump day!
