Headaches suck, showers are awesome @ 08:29 am

Yesterday morning, I got up, and got ready to take on my saturday.  Had planned to do some work, but didn't have a real plan as to what I would do but I had planned to be productive.  Then, I got my headache, a migraine.  They really are debillitating, and though this one didn't have me throwing up continuously, I figured that after taking my injectable Imatrex, and that not working, that it was time for me to visit the ER.  Its really great to have friends, and even better when they don't kill you for waking them up :).  Knowing [Bad username: :sunnyblue"] basically lives in the evenings and night times, I hesistated to call her but when both of my other friends were travelling out of town, conveniently at the moment that I needed to get the hell to the ER, I had no choice.  It was great to have sunnyblue around, mostly so I could keep my mind off of my head and stomach.  I ended up seeing the same doctor I saw the last time Ihad this happen, and I really liked her, she didn't ask ten billion questions, just looed at my chart and said "I remember you from last time" and went to get my shot.  Apparently, some people come in every week with migraines, and the people who have migraines like mine which are cyclical and not often occurring, they remember.

I got my shot, and After picking up some tasty food at Taco Bell that I planned to eat for dinner, I came back here.  I pretty much slept straight from 4 pm to just before 7 am this morning, so I've still not gotten a chance to eat my my chicken soft tacos.  Perhaps I'll do that after writing this entry.

The place is still quiet, very quiet.  I could be living on a desert island for all I know.  So being that it's quiet and I've been feeling bored, I decided to try out the showers in the public bathrooms.  Call me crazy, I have one in my room, but I've heard that the showers here at Gregson are really nice, so I wanted to try them out.  My whoer here doesn't have a seat, doesn't have a cool shower head, and steams up my room horribly, so I went down the hall to try it out.  These showers have a seat and a massaging shower head.  Its also much larger than the one that I have, so as I do at home, I could just sit and enjoy the steam pervade me, and the warmth of the shower invade my soul.  Though its not a problem to stand, its easier, as my leg still gets tired when I stand for a while, and the seat adds a bit of insurance in case I slip.

Well, that's about it for me, I'm getting kind of hungry so am looking forward to my tacos.  Yes there's something wrong with me, I'm looking forward to Taco Bell :).  More soon.

Sorry to hear about that migraine! I hope you feel better. Ouch. I get there weird aural migraines, have you ever heard of these? I get them about twice a year. I don't get the headache part but I completely lose the sight in usually my left eye. Only for about an hour, then it goes back to its usual lousy self. And boy, right now, I'd do just about anything for something nice and greasy from Taco Bell!
Have a nice day, from the land of frogs' legs and garden snails in garlic...

Haha, yeah when I was in Australia I know how much I missed Taco Bell. I feel fine this morning, whenever I get over the hump of the migraine, I wake up and I'm completely back to normal, so I feel fine today. I've never heard of your type of migraine, but I know they do exist. I think the thing I hate most about my migraines is the nausea that accompanies them. The headache I could deal with but when I throw up and hurt at the same time, wow, sucky. So the combination of demerol and anti nausea medicine is very much welcoming.

P.s. Frog legs aren't too bad, taste kind of like chicken to me actually :).

Frog legs and puppydog tails and ...

Yes, they do taste like chicken! It's all in the sauce, as they say. They have McDonald's and Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken here. But you got to eat with a knife and fork. You would like the coffee at McDonald's. It's good and strong! And they've just opened the first Parisian Starbucks. So we are very slowly taking over this country (evil grin).

I'm glad you didn't take it that I was thinking that showers are sexually hot and steamy, I was worried about that description there, lol. Damn are they nice though, very relaxing indeed.

Glad you are feeling all better today. Also glad I got to visit with you yesterday, though wish the circumstances had been different. We should hang out again soon, outside the ER I mean. hehe. And don't ever worry about waking me up if you need anything. I am just a lazy ass anyway and need to get out of bed!
