The last week my throat has hurt. I figured had had eaten something that I was allergic to or I had slept with my mouth open.

All day long it continued to hurt. I decide, sort of on the spur of the moment, to go to the Target minute to see if I had strep or thrush. I didn't really expect them to tell me that I had either since I have never had strep. (I was only worried about thrush because I am nursing.) When the test came back as positive, both me and the nurse were a little surprised. However, it made the whole thing much easier.

Anyways, my throat hurts. Hopefully that stops soon.

Migraines can suck it.

It feels totally unfair that the first day it hasn't been super hot, I have a migraine.

Also, I want to clean everything but this headache is making it tough.

I had a migraine almost all weekend. I was sort of getting it on Friday afternoon and it came on full force while I was on the bus on 394 in a bus. I was so glad I didn't throw up.

Yesterday was bad. I had the migraine and was super anxious. I don't know what was up with that but we went shopping and when we got home I just had to cry. It was really weird.

Today I still had it and nothing was taking care of it. I was able to get rid of the pain but I felt totally out of everything while the book swap was going on. Then, toward the end of the party, it was gone. Thanks head!

So, I hope I wasn't a terrible host at the party. I am not sure i was making sense through most of it.

I woke up this morning with a headache. It sucked because I was really looking forward to Sexy dress-up day. Anyways, I watched old movies and napped all day instead which was okay since it is snowing outside and cozy inside.

Once my head got better I started thinking about ways to quilt Zach's quilt. I want something that will soften the straight lines so I think I am going to do an all-over meandering pattern in the center part. I was thinking about doing a fancy free motion pattern on the border but I am not sure.

Lately I have been thinking about fabric stashing a lot. I look at blogs and envy people of there huge fabric stashes full of pretty fabric but then I think about how much they spent on that without using it and Midwestern sensibilities are offended. Why would you buy fabric without a plan? I actually have enough fabric that I should be able to quilt until the rest of Zach's schooling without buying anything other than batting and maybe backing fabric. I did buy all new stuff for Zach's quilt but I got some back pay/bonus and I decided to use the leftover money after the new sink on something I wanted.

On the sewing machine front I learned the my aunt has my grandma's sewing machine and doesn't use it. So she is going to give it to me. I am pretty excited about this because I have been using my mom's sewing machine for two years and fell guilty about it.

I also have a singer feather weight that I really want to try quilting with but the stand that it is on is so uncomfortable to sit at. I guess I am taller than the average woman in the 1930s.

I can't decide if I have a migraine or just sinus pain. Or the weird facial nerve pain that I have been having for the last couple months.

I don't really think I have been pain-free in months. I know it is time to go to the doctor but I keep hoping that it will just stop.

So I don't really quilt when I have a migraine. I make too many mistakes so it isn't worth it. However, this weird pain feels like a migraine so I haven't really sew much lately. This makes me sad because I have so many things I want to get done.

Today was another lost day. I was able to get dressed and go to the store but half way through the trip I started to feel bad and that was the end of that.

I am trying not to complain so much about migraines online because it isn't constructive but I am frustrated. I had so many plans for the day and I didn't get anything done. Sigh.

All I want to do is have a month of no headaches. I would get so much done.

Update, if you ever need cheering up, a marathon of "How I met your mother" is a good way.

I don't have a headache anymore but all the medication has left me wide awake. If I trusted the no headache thing I would do some sewing but I tend to mess things up when I am at this stage of head aching.

Also, I am hungry but I already have my mouth guard in so I don't want to eat. Talk about first world problems.

Dear body, get knocked up soon so I stop having these headache. Please.

I spent most of the morning trying not to throw up and then failing at it. The rest of the day I felt weak and tired from the headache I woke up with. Sigh.

I worry that I am missing too much work because of these headaches. I miss my preventative medication so much. I also worry that I am going to get a headache the day of the wedding. :(

Oh, last week I turned 35. It was nice but rather a non-event.

Why do I spend most of the day denying that I have a migraine? I only get this off task and distracted when I am in pain. I should just take my stupid pill and be done with it.

I am on the forth day of this migraine. It has been a while since I had one this long and it is so annoying. I know I whine when I get them but I hate how much harder things are when I have one. Work is just like banging my head against a wall and I know if I didn't have a headache I would realize this wall was a door. I can barely form a sentence verbally so I know I sound like a dolt. I wish I had something I could take but I am out of options until tomorrow morning. Sigh.

1. I went to a Twins game. It snowed. We lost. I got my twitter on the score board. All-in-all, it was memorable.

2. I had an epic migraine on Friday. I had to take a Maxalt and when that failed I ended up taking TWO vicodin to keep the pain at a level that was bearable. I obviously called in sick, which makes it the first time I had to call in sick at my new job. I hate migraines.

3. My dad had surgery on Friday. He had his feeding tube and chemo port removed. Yay! He is pretty happy with having them out. He hated the feeding tube. That should be it for the cancer stuff. He is back to working 70 hour weeks right now (road construction is crazy in the summer).

4. Serinia and I hung out today. I went to Opitz Outlet to look at wedding dresses this morning. They had a couple that fit that looked good if I was either a) wanting a much sexier dress or b) a summer wedding. We then went to Macy's to shop and I ended up getting some stuff for the honeymoon (I have been collecting stuff for a few month for this, all on clearance, because I am really cheap).

5. We also went to Trader Joe's where I was able to get 7 bottle's of wine for $55 dollar. So cheap.

6. Now I am looking at plane tickets for Zach and I to go to Zach's sister's wedding this summer.

7. Next I am going to cut some fabric for my brother's quilt. Then I am going to do a lot of ironing.

8. Tomorrow I am going to start the process to order save the date cards for the wedding and relook at the guest list. I am also going to go over the task list to see if there is anything we could tackle the next week.

Not only do I have a headache but I made the decaf coffee too strong.

Yesterday was a bad day. I had a migraine. However, it was a migraine that made me dumb first. I spent 4 or 5 hours banging my head against the wall trying to figure out something that I have done a billion times before and it wouldn't work. I almost cried. Then my head started hurting. :(

Anyways, now I am behind on my project and I hate that. It will be fine because I told everyone that needed to be told and came in early but it makes me feel like a slacker.

On the upside, this was the first migraine in 26 days.

I have been on Topamax for about a year. In that year I have gone from about 15 migraines a month to 4 or 5 (and those are much less painful)*. For a long time I couldn't drink anything with carbonation but a couple months ago that stopped being true. I just got used to the taste of it now. However, the side effect that hasn't gone away is the lack of appetite.

In the last year I have lost about a pound a month. I am never hungry, which is the weirdest feeling. I always know when I forget to take my pills two doses in a row (it has happened a couple times) because I am actually hungry. I am pretty good at eating because I like going out to lunch with my coworkers but if no one comes over and says "want to go to lunch?" I will just skip it without noticing. I eat dinner because Zach is around, however, if he isn't home I'll just skip it or eat something small. I am good once I start eating but I just don't think about eating any more. It is so weird.

This has made me stop baking. I sort of miss baking. :(

*I am also avoiding caffiene, which I am sure is also cutting down on headaches. However, I drink iced tea and decaf coffee so I am not completely cutting it out. I think it is more the topamax

The weird thing about migraines is that they are not normal pain. They aren't pain like a broken bone or a sprain muscle or a cut. No, it is pain that doesn't have a reason. It is pain that comes when it comes and leaves when it leaves and it feels like there is nothing you can do to control it. Pain isn't the only thing it does to you, it also makes your brain mush, in my case it makes everything smell bad, hate flickering light and loud noises. My head feels like one of those eyeball glide toys, I might stop moving my head but everything continues to move.

I wish something would stop them. I also wish I had some migraine medication in my purse.

1) I had a migraine for way too much of this weekend.
2) Sexy Dress Up day was a lot of fun.
3) I didn't get anything done on my to-do list
4) However, I did manage to harangue Zach into plumbing work at 8pm which made him cranky. :(

My day

It isn't a good sign that I am feeling queasy, is it?
