Eulogy For A Silently Sick Silver Kitten



Pain, pain go away

Don’t come back another day


Since this headache started early Saturday afternoon I have taken many, many medications. I had a list here (just because it’s kind of fun), but am removing it because it worried my mom (“Mama Migraine,” I think that’s cute). Every time I have an intractable migraine, I take many varying drugs, frequently; and in all my years of shaking up my medication regimen in this kind of do-or-die situation I have never had a problem. As long as I’m watching my acetominophen intake for my poor liver, nothing I take is dangerous because I stay within the recommended dosage… it’s the frequency I sometimes flex to my benefit. Can you blame me? Extra Imitrex or the ER? I do always keep an eye on the possibility of Serontonin Symdrome. I did have that happen once, but it was from NYQUIL. The dextropromorphan put me over the edge. I had a bad cold. Even then, I did not have to seek treatment.

That said, I hope I don’t end up in the ER for the first time in nearly 4 months! I had really bad neck pain Friday, and this headache spread from my right forehead to my temple, behind my ear, the crown and back of my head, and back into the right side of my neck. Saturday night it switched sides and became forehead only, and now it’s back to its original location. This type of headache is hardest to get rid of. I’m going to dive deep into my zone now and meditate on relief.
