Migraines, megaphones and mystery

Ok, so I woke up with a horrible migraine in the middle of the night. Yeah, I know, big shocker. Anyways, I didn't bother taking Tylenol, I figured I'd ride it out without taking anything. I guess deep down I must be a glutton for punishment.

This morning I paid for that and I ended up taking four Tylenol 1s. It was either that or take a Fiorinal and then not go into work because I'd be really messed up. I find that the only time I can really take those are when I can have time to sleep them off. Basically the best time is after work or on a weekend, but unfortunately I can't schedule my migraines. ;)

What can only be described as sounding like a german shepherd with a megaphone started barking outside, and keep in mind that I'm on the 18th floor and the windows were shut. When I get migraines my hearing becomes really acute and I swear at times I can hear a flea fart.

Now I'm waiting for the Super to start testing the fire alarms. Yes, I can really pick the days when I get a migraine...

On a side note, I found out that a friend of mine, K, spent a couple hours yesterday reading the blog. It's kind of neat how I figured out that it was her. I noticed that I had a huge number of hits to the blog (I <3 statcounter) and delved into who was looking at the site. A majority of the hits came from a university in Ottawa and I put two and two together. I mean, really, who would be *that* interested in my little blog to read it for hours and look at all the backdated posts? ;)

I also found out this morning that my brother spent a few hours early this morning looking at the blog as well. He doesn't know that I know he read it yet, so hey ugly! ;) I figure it has to be him, who else would google my name, maple and blog and the IP address was his work.

I think I should have been a detective...

Does Imitrex not work for you? or how about Maxalt? I had really bad migraines until about 3 years ago, and both of those meds worked great for me, without a lot of side effects. Usually within 20 min they were gone-Whamo! Sorry you have those, for those of you who have been so lucky to not experience a migraine-thank your lucky stars. My hair even hurt when I would have one, the TV sounded like a concert, and sometimes it would hurt so bad I would decide that it was too much to even get up to take the meds, even though I knew it would almost instantly make it better. Funny, today is my anniversary, and my very first migraine almost kept us from getting on the plane to go get married. Hope you feel better soon.
