On October 30 my doctor added a new migraine preventive to my meds. This past Tuesday was the last day I had a migraine until last night. I know what triggered this one and won't be eating that again but right now my migraine and nausea are bad and I could really use your prayers. It's so bad that I laid down at 11 a.m. to try to sleep it off and didn't wake up until 4 p.m. and I wouldn't have then if Clara hadn't started meowing for attention.

I had so much I had planne...d to get done today while Sarah and David were gone for her engineering class and now the only thing I will manage is getting dinner ready so they can eat when they get home. 
I mentally hold my breath on the good days wondering when the next one will hit. I'm tired of having almost constant migraines and nausea. That Tuesday through Friday migraine-free period was the longest one I've had in quite a while.

Stress is adding to it I'm sure, but I don't see how I can eliminate any of it. David's now been out of work for 14 months. We've managed to hang on but I don't know how much longer that will be possible. Sarah is working about 24 hours a week on top of all her classes in her senior year. Daniel has started a new job and is in the process of moving out.

I just needed to vent a little and get my thoughts down. Thanks for reading
