Just 2 more sleeps …
… decision made! Sticking with plans for a big journey staring on Saturday … only one person tried to persuade me otherwise which quite surprised me I expected a lot of encouragement to be ‘sensible’
This will be a short and sweet update. It has been a strange day!
I wakened at 03:11 with a terrible migraine pain (do you ever ponder how it is you remember these sorts of times so accurately?) and couldn’t get back to sleep with the pain and nausea. Made myself get up as normal thinking a gentle walk and some fluids might help. Fluids were a non starter – one sip was enough to make me heave. I think the dog walk was helpful and I managed to get ready – yes I know what you are thinking “why did she go to work with a migraine?” I had appointments and no details to contact people to put them off and nowhere to rearrange the appointments to in the next 2 days.
The bus was well behaved and the driving as good as usual but given how delicate I felt, the ride was uncomfortable but I was determined not to be overwhelmed by the nausea in public. Copious applications of a levomenthol stick and some ready salted crisps throughout the morning helped to settle things and now I just feel woozy.
This afternoon was a positive meeting – one of a series we have held and my last so a little sadness. I didn’t earn my megarider miles today – a lovely colleague insisted she wanted to give me a lift home … I protested about the distance and the cost but she was determined … thank you it was very much appreciated given my general wobblyness.
- Made a brave decision and was pleasantly surprised at how few folk tried to make me change it;
- Enjoyed co-facilitating a meeting that I will miss being part of in the future;
- Should have gone to an evening meeting but need to lie down in dark room so I can work tomorrow; and
- Have felt cold all day (almost certainly a migraine side effect) – not a great day.
