How Not to Spend a Firday

Posted by Seeking Solace |

Thursday night, I felt the familiar twinge of pain in my head. I popped an Imitrex and went to bed.

The next morning the pain was much, much worse. After two more rounds of Imitrex, my doctor suggested I go to the ER.

Six hours, one CT Scan and a round of IV drugs later, I am back to normal.

Poor Husband should be sainted and given combat pay for dealing with my numerous medical issues. He is such a trooper.

Also my students were probably happy that class was canceled.

And if I run into the secretary who is somewhat nasty to me when I call, I'll just flash her my discharge papers.

Sadly, the only time people like that actually understand is when they have that kind of pain themselves. I used to have to call in on occasion with a bad back. Until my freak of a boss put her back out, she didn't understand that I couldn't sit and take phone calls about hair appointments if I couldn't even sit long enough to drive to WORK.

Crap! That's HORRIBLE. I can't even imagine. I'm so glad to know you are now resting comfortably. Do you know what might have triggered it or is that a stupid question? I'm thinking of you and your sweet spouse!

Thanks everyone!

I think it was a combination of too much caffine, being stressed and that time of the month. Totally sucks.

Sorry to hear that! Hope you're feeling better now. BTW, I think we've just discovered this afternoon that not all 5-0 teams are created equal...sigh.
