More Headaches

I had another headache again this morning. I went back to bed for a while. When I got up I went on my phone for a while. Then I went downstairs and had some tea and something to eat. Then I went and picked up the kids from school. We came home and dropped off my son, my daughter picked up her dance stuff and then I drove her to dance. I stopped at Shoppers and Sobeys on the way home. Then I came home and made supper. After supper my daughter and I watched a couple shows while I hemmed a pair of her new work pants. I had to leave to pick up my daughter and her friend from dance. My oldest daughter got my son into bed. After dropping off my daughter’s friend we came home. She went to bed and I finished my daughter’s pants while watching a couple more shows with her. Now I’m going to bed. I had a stinking headache all day!! I don’t think that I’m supposed to use the needles every day though. I only have enough for 7 per month. So I just stayed in pain today. It sucks!!

Night All! 💤😴.

A Needle A Day To Keep The Headache Away

I slept in again today. I went on my phone for a bit when I woke up. Then I went downstairs and had something to eat. Then I woke up my daughter and did some laundry. We got ready to go to my parents house. We drove to the city. My hubby dropped us off, because he had to go to his brother’s house to help him move something. My dad played chess with my son and my mom played scrabble with my girls and I. I had a bad headache (I know that this isn’t big news!) so I took my migraine medication, it didn’t work so after an hour I gave myself an injection of that new medication that I have. I was able to do it okay, it made me a bit nauseous, but I think that it was just the idea of giving myself a needle that made me nauseous, not the actual medication. However, the good news is that it actually seemed to work!! Yay! Weird… something actually worked!! Nothing ever does. I wish that I wouldn’t have to give myself an injection, but I guess that if it works then I will have to get used to it. Neither of the games that we were playing were fast games. My hubby got there before any of us were finished. He sat on the couch and went on his phone. My dad and son finished their game first. We were not even able to finish our scrabble game, because it was time to set the table for supper, because it was ready to eat. So we stopped playing and set the table. We had supper and then we had coffee and pumpkin pie for dessert. Afterwards we played our dice game called Tenzie for a short while. Then we came home. My daughter had a short shower. Then my oldest daughter gave my son a very quick bath and I got him into bed. Once he was asleep I watched a couple shows with my daughter. Now I’m going to go to bed.

More Headaches

I slept in today. I took something for my headache and went on my phone for a while when I got up. Then I had some tea and something to eat. After a while my daughter and I made a grocery list. Then we went to No Frills and Sobeys. We came home and my hubby and son had started a fire in the firepit in the backyard. We roasted hotdogs and smokies over the fire for supper. Then we had marshmallows for dessert. We stayed outside for a bit. We came in and my hubby and son went downstairs to play a game together. I did some laundry. My daughter and I watched a couple shows together. Then I got my son into bed. I watched a couple more shows with my daughter. Now I’m going to bed.

Headache Life!

Today felt like a short day, because I spent most of it in bed with a stupid headache!! When I did get up, I went on my phone for a while. Then I went downstairs and had something to eat. I read my book. Then I went to Sobeys for a few groceries. I came home and made supper. After supper we watched a couple shows and then I got my son into bed. My daughter came home from her friend’s house pretty late, they spent the whole day (there was no school today) working on a biology project. Once my son was asleep I watched a couple more shows with my oldest daughter.

Stupid Head

I had another headache again this morning. I went back to bed for a couple hours once the kids went to school. I woke up at about 11:00. I got my daughter up too. I had something to eat, then we went to the city. We went to the Heritage place and my daughter got her jaw x-ray done. Then we went to our family friend’s house for a short visit. From there we went to Millwoods Town Centre and bought my daughter the safety shoes that she needs for her new job that starts next week. We drove back to town after that. Before going home we went to Sobeys and grabbed a few things. When we got home I got a message from my daughter’s dance teacher, a couple of her classes were canceled today because her teacher has the stomach flu, so I didn’t have to drive her to dance as early as I usually do. So, I got supper started and then I drove her to dance. I stopped at Walmart on the way home. Then I went home. Supper was finished when I got there. My hubby had already left for work and my daughter and son had already eaten. So I ate supper. Then my daughter and I watched a couple shows. Then I put my son to bed. Once he was asleep I watched another show with my daughter.

Another Day Another Headache

I woke up with a headache again today. What else is new?! I got the kids to school, then took my migraine medication and lied down. After a while I fell asleep. When I woke up, I went on my phone for a bit. Then I went downstairs and had something to eat. My hubby was watching a tv show, that new hospital one that just came out, I think it’s called New Amsterdam. I picked up my daughter from school and my hubby got our son. My daughter grabbed what she needed for dance and we left right away. I dropped her off at dance, then drove back to town. I went to Sobeys for some dog food and a few things for supper. Then I came home and made supper, my daughter helped me by making a salad. My hubby left for work. We ate supper. Then we watched a couple shows. My daughter stayed with my son and I went to pick up my younger daughter and her friend from dance. When we got home I finished putting my son to bed. Then I watched a show with my daughter, we’re going to watch one more and then I’m going to head to bed.

Picked Up My Injections…

I got hardly any sleep last night…yuck! So, of course what happens when I don’t get enough sleep… I woke up with a terrible headache!! After I got the kids off to school, I crawled back into bed. I was in a lot of pain, so it took me a long time to actually fall asleep. I finally did though. When I woke up I just stayed in bed and read a bit. Then I got the kids from school. I quickly went to the store to get something easy for supper, so that my oldest could make supper while I was in the city. Today is the day that I stay in the city while my daughter dances, since she only dances for an hour and a half. I still wasn’t feeling great, so I just tilted my seat back in the van and listened to the radio. After she was finished, we drove back to town. I dropped her off at her friend’s house, they had homework that they were working on and they were also going to try to make their Halloween costumes. Then I went to Rexall to pick up my new prescriptions. The pharmacist went over how to give myself the injections. Then I went home. Supper was ready, so we ate. Then my daughter and I watched a show on the android box. I got my son into bed. Once he was asleep I watched another show with my daughter. Now I’m going to take my migraine medication and if it doesn’t work I guess I’ll try the injection, even though it makes me anxious. I’m sure that I will get used to it. I know that diabetics give themselves injections all of the time!

Dr’s Appointment

This morning after I got the kids to school I went back to bed for a couple hours. I had a horrible headache. I got up and had something quick to eat and then I got ready to go to the city. My hubby and I went to my Dr Hauptman appointment. He decreased my face pain medication even more, because my face hasn’t been bothering me (knock on wood!). I did talk to him about all of the headaches that I have been having. He started me on a preventative medication to help with the headaches and added a medication that I have to inject myself with during acute headaches, if my Zomig (migraine medication) doesn’t work. I must admit that I am a bit nervous about injecting myself!! He said that the pharmacist will teach me how. I have to pick it up tomorrow, so I guess I’ll see what they say!! We came home after the appointment. My head was still pounding, so I just closed my eyes for the half hour that I had before I had to get the kids. Once I picked them up, I left my son with my hubby and drove my daughter to dance. I stopped at Shoppers and Rexall on the way back home. Then I came home and made supper. My hubby ate quickly and left for work. After we finished eating my daughter and I watched a show. Then we went to Sobeys to get a few groceries. We came back home and watched another show and then I got my son into bed. I said goodnight to my daughter. I went downstairs and watched another show with my oldest daughter and now I’m going to head to bed. I still have a damn headache. I guess I can probably get used to injections if they actually help!! I’m tired of having a headache!

Mom And Dad’s

I slept in again today. I went on my phone when I got up. Then I went downstairs. My daughter’s friend was over to help her take down her trampoline for the winter. I went outside and cleaned out the bin that we usually store it in, so that they’d be able to put it away. Then I came inside and had some tea and something to eat. I woke up my oldest daughter and she had a quick shower. We stopped at the McDonald’s on our way to my mom and dad’s house so that my daughter could pick up her orientation package. Then we went to my parent’s place. My dad and my son played a game of chess, while my girls and I played Scrabble Slam with my mom. My hubby had already made plans to watch football at his friend’s house, so he didn’t come with us. After our game we set the table and had supper. Mom cooked a delicious roast for supper. After supper we had some coffee and some people had ice cream. Then we played spoons. We left around 8:00. When we got home my younger daughter went to the Walmart with a couple of her friends to pick up some things to make their Halloween costumes. I gave my son a bath and then got him into bed. Afterwards I said goodnight to my daughter. Then I washed one of her old dance costumes by hand, her teacher is hoping to reuse them for a different class and if my daughter’s costume fits someone, they will buy it from us. After I washed it, I watched a show with my daughter and now I’m going to bed too!!

A Late Night…

This morning I slept in. I went on my phone for a while, checking emails and going on Facebook. My oldest daughter had an interview for a job at McDonald’s. She isn’t too thrilled about it, I guess that there’s a bit of a stigma about working at McDonald’s. However, the interview went well and she got a job. They want to start her on the front counter, but train her to be the guest experience leader. That’s the person who deals with the Birthday parties and town events and things. She starts her orientation on Monday. The whole family came upstairs and we talked for a while. Then we went downstairs. I cleaned up the kitchen. Then I made supper. After eating, my hubby and son went downstairs and played video games together and my daughter and I watched a few shows. Then I put my son to bed. I stayed up too late binge watching a show on the Android box with my daughter. Now I’m going to hit the hay!
