My migraine yesterday lasted until about 4:30, so 12 hours more or less. Which is typical for me and migraines. They’re not going to last 2-3 hours. It’s going to be 12 or more, sometimes spreading out to 2-3 days.
What wasn’t typical was that I still felt pretty meh afterward. One of the characteristics of my recent migraines has been that once it’s over, it’s as if it’s never been. I don’t get that fragile feeling anymore, where I’m afraid that if I lean over, my brain is going to fall out of my skull because it’s made of eggshells. And I didn’t have that yesterday. Instead, I just felt meh still. Kind of brainless, no energy, no strength.
What this told me was that yes, this migraine was very hormonal. I’m in the days of meh, as it were. Those days just before my period, where I don’t feel great.
The good news is that though today isn’t a good day, it isn’t a bad day either. It’s just another day of meh. I will be able to write today. Not 3000 words. My goal is 1500. We’ll see what I do.
My hope is that this is a typical day of meh. Which means that by the end of the day, I’ll feel fine and be able to get a lot more work done. As that’s kind of how my day is structured today, this will work in my favor.
Particularly since I’ll be interviewed as part of a podcast later on this evening. I’ll let you know more about where and when you can listen to it when I know.
I did do some harvesting last night. I have five bunches of spearmint now drying, and the dehydrator is going as well. The shelves that I put up for my “kitchen” area in the tiny house really don’t get used much for kitchen stuff – I don’t cook over here. However, they’re perfect for hanging herbs from. I have lavender, spearmint, and scented geranium leaves all hanging from it currently.
And I think that’s it from me today. There’s more stuff going on, but I need to save what little brain I have for the fiction. I hope you’re looking forward to a grand and glorious day!
