Tuesday Evening

Thank you all for your sweet comments. *hugs everyone*

I have had headaches all of my life. When I was a child, I would sit in the classroom, trying to concentrate on the blackboard and what my teacher was saying while my head pounded and my brain throbbed and pulsed. Sometimes my vision would go wonky and all I could do was put my head down and bury it in my arms to shut out the world. My teacher would come by, poke me in the shoulder, snap at me to straighten up and pay attention and on it would go. I would beg my mother to let me stay home because my head hurt. No dice. I don't blame her... Really I don't. It wasn't until I was an adult and we were discussing headaches one day and what I went through as a child that she finally believed that I was actually having them, not using them as an excuse to get out of chores or school. lol

I will definitely ask about that diuretic. If it can banish the Puff Monster from my life, I will be all over it. :D

I finally got all my laundry done. Took a while and since I started it later than I normally do, it felt like an all day project. Laundry is sooo much fun.

Day one with my new foundation and so far... So good. I'll give it a few days, tho and see how I really feel about it. I do know that this concealer isn't going to be the thing. It is fair when first applied but by late this afternoon, it was sunk in and my dark circles had come back out to play. I'll continue to use it until it is gone, but the search for the perfect concealer to banish my dark circles continues.

Okay, I need to go wash my face. I have enough calories left for a nice little snackipoo. Maybe a Skinny Cow? I am in the mood for something sweet.

'Night, all. *kisses*


  1. Hi! Just found you on Allan's blog. Congrats on your big loss! I can relate to the lifelong struggle with headches. Had mine since puberty, mostly sinus related. btw, I just LOVE Prescott! I spent almost 4 years in Yuma, and got to visit Prescott a couple times. Been a long time, though. Best of luck to you in your journey.

  2. I too have suffered headaches all my life. Had my first migraine when I was 10 I think it was. Passed that lovely bit of life onto my own daughter who has been getting migraines since she was about two. It was heartbreaking seeing one so little puking from a migraine and only being able to say that her head hurt. Fortunately, her headaches have lessened as she has grown up. Mine only venture into migraine territory a few times a year. 'Course, with any headache, I am on them like white on rice and overdo the aspirin taking (if I take at least 4 to 6, they can usually kill a headache in about an hour). If the aspirin doesn't help, I break out an Imitrex...or two if one doesn't cut it. Those suckers are about $27/tablet though so I use them as last resort. I also use ice packs. I hate when they get to puke stage though. Not fun a't'all. Hoping you wake today headacheless.

  3. Forgot to say that I also take 10 mg. Amitryptiline daily as a headache prophylactic.

  4. Hope you get the headaches taken care of. I don't know if it's been mentioned, but have you had your eyes checked recently? Just throwing out ideas!

    Anyway, I've nominated you, Miss E for the Stylish Blogger award! See my blog for details!
