I'm on my final week of the prednisone and have had migraine free days finally after at least 6 months of daily headaches. I think I was going on 4 days migraine free. Then, yesterday, I had to go into work to finish cleaning up and checking out. There were lots of co-workers there, lots of things to get done, lots of stress. I came home feeling frazzled and started to feel the migraine come on. By dinner, it was a full blown doozie. Because I'm on the prednisone, I'm not supposed to take any pain meds. When I went to bed last night, I was feeling sorry for myself, thinking, 'here I go again'. Then, I realized that on Saturday, when I put together all my medicines for the week, I forgot to include one of my daily pills. My Nortriptyline, which I take twice a day was missing from my pill keeper. I haven't taken it Sat evening, Sun morning, evening or Mon morning. Ugh, I felt so stupid. No wonder I got a migraine!
I think I had better make a list of all of the medicines (5 preventatives) I take so this never happens again. I rely on my memory to get me through everything, but can't afford to mess up like that again.
Here's hoping for a stress free day today. The only thing on the to-do list is a dinner with all of the student teachers and master teachers with the UC Davis program later tonight. Oh, wait, that might be stressful. I will make sure to eat dessert first!
