The best laid plans…

I had plenty of plans last week. Finish a first draft, continue edits, attend my writers group meeting, catch up on critiques and spend some time with my mum. What I got was a migraine to end the week. Pretty much everything goes away when my brain notices nothing else but pain.

I’ve been getting migraines for years. Once I even tried to pinpoint my triggers but … sadly … found it could be any number of bizarre things. Chocolate … or Perfume …. or food allergy. Sigh. Now I just take the strongest painkillers I have and lay down. If I can sleep, it passes faster. But with the weather so hot , I couldn’t sleep because of the noise of the air con. So I suffered three days of  discomfort in a noisy but cool, dark room.

I should be grateful not to require injections to counteract them. Some people do but I’ve been lucky in that regard. Aside from the pounding head, the worst I’ve suffered is the loss of half my vision (an aura). I really hate those!

So last week managed:

New words – 5,348 on His Man of Business
Chapters edited – 2
Struggle – hardly got any exercise
Biggest Disappointment – the migraine stopped my fun.

I hope your week was better!

  1. Oh, Heather! That sucks! I’m glad you were able to get rid of it eventually. I’ve never had a migraine, but I can barely stand regular headaches, so I can’t imagine how un-fun that must be. Still, not bad on your word count, though! Next week will be better, though, I’m sure! *hugs*
