Mother of Carbs!!!!

I overslept today, and woke up with a monster migraine.  This happens when I oversleep.  And when there are changes in the weather patterns.  Today, both things converged, and . . . hellooo migraine!!!!  I took my pain med, which did nothing for me.  So I ate a donut.  An artisanal, much too sweet donut, covered with dark chocolate and filled with Nutella.  I scarfed it down, and I feel sick now.  It also did nothing for my migraine, of course.  So then I had to go for the big guns of migraine meds: 25 milligrams of sumatriptan spray.  That stuff works fairly quickly, but not without some interesting side effects: rapid heartbeat; lightheadedness; migraine feeling much worse before it subsides.  Basically, I feel like I am going to die before I start to feel better.


So I was lying in my darkened bedroom, my husband banished to the living room with the cat (that would be Mia), thinking, "I'm dying.  Oh dear lord, I am dying.  My head is going to explode, and my heart is beating out of my chest, and death is a welcome thing right now, and that dastardly donut is the worst darned thing I have ever eaten in my entire life.  It is sticky sweet and nauseating and I can still taste it and why did I ever think about eating it?  ARGH!!!!!!"  And I am suddenly not sure if I can make it to Thursday and Jenny Craig and OMG what the heck have I done to myself!!!!


The pain has now subsided.  At its worse, the migraine was an 8 on a scale of 1-10.  Now, it's a 3 or a 4.  But that darned donut.  I can still taste it.  And I feel so guilty.  And I haven't even started Jenny Craig.  It's a bad, bad day today.
