Life Post: Is It a Migraine? I Don't Know, but It Sucks

I'm actually posting another life post only a day after the last one. When's the last time I managed that? Not that there's much to say other than the fact that I've been sitting in my room all day trying to move around as little as possible in the hopes that my headache will go away and it hasn't. No lie, guys, this is the worst my head has felt in at least a very long time.

I'm used to bad headaches because they tend to come along with both my allergies and my period. Plus, I get terrible headaches from the heat, so they're especially common for me in the summer. I think my allergies and the heat worked together to really do a number on me though. I've tried multiple times of pain medicine throughout the day, and none of them have worked. I'm in enough pain that I also feel a bit dizzy and walking seems like a hazard.

It might actually be a migraine. My mom and sister both have migraines, but while I have headaches pretty frequently, I don't think they're migraines. Occasionally though, I do think what I'm experiencing is a migraine, and this might be one. It's fitting the migraine symptoms a lot more closely than my headaches typically do, although after witnessing my sister's really severe migraines, this seems like almost nothing in comparison. But it still really sucks.

It just hasn't been a fun day.

On the bright side, the next time I have one of my more usual headaches that aren't as bad as this, I'll be more likely to remember that it could be much worse. Maybe that'll help me feel better.

I have responsibilities though, so I've been forced to leave the house today and still have to again later today. The smart thing might be to sleep, but I actually slept in today for the first time in ages, which means I cannot find the will to actually fall asleep. Ugh.

At this point, I'm just hoping that it will be gone by the time I wake up tomorrow.

And I did not at all plan to rant for that long about my head. Apparently I had built up some frustration over the course of the day. Who knew?

Luckily, I had decided to take a break from writing for today anyway, so I wasn't struggling to get words down when the pain was at its peak earlier today. God knows that probably wouldn't have helped.
