    Thanks, A. I swear the predrome and postdrome are getting to the point where they're worse than the actual headache.

    The migraine started last night, but I took Maxalt and a hot shower and that was that! No hangover, though. Thank goodness.

    Feeling so much better today. Brain has finally stopped telling me to eat. I had to brute force tell it NO yesterday so I could eat only when truly hungry. I got right back on track.

    Sweetheart has decided to be very supportive and put his potato chips out of site. Trying to reduce the food cues. Out of sight, out of mind.



    Already going off of chocolate for a while. Going to see what a PMS is like without it. Also, as soon as the shelled nuts and nut butter are gone I'm not replenishing them. I'm only going to keep cream cheese, nuts in shells, and avocados on hand for snacks, and even then I will try to incorporate them into meals instead, especially the nuts and avocados. They are a nutritional boon for my diet for magnesium, fiber, and extra fat. I do like to have the cream cheese when I get home because sometimes dinner comes late. I'm just too inclined to get in the pantry and munch on a few nuts. If I have to actually crack them it should slow me down considerably. Plus it brings back fun childhood memories of Christmas when Dad would want bowls of nuts hanging around. I'd sit there with my parents cracking and eating nuts and watching Christmas specials.

    I also think I may have solved the mystery of the plateau: potassium. Even giving myself magnesium I still have to take large doses of it. I'm going up to 1500mg a day again.

    At a charity chili cookoff. Chili, fajitas, sour cream, shredded cheese, grilled veggies... Ohhhh... 🤤 Low carb face stuffing at its very finest.

    I'm being slightly bad and allowing myself a splash of diet coke.

    Former Oilers quarterback Dan Pastorini was hanging out here. He gave us an autograph. Nice guy.

    Oh shoot, I missed you yesterday. I am hoping all goes well and you are back up to feeling good soon.

    Hehehe! The crying pig knows my pain!

    I feel much better, but I've medicated the migraine as much as I dare, and I can't get rid of it. All the mouth breathing is too triggering. Gonna talk to ENT about it this evening before I call neuro in the morning. Thinking I'm going to be taking one of my Immitrex shots.

    That's 90% of my pain! I have all the sensation back in my nose, but it's not very painful. Heck, I just took some of the Tylenol 3 he gave me for pain to see if it would help the damn migraine.

    Funny thing about me, I was actually allergic to codeine as a child. I don't remember what it did exactly (too little), but my mother told me I would scream. By the time I was 18, I no longer had a reaction. Of any kind. It does nothing. I took the opportunity to see if it did anything for migraine, and it doesn't. I had a similar experience with demorrhal (sp?) being utterly useless until they gave it to me in the ER for a bad migraine. Worked almost as well as Immitrex! Morphine just makes me throw my guts up. Percocet is ok. Vicodin is useless unless paired with naproxen.

    I have some weird reactions to opioids.
