Week 20 One Daily Positive and Project 365 - Migraine

A good start to the week, lots of things planned. I could smell strawberries on Sunday and on Monday my head felt a bit funny, by Tuesday I was sensitive to light and noise and Wednesday my head was hurting. i took my usual dose of medication over Sunday, Monday and Tuesday but the migraine came. I have an appointment next week with the GP to discuss the beta blockers as they obviously aren't working any more.

134 Saturday We went to a boot sale to buy some bedding plants, then onto Worcester on a failed craft trip but successfully bought 6 Bougainvillea shrubs for hedge planting. I then went into town in the afternoon to purchase the material and party supplies. I weeded the pots and planted out my seedlings, planted a hanging basket and had a general tidy.

135 Sunday Peter set off early to play golf for the day getting home at 5pm for dinner. He dropped me and Bob off about 2 miles from home and we walked back via a coffee stop. I finished lining the kitchen cupboards, did the ironing, made some birthday cards and decorations.

136 Monday up early and Peter dropped me at the pool. I started with 20 lengths and adding 2 extra lengths each time I swim, so 24 lengths today. Walked into work and got a lift home. I spent the evening at the neighbours as the little one fell and bumped her head.

137 Tuesday After work I went to my first crochet lesson. They were originally booked for March 2020. Peter cooks every evening.

138 Wednesday Peter took the cat for her annual injections. I came home from work early with an upset stomach and vomiting.

139 Thursday Off work and not feeling well, had a really bad migraine, day spent in bed, no concept of time. School alarm going off all night. Bob kept a close eye on me.

140 Friday Called GP first thing, he called back midday with advise to take 1200mg of Ibuprofen followed by next dose of 900mg aspirin. Day passed in a blur other than constant car doors slamming from 3.20pm till 8pm with the school disco. Video call with both the grandchildren.
