It’s been awhile, a couple of years. Can’t say I’ve missed doing that.
Actually as it turns out, I had a migraine. The kind that you can feel behind your eyes that make them pulsate. Like they are going to pop out at any minute. Then comes the nausea and vomiting. Basically you feel like you are dying.
I found myself in bed all day with this ailment, wondering what kind of sickness I had acquired, where I had acquired it and if people thought I was bulimic when they heard me throwing up.
The silliest part about being sick is when you are thinking about how long you are going to be sick and then it occurs to you “This is a really bad time for me to be sick. This is a bad week for me.” Yeah, but is there ever a good time to be sick? I mean you may think ”Oh, it would be nice to be sick to avoid that inspection at work” But then when you are painfully writhing in bed and unable to keep anything down, is that convenient? Hell no. Much easier to just fake it.
I think the worst thing about migraines is the fact that it only usually lasts for a couple of hours. I honestly thought I was dying. I laid in bed for 5 hours in absolute pain and then all of a sudden I was fine and could go about my business. What the hell?
It’s like your body having a temper tantrum.
I googled what might have caused my migraine and after reading a couple of articles I have learned something about medical journals. They seem to never want to say I don’t know. When you want to know what has caused something they give you a bunch of generic things so you are left thinking “It could have been anything! I’m surprised I don’t have a migraine everyday!”
And it’s not just migraines.
“What causes cancer?” “Breathing, Sex, Eating Oreos, Sitting in the Sun, Genetics, Singing in the Car, Walking through Casinos”
Then after that list you are thinking “Oh Snap, I’ve done all of those! I hella deserved that cancer.”
Ridiculous. How was your day?
