A few good hours

Lately my migraines are rarely terrible, soul-crushingly painful events. But I am almost never completely pain or symptom free.

Yesterday was the first day in weeks that I had a solid chunk of time with no migraine symptoms. I wrote the introduction to two of my proposal chapters, the methods for one chapter, did some planning for other sections, and came up with a plan B for a potentially problematic part of one of my projects.

I also did yoga, took a long walk, uploaded some photos, made dinner, and talked with a friend.

8 totally migraine free hours and I did more yesterday than I did in the week prior.

Today I had breakfast and laid back down, did my breakfast dishes and laid back down, washed my face and brushed my teeth and laid back down, answered a few emails and laid back down. After this blog post is published, I’m going to lie back down.

I need more days like yesterday.
