I’m so grateful that sumatriptan exists and that it actually knocks out a migraine every time (eventually). Many migraineurs aren’t so lucky. Some have no meds that consistently work; others get such awful migraines they can’t function. It’s rare that I’m so affected I can’t function, especially if I take meds early on during an attack. Recently, though, I did have super bad pain that I foolishly went to sleep with, sans meds. The worst of it struck in the middle of the night with the whole range of symptoms ~ light aversion, disorientation, rapidly pounding pulse, and vomiting. It took a while for the suma to work, but it finally did, and I was so thankful to the scientists who discovered that this epilepsy drug works well for some migraineurs too. I don’t know what I’d do without it. Again, today, I needed it when I woke up. Generally, I feel the worst first thing in the morning, even when I get decent sleep.
Last week, I went through the fridge and threw every salty thing away after my “bad” blood pressure reading. I also bought a BP monitor. Well, each reading I’ve had so far is in the green “good” zone, except one, which was right after coffee in the morning ~ same as the day I went to the doc’s. So that’s sorted. I guess I can stop exercising now… like I was exercising, haha. Actually, I did a few times. I would like to say that I’ve reaped side benefits from eating fresh healthy food for 10 solid days, such as better sleep and glowing skin and tons of energy, but nope. I am the exact same tired, achy person I was when I ate a frozen dinner every day and snacked on sugary crap. In any case, I’m super grateful that I don’t seem to have a BP problem… yet. Also, I love pizza and other salty things! In moderation, of course.
I recently watched Ophelia on AMC and it was fabulous. If you can watch this movie, I highly recommend it ~ the acting and the costumes are first-rate, plus I enjoy a reimagined story. (Look for next Monday’s Peeve though to find out what I think of AMC otherwise, lol.) Also, on Hulu, the second season of Only Murders in the Building is starting off fantastic! Like Fandango, I wish the whole season was available to binge. There’s nothing else I like on Hulu, so I’ll probably cancel it after Murders. Prime still seems to have the best variety of movies and tons to choose from in each category. But of course I’ll have to subscribe to HBO soon to get House of the Dragon…
I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend at home with the kitties. How about you?
