it came in the form of a migraine.
not the answer i was looking for let me tell you.
i have suffered with migraines since my early twenties. i went through a really bad break up…and voila…migraines became a part of my life.
i don’t get them nearly as often as i used to – thank god. but it’s still not fun when they pay me a visit.
i had one hour left in my day yesterday…when it came to the point that i either needed to leave the office NOW or be stuck here bowing to the porcelain god.
and so off i went.
it may sound strange to you…but my migraines are actually an unusual blessing.
i only get them if i am stressed out to the core, or if my body is tired of trying to get it through to my stubborn brain – that i need to slow it down.
so my body shuts down – and i am forced to give myself the thing i so desperately need. rest.
i went home and slept for about 4 hours!!! 4 hours! a deep sleep. the puppy, perhaps sensing i was not at my best, slept on top of me and didn’t leave my side.
i was able to sleep the whole night through too – well i woke up once…
but the point is i slept.
today i am battling a slight headache. typical when i get a migraine…the remnants stay for a few days.
i was going to go to the gym tonight..to make up for last nights ass kicking.
but i will play it by ear. if i feel tired and sore…i won’t.
i don’t need to commit to anything in this moment…other than doing what’s best for me.
have a great weekend kids 🙂
