Life With a Migraine

Life With a Migraine
carrie1977, Oct 23, 2018
Journaling: This one was a bad one. I really wanted to just curl up in a ball and cry but even that hurt.

The Fitbit screenshot shows how many hours I spent sleeping. Attempted to get up at 9:00am. Back to sleep at 12:30pm to 5:30pm. Woke up for a bit and back in bed for the night by 7:00pm and woke up the next morning at 5:45am which is much more like me. I felt better the next day but just sort of felt like I had a hangover. Migraine hangovers are a very real thing.

      So sorry you suffer with migraines. I have trouble coping with a "normal" headache...I can't imagine. Your page depicts it so well...wish I could say "beautifully," but that doesn't seem like quite the right word for this! You know what I mean!

      i'm always amazed at how well art can convey things we can't see and this is one of those pages - everything from the colours and messy mix of paints and layers (which is perfect!) to the placement and cut-out and angled words - this page makes me feel and that is a testament to how well you have created this (glad to see you got some dark blue deep sleep as well though, the red patches on those sleep graphs are my nemesis!)

      ugh. Migraines are horrible and they're one of those things that people truly can't understand unless they've experienced one. While I absolutely hate that you deal with migraines, I have to agree with Justine: this is such a great page to show that frustration and the "swear words" (what do you call the punctuation used to represent swear words? Do they have a name?) are perfect, too. Congrats on the Froggy Fave!

      Thank you @Carol K. I hope you are feeling better. (HUGS)
      Thank you @bellbird ! Sometimes a little bit of scrap therapy just helps to get the frustration out. And, thank you for the Froggy Fave!
      Thank you @Tree City ! I have no idea what those swear word symbols are called but I'm sure there is a technical name for them. LOL!

      @MrsPeel Thank you, my sweet Cynthia ! I know my migraine a couple times a month doesn't even compare to what you deal with on a daily basis so I appreciate your sweet comments. :bk
