Pirate Prompt,Racism & Migraines..Oh My!

The Prompt per The Confusing Middle this week is the word, ‘Pirate’. He posts a word every week to write about. I suggest you check out the site…After you read this…I don’t have all night to wait, you know… Anyway, so this week’s word is Pirate because I believe ‘Talk Like A Pirate Day” is coming up. Personally, that’s not my thing. Plus, how can we still have that when they won’t even make ‘Peter Pan’ anymore?.. probably due to Pirate violence. Now, give me ‘Talk Like A Valley Girl Day’ or ‘Talk In Pig-Latin Day’ and I would be totally into those! Heck, I talk Valley Girl pretty much anyway since I am from California. I never actually lived in The Valley but the lingo is still here. Technically, I think Las Vegas is a Valley, I mean, we are surrounded by Mountains.

Don’t know if I mentioned but my Park Manager is Racist. She does not like people who don’t speak English and is apparently rude to them, plus, comments behind their backs to others. This better not cause a problem for the people buying my house! They don’t speak much English. But, they do already have a place here, so I am hoping that will help them get approved.

Started a Migraine last night which went all night and didn’t quit until this afternoon after a 2nd Imatrex. Luckily, I take Imatrex by halves so it only equalled one actual pill. It was horrible though, and not only on the opposite side of my head then usual but was mainly by my eye.

Oh well, I survived and am living to tell about it.

4 Days Free!

Of a Migraine, that is!

The one I had this morning didn’t surprise me. I was up late with fireworks and had to turn the music loud and watch tv with subtitles, so the cats didn’t freak out.

Monkey turned Psycho and bit me twice

and Susy would hear a firework go off and look at me to judge my reaction.

Tara didn’t really care.

Anyway, I usually get Migraines 2-3 times a week equalling to around 14 a month, but the amount usually drops in the Summer! So, the fact I went 4 straight days without one, is awesome!

I am in a Migraine Group on Facebook and one girl gets like 17 a month! When you are only allowed 9 Imatrex per month, that can be tough. Good thing I take them half at a time.

This is something I live with, so, I am not complaining. It’s my main Disability, and a life I am used to. I really don’t remember a life without them, although, I know I had it because these Migraines started in my 20’s. I could go back on Hormones and see if that helps, but that means started periods again, so No Thank You!

Without A Migraine…Almost

I don’t have Migraines every day, but I do get them a lot and anything out of the ordinary can trigger them.  Like the Power Outtage that started a few hours ago and it’s getting cold.  C. offered to come get me but I am a big girl and can handle this. I have blankets and a soft, plush, long one piece if it gets to cold.  Plus, the Imatrex should knock me out and hopefully it will be back on in a few hours. 

Other then that,  next week we are going to study Philemon in Bible Study and I am going to lead. 

Did some sorting of paperwork today; not much, but I can tell the difference.

Plus, my new toaster arrived. Now, I just have to get bread, bagels and jam or cream cheese. The toaster isn’t purple only because I can’t afford it yet. They charge double the regular toaster just for the color.

How I Am

It’s almost two in the morning and I woke up from having the Migraine from Hell, this afternoon. It sucks because anything can cause them….Stress, Weather, Health,…and your whole day is shot. It took 2 Imatrex or a full 100 mg pill to get rid of this one; which is rare.

I bought and made some horrible soup which I seriously don’t recommend. It’s Matzo Ball Soup by Streit. It is Gluten-free but it turned out tasting like salty, potato soup. When I say “Salty’ I mean it was like a bowl full of salt! Salt is not good for my kidneys. I put the leftovers in tbe refrigerator but unless there is something I can use to cut down the salt, I will have to throw it away.
