People say a lot- I say a lot- things like "Where did the time go?" or "It is already February! Where'd January go?"
But lately, I feel as if I've been losing time, whole chunks of days just gone. Well, I know where that time's gone- into darkened rooms and into aching muscles with a migraine. I'm relatively lucky in so much as someone with debilitating headaches can be- I'm not one of those people who go temporarily blind or get violently ill, but when I get one... the migraine tends to invite all its friends and have a party in my head for a week or two. And even after the series of headaches are gone I am still ill from the after effects (called the "postdrome"), so that finally, after both migraine and postdrome are finished with me, I feel like a baby deer- all shaky in the knees while taking those first steps (back) into the world.
Luckily on those type of days, I've got my new (and old) favorites to rely on in the wardrobe department. Yes, you just saw this Joules sweater, but I've been practically living in it, it is so soft and warm. The rest is of the outfit is a perfect formula for cheering one up with a bright red hat and a skirt after the weather has forced one into pants for too long. Its also an outfit that's slouchy for comfort and that makes me happy too.
Do you get migraines? I've gotten migraines for years, and while I'm able to prevent and control them so much better now, advice is always welcome (especially about the postdrome stage!) Meanwhile, it is time to roll up my sleeves and try to get caught up on life!
