Hello, Pollen. You are killing me.

We walk K to school each day.  I saw "we" because 98% of the time, Hubs is able to join us.  We walked this morning and as soon as we got back, I got a migraine.  Before we left, I took Allegra (Rx strength.)  When I started with the migraine, I took what Hubs refers to as my "concoction."  I take an Advil, a Tylenol, and 2 baby aspirins.  That generally does it.

It didn't touch it.

An hour later, I followed it up with an Advil Cold & Sinus.

That didn't do anything.

I pulled out a Coke and rolled a lavender headache essential oil roller all over my forehead, temples, up the back of my neck and into my hair.

Praise God!  It started to let up.  I had a haze for a while and that feeling like I thought that maybe I would vomit, but I wasn't certain.  I had life to live and I wasn't light sensitive with this one, so I rocked it out.

I also watered it to death, meaning I drank a whole boatload of water.


We went for another walk tonight because, well, this winter weight is not melting off on its own.  Add another 2 1/2 miles to the 2 we did earlier.  My eyes were burning, but my 24 hour Allegra still held.  I looked the pollen count up this evening.  Surprisingly, it was high!  :much sarcasm:

We're suffering here.  We can't open the windows or we would all surely curl up in the fetal position from the intense cranial pain.

Welcome spring.  Rain.  Rain is very good.  It rinses this out of the air.  At least the cars aren't yellow-- yet.

Here it comes and it's gonna be hell...:o( I'm SO not looking forward to the daily un-yellowing of my house.

I'm glad you were finally able to kick the migraine's patootie. Ugh.

I've been harping on the boys for weeks to start their nose spray. It's supposed to be awful. Hope you are feeling better!!
