Bad Weather Plus Migraine Equals . . . Not Much

with 5 comments

Many of you have heard that most of Wisconsin is under a blizzard warning.  Southeastern Wisconsin hasn’t been hit that hard thus far, but we’ve had a great deal of rain in the past sixteen to eighteen hours . . . and now, it’s turned to snow.

Before the weather turned bad, I was able to get a great deal of editing done for a very big project I’ve been working on for a few months.  I’m now over 3/4 of the way through it, and it looks likely that I’ll be able to turn it in soon.

The weather shouldn’t affect me providing the power stays on, of course.  But one of the problems I have with huge weather systems is that they tend to set off a very bad headache, and that’s what I’m dealing with right now.

So everything that I’d hoped to do today — save my visit to the Asthma Clinic, which was accomplished — is likely to go by the boards, at least until I’ve had some decent rest.

I should be fine tomorrow (when I have internship hours scheduled), providing I’m sensible tonight and rest.

So I’m going to be sensible, stay home out of the nasty weather, and just do the best I can.

As for anyone else in Wisconsin, I hope they’ll be sensible, too — or at least be smart.

See you all tomorrow, when I should be able to get at least one book review up over at SBR.  (I had hopes to get three up this weekend; now that looks most unlikely.  Boo, hiss to that!)

  1. Ugh, I’m very migraine-prone as well. I’ve spent quite a bit of my time motionless and twisted into strange positions, because those positions lessen my headache. Hope it’s over very soon for you!

    • Thanks, Eurobrat, though I’m sorry you’re a fellow migraine sufferer. The weather in Wisconsin just isn’t very pleasant with the driving rain and then the snow on top of it . . . I hope wherever you are that it’s a bit more clement. 🙂

      And yes, I often search for one position that will bring relief, too — though everything hurts during a migraine and moving hurts badly also, sometimes getting into the right position can make an enormous positive difference.

      • I live on the West Coast, so one thing I never get to complain about is the weather 🙂 Right now, we’re having highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s at night, and we consider that “cold” and “wintery”, haha.

      • LOL to that. Though when I lived in San Francisco, we did have earthquakes to worry about and the occasional driving winter rain that wasn’t pleasant.

        Otherwise, the weather there was much better than it is here in the winter, no lie. Didn’t even have to wear winter coats all that much in San Francisco. 😉

      • Yeah, we talk about having to wear coats when the temps are down in the 50s, haha.
