TAKING A FEW DAYS...

Well, after a routine medical procedure that involved "twilight sleep" and the drug concoction that causes that, I'm having some issues with thinking.  I seem to know what I need to do but can't seem to finish up anything with anything more than a minimal of effort.  So better to take a few days off until my head clears and my blood pressure is higher than 100/59 (which is where it's been running so no wonder I don't feel "all there"). 

Unfortunately, 2012 has seen the migraines return, too.  I've had 4 this month so far :(

So I'm going to be taking a few days off, just resting, reading, watching the Australian Open tennis matches and trying to get myself back in fighting shape again.

Have a good weekend.

Jeez, Rhonda, Take it easy and feel better soon. There's not much worse than migraines. Will watching the tennis ball going back and forth hurt? Seriously?

Vicki Holdwick said...

Oh, I so feel for you. I had a migraine four years ago that lasted almost3 months. I've been taking Cymbalta daily since then and so far so good.

I'm enjoying the tennis, too. I'll be thinking of you.

Oh dear...Feel better soon, Rhonda. Enjoy the rest as much as you are able; I know the migraines provide no rest.

I so appreciate the comments and good wishes, Mick, Carol, Dee, Vicki and Ginny.

Taking some time is what I need right now, I think - that, and a stiff drink or two (or perhaps just sleep until spring)! Thanks for the kind thoughts, Cindi, Gary, Lisa and Sherry.

I'm sure I'll be back to "normal" soon :)
