Third day on the job



It went sort of like this: I wake up ungodly early to drive to my first photo shoot two hours away! Arrive, help with photo shoot. Fun, fun! Start getting sick. The mother of all migraines sets in and I'm escorted to Prompt Care. I sign up, but can't wait for the doctor, so I go sleep in the back of the car. Get woken up by a Madison co-worker saying something to the fact that I need to stay at the photo shoot. Go back to photo shoot. Photo people say I need to go home, silly me, I'm sick. Can't stay curled up in the back of the car forever, start to drive home. Get another call from Milwaukee co-worker. She tells me stop where ever I am, she's coming to rescue me (she's only a half hour away). I cry, amazed that anyone knew I was in such pain. My supervisor picks up Andrew at school and drives half-way to meet us. I transfer cars and I'm driven home.

If you've never had a migraine, I'm sure this story will sound ridiculous. If you have, you'll know how incredible it felt to know that I was rescued half-way to hell.

Anyway, I wanted to let you know why I didn't write yesterday! I wanted to post this beautiful image from IreneSuchocki, to show you there's great beauty in the fuzzy lines. Fuzzy lines are all you see with migraines.

I'm back to bed now. Sending love your way!

First time visiting, and by golly do I know what you mean about migraines. And people who've never had them can't comprehend. they think it's another word for headache!

Oh Julia...what a rough day! Sounds like you landed yourself some nice new coworkers though. Hope today is a better day.

oh Julia, what a nightmare! I get migraines too so I know how you must have felt. How wonderful that you had some help, a lot of people don't realise how they can just floor you. How annoying to get one on only your third day, I do hope you feel back to normal today. Lots of good wishes to you

Oh my little Otter! If I had a car and was in the Badger area, I would have rescued you :) I have never had a migraine and never want to!

Do your migraines usually last long?

I get them myself too, so I know how you felt!
