7 am – I wake up, my mind alert my soul at peace, I’m ready to face the day.
10 am – I feel the beginnings of a migraine, nothing I can’t handle.
11 am – The migraine is raging inside my skull – lights, sounds smells bringing ever-increasing pain.
Noon – Nausea sets in, my mouth is dry my brain on fire – am I coming down with something?
3 pm – I can take no more. I need my zen space and my bed – my day is not yet through, I must continue on.
5 pm – NAUSEA – I can feel it creeping up my throat, making my mouth water. RUN FOR THE BATHROOM! And I purge – tomato water comes hurling out of my mouth.
7 pm – Home at last – taking some Benadryl to relax and sleep…OR NOT! Nausea again! Run for the bathroom – more tomato water mixed with Benadryl.
8 pm – My bed is calling me persuading me to rest my head and enter the dream world. I don’t know whats wrong but sleep cures all ails.
4 am – PAIN! EXCRUCIATING PAIN! I’m ripped out of my dream to the reality of my uterus on fire! I moan and curl into a ball, trying futilely to fall back asleep. I cannot – I’m in too much pain.
5 am – The THC gods have granted me peace. The nausea, the pain the migraine are all abating and now I know what’s wrong with me.
Damn you Period!!!
