This morning I had what I’m pretty sure was my first ever bona-fide migraine. I’ve been getting headaches once or twice a month ever since starting some new medication, but this was definitely the worst. It felt like someone had stabbed my right hemisphere, and that half of my brain was slowly swelling and pressing in on my eardrum and jaw. Every sound was magnified. I felt like I had tunnel vision. I took Tylenol and drank two big mugs of green tea, but it only got worse. I ended up going home for a two-hour nap, which helped a lot, but I’m still not back to full mental capacity.
So, in lieu of my usual eloquent thought-provoking comment-spawning awe-inspiring posts, I’m going to introduce you to the best song ever.
