Day 39/ Tired of this Migraine... and drama

Thursday, September 26, 2019

I still had a little of a migraine this morning, I didn't want it getting worse again so I took a nap. I woke up with a pain in my sinus area, and thought perhaps I'm coming down with something. I'll take a dayquil later. Got on the phone and was told a lot of gossip, none good, about my favorite nephew. I've always been his biggest cheerleader, and I'm not about to quit now. The deck has always been stacked against him, and no one from the family has really helped with that. Plus, if I've learned anything growing up in a small town, it's to take everything you hear with a TON of salt. I talked to my nephew, not about the gossip, just to see how he is doing, it is his deceased wife's birthday, so has to be a hard day for him, he's too young to be a widower with three young children, but, here he is.

Drama/gossip drains me, and I let it distract me, so I forgot to take the dayquil or my morning meds. So I'm tired, I'm drained, and now my head hurts again. I watched a show for a bit to get the stuff out of my head, but time slipped away and now I didn't get much at all of the things I wanted to get done today. My kids will be home soon and today is family art day. Or should I say girls art day as DH won't be joining in. I've got to tweak my schedule so I can see if I can get my rx for my migraine meds that I take daily upped. I can't go a whole month like this... Ah, got it moved to two weeks from now. That is much better. Hopefully I'll be able to get rid of this one, I'm convinced it is one that just keeps getting mild and then flaring up. Once I get fully rid of it, I am hoping to stay migraine free enough to do my cleaning, Ruth Soukup's Clutter Free Challenge, and learning on sewing and sewing the things I said I would.

I'm a little frustrated with an old friend. She's the one that had most of her colon taken out and has an ostomy bag. I told her I would get her a large print Bible and a book she wanted. Well, when I told her that her package had been delivered and her fiance could bring her the books today, she told me her Mom had gotten her the book I had bought her!! She still thanked me for it, but I'm frustrated that she knew I was getting it for her and she let her Mom get a copy for her. I don't know whether to insist she send the one I bought her back, or the one her Mom bought her. Trying to give her the benefit of the doubt and not be upset. She is in a lot of pain, and perhaps forgot. I must not let my frustrating morning cloud my thinking.

My head is hurting bad enough that I'm going to have to lay down. Or at least be in a dimly lit room. The kids will have homework, and if I'm not there for the homework, sometimes they don't do it.

Have a good Thirsty Thursday!!

    emoticon I really hope you can quiet your mind and get rid of that headache!

    I will tell you what FINALLY clicked for me re: what others say/do...The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. I have the book & an audio CD. I keep the CD in my car & listen whenever I feel I'm slipping back to my old ways.

    Most of the time, I now manage to keep my focus on what **I** control (because that's the only thing I can change).

    I can't control what others say or do, but I can decide how I will react. It's not easy, but life is MUCH better this way!

    Sorry there was a mix up with the book you bought your friend. If it isn't something you would read, just send it back for a refund or order a book for yourself that is the same price in exchange. You are doing well, so reward yourself with a book to help clear your mind when things are rough. You are in my prayers

    Well I am sure hoping that your day turned around and the headache is gone. I don't handle drama/gossip well either. It's not worth my time, energy or brain space. I hope today is going better for you!!

    I am sure that your friend just forgot you said that you would get her the book. Maybe you can return the one you bought? BTW, I ordered some of the Syntrax Nectar that you recommended - SO YUMMY! I am not a grape or cherry fan so I didn't try those. I did try Strawberry Mousse and Fuzzy Navel and they are both great. I find them sweet so I double the water and then add ice. It is so refreshing - I would never dream it was a protein drink, if I didn't know! I think I will try the lemonade next. Have a great night!

    Well, I'm sorry today hasn't worked out. You know, we have a thing in common-gossip and its drama just drain my energy, too! I cannot abide it. I am sorry you have the migraine and maybe a sinus headache on top of it, though, sheesh. I hope things lighten up for you this evening, and that you get peaceful rest. :-)
