Broken Brain Days
Wednesday, September 11, 2019
The tournament on Saturday...the grocery store on Sunday. Such little things I used to take for granted. Now I'm still feeling a setback in heightened symptoms on Wednesday! I was two Tylenol in before 11am! Those who know me well know that I am extremely sensitive meds. Pre-concussion, if I had a MIGRAINE LEVEL headache I might go to two ibuprofen. I would feel groggy for two days but it would take the migraine to tolerable levels. Two Tylenol and it's not even touching the headache, the sensory flooding, the mild vertigo? Ugh.
Dim light helps the flooding but full dark doesn't today. Weird. Not only do the symptoms change daily, sometimes what eases them does too.
I will be okay. I may have to redefined the word "okay" a few more times today but I will be okay. I guess I won't be going to tomorrow's game either. I need to be able to do the volunteer time at Saturday's yard sale for the Athletic's dept. at kiddo's school.
Positives. Must end with some positives.
Hubby has been all sorts of productive around the homestead and supportive to me at the same time. Bringing me dinner in the bedroom when I couldn't handle the TV but didn't want to spoil the kid's TV time since she'd finished all her schoolwork early/on time for once, making sure I get avocados every trip to the store for the effect they have on my head, telling the dog to stay with me so she keeps an eye on me whenever he's not here...all of it.
