For the first time in quite a while I missed posting a Six Word Friday poem. Friday’s word was WAVE, and I had some good ideas. However, Friday was Day 7 of a seven day migraine siege. The dictionary definition of siege is Blockade -and that’s certainly what it does. Blocks me from getting anything done as it drops me in my tracks. I do take Imitrex for them, but even when the pain abates for a while, I can still feel my brain doing odd things inside my skull.
According to the US National Institute of Health, “Migraine and epilepsy are episodic disorders that share many clinical features and underlying pathophysiological mechanisms.” The headache, therefore is a symptom of the underlying problem.
Always knew my brain was a little off center.
