The past few days I've really been pushing myself: brunch on Sunday, a full day of work and a night class on Monday. Yesterday I worked all day too and then went out with my mom that evening (She really wanted to go see the Downton Abbey movie). Today I was fully prepared to do another 8 hour work day followed by a 3 hour night class again.... but my fibro had other plans. I was really dizzy most of the morning. I worked through that and it finally passed. Only to be followed by a growing migraine that would not respond to my regular pain management strategies. I tried asking my supervisor if I could go home early... but she was offsite and didn't respond to my email before 5. So instead, I finished my work day, and bussed to the college (in the cold, without a jacket cuz I forgot it at home this morning) and got my homework and ask my teacher if I could be dismissed from class today. She allowed it and I got a ride home, where I had dinner and rested.
I took my migraine meds which finally gave me some relief! I'm still sore, but feel more like myself again. And I'd like to feel like myself again tomorrow too!
So I'm doing a bit of self-care. The cliche stuff. A face mask, a pore strip, some nice-smelling bath products. Cuz sometimes, after a long, hard day, a little pampering is exactly what's needed.
