I woke up today with a nasty migraine (not unusual) and the sinking feeling that I had a full day with meetings at work, physical therapy, a night class, and the usual rigamarole of 2 school-aged children. So I got up and began the usual morning routine, plus migraine meds, to see if it would fade away. No such luck.
But here’s where I know I’m not normal — I wandered around the house feeling sick and nauseous, debating if I could make it through my day. I don’t think this would be a debate for just about any normal person! Pounding headache and nausea? I’m staying home and cancelling my meetings.
But for me, a lot of my days start with this debate. How bad do I feel and what can I handle today? It’s always a judgement call. But these days, I’m opting to stay home more rather than be unkind to myself.. . .
Does anybody else struggle with this debate?
