Yesterday I got a call literally about 5 minutes after I’d taken my imitrex pill, grabbed a cup of tea and announced I was heading upstairs to my darkened room to rest, stating, “Geeze, I don’t know why lately I’m getting slammed with these every day all of a sudden, I gotta go lie down!” So my friend from work calls – now mind you IT’S MY DAY OFF – and she wants me to come in and keep her company (??????) while she gets work done – suggesting I could also get my work done – as it’s end of the month crunch time. No, I tell her, I don’t really want to, and besides, it’s my day off. “Please?” No, I don’t feel well. “Please, I’ll buy you lunch!” “No, seriously, I don’t feel well, I have a migraine, I just took my meds, I’m going to go lie down!” – Her reply? “Oh, you always use that excuse!? My reply? “I need to stop talking now. I’m going to go lie down. Good bye.” And I hung up.
I wanted to strangle her. She’s asking for help, I can see that – but to say something like that to me? Really?
I went a little while with no headaches, but horrendous back pain the last few weeks, and I was supremely grateful. Now the headaches are back, every single day, and I don’t know why. Comparing the two types of pain, I can honestly say I would rather have the back pain and the problems walking than this. Kill me now. Just kill me. I’d rather be dead. And she says this is an excuse??? I want to strangle someone. I’m so mad. And I feel like I want to cry. I hate this. God I hate this.
