Today I write to you from bed… And not in a good way.
Last night I went out to dinner with my boyfriend’s family, and I managed to stay out past 8pm. *Insert gasp here*
Now, while that is perfectly normal for anybody with a nice healthy body not intent on screwing them over on a daily basis, for me that is inconceivable! My nightly migraines over the last 2 months have made it quite impossible to stay out past 6pm, and have even made people concerned for my mental health.
I mean hey, if your brain was throbbing against your skull and every little noise made your eyeball feel like an ice pick was going through it, I think you may be slightly irritable and in need of peace and quiet also… Not meaning to be captain obvious, but just saying!
So here I am, at 2:41 on a Wednesday afternoon, just having woken up after a 2.5 hour nap. Wanna know why? Because one hour of Pilates was too much for me after such a HUGE night of partying. *Rolls eyes*
I mean seriously, who nearly falls asleep doing ab curls? They’re not exactly what you call ‘easy’ or ‘relaxing’. But my body was experiencing that bone deep exhaustion and was ready for a nap, and it certainly wasn’t going to wait for anyone!
Okay, so why am I sharing this with you? It may be a boring day in the life of Laura, but it is an unfortunately common one. A reality that has forced me to suddenly take a few weeks off work just to cope with the pain and fatigue that plagues me. I am simply sharing this with you, so that you see me in real life, so that you see all who are struggling!
To those of you fighting to get through the day without a coma-nap… I see you, empathise with you, and I give a f**k. It’s okay to take a moment to rest, it’s okay to allow yourself time to heal.
Until next time!
