Migraine upon Migraine

Sorry folks, I've been a bit quiet and I know some of you have been asking how my job interview went. Well, I didn't get the job but maybe that's just as well given the absolute nightmare I had getting there and back on public transport. Rural bus services simply aren't reliable enough to make travelling more than a few miles a viable option so I'm back to job searching but looking closer to home - until I'm driving at least. I was a little disappointed as it would have been a lovely place to work, but it gave me experience of having an interview and clarified a few things for me so I'm taking something positive from it.

I've been plagued with migraines ever since though, and when I haven't had a migraine my body's thrown a nice, simple, bog standard headache at me instead... y'know, just in case I get bored.
I don't think it's really anything to worry about, I've had migraines for years and I do occasionally go through patches like this. It'll pass, I'm sure but just to be on the safe side I'm seeing my G.P later this week. In the meantime I'm keeping my head down... quite literally. It's hard to lift my poor head off the pillow some days let alone venture into blogland. I'll pop by whenever feel up to it and keep my fingers crossed the doctor has a solution because I'm starting to think seriously about decapitation ;)


  1. So glad to see you back again - I'd wondered for ages what had become of you. Re the migraines - I used to get them a lot pre-menopause and found acupuncture really helped. Private treatment is of course expensive but some GPs offer it now. Good luck with job hunting/driving test.

  2. Oh I am so sorry about the migraines. Do hope that you feel better soon. Changes in weather trigger mine, and my dr prescribed relpax which usually helps. Hope that your checkup goes ok.
    Sorry about the job, but it sounds like it would have been a rough commute. Hoping that you find something closer to home.

  3. I've never had a migraine but I've heard of their debilitating effects by friends. I have heard a lot of good coming from yoga and the use of essential oils to help in the relief of migraines. I'm not sure if you've tried either, but I have found success in their use for other ailments so hope this is helpful advice!
