Some what cooler...
It’s been getting cooler and so I’ve pulled out my tights, a lovely woolen grey and white skirt and my lovely vintage oxfords. Normally Dunedin gets a warm snap at the end of February so I’m looking forward to that.
Yesterday I was sick – I woke up with the fourth migraine I’ve ever had in my life. The first time I ever got a migraine was my first year at university, I initially got what I call ‘sparkly eyes’ (lots of random colour and sparkles in your vision, and it’s kinda hard to see anything). The sparkles lasted for about 10minutes and then went away, I then went to class and sat in the middle of a huge lecture theatre (luckily up the back) and about half way into the lesson I started feeling like I was about to vomit, so packed up all my stuff and left with the whole room staring at me - it would have been more embarrassing if I threw up in there though!!. It took me a while to get home on a normal 10minute walk because of all the stops next to bushes that I had to make. I eventually made it to my room and put my head in a bucket and then the headache started. Migraines are just the worst kind of headache, you can’t move or do anything except lay there, and no matter how much medication you take, it doesn’t take the edge off.
I always feel a bit pathetic when I’m sick, I feel like I should just snap out of it especially if it’s on a work day. I’m not a slacker when it comes to my job and I feel like if I’m sick then I’m slacking off and making everyone else do my jobs – I told everyone that I would be checking emails from home and that I would come in in the afternoon if my nausea subsided, but my awesome team told me not to come in even if I was feeling better and that they were coping just fine and gave me strict instructions to stay in bed.
When others are sick I’d do just about anything for them if they thought it would make them better, but I just don’t have the same sympathy for myself. Is that strange?
Ps) I’ve updated my links, if you are still not on there and think you should be (I think you should be) then please let me know!!
