Migraines, Katarr Kanticles & Too Much To Do!

Yet again, struck down by a migraine. This time it was at work. In fact, this is the first time that I’ve had one start at work, which would be horrible enough if it wasn’t for the fact that I have some really awesome colleagues who helped me get in touch with my other half and go home before they soldiered on without me.

Of course, time off work means less money. And when I’m ill it’s not as if I can get some writing done either. So yeah, I got to spend two or three days completely out of it and feeling very fuzzy mentally.

Thankfully the other symptoms (like vomiting water, pain, getting my words mixed up & light sensitivity) had all passed halfway through the second day. And I got to watch the little fellow in the picture above feeding at my window. I have two robins (he has a girlfriend, I think), two wood pigeons and a blackbird that visit at the minute, which is lovely. They don’t seem to care how vague I look when I have a migraine, either.

Grindstone, Writing, Creativity, & Future Plans

So, it’s back to work for me. At the day job anyway. I’ve spent my weeks off relaxing and spending more time with Howard Bear. Sadly that came to an end at the beginning of this week as he had to go back to the grindstone, too. It’s been especially hard adjusting to him not being home so much this time for some reason.

I wish we could spend more time together more often, but alas our work is so very different that we usually spend a lot of time apart. One day, I hope it won’t be like that, but for now it is and, just like many couples, we’ll have to deal with that.

However, that doesn’t make it any easier to bear.
