Yeeeaaahhh…Posted on Monday, December 31st, 2007 @ 11:14am » permalink
So… as of tomorrow I'll have been doing this site (in one form or another) for eight years. A lot of people don't know that. Weird. I'm still really trying to hold out for 10. We'll see.
Anyway, I had originally planned to get back to all-out posting this week, but yesterday I had a crippling migraine and was basically unable to function for the vast majority of the day, so I got nothing done (and I generally do all of my writing on the weekends). I've been suffering from migraines for about two years now, but lately… man, they've been life-ruiningly miserable. I mean, they've been bad before, but they were actually sort of getting "better" for a little while. "Better" as in "I was only having two or three a month". But for the last few weeks I've been getting them damn near every two or three days… and the (extremely expensive) pills I pop aren't really working as well as they used to either. It fuckin' sucks. Especially because I'm more sound-sensitive than light-sensitive, so I don't want to listen to music when I'm in migraine mode.
It's pathetic. I can't jog. Stepping off a curb or coughing or sneezing can set me off. Shit, lately, even tapping my feet (which I usually do incessantly) or nodding my head can do the trick. I'm in hell.
If anyone has any bright ideas, I'm all ears. And yes, I've already spent thousands of dollars on various tests to ensure that I'm allegedly not going to drop dead of cancer or an aneurysm or anything "serious". But I'll try anything at this point!
In the meantime, here's a semi-appropriate old gem I hadn't heard in a good eight years or so. I loved this song in 1995, but sold the disc somewhere along the way:
I'm not sure if anything else on the CD still stands the test of time today, but I just grabbed the entire album off eMusic this morning before my downloads for this month expired. I guess I'll find out…
