I made it- Good news and paying the price.

Post  sconesail on Sun 11 Aug 2013, 6:12 am

Hi All,


I actually made it to my best friend's wedding and on a family trip to the mountains! cheers 

I flew up to the wedding with Dora, and had no trouble. I was a bridesmaid and was able to stand or sit through the ceremony! The bride is one of my best friends from college and went to great llengths to make sure I was in the wedding. Instead of processing down the aisle, one of the groomsmen brought me and Dora in from the side. There was also a chair right there so that I could sit if needed. (We pinned a great big bow to Dora's vest- next to the dress, it was the most talked about piece of attire at the wedding.) I had a great time. I was fine through most of the wedding, but once they turned on strobe lights at the reception I kept fainting. Fortunately, my date- also an old friend from college- knew when I needed to leave. So we left, but I had a good time.
,
I then met the rest of my family in the Mountains and was able to spend a few fun days with my aunt, uncle, parents, and eldest brother. (This brother gets the whole fainting thing, my other brother doesn't understand it at all.) But it was nice.

I have an absolutely horrendous migraine right now. I know that I am paying the price for a few good days. I hate paying the price. It seems like I basically work on a formula trying not to get a bad one, but get it no matter what after a big event. I really haven't felt like doing anything since I got home on Wed. I still don't feel like doing much of anything. Fortunately, the only thing I have to do today is watch some children in the evening for an hour or so. I may just curl up with Dora, a book, take the meds, and rest. I have an appointment with my neuro tomorrow maybe he can help.

Anyway, I just thought I'd post some good news for once.

Pain free days,
sconesail

Dear Scone, I was so hoping you would make it through the wedding and a vacation. I think these small victories are what keep us going through the rest of the bad stuff! Sounds like you had a beautiful day. Sorry you had to pay the price, though:cry: . That is what happened to me with my daughter's wedding. Great day of, bad week after. I hope the Neuro helps you out tomorrow.
Hugs,
Cindy

Yay, good for you! Travel is so hard. I can't really do it.
