Yep – it’s that time of the year again for me. Migraine from hell time. Actually it happens more often than once a year, so I guess it’s technically one of those times of year for me.
But I think you get what I’m saying.
Today is the aftermath of a three day migraine. No amount of sleeping (or tylenol) could help me. Don’t suggest other drugs, I’m pregnant. Can’t take them. Not even coffee worked the first couple of days. It’s also very difficult to maintain an appetite whilst rolling around in agony trying to hide from any type of light source.
You can probably imagine that my writing motivation took a severe nose dive over the weekend. You’d be right. Regardless of how much I might want to edit. Editing through a migraine yields one of two results and sometimes a combination of both (and yes, I know this because I’ve tried before):
- The edits are either so bad, that you have to redo them again, thus defeating the process
- The migraine gets worse and worse until you pass out/throw up
So – I only managed to get through 11% this weekend. I’m still holding out hope that I can finish TDP2’s second draft in June, but I’m not going to stress about it, or I’ll just curse myself with more migraines. And people who know me, know that’s how I roll 😉
June goals, while still on track, are probably suffering a slight set back and may not be complete. Silly baby brain.
The migraine from hell started as a niggling headache when I sat down early Saturday to watch Prometheus with hubby.
I should preface this by saying: I avoided any and all articles, trailers or internet hype about it. I ADORE space movies. I’m a sci-fi geek – what can I say. And just like way back when with Event Horizon – I walked into the theatre with NO PRECONCEPTIONS whatsoever.
Wow. I need to see more movies like that. I had NO CLUE it was well… what it was. If you don’t know, I don’t want to spoil it. Suffice it to say, we got to the end and I was like OH! Yeah, clueless me, right?
But damn I loved that movie. Really, truly loved it. Except for the headache part, that was horrible by the time we left and laid me flat until I woke up this morning.
If you take away the migraine, my weekend was great (lol), although I only managed to play about 2.5 hours of GW2 beta through a migraine haze before giving up (and no, not all at once – THAT’S how bad my head was).
How was your weekend? Do you know when no amount of motivation is going to help your brain accomplish what you want, and stop so it doesn’t defeat the purpose? Have you seen any good movies lately?
