A Cocktail of Disaster

When will I learn my lesson?  Or am I one of those people that will learn really slowly and think that I am immune to a cocktail of disaster?

Another potential migraine crisis aborted somewhat, though not completely intact. A faux pas by drinking coffee + having stress + lack of sleep = cocktail of disaster.  If I hadn’t drank coffee, and had stress eliminated from my life + better sleep I’d have avoided the familiar throbbing presence of the start of a migraine attack. But I didn’t avoid any of the triggers and bam as if on queue I had a migraine attack starting, and in order to combat it I had to act fairly quickly and take my rescue remedy.

I have now avoided 2 potential migraine attacks.  Since April by the grace of God. I took the necessary precaution by resting, sleeping, migraine medicine, drinking enough water.  I do not want to go through another attack not like April, when it was one of the worst attacks i have had in a long time.  I was a gone burger for at least 6 days.  After that attack I eliminated coffee from my diet until today when I thought I was immune to it, only to quickly realise that it was a mistake on my part.

I can live without coffee.  I need to learn to eliminate stress from my life, and I need to learn to relax before I sleep so that I can have a full night of uninterrupted sleep.  Maybe have one of those old fashioned alarm clocks? And switch my phone off permanently at night.  It is all a steep learning curve, but with the grace of God I will get there eventually.

One day, I am sure I will be free from migraines, as I have been pretty much free from them when I learn to avoid the triggers in my life that can cause them.  Lord willing.
