Weekend Migraine

ve had a migraine since Friday. I left work early Friday and the migraine lingered all weekend. At times, it wasn’t as painful, but at other times, it was excruciating. Everywhere I laid my head felt like I was lying on a rock. The only thing I could do to help was try and sleep. I hope it’s better today. I’ll be the only one at the museum. Our secretary doesn’t work on Monday, our other curator is away at a conference, and my boss’s two children have COVID.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe

    Hope you had a better day. Didn’t get an evening post, so I’m commenting here to check in on you. I’m a natural worrier, and your posts are part of my routine. I notice when they’re missing and pray that it’s something simple.

      Thank you for checking on me. It hasn’t been a good day. I had to go to work but my migraine was worse today. By the time I got home, I could barely stand the pain. With a combination of several different therapies, I am finally feeling more human again. I still have a migraine, but it’s not quite as bad.
