Fog – a.k.a. Migraine postdrome

The Fog…That’s a pretty good way to describe it. Many of you know what it’s like to have a migraine because you’ve had one or two here and there. In 4 years I’ve had over 800. Somehow I find a way to work, live and function through them. I use the word “function” loosely on days like today. After 2 bad migraines in 2 days I find it difficult to concentrate, stay on task, keep my cool, etc.

On days like today, I find that everything irritates me and I’m very grateful that my family hasn’t killed me yet because over the last 4 years, I’ve spent more time in “the fog” than out of it.As I’m writing this I can’t tell you how I function because today is a struggle. Today I feel like I’m dealing with my seasonal depression times 10. Tomorrow it will be better…until another migraine hits.
