I would like to wish all my readers a very happy Monday. I am not feeling overly jovial today; actually the mere act of typing is excruciatingly painful, as is all sound, light, and sadly written words (in fairness, spoken words are painful as well). My proposed reading schedule this week was something I could have accomplished, and filled with books I was looking forward to reading and as I type this I realise it will be impossibility to read them all this week. I have heard it said that all things are possible, and to an extent I agree, however being 2 books behind and it is only Monday does not bode well. My aura (not the new-age sort) rather the “it probably is a migraine of such an intensity it will require IV treatment or another stroke”, both require a trip to the ER. Coupled with the usual mundane complaints of being nauseated, having both photophobia and phonophobia are just three more indicators that I shall slip further behind in my plans for the week. I always thought if I could put how I feel into words it would help others understand, yet I cannot describe the pain, there simply are no words. For those who have this sort know exactly what I am referring to and know there is no actual relief for me, just a lessening of pain with time, time I needed this week for other activities. For those who cannot fathom it, consider yourselves extremely fortunate, my husband falls into this category, in 42 years he has never had a headache, something I cannot fathom and if I am honest, I am quite jealous.
My point? It is Monday and I am woefully behind. If history is any indicator, it could be a good 72 hours before I can read. Fortunately I had today’sIt’s Monday What Are you Reading? queued as well as tomorrow’s Teaser Tuesday, but alas no reviews, I am learning optimism does not get me far. I am not writing for pity or sympathy, for this is my life and at the moment I do not like the pain, I accept it is they way my brain works. I am merely writing to let readers know why I may not comment straightaway or make my usual rounds on It’s Monday What Are You Reading? and Teaser Tuesday (the two meme’s I adore). I am here, but not here. I may be in hospital I may not (yes computers are allowed in-yet not in neurology for my complaint). I have a call in to my husband and time will tell. As my head allows, I will approve comments, visit blogs, and comment myself. I do not think my aphasia has slipped in yet, although I could read this post days from now only to become horrified. My goal for this week is to getting well enough to read. I have a couple of tours at the end of the week and I do not plan to miss my deadlines.
It is days like this I realise it would be excellent to have some sort of migraine graphic, then words would not be needed. Obviously, I do not have a clever graphic.
I hope everyone reading this is doing well, enjoying the fine weather (I have the air-conditioning on) and having a lovely Monday. I will be around commenting as soon as I am able.
