On the Bumpy Side of the Road

For the last two and  a half days, including the nights, Grandma J had a long lost friend visit.  You know how you can forget all about someone who has a profound effect on your life until they show up?  Then once they are back in your life for just a short time...like minutes you don't know how you ever forgot!

You know how time can cause you to have a brain fog, or selective memory syndrome? Grandma J doesn't know either. 

She thought she had left her friend back in California because she hadn't seen or heard from her since retiring......but she found her in Texas, on Easter Sunday.

Easter morning she arrived and the memories of avoiding sounds and light  came rushing back.  Grandma J almost forgot how  numerous encounters hugging the John were part of the full package.




Her friend's name is Migraines.....

Today it's off to the doctor for some relief, because Tylenol and  ice cream don't cut it.

I too suffer from migraines. They are no fun. I hope you start feeling better soon.

Oh no! I am praying, praying, praying for you today! Sending you lots of love! Dear Jesus, please take away Grandma J's horrible headaches. Amen!

I'm in your club. Sadly.
Try Zomig ZMT 5mg. It helps within 45 minutes for me. I hope you feel better soon.
Your Friend, m.

Oh goodness, G.J (I must have dropped into "rapping" or something there for a sec!) We have a mutual friend that we both despise? Let's drop her like a hot potato!

What on earth brought her to Texas when she has been up in VA for years and years? I'm glad you're going to find relief and glad you know how to "spell" it, too.
D-o-c-t-o-r.

You are one of the funniest writers I read, by the way. I love your sense of humor. And with "friends" like ours-that's hard to hold on to.

I'm so sorry! I know those are debilitating, and I feel bad you're suffering. :(

With friends like that you don't need any enemies. I used to have migraines. I haven't had any for several years now. I hope you feel better really soon. Hugs to you.

One word Grandma J....."Imitrex."
Can't live without it here...because working with 25 five year olds and migraines don't mix!

I hope you are feeling better!!

Arghh! I'm so sorry. I have never had one (knock on wood), but I have heard they are miserable. Take care of yourself!

Oh, my friend! I hope you have some relief pronto!

AAAARGH! My remedy is to drink a large cup of black coffee as soon as the twinkling lights appear in the corners of my eyes .. it doesnt stop the headache but it lets me stall it long enough to get into bed for when it slams me .. eons ago when I had them in clusters the doc gave me a med that worked but damned if I can think of the name of it now .. I hope you get something to help .. xo

Poor GJ!! Hope this is over soon. I hear milk causes migraines but not sure of that.
