Mayo Clinic definition of migraine:
A migraine can be disabling — with symptoms so severe, all you can think about is finding a dark, quiet place to lie down. Up to 17 percent of women and 6 percent of men have experienced a migraine.
In some cases, these painful headaches are preceded or accompanied by a sensory warning sign (aura), such as flashes of light, blind spots or tingling in your arm or leg. A migraine is also often accompanied by other signs and symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine pain can be excruciating and may incapacitate you for hours or even days.
Kel’s definition of migraine:
Satan let loose a particularly perverse band of demons from the dark recesses of hell with a rusty saw to slowly cut open my skull and shove ten pounds of shattered glass directly into my brain. I’ll be honest…it hurt so badly that I cried. A lot. That just made it hurt worse.
As a result, I did not make my usual Wednesday post over at Publishing Renaissance. The worst seems to be over, though, so hopefully soon. Maybe.
