Migraine Girl

During a bad migraine flair up, I frequently feel like my head is on fire, so I drew some new Migraine Girls to reflect this feeling.

New Migraine Girl

I drew her after a bad migraine when my vision was really distorted during the pain.

Migraine Monster-Voodoo Doll

During a bad pain flair up, I frequently feel like someone is sticking pins in the head of a voodoo doll, so I drew this little guy.

Working Virtual

So I've been working from home for the last three months since my employer turned my office into a virtual office. I think it has helped my migraines with the lack of flourescent lighting, the lack of noise, and no horrible smells to contend with. Also, I can control my own temperature and I'm eating better on my lunches.

It has been nice not having co-workers giving me dirty looks because I called in sick with a migraine the previous day or having a co-worker thinking that I'm sleeping on the job because I closed my eyes for a minute at my desk because of the pain in my head. I've been missing more partial days with pain flair ups than entire days so that's been helping my paycheck.

The only disadvantage is the cabin fever from being cooped up in the house all the time. I've been trying to avoid it with mental health trips to stores and restaurants before work and long walks around my neighborhood on my lunches. Still I miss the social aspect at work with the people I did like. Also, I thought this would reduce my migraines a lot more than it has.
