I have been getting pretty bad headaches for the past week and a half at least. Last Monday I actually experienced a migraine for the first time. Not a fun experience. It started off with my eye acting all funky and after telling Bo, with him commenting that it might be a migraine, my right eye started hurting big time. Then came the pain behind the nose and other eye, then the nausea. Bo actually had to skip class because there was no way I could take care of two kids with that pain. Not long after we decided he should stay home, I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting the toilet. Good thing I had cleaned it earlier. It went away later on in the evening, but since then I have had headaches almost nonstop. Every time it gets a little intense I start freaking out. I'm so worried that I'll get another migraine!
I don't know what's going on. I think it might be the birth control. A friend mentioned that maybe it's mold. The whole island is covered in it. Someone else commented that maybe its just the stress of the kids. I hope it's not the kids. I've actually been able to handle them well lately. We're actually having fun and getting out! So what is it? I'm hoping it's the pill and that once I get off it my problems will go away. I definitely don't want it to be the mold because that's just scary.

I have heard birth control does that to some people. that would be scary if it was the mold, but I wouldn't put that on the back burner just yet...good luck. I hope you figure it out and that all will be well.

I can't think of anything clever to say. I tried. I started to type like 5 different things.

Nothing is coming to me.

If it's a different bc than you've used before, it could definately be that. Good luck and hope those headaches stop!

I am so sorry. How frustrating. I hope you are able to find some relief and figure out what is causing it. Good luck.

GET BETTER!! It's so hard to take care of kids when you're sick. The hospital should give you a nanny when you're sick. Don't you think that would be great? Anyways, hopefully it's getting better.

I hope the headaches stop soon. How awful! I don't think I've ever had a migraine. I'm very sorry.
