The morning after a migraine is difficult. The pain is dramatically less, but still present. The confusion and body aches are at a peak. Why am I trying to write anything after my migraine last night? Well, I want to have a resource, a protocol, or at least some ideas for coping the “day after migraine”.
1. Make a pot of herbal tea. Something that sounds good like vanilla rooibos, African Nectar or peppermint.
2. Have something to eat. Low or no sugar is best and have protein. Poached eggs and toast. Scrambled egg breakfast sandwich. Mama always wanted dairy, like cottage cheese.
3. Don’t strain your eyes. Don’t write a blog post. Refrain from social media, reading, knitting. Aunt Sandi recommends laundry, gardening (with a hat and sunglasses), dusting, baking/cooking something you don’t need a recipe for. If you don’t want to move get an audio book. Take breaks!
4. Don’t sabotage yourself. Yes, things need to be done, but stressing out over it will just lead to another migraine. Accept help. Ask for help. Prioritize!
