My decision making process for taking migraine medicine goes something like this.
I’m in a lousy low mood.
But it’s probably not a migraine.
Coffee hasn’t helped.
But it might not be a migraine.
My vision is blurred.
But it still might not be a migraine.
My head feels pressurised.
I don’t think it’s a migraine.
Computer screen is too bright.
I’m just tired, I doubt it’s a migraine.
Using black text on a dark grey background is still too bright.
It’s not a migraine!
I’m wearing sunglasses.
I’m hiding in a darkened room wearing sunglasses trying desperately to think or read.
No no no no no not a migraine.
I feel sick.
Coloured lights are floating across my vision.
I take Imigran.
Oh! It WAS a migraine!
