A couple weeks ago the stomach flu attacked me. Everyone else had it for about two days. Mine lingered and keeps coming back in waves. I've called off work the last two days and I was REALLY looking forward to my December paycheck, which will now be smaller. (once a month pay and one month behind) It's kicked off my migraines and now I'm in something I haven't experienced since I lived in Ohio years ago...the chronic "aura" phase where the migraine is in the background threatening and there's a fog of nausea and sensitivity to sound and light that just won't leave. I HATE THAT FOG and really want to be able to make the holidays nice for my husband and kids, and I'm pretty sure getting up and running to the potty retching or with stomach pain isn't a good way to impart holiday joy!
