Writers block

So, it really seems that I totally suck at blogging. I have recently recieved a few tips on how to become a succesfful blogger and one of them was to post regularly - which if you follow me, you'll realise I DON'T. Another tip was to write about positive things......another thing I don't really do.
It seems as though when I have something to say it's normally a sad story or something that I need to have a winge about. Well, i'm going to try really hard to change all that! My aim is to post a story at least once a week. Whilst my home 'army wife' life is quiet i'm going to try and post about a weekly interesting story at work. As well as keeping everyone updated with my Instagram pictures!!

My story for this week is going to be about 2 little puppies that came into our work as strays. We don't usually take stray animals unless they were injured.
One of the puppies, who we named Red Sox, wasn't injured but he came in with his friend, who we named White Sox, who was suspected of being hit by a car.
White Sox was found laying flat out on the side of the road, looking dead, with Red Sox sitting by his side not wanting to leave. The people who found them brought them into us over a week ago. It seemed as though White Sox had injured his front left limb. Red Sox was there for company! After doing x-rays on White Soxs' leg it was discovered that he didn't have any fractures so the vets put it down to soft tissue trauma and put him on a course of pain relief and antibiotics.
The two puppies have spent the past week in our care. Since White Soxs' leg has been better, we have been putting them outside each day to run around (also because they bark, ALL DAY LONG). On Friday we desexed and microchipped them both so they are ready for adoption.
I was on the late shift on Friday night. I had set all the patients up inside for the night and was doing some paperwork. White Sox cried continually. I got him out and sat him on my lap and he was silent. All he wanted was a little loving!! I spent the night typing away with little White Sox on my lap.
I am hoping over the weekend they were sent up to the shelter and got adopted! I guess I will find out tomorrow!!

Suffering in silence


Anyone who has suffered from this debilitating illness would know that they're not nice to have at all.

Feeling nauseous, blurred vision and the absolutely stabbing pain in the back of your skull which runs up the side of your face to the back of your eyes.

Recently I have been suffering from migraines on a monthly basis....sometimes fortnightly and it sucks. It totally sucks. Normally I can feel the migraine coming on. There is really nothing I can do to stop it and once it's hit there's not much I can do to make it go away. The only thing that makes the pain subside is panadiene, and now this is starting to have little effect.

This week I started getting a migraine on Tuesday afternoon at work. I drank more water hoping it would go away. Once I got home from work I had a relaxing bath, took some pills and went to bed. Wednesday morning I woke up with a slight headache but it wasn't too bad. It was my first day of TAFE which I couldn't miss so I dragged myself out of bed trying to forget the pain and pretend everything was normal. I lasted until about 3pm when I had to go home. Once I got home I went to bed. My fantastic husband got some panadiene from the pharmacy because I couldn't find any in the house!! He also cooked me dinner, but because of the nausea I didn't feel like eating at all, but I knew I had to eat something so I jammed in some bangers and mash.

I couldn't even sit up and watch my favourite show, masterchef. We have another tv in our spare bedroom so I set myself up in there so I could lay down and watch tv. My hubby came to join me and then left me to try and sleep.

Thismorning I woke up hoping that my migraine was gone, but no. My neck is still still and sore and the left side of my face aches. I have tried to sleep it off but I'm still suffering.

I try hard to get on with my normal daily life but sometimes it just gets too hard. I know a few other people who suffer from migraines on a regular basis and I know they too feel like they suffer in silence. You can't see migraines and if you haven't had one before you can't understand the pain that migraine sufferers go through.

My heart goes out to all who suffer migraines because I too suffer and I know EXACTLY how debilitating they can be!
