It happened today for the first time in weeks.
I awoke with a slight throbbing in my temples and a bit of light sensitivity. By afternoon, the feeling of queasiness set upon me and my head began to throb. By early evening, I was in serious pain.
But I had deadlines. Er... I have deadlines. Even weekend deadlines. It's part of the job. So I'm writing through a migraine-induced haze.
This is one of those times when it would be great to take a "sick day", but there's no such thing in the land of freelancing.
It's okay, though. Really.
It's almost 9:00 p.m. and the migraine has substantially subsided. Now, I'm left with a blank computer screen and a ticking clock.
Ah... but the vice grip of a migraine is still better than working in a cubby and listening to a coworker jabber on the telephone about her impending menstrual cycle.
(Am I a snark-a-holic tonight or what?)
