I've had a nasty spate of migraines lately– needless to say, I am not happy about it. Mine are usually quite spaced out, but these have all been within a few days of each other and even more brutal than usual. They keep slamming into me right before bedtime, and I can't figure out what might be triggering them– none of my usual migraine triggers seem applicable. Sigh. I'm not on any migraine medication because the risks associated with it terrify me and I've gotten sort of used to them– I had my first migraine at age 5. However, I also usually don't have more than one every month or two to tough out (OTC painkillers pretty much do nothing), instead of one every two or three days. Gah.

In brighter news, however, I've been very carefully saving my money for some time now to pay for a certification course in teaching English as a foreign language. It's not on the order of paying for graduate studies, but it's not cheap either, and the limited hours I work mean I don't make very much right now. Today, though, I was checking my finances and it looks like I have enough for tuition. Exciting! I need to hold off a bit longer so I can pay for other incidental expenses, plane flights, ect, but it's really nice to actually have my goal within sight.

I often find myself wondering when, exactly, everything started. Have I always been dealing with mental illness? Have I always been, to greater or lesser degrees, disabled? At times the wondering borders on obsession, the inability of my anxious mind to let things go making me turn the thought over and over in my mind. Maybe part of me thinks that if I knew when it started, if I could find some moment and say, “This is when it began,” then maybe I could master it. I could understand it, I could control it, I could fix it. Ridiculous, obviously, but a lot what goes on in my head has fairly little to do with logic.
