Yesterday was a lost day. I had a particularly crippling migraine. Usually, I can push through. Yesterday, I couldn’t. I was ready to cut off my head just to feel better.

I managed to get the air conditioner in that morning. Plus, we waited ALL DAY for the intercom guys – who, of course, never showed up. Because it’s known that Monday is my day off from the theatre, and I made it clear that I am not going to tolerate the dumb ass behavior on their part, they’re waiting until today, when I have to go to work, and then they will bully my elderly mother into putting the intercom in a place where it basically makes it impossible for her to open her own door – all because it’s more convenient for them and the cheap labor they picked up somewhere instead of using people who know what they’re doing, who might actually do something correctly and logically. So, when I get home tonight and find that’s what they’ve done, I’m filing a complaint with the State. That’s why we have ETPA – to protect and advocate for tenants.

Anyway, most of the day was spent trying not to have my head explode.

Today I have day work and then, thank goodness, acupuncture. I’m in so much pain it’s ridiculous, and I’m sure the biggest trigger is the stress from the problems in the building.

Needless to say, absolutely no writing got done (even if I hadn’t had a migraine, the noise and the dirt and the chaos around here make it difficult if not impossible to work), and I’m very far behind on everything.

I did manage to finish the material for Confidential Job #1 on Sunday, on the train home from the show, so I can get that write-up off in the next day or two.

I’m upset and frustrated. And how can I get out to look at places to which to move when it’s not safe to leave the apartment unattended? It’s a vicious cycle, and if I need the State to come in and break it, that’s what I’ll do.

Off to the city – and prepared for a heck of a fight when I return home, migraine or no migraine.

Sorry there isn’t more about writing in today’s post – there’s certainly plenty of writing that needs to be done.

  1. oh. my. Must be the moon or something. A lot of folks are having bad days one way or another (count me in). I finally found where my “favorites” stuck you and have moved you back to where I can easily click and read. Whew. Need my daily dose. =]
    Hope your head is better and everything else falls easily into a good place.

  2. Feel better soon and stay strong!

  3. I hope you’re feeling better soon and you’re able to get some writing done. Migrains are the worst.

  4. Blast those migraines. I know exactly where you are coming from.

    My whole world darkens when I have one, and the idea of creating is almost unfathomable. Instead, I am simply thinking: survival, survival.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  5. Phew! Just caught up with all of your news. What an exciting few weeks you’ve been having. (Didn’t have time to read much on my last visit.) And nice to see you’re as busy as ever. Hope the migraine’s shifted now.

  6. *hugs* re all the crap going on in your life.

  7. I am so sorry to hear about your migraine. I realize you are under alot of stress and can only hope and pray that it gets better before too long. Thinking of you and sending good wishes.

  8. Feel Better 🙂

  9. Oh hugs, Devon. Migraines are horrible. And everything else just complicates things.

  10. {{{Devon}}} know how you feel. I hope the day in the city is better and all is well when you return home later in the evening.

  11. I sympathize with you big time. I used to have all different degrees of migraines. The ones I rated 1 to 2 were durable as long as I could wear dark glasses all day.

    Anything over a 2 meant off to bed in a dark, cool room with a cold rag over my head and drugs.

    Hope your migraine passes soon.
