the migraine that kept coming back this week finally is fading I hope, but I still have a low-level headache and feel like my brain is soup

my neurologist is going to work on approval for Botox. in the years since I went off meds for migraine prevention, it’s gathered more data for its effectiveness in a good chunk of patients and doesn’t have the cognitive side effects that have been making me resist going back on a preventative med.  You would think I’d be mildly concerned about 31 tiny injections of toxin all across my face, but I feel numb at the idea (pun originally not intended, but I’m leaving it, because Zack doesn’t like puns)

anyway when you have a migraine that barely responds to the acute meds, you’d do anything to relieve it, so it doesn’t seem crazy if it prevents even some.
