I’m experiencing horrible migraines on an almost daily basis. Yesterday was a blur – lots of narcotic painkillers and very little sleep. I’m in the midst of a vicious cycle. I’m sleep deprived (or even if I do get 6 hours of sleep, it’s not consecutive due to my shift of the early morning feedings). So between the post-partum hormones swirling around my body and the disrupted sleep, I’m getting migraine after migraine. The medication only makes me more tired, so I nap when I can, but I feel like I will never catch up. Each day brings the same cycle – disrupted sleep, migraine, medication, more fatigue, etc. It’s like the movie Groundhog Day…
