The Fabulous Adventures of Astera: Writer/Actress for Hire

Meet Astera (aka: me), a star in her own mind. Our plucky little heroine has embarked on not one but two difficult, low-paying career paths: writing and acting. Witness the menial jobs! The unreasonable demands! The quirky friends and family! And the glimmer of success just ahead! Through it all, Astera maintains her core beliefs: 1) She is destined to be fabulous 2) Everything is more fun with a cocktail.

Thank You, Anonymous Poster!

I would just like to give thanks to the anonymous poster who gave me advice about my migraines. I have been working with a neurologist to control my headaches, and I know she doesn't really want me taking narcotics, so the poster's suggestions for other medications to try were really helpful. It's not like I want to be a drugged-out zombie, either!

I have tried injectable Imitrex before, and it did work better than the pills. I just didn't like stabbing myself with a needle, but I guess I should get over it. I am also going to try and get some Compazine. I have Phenergan, which is also an anti-nausea drug, but that just makes me really, really sleepy. I don't know about the Prednisone, though...I took that as part of my chemotherapy regimen, and it was like, "Hello, mood swings!"

I also think I have to be less afraid to just take the Imitrex right away. I wait too long to take it because it's really expensive and I try to save it for the really bad migraines. Unfortunately, it doesn't work very well if I don't take it right away, and then I do end up with a bad headache and no relief.

Wow. You never know what good advice you might get as a result of a blog post!
