2 in 2 days

The 20th and 21st I had migraines. They were, I believe, 2 separate migraines. They were about 24 hours apart. A Maxalt just about did the trick on both of them. However, I now need a refill, and I hate paying the copay for these orally disintegrating tabs because they are far from cheap. Still, it's better than hurting.

We're supposed to go to Abby's for dinner tomorrow. I'm going to have to make sure and take it easy so I can make it. Becky and her family won't be coming but JR will. His girlfriend is working. All this family stuff and some people not wanting to come if others are there is a big fat pain in the butt. I'm pretty sure a discussion about that was at least partially responsible for triggering the first migraine if not both of them.

I'm actually tired. I may get some sleep tonight. I forget to take the Restoril for some reason...I need to move it and just take it every night.

I'm just so tired of taking all these drugs...

addendum to the great sunglasses search

After riding in the truck for 2 hours on Saturday to pick up our rescue rooster, I had to take off my Cocoon overRX sunglasses. The pressure caused by the weight where they rest on the frames of my own glasses was causing my head to hurt once again.

I have come to the conclusion after this testing period that even the best of the overRX glasses are okay for short-term wear, but not so great for longer periods of time - at least for people suffering from facial pain. For others, it may well be different. This is my experience only.

This week I will be contacting the company I was referred to by LiveEyewear and I will check into having prescription lenses put into the Widelines. Hopefully this will solve the problem and I will be done with it all.

the great sunglasses search part 2

The owners of the company that sent me the Cocoons and Vistana overRX sunglasses graciously sent me two more pair in an attempt to help me find a pair to fit over my glasses as well as one I can have prescription lenses put in so I can wear them without my regular glasses underneath.

The Aviator XL Cocoon sunglasses, incredibly enough, fit! They cover the glasses and arms without pinching or weighing my own frames down so much that it hurts. I can wear them for over an hour without discomfort or a feeling of pressure on my head and face.
Hubby does have one pair of Fitovers that is lighter than the Cocoons but they are too tight for me. I am very pleased with the Cocoon Aviators and the fact that they actually fit and don't cause me discomfort.

The Cocoons Widelines are going to be perfect for putting prescription lenses in. They fit my face very well. The flexible armpieces are wonderful and easy to adjust so that they don't squeeze my head. I am anxious to find a dealer than can put prescription lenses in them. It will be nice to not have to wear two pair of glasses.

The UV blocking lens pieces on the sides of the frames are wonderful for anyone who is photosensitive. I really struggle outdoors if I don't have them on because the sun hits my eyes and it hurts.

I am very grateful to the people at Live Eyewear for going out of their way to make sure my eyes had the appropriate protection in the right size. I would recommend them highly to anyone looking for sunglasses to go over their prescription lenses in order to obtain the best product.
