Help! I can't function! :(

I woke up at 3am with a migraine so bad I was vomiting! My vision was blurry, and I am still dizzy. I drank a mountain dew, took Tylenol, motrin, and have an ice pack on my head! Im crying it hurts so bad. My poor kids are paying the price. They are just running around! My sweet 5 yo got all the kids cereal and yogurt thus morning while was puking! Dh can't get back home until tonight. It hurts to type this omg I think I need the ER what do I do?!

  • You need to call a neighbor, a friend, or someone to watch those kids while you get to the ER. Good luck mama and feel better!

  • Call 911 and go to the ER. Can a neighbor watch your kids?

  • There really isn't much you can do once you get one this bad, I usually take a long hot shower and then sleep it off. Is there anyone who can baby sit for you?

    Also, this book changed my life, hopefully it will help you too:
