Migraine Awareness Month #21 Oblivion.
That sort of says it all. Seeking Oblivion.
o·bliv·i·on (-blv–n)n. (thefreedictionary.com/oblivion)
1. The condition or quality of being completely forgotten: “He knows that everything he writes is consigned to posterity (oblivion’s other, seemingly more benign, face)” (Joyce Carol Oates).
2. The act or an instance of forgetting; total forgetfulness: sought the great oblivion of sleep.
I think of wishing for oblivion… for unconsciousness, for nothingness, for just a coma like state to suck the pain away. Other times I just wish I could obliterate the migraine itself… just utterly destroy it.
And sometimes I think the pain is so intense or the vertigo and pain combo is so intense it drives my Consciousness and Awareness into a state of obliviousness… into senselessness, insensibility, limbo… into a state where action is definitely not possible but neither is thought, it is just this warping of pain and spinning and flashing lights and shifting nausea… just symptoms. No me at all. Oblivion.
