Left the job. Health declining.

For the last month of my employment with Dollar General, I had been experiencing intense and extremely frequent migraine headaches. As I am writing this journal, I should be at work today, but I had to call my boss about the most recent and damn near debilitating one I just had last night, and that I can't keep working under these conditions -- nor can she try to work around me doing this. I hope she understands.

Because of these migraines, I don't know when I will get back to commissions. I may do one or two occasionally like I was before when I was dodging the depression, but it really is entirely up to my physical health now, not just my mental health. I will open commissions again the moment I clear my queue. Priority will go to people who have already paid, such as for those who visited me at AnthrOhio last week and did not leave with a commission in hand.

Quick Addendum: I have been seeing the doctor about these migraines, but I will be seeing a specialist later next week.

I hope the specialist is able to help you with them.

It may not help, but the FDA just approved a brand new migraine preventative last month. Might be something to discuss with the specialist: https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnounceme...

That can't be cheap.

Also, I'm waiting to see what might be causing the migraine attacks. There's a lot of possibilities as to what it could be. Some of them are... kind of dire.

Yeeeaah. Let's hope it isn't that. <_< Sorry to hear about all this, dude. And I heard working at DG is...bad, so that couldn't have helped.

At most DGs, I would agree. This one wasn't a particularly stressful one, as the thing I worried about the most (health-wise) was actually the flourescent lights above, of all things. I had an amazingly supportive and understanding boss *and* staff.
