This is the way I felt, as if the top of my head was going to go off in a horrible chute of pain and nerves and flashing lights. I felt nauseous and ended up in the bathroom, throwing up the contents of my stomach. That act alone was excruciatingly painful.
I was injected with a strong painkiller, which made me feel drowsy, and I fell asleep. When I woke up the migraine was gone, but I felt weak and shaky.
I took this photo, then worked in an editing program, to create the effect that I wanted - or rather, to recreate the feeling that I'd experienced.
