Hey all! I couldn't be having a better day! GOT 5 EMAILS SAYING APPROVED!!! I know i said it in 2 other posts... but this one reads tuesday, and this is waht my tuesday is ALL about!

Now to top it all off..... this lady needs to call me back about this job.

I'm only working a couple nights a week, and its very boring!!! Im teaching phlebotomy. Not that the class is boring, the students are boring. They just sit there like............ DUH!!!!!!!!!! They have the nerve to ask can they draw my blood, which is not usually a problem, but they are toooooooo zombie like, and they are all really good at it.

But since my hair is falling out, I cant afford to loose to much a nothing else! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!


Pray with me Forrest! Dear God, make me a bird so I can fly far. Far, far away from here..... Dear God, make me a bird so I can fly far. Far, far away from here!

Good day all! Well I got home last night and had a full blown migraine! I was in pain for at least 6 hours! I was out of the migrain medicine I take and I waited til 7 to break fast and take a tylenol. Not such a good idea because I could have saved myself 3 or 4 hours of pain had I broken fast to take it. So I was asking about having migrains and fasting on another site i am a member of and they directed me to two different sites that stated that if one suffers from migraines then one should not fast.

Those with Migraine Headache:

Even in tension headache, dehydration, or low blood sugar will aggravate the symptoms, but in migraine during fasting, there is an increase in blood free fatty acids, which will directly affect the severity or precipitation of migraine through release of catecholamines. Patients with migraines are advised not to fast.

http://www.islamic-world.net/psychology/psy.php?ArtID=198

I would like to know how to decide when it's okay to break a fast due to illness and what is required to make it up? I suffer from migraines on occasion for which I take prescription medication at the onset of the headache, so timing is important to avert a full-fledged flare up.

These headaches can completely incapacitate me for hours or days without the medicine. I broke my fast a few days ago to take medication, so I have missed one day already this Ramadan. Yesterday, I experienced another headache and chose to ride it out, though it was extremely difficult to do with hours of severe pain and many tears before Maghrib.

Even though I feel that it is understandable that I should have to break my fast, I still feel guilty and inferior for doing so. I worry that somehow Allah, will not forgive me and that I am just a weak person. Do you have any advice for how much pain we are expected to endure for the sake of Allah in the case of fasting?

Answer The basic rule concerning illness is the concession to break the fast if fasting harms the health of the fasting person especially if a trusted physician (preferably a practicing Muslim) recommends or instructs the patient not to fast due to harm or excessive pain such as migraines. Any missed day of fasting should be made up for in a later time, preferably before the following Ramadan.

The extent of pain that a person can endure is left to your own good judgment but remember that the Qur'an and hadith state that Allah does not wish to require us as humans to do more than we can bear.

So I decided since I still have a small headache left from my migraine I am not going to fast today and I am going to contact a doctor about this.

I hope everyone has a good day!

I was just telling my husband last night that I couldn't imagine not drinking water all day. I have to drink a certain amount throughout the day or I get so dehydrated my head is throbbing. We even keep water on the headboard and I drink it several times throughout the night.

Yeah I fasted with Hicham on Sunday because he was home from work and I ddn't want to eat in front of him but I felt sick all day- tired, headache, stomach ache... it was not fun. I told him that I really didn't want to do it again on Monday and he said "Why are you even doing it in the first place?" haha so I guess I'm the crazy one.

I've been attempting and doing well for the most part. But I have to drink a mouthful of water after I brush my teeth in the morning. I can't imagine not doing that. Maybe it's because I think I usually sleep with my mouth partially open and it's like a desert in there when I wake up. :lol:

I get really fatigued too. No headaches though alhamdulillah. I usually have to take a nap after work during Ramadan.

These stories kinda remind me of the time that my 2 friends and I decided to go a low carb diet together. One of my friends, who never eats breakfast, ate 2 donuts in the first hour of our diet because she couldn't handle it anymore. :lol:
