What with a splitting headache ruining all my fun today, I have come to the conclusion that I am utterly unable to think of anything of merit to say.
I hate how useless a headache makes me – It’s as if everything slides away and all that is left is pain and boredom. I think that’s the crux of it. Pain is unpleasant and awful and uncomfortable and above all, it’s boring. You can’t zap the painboredom away with activity or entertainment. It’s there to be endured, little else.
If I’m still in pain when I get home I’ll employ ‘Molly’s Patented Headache/Migraine Cure’. That would be a Voltaren Rapid 25, a Panadol, three big glasses of water and then a good twenty or so minutes lying on the shower floor while the water splashes down across my pathetic form like a waterfall. Also, tiger balm, just a spot on the temples or slathered liberally about the neck if that’s the cause of your head troubles (and for me it often is).
Do you suffer from chronic headaches too? Got any great remedies to suggest?
