Calling in Sick

by Stephanie Black

I got a migraine first thing this morning and I feel yucky. I'll try to blog later, but for now, here are a couple of links.

Part Two of my interview with Cindy Bezas is now posted here.

Here is a groovy picture of the sunset on San Franscisco Bay. I hope the colors show up better on your computer screen than they do on mine; it was really a spectacular sunset.

Migraines are evil. I wish you lots of quiet, dark, rest and lots of drugs.

Hope you feel better soon, Stephanie!

I loved the picture. What a gorgeous view! It also reminded me of when my son voiced his belief that the Golden Gate Bridge was named after Bill Gates, and my home teacher immediately replied that if it were, it'd have Windows all up and down it.

Try Coke. And then try it everyday for the rest of your life.

I have no faith whatsoever in the power of caffeine to conquer a full-fledged classic migraine. Does it really work?

Melanie, that's a good one about Bill Gates. Windows . . . hee hee.

I'm giving up on the idea of writing a real blog today. I'll try again next week.

For me, if I drink a Coke immediately when I feel a migraine coming on, then it will usually go away. But if I've had the migraine for more than an hour, nothing works.

excedrin migraine formula is just painkiller with caffeine added. So you get the caffeine without having to drink the coke (blech, though Dr Pepper would be worse, double blech)

I had migraines every day for two years -- I was way beyond the Coke fixit stage. My Neurologist put me on countless medicines, including several anti-seziure meds, trying to stop the electrical storm racing across the top of my brain. None of the drugs worked. Some of the side effects were over the top like my right hand became numb and I couldn't remember my daughter's name or how she was related to me.

After a blessing I went to the library and found the book that has changed my life. David Buchholtz, a neurologist at Johns Hopkins wrote a book "Heal Your Headache". He has noticed all migrainers have the same sensitivities. I followed his instructions religiously and have been migraine free for over 7 months! My biggest triggers are bananas, anything citris, MSG, nuts and caffiene.

Trixie, that's awesome. I'll have to look for that book.
