Good morning. 9am here in the wonderful state of Tennessee. Feels like 7am though because my body still hasn’t changed time. Couple more days of working on my new place and then back to New Mexico to finish up. Yay! Enjoy the view off my front porch.
Gonna be a lot of wildlife and from the looks of the road not a tone of vehicles! NICE!!!!

My heart goes out to both of you. I've had, in the past, some headaches that made me nauseous they were so bad. One thing that would relieve them was keeping my head under a regular light bulb with my eyes closed and covered. They weren't migraines I don't think though.🤗😘
That definitely sounds like a migraine. Anyone is susceptible to them, unfortunately, Angie and I fall into the bunch of people who chronic migraines. If you felt like you were giving birth out of your forehead, ear, or the top of your head while preparing Christmas dinner for 20 people, that pretty much describes some of the migraines Iʻve had.

Have you ever heard of trepanning? Drilling a hole in the skull to relieve pain ? Our prehistoric ancestors used to do it quite a bit, which suggests that they suffered from migraine too ! I gather that some people now also do it, aiming to improve their higher consciousness - or to get some sort of psychedelic experience. I must say that my brain (such as it is) sometimes feels like it wants to explode out of my head, but I don't think I could ever go that far to help it on its way - could you ?

All I know is I'm glad I went thru old age stuff because they stopped. I would just be so sick. I've even had a couple when I couldn't move my head at all. I think the worst thing about it was that people don't really understand how sick you really are. That's why I'm sending 🙏 and 🤗

Hmmmm, I have enough issues without having to drill a hole in my head. 30 injections into my scalp, neck, and shoulders every 3 months is a small price to pay to relieve 95% of my headaches. Nah, I don't think I would go that far. Any takers on that one?

Thank you! Yes, I don't think most people understand how debilitating migraines can be, and how they can set off depression and a whole host of other problems. Thank you for the hugs and prayers!

A lobotomy is just one hole, right? I thought I read somewhere that they stick a sharp thingy into the orbital socket then kinda mix it around like you're mixing cake batter. I'll take the 30, thank you very much!

My dear Cathy,
I think those WERE in fact a migraine.
Migraines make you feel nauseous and you want to go UNDER the bed for darkness. Sometimes THATS not even dark enough.
I get migraines rarely but when I do, I go right for that Excedrine.. and under the bed or in the closet! 🤣
I will try to think of things that people can do to at least take some of the pains away.
Maybe a HOT face cloth on the head?
There is a new medication that Whoopi Goldberg sponsors exactly for migraines!
When I see the commercial I will get the name and spread the word on the forum for people.
Migraines are the worst!
If I can help in any way.... I will try. ❤️🙏
I'm so blessed. I don't get them anymore. Especially, since I'm actually allergic to aspirin which is basically most painkillers. Nsaids to be exact. So give me morphine or nothing 😁

My co-worker just told me her 8-year-old nephew wants a sully, so after explaining to her how much work, effort, and money goes into caring for one, I scrambled around to find one of Tom's care sheets. Her sister's reply was, so... you don't just feed them? OMG.

Side note, the teacher who I saved Nibbles from is visiting her dad who has all these animals. She sent me pictures of his tortoises - he has 2 Aldabras!

My doctors get mad cause I won't take anything... so I do the nothing 😁 or a few champagne of bottle beers. Once I was escorted through private areas of a hospital to the pharmacy, to be easier on me, because I asked for a couple of vicaden just to help me sleep. I had bumped my recently fractured knee cap and it hurt really bad. The pharmacy thought the prescription was a mistake because it was for 2😁 what was really nice was I waited to take one until later. Then later. And then in one split second the pain stopped. I just threw away the pills eventually. 😘

Sorry for the kardashian.... but THIS is the medicine I was talking about!!!
It is called “ Nurtec”?
It is for people who get migraines more often than others...
Dr. Prescribed...
and it’s for people who have tried everything already.
We need to tell Angie too!!!
