As I sit down to write this post I can feel one coming on from behind my eyes. It has been there for a few hours and I have been quite and calm and steadily swallowing glasses of water. I made myself do yoga, stretched every muscle in my body, and lay still on my back to meditate. The blinds are closed, the lights are off. I am now waiting for the headache to come. Convinced that I can beat this without panadol.
The pain has been there – behind my eyes and one side of my brain – for a few hours and it has not gotten worse. Perhaps it wont come? Perhaps it will not turn into the migraine I predicted.
It is summer time and the headaches are back. This year I am trying to not take the tiny white tablets. The harmless household pain killers that are popped without another thought. I am going to go natural. I am going to lie still in the dark and try to listen to what my body is telling me. I am going to try my best to give it what it needs and hope the pain goes away.
And what is my body asking for right now? White chocolate. So I am eating it.
What do you use?
