I went to watch my son play his second real game of football (Aussie rules) today. That's not a bad thing in itself, but it was very rainy and very cold - that's the bad thing!

Woke up with a migraine this morning and am out of ice packs. I think there is a freezer gremlin that spirits them away and hides them. Odds are I will be battling this all day -- and I have a 7,000 word quota to fill today. :(

I remember those days when my kids played soccer!

Temporarily locked myself out of the back office earlier this am. One of the young adult librarians pointed out a long-since unused back door so I got in that way.

So sorry for you - I woke up with an allergy/sinus congestion related one last week and was out of commission for a few hours. I used to lay my head on a heating pad instead of using ice - which is better (or worse)? Constricting blood vessels or opening them up with heat? Actually, when you're curled into a foetal ball in considerable pain, it's hard to even get to an ice pack or heat pad.

When I get migraines that also go to my neck I find putting one on my head and one under my neck helps a lot.

My wife had a severe attack of unending excruciating pain caused by trigeminal neuralgia that forced us call 911. Her medicines were completely ineffective. Only a shot of morphine or its equivalent at Emergency stopped the pain.

Oh Donroc! That is terrrible for her, and you! I do hope the pain has gone now and she is feeling better.


My worst thing? I had an email from my friend that visited us recently. I dont know if you remember, she has terminal cancer and came over for a nephews wedding. She got home and apparently has been poorly again. Her tumor in her liver has grown and she now needs more chemo to try and reduce it, as her daughter gets married in 5 weeks. She will loose her hair again, just in time for the wedding. I was wondering why another friend had not let me know how she was, like she normally does. On the good side she said she had had a great time here with us.
