Headache

It has been coiling for days, the kind of headache that winds like a corkscrew from the top of your skull down to your feet - and now it is settling in, making itself cosy.

I have only this to say:

You have never been welcome before, Headache, and you certainly aren't now, so please just fuck off.

Seems a shame to be so abusive to a headache that has been described in such a wonderful way by its victim. That snake can travel you know; from Scotland to Suffolk or anywhere it pleases --- maybe it's so long that it can actually be in several places/people at the same time. Scary thought.

Nevertheless, draw the curtains, bung in the ear plugs, take the pills and keep telling it to fuck off until it gets the message !

(Have you tried feverfew ?.....or does such a suggestion make you want to tell me to join the snake ?)

oh, cusp, i've tried everything, you just have to wait til it fucks off, though my granny swears by feverfew for something or other!

That's so pants said...

Hi NMJ - I can offer only sympathy which I do without reservation. Get better soon. XXX

nmj said...

you are sweet, pants, thanks - jeez, i should be used to days like this by now, but they still floor me emotionally as well as physically.

Am sending you a massage hun. That's the only thing for my migraines, I only know this instinctively as nobody ever gives me one. xx

snap, nmj, as I've just said over at mine re. chewed head. Is it something in the air that can do as cusp suggests? I've taken my drugs which get me slightly out of the body, but the headache's still in it - waiting for me.
Let's just keep saying fuck off until it does.

anna mr, the finnish grass is growing, i hadn't seen until now, that has cheered me up! yes, massages help a bit, my poor mother was the giver yesterday, my instructions were: dig your thumbs into my neck and scoop out the pain, please.

oh signs, not you too . . . hope it eases soon.
