Doing Better Today

I think I'm better today. The migraine is not as intense. It's lingering, but it's subtle. My stomach is a bit icky too. However, the good news is, she has arrived :-D!....Yay! Seven days...just seven days, all my pain will be gone...at least for 3 weeks! LOL!

I slept pretty good last night, which is always good news. Had a long talk with my aunt yesterday, through tears of pain from the migraine. She seems to think I don't relax enough. I truly understand what she is saying, but isn't that all of us? Who has time to relax. That word barely exists in today's vocabulary...lol!

My cousin is doing better. He is still being demanding about the food. He is doing better with the physcial therapy. I believe he is up walking now with a walker rather than spending so much time in the wheel chair. He has lost his cell phone, but they found it in his pocket. Not sure if it went through laundry or not. We will have to see if it charges.

I will be going down to San Diego to see my oldest son, you know, do the mom thing, take him some home cooked food and to pick up a few groceries :-). He's trying to do the grown up thing since dad put him out (dad was wrong, but it is a good thing that my son is doing his own thing now). He's being quite resourceful.

Well, I have kids to look after. The day care is doing well at this time :-D. I will talk to everyone a little later today.

Postive thoughts and prayers! :-)

Your son will love having his mum to visit - there is nothing better than a few favourite home cooked meals. Do you get back pain Pres? I am wondering if you may benefit by a visit to the Chiropractor. Often when I get headaches its related to my back. Just a thought anyway. Take care now.

I wonder if you are drinking enough water also. Being dehydrated can bring on horrible headaches.

I don't know if this helps but my PMT reduced when I started taking a lot of evening primrose oil. I had to take a lot for six weeks before I noticed changes. It was recommended to me by an endocronologist.

Then again, she also said that once I got to menopause I would feel much better. Sigh.

I bet your son will love having you around. No matter what, when mum comes in the door children feel very happy.

Polly,

I have thought bout a chiro, but have never related it to my headaches. I will definitely consider it.

Thanks for the suggestion! :-D

Linda,

What form is the Primrose in, oil, tablet, powder? I'm not much on herbs. I can learn though.

I know I don't drink much water. The water here tastes horrible. It helps if it is cold.

I'm always thinking it might be something lurking in it that will give me cancer later in life! Is that a horrible thought or what? I was boiling it for a while to hopefully kill any microrganisms.
I will definitely check my water. Perhaps start buying it!

Thanks for your suggestions too!

Primrose Oil comes in capsule form. Here you can get it from the supermarket and online is very cheap.

I think getting some more fluids in would help hugely. Maybe boil the water and then let it chill in the fridge. Add a little bit of lemon juice to it or something.
