headaches = bad

I had the fruitlings of a migraine. It was still a headache when I tried remedying it with fruit, caffeine, chocolate, and finally, drugs. I thought it would stay at headache level. But then I had to go grocery shopping.

Bright lights? check.
Noisy everything? check.
Did I ever tell you that I hate cilantro? Well all I could smell in the produce department was cilantro.

So that was pretty neat when I couldn't see.

Then we decided to buy some plants for the house. Flower shops smell good. I am definitely pro-flower, and it turns out that flowers have the right odor combination of pleasant and not overwhelming to stave off a migraine or at least bring it back to manageable headache level. So I came home, new orange flowers in hand, and took a Simpsons-induced nap in a dark room.

Ah, life.

migraines are the worst, I have had the same one for a week. Imitrex is the only thing making it bearable.

I am sorry you are suffering too

I'm lucky I've never had to get a prescription for them. But they sure do suck.

Sorry about the migraine.

I bought an orange kalanchoe at Trader Joe's for my boss this week. Boss's day and it is her favorite color. It was gorgeous.

Wow, now your boss and I have the same flower.
Good job!

I love those plants. TI have a yellow one on my patio.

I hate headaches. There's an essential oil called Sunbreeze. If you ever see it, by a little bottle and rub it on your temples when you get a bad migrane. The scent is also soothing. My MIL bought one for me and I can't imagine what I did before.

i know, there is just something about flowers that makes a crappy day, or i some cases head ache filled day, albeit a lighter and better one.
