Thankful November Day 8 - Headache Toolkit
In honor of fall, aka pressure change season, day 8 of Thankful November is dedicated to my headache toolkit. My occasional world of hurt would be ever so much larger without blackout curtains, ice packs, pressure point therapy devices, and prescription medications to chase away the bees in my head and the lightening in my nerves. I am thankful for the research into what causes and how to relieve migraine pain. Without it, I never would have discovered some of my trigger foods and activities in my early 20s. Without my TENS unit, I wouldn't be able to stave off an attack until I could devote the time to suffering through it. While these aren't bulletproof methods, they make life a little easier to live, and for that I'm grateful.
