Hello Darkness, my old friend #MHAM #MHAMSMC

What’s in your “#Migraine or #Headache cave?”

What do you mean you want the lights on_ It is perfectly fine in here- said every migraineur..png

The Cave, for me, isn’t the bedroom because I feel guilty and weird when I am isolated in there with chronic migraines. In other words, like I would spend too much time in there. So the cave is the living room, curtains closed.

In there I utilize all I can with a bad migraine.

  • Ice- that is nice.
  • Aromatherapy- sage, lavender or peppermint.
  • Migraine balm- after the ice, of course. The one I use is Japanese Mint Oil.
  • Meditation- I have an app for that. Actually a few apps for that.

So I turn on my Organic Aromas Diffuser, put some ice on my forehead and sometimes the back of my neck as well (or on my neck menthol cream). I lay on the couch with my eyes closed and I put on meditation. There are a few ones for pain I have, so I use that. Or I do some gentle relaxation breathing.

And when the pain responds to nothing at all, I zone out to Netflix because there is nothing else I am capable of doing.
