Please Send Help

Scratch that. Send drugs.
I'm on day seven of this headache and nothing so far has worked. I've been through ever pill bottle in the house and now I'm on the Head-On at Janna's suggestion that it might work. But to no avail. I'd cry if I didn't know that crying only makes my head hurt more.
I'm actually thinking of naming it. It's old enough and big enough to deserve it. I've even decided on a name. Marvin.
"Why Marvin?" I hear you asking. Because I've been watching too much Muppet Show again and every time I see Marvin Suggs and his muppaphone I feel a connection to those poor fuzzy little muppets.
Actually, the more that I think about it, the more I think that from now on all of my headaches will be named Marvin.

My grandpa's name was Marvin. He's dead. I hope he didn't give you the headache.

Did he have a habit of hitting things on the head with a mallet?

Robin said...

Uhm, not that I'm aware of but he was a writer so anything is possible.

Sorry the head-on didn't work.
It doesn't generally take my headaches away completely, but it usually at least helps lessen them.

Sometimes if I have a migraine which has settled in my temples or eyes, I like to hold something really cold against my temples. That helps soothe it.

Back when I could afford meds, Frova worked most of the time. So did Relpax and Zomig. Surprisingly, though, Imitrex (The number one migraine medication) did absolutely nothing for me, ever.

Marvin is a very nice name.

Robin - Please ask the spirit of your grandfather to stop hitting me. Thanks.

Janna - The head-on didn't work completely for me either, but it did help. It got me through work anyway.
I really don't know what I'm going to do about these damned headaches. The big problem is that I have kidney disease so there are lots of things I can't have.
And thanks. I thought so.

I'll do my best however I did ask him not to let it rain on my wedding day and he didn't listen to me so I'm guessing he's busy or on vacation.

Gwenhwyfar said...

Yeah, vacationing in Canada... with his mallet.
