in exchange for the disappearance of my headache. Normally, a migraine has a specific pattern to me so I want to say that I'm not experiencing one but I'm sensitive to light, sounds, and smells. I've had two nose bleeds today AND I feel like I could throw up at any moment. You're probably thinking, TMI, but dudes, I've said much worse on my journal and in my podcast. If you can listen to me talk about anal sex on my podcast, you can read about my fucking terrible headache from hell.

Regardless, I'm all whiny and shit because I can't listen to music on my headphones which is super important because it's a huge part of my writing process so I'm not writing. I've only got about 30k more plotted for my RT story and I've already posted 10k so I'll meet my goal for the month (surely) but it's annoying to be limited by a physical situation versus say a mental one where I'm just not in the mood to write.

So, I've been sitting here playing a stupid Facebook game and I read some intolerant bullshit today that made me pissy I had to take time out in the shower. Well, I didn't have to take a shower during my computer time out but it seemed like a good use of that time.

I don't know if it would help any at all, but I also suffer severe migraines that come with sensitivity to light and sound. For me, I've found that a taking a back in warm or hot water with as many lights turned off as possible helps; the darkness helps with the light sensitivity, and putting your ears underwater helps with the sound sensitivity.

Aside from that, I've also had some success with massaging the back of my neck with tiger balm, as that can help with the blood flow issues that are often involved in a migraine.
