Well I woke up at 3:30 am with another headache.
How everyone wants to start their day am I right?
Just call me the weather girl cause you guessed it there is a front coming through.
I took 2 Excedrin and waited for some relief. It did get dull after about a hour but at a hour and a half I was irritated and pulled out the essential oil blend I just ordered last week from plant therapy.
I dabbed it on my temples, behind my ears and on my neck and waited.
After about 15 minutes I went into that kinda of headache haze. Where you have relief but you still know it’s there lurking but that was enough relief to help me sleep a couple hours.
When I woke up AGAIN to Tilda in my face, she doesn’t understand personal space, I felt good enough to start on a spreadsheet for my son’s school. I have been putting it off for a week hoping for one good day of no headache to do it.
That obviously was never going to happen and time was running out for it to be done.
I got my cup of coffee
yes it is Christmas penguins no judging and started on the spreadsheet only to realize some of the lists were not in alphabetical order and my spreadsheet was. Doh
After I got that all sorted out. My headache was coming back. So I decided to experiment and take one Excedrin instead of 2 and use the oil blend.
I was surprised I felt better in less then 30 minutes. Knock on Wood this may be a life saver.
After 7 hours with an hour break for the midday headache and a coffee mug change the spreadsheet is finally done.
I need to learn to start saying NO!
The headache never came back full force. I still feel like it is lurking but I feel good. I can’t be positive it will work every time since I just started using it but this essential oil blend might be my new headache reliever thing.
I am still going to go see the doctor since this has been going on for far to long
23 days to be exact this time around just to make sure I don’t have anything else going on.
But for tonight I am going to be thankful that I feel good.
