in the land of migraines.

Things have been worse than normal in my head lately. "Normal" is, of course, a very relative term. Its gotten to the point where I'm keeping a journal. A migraine journal. I keep track of all sorts of fun things, like what I eat and drink, exercise, migraines, weather, etc. The hope is to write all this crap down for at least a month or so and then tease some patterns out of it. I've got a good handle on a couple triggers, both of which I can do very little about. The trick is to separate that business from other potential triggers. Therein lies the rub.

I didn't attempt this particular tactic sooner for completely irrational and selfish reasons. Quite honestly, I don't want to know if chocolate or red wine are triggers for me (though I don't believe they explicitly are). Well, hell, who am I kidding?! That's a completely valid reason to stick my head in the ground! So, we shall see where this business leads. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the wine.

Poop, that doesn't sound like fun. I have good red wine for Thanksgiving so hopefully it will all work out!

You know even if the Doc says wine is involved; it's not all wines. American wines add sulfites but European wines don't (unless they export them to the US). What I'm getting at is that you may need to travel abroad and buy wine.

I hope that you are feeling better soon and that this bad head spell disappears quickly!
