My cycle is still holding off...Yeah!! Didn't get pregnant during the in vitro but we will try again.
Anyway, I have a mind game to add to gary's wonderful post. Every once in a while when I am stuck in a situation where I cannot stop for a cluster (late at night driving on a remote rode or something)I torcher my headache back. This will sound really stupid but I pretend that I am Superwoman and that I can tolerate the worst pain in the world and just brush it off as if it were nothing. Then I imagine that I turn the tables on the headache and begin to torcher it back. I laugh maniacally as it squirms and screams out under my ruthless attack. Then I laugh at how incredibally stupid I am and the momentary divirsion of the laughter lifts my spirits and gets me through the next few moments and then I repeat the whole play.
I also make up really stupid rhymes that I sing that also have the effect of making me laugh at myself.
No, my husband hasn't committed me yet.
So in the midst of your next attack you can picture me crawling around on the floor singing "I am superwoman, and I can take anything..." and perhaps you will laugh and a moment of your pain will be temporarily forgotten.
