Hi, Carl. :) You see, it's like this... I had back labor, so I was in complete, unremitting childbirth pain for 12 solid bone-wrenching hours. And since it was Christmas Day, I had the devil's own time getting a doc in to authorize the epidural ... so most of it was done unaided (they gave me Demoral, but that didn't kill it, just me want to smack the people yelling at me to "focus" ... ROFL ... another story.)

Anyway, childbirth lasted 12 hours, and was a solid 9 that whole time. My worst headache ever spiked at a 9 several times, but the 9s never lasted more than 5-10 minutes at a stretch. Frankly, I'll trade them with no problem. <g>

If I had to do labor everyday for the rest of my life to keep my daughter, I'd do it. But if I had the choice between the headaches and the labor, I'd take the headaches. Even at their worst, I get 6 good hours a day. :) That's my logic. Such as it is. ;)

I'm down to a 1 now, so I'm drifting off to bed. Nite!
