Just imagine your doctor or someone who thinks a headache is just a headache. There they are, fast asleep. Then they wake up to a ten (no, don't give them a twelve, you vicious bastards!). Think how they would enjoy themselves and, if that doesn't raise a laugh, it ought to do.
The point is that WE do manage very well. We're stoical about headaches most people can't imagine at all. YOU do have the strength, you cope with it well most of the time. You are frightened that you won't tonight or next time. Inside you is that ability to live through it and come out the other side, weak and shaken, but stronger mentally. Celebrate how you have endured in the past, rather than worry about today. You have done it before, you WILL be OK!!
