Many of us have noticed how a distraction can help the pain. I discovered a new one last night. It was around midnight and just the dog and I were home. I had taken a very cold shower and was wandering around the house, stark naked and dripping wet, making my usual "ghost noises." You know the ones, Oooooooh Ohhhhhh, etc etc. *LOL* Anyway, I was sitting in front of an air-conditioning vent to chill faster. There I was, eyes tight shut, clutching my head, feeling miserable and wishing this would just go AWAY. While I was doing this my friendly hound padded quietly over and slowly and lovingly pushed his large and VERY cold nose onto my belly! The shock was a lot like electrocution! I screamed, jumped, and yelled. I wound up doing a sort of "war-dance" for a while, holding my head and jumping around. After about 5 minutes the HA was gone and I was getting groggy and thinking about hitting the rack when the neighbors showed up. They wanted to know whether I had started doing human sacrifices or just what. It seems the horrible shrieking and howling had been a bit louder than I thought. *LOL*
All the best.
