You know – like a palm reading – but not. Cuz it’s your head instead.
I did yesterday – without even knowing it was happening.
I had a migraine yesterday. It actually started Saturday. I took a triptan pill. Triptans are used to help your blood vessels relax and open up to let blood flow so they stop constricting so tightly – which is what migraine pain is.
Sunday I had to take two more triptans. Which then meant I was out of triptans. My prescription is only for 9 pills a month. They are very expensive. If I get four migraines a week – well yah – they don’t last long.
So yes, folks. I had none left. Just like a meth user who takes their last hit – I get nervous. I knew Monday I’d have to refill my prescription right away and I prayed the migraine was gone.
It wasn’t. By Monday afternoon I knew there was gonna be a problem.
I was using my natural Progessence oil every 10 minutes. I decided to leave work early to get my prescription. But not before I texted my “natural oil dealer”. This is how the conversation went.
I have another migraine today.
Oh no! Are you light sensitive?
Looking up more stuff. We should talk about a serious system cleanse.
I’m so angry and sad all at once.
Try to let the emotion go. Don’t hold it in and don’t be fearful. What color is the first color that pops into your head if I ask you?
Where is your headache?
Looking up emotional triggers. How do you feel in your gut when I say “fear of inconsistency”?
Have you recently had a betrayal in friendship or love? Do any of those sit in your gut like old emotional stuff, or current stuff maybe?
Yup. I’m dealing with some major family stuff right now.
Okay. So that’s your headache. Pink told me. What is your main emotion dealing with family right now?
You feel disappointment and rejection.
Jesus. Yes and yes.
I’ll mix you some oils to deal with a migraine when you have one. I’ll drop it by.
That was the end of my “reading.” I sat there kind of stunned. Though I don’t know why. In my extensive migraine research, I’ve read that some scientists and docs believe 90% of migraines are caused by emotional triggers. 90-effing-percent.
And people? I’m a BALL of extreme emotions. Good and bad.
The whole thing makes me sad. I don’t know how to stop my excessive feeling, worrying and stress. It is who I am. And my body revolts against it – with migraines – that are debilitating me.
My oil woman says she can help. There are calming oils and things like that.
At this point, I’ll try anything. I’m all about Western medicine but it’s failed me so far.
Anyway – I used the oil she mixed for when I get a migraine and my migraine is gone. I took a triptan (after I got my refill) so I’m not sure which one fixed it. Normally the migraine would come back today so if it doesn’t – the oil may have worked.
Another girl at work had a bad headache and I gave her the oil and five minutes later she said it’s gone. That’s good news huh?
So how about you guys? Have you ever tried alternative meds for a health problem? What was it and did it work? I’d love to hear!
