Anniversaries and Holidays

I realized this morning that I had passed my grandma's death anniversary with not too much notice. I certainly noticed it at the beginning of October this year. I was weepy and depressed. Then it passed and I didn't think about it. Now that it is a day past, I feel relieved, a little.

Today was a little bit better on the migraine front. I went to the doctor this morning, but didn't get much in the way of answers or relief there. Well, except an appointment for a CT scan of my sinuses to see if it's something in there. That's tomorrow morning at 9. Maybe it will show something, I hope not. I don't particularly wanting them messing with my sinuses, but at the same time I want this to be done with.

Thank you Roxie, MotherGoose and Jen for some words of wisdom. I am going to look into all of it. I have looked at all of the food before and some of it doesn't apply to me. I don't eat much in the way of red meat, dairy or red wine. But the chocolate, beans and some citrus do apply. I do want to try the visualization exercises, but want to practice it before another one strikes. I have actually done some relaxation that way.

Hmm, there was something else I wanted to add, oh yeah, this! Sewmama is doing a November Handmade Holidays. It looks like it will be good.

So sorry to hear about your migraines! I get migraines too. mine are hormone related, I used to get them every month, now that I'm older, they're more random. Maybe yours are getting worse from hormone changes. Imitrex is the only thing that works for me, I'm sorry you haven't found anything that works yet. They can really mess up your life! I love your socktopia socks. They inspired me to sign up (like I need one more thing!). Take care!

Blessings on you. Dress warm for your scan. They usually keep those rooms colder than a dead eskimo. I always take a warm wooly shawl in with me.

Do you wear hats when you go outside? Short hair and a bare neck equals a lot of heat loss. I sometimes got muscle-tension headaches just from being chilled.
