The Aura of Pain πŸ’₯

Some pretty zinnias in the sunlight.

Some pretty zinnias in the sunlight.

Yesterday’s entry was cut short by a sudden migraine that just crept up on me, had its way with me, and now is gone. I had intended to write more and include the pretty picture you see here, but the colors were throbbing off the screen and I couldn’t bear to look at it. That’s how it goes … some headaches turn into migraines and the tiniest thing can become a splinter of pain … and when the headache goes away, I am the happiest person in the universe. So happy. So grateful.

Lucky for me, headaches are mostly a thing of the past, along with Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, all due to the hormonal festival that is menopause. I think it’s a good trade because I can now objectively enjoy fall and winter without dread. The days are short, but the nights are long and we have electricity for tea and heating pads, so it’s all good. πŸ”
