Meditating while sick

How weird does it sound?! But that's what I did this week... With my monthly period last Sunday came one of the worst, tremendous migraine crisis I've got, and it lasted till yesterday. That one that won't leave even after taking strong medicine. I felt like the bug that bit the bandit's horse. You can see the picture... Self-pity and all! I got so nervous and worried this time... So I decided, trying to relax, to start listening to a CD my friend Chris Decato sent me last year and never opened, the 15-minute RainbowMeditation, that takes you through your seven chackras. It's short, well focused, with a relaxing voice leading you through the way and Decato's awesome soundtrack. So I started it on Monday, after Lucas went to school and Rodrigo was on the harvest. As my migraine gets worse late afternoon, it was a good time. Well, I can't say in such a little time that it works or what, but it clearly gave me some relax to face my pain, so I will keep listening to it everyday.

I came to a point I don't know what else I can do to prevent these crisis. I don't drink, I don't smoke, I eat healthly... Ormigren, the medicine I take, it's not working anymore. I will now try Bach essences. Specially, I also read that Ginkgo Biloba is good for this as well, and whatI read gave me some hope. I'll call my doctor in Rio about it... *sigh*

At least today I found a cool blog from a mom who also suffers from the same shit: The Migraine Mom blog! Gonna read more and add her to my list. She's not boring like me when in pain!

I am sorry you get migraines. I get them every 3 months usually it seems. I never got them until 1999 or so and then wow I didn't realize a headache could be that bad! Hope you can get your's under control if you have them often. It's no fun and ruins everyone's day it seems. :(

You are not boring! But Nydia, please try to read up on the migraines, do a Google search and consider some prescription medicines, please, I know you don't like to use them, but you need some you get an "aura" with them?

Now I can worry about 2 things with you, the migraines and that you are cold in the winter!!!

I'm so sorry about your migraines! Your poor head. I can't imagine how I'd feel after a migraine that lasted four days! It's great that the CD helps you relax a bit. Good luck. <3

I too suffer from migraines. Hoever, I started pilates and found out I have a Vitamin D deficiency. Taking a special high dose Vit D has taken much of my pain away. Vit. D is a pain regulator in the body. Just an idea if you go to the doctor. Maybe you can get it checked.

I have a lavender eye pillow that helps. Plus, a little helper who gets me my heating pad, and helps.
love and peace
