A Feel Better Soon Gift...I Am So Grateful!

My feel better gift made by a friend

I have a headache which seems as if it is straight out of hell. I woke up with it Friday morning and it is sticking with me. I have tried everything to get rid of it, but no dice. That and continued wifi problems is why I have disappeared for hours from here. I have tried to get back to everyone that has been there for me though. If I haven't, I will, I appreciate each and every one of you. Yesterday a friend of mine saw I was in pain, I told her there is not much she can do, I will have to sleep this headache away, I have gotten it before and I usually need two nights sleep to get rid of it. About an hour later she brought me such a sweet feel better soon gift, it was a glass bowl fillled with water with some beautiful flowers floating in it with glitter and beads and aromatherapy scents added to it. She made it for me herself. I have placed it next to my bed and every now and then will look at it, it brings a sense of calm. I am so grateful I have such sweet and caring friends. I am off to try some new pain pills and see if I can take a nap, otherwise hopefully after sleep tonight I will wake up headache free tomorrow, I feel like I am seeing stars now...and not the pretty kind. How is everyone here doing this weekend? I hope you will all have a wonderful and blessed weekend. Collage is of the feel better soon gift my friend made me, the collage feature I used is part of my Samsung phone.

Very pretty that gift. You have a migraine right now? Would a paracetamol help? plus a cup of coffee?

Thank you. It is a bad headache. I took two pain pills and had a nap. I am just catching up here then off to bed to try to sleep the rest of it away.

I am very sorry you are in pain, is this a headache or a migraine? If it's a headache the best medicine is something that combines aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine, such as Excedrin. Ibuprofen should work for migraine. Good luck, I hope you will feel better soon.

Thank you, Anna, it is a strange type of headache I get now and then, it tends to last about two days and could be tension related. I will see if I can find some ibuprofen. I will be without electricity for 8 hours so am wishing you a good Sunday ahead.

Oh noooo, I feel so terrible for you. Of course you do too. Anyway, I hope your headaches go away soon. Have you ever seen a doctor about them or a they a type of migraine? Staying in a dark quiet place like bed and resting is a good idea. Wishing you a speedy recovery All the best to you!

What a lovely gesture of kindness from your friend. I hope that you are feeling better today. I haven't had a headache that ever lasted that long. I doubt I would be able to function if it did. Gentle hugs to you.

Through watering eyes, I am a stubborn individual and when I want to get something done I get it done no matter what. I took two pain killers and had a nap after and am getting back to everyone at 3am now because we'll have no power for eight hours today (Sunday) . Thank you, it is still niggling and then some but I will push through. I hope you have a good Sunday.
