From time to time I do get headaches, like any person I presume. However waking up with one is  a very rare occasion. So when I woke up this morning with a slow thudding vibrating through my head it was very surprising and extremely unpleasant.

There are many types of headaches: cluster, migraines, rebound, ice-cream and ictal but most of us only really experience tension headaches. And since I’ve recently had so much going on I think it is safe to assume that holding all my stress in my shoulders may have something to do with why my head is giving out.

With several pages left to read and still a good few things left to do on my list a headache really didn’t fit into my scheduling plan. However I am also not a fan of ‘little helpers’.

So, I decided to wait it out, maybe the more painful way of dealing with a headache but after a cup of tea, some food, a long hour of doing nothing, naught, nada the thudding began to subside, and I am quite sure that wearing my glasses added to lessening the strain.

Now with most of the morning gone I can only hope that the headache will keep slipping away and maybe, just maybe I’ll find the time for a relaxing walk to make sure that all my stress doesn’t end up in my head again.

A great wind is blowing, and that gives you either imagination or a headache.
