Cooling pads for my migraines

The other day, I think it was Tuesday, I started getting a migraine. This was not surprising at all, as I get them pretty frequently. My migraines can be a nuisance to the whole family - plans get canceled, children have to play quietly, friends can't come over (or have to go home) and all of the lighting in the house gets turned down. They all get so sick of mom going around turning all of the lights off!

But then I remembered what my mom had put in my Christmas stocking! Cooling pads to go on my head when my head starts hurting! Awesome!

These things feel so good, but, they only really help if I use them early on in the headache. I didn't get it on quite early enough that day, but, I did get it on soon enough to offer some relief.

Anyway, being the geeky blogger that I am, I thought I should photo-document the occasion. But then I discovered that my camera was out of batteries. So I went into my daughter's room and swiped hers. It's just a cheapy little thing, but, it does the job. So the pics aren't the best quality, but, that's ok. You get to see what the pads look like and how adorable I look with one on.

You can see how red my face gets with the migraines, too, though. *sigh*

Anyway, I'm a dork and here's my migraine-y pics:

I love those...we can't find them anymore...they were like headache ice or something...they rock

I use "absorbine jr" heat patches for my back when it hurts

Those things are the bomb. I can't find the migraine ones around me anymore either!!! :(

I also like the "fever" ones for kids. Definitely a comfort for my boys when they are really sick. I think I only have a few left, I'll have to add those to my shopping list.

Well now, see - Deb and Retta - you guys are just educating me on more good stuff! Awesome!

I'll have to find out where my mom bought them and if we have them out here - I'll send ya'll some!

Oooh, if we don't - I could get her to send me a big care package and split it up with ya'll!
