The Migraine Story


Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas

Today's Date: 5-24-2022

It was not a nice night last night. The migraine was still in full roar and sleep came in short stretches between active nightmares. We have had those kinds of nights before in the last fifty years but only a few times. The morning sun was really welcome. Most times the symptoms are much less severe.

It was about fifty years ago when the OFM went to a psychologist to find out what was happening. He was a really nice fellow and listened to the OFM tell all the things scaring the OFM. When he started explaining it the OFM was really relieved it was nothing dangerous like the chemical war weapons the OFM was exposed to in Viet Nam. At least we know what the OFM has when these things happen. We wanted to let our readers to know a bit about this affliction so they could get professional treatment if they get the symptoms. Treatment does help.

Any way we continued to have lessor and lessor troubles as the day progressed. As you can imagine little worth while happened than the four nice naps during the day.

As of tonight the symptoms have settled down A HUGE AMOUNT so we have hope of being in much better shape tomorrow for trying to have tooooo much fun again.


  1. Barney, new treatments are available for these attacks. Check with the VA or local doctors. They most likely can help!

  2. Very glad things settled down for you. And that you got some good naps. Sleep is good for a person. (As an old person, I find I treasure it more than anything else in my life.Ha. What a thing to say, but it's true.) And, as an old long retired psychologist, I am very happy to hear one was of good use for you (sometimes, things don't work like that). And as gumo says, there may be something new in the last 50 years. You're a sturdy person I suspect, so you'll be OK regardless, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. Nothing like making life easier, if you can. Here's to a good night, and a perkier day tomorrow.

  3. P.S. I greatly admire your honesty and to help others.

  4. P.P.S Make that your interest in helping others. Sheesh.

  5. Just in case you have never met GUMO in person. He is a real treat to visit.

    1. Don't have a clue about gumo but glad he's a treat!

  6. awww glad you know what you are dealing with and that you have a treatment that deals with the migraines. Sending all healing thoughts.
