“Insomnia comes and goes like the Sahara winds. It, like the sands, has a purpose. I embrace it. It is beneficial if one looks on it as a fact of life. Don't fight. Resistance is futile.” - Limner of Oh, Write Me!
There have been times in the history of this blog when I have gone on and on about my health. This year I have felt a lot better for much of the time but that doesn't alter the fact that a great deal of time is spent tired and in pain, sometimes in bed but unable to sleep. This morning, taking note of Limner's advice I'm up, writing this, at 3.25 a.m.. I had yet another really bad migraine last night. I am having a run of them and my sumatripan tablets do not seem to be as effective as usual. Notwithstanding which I look OK at the moment and it's not unusual for folk to comment to that effect. "You're looking well," said a chap who does some odd jobs for us. It reminded me of a great video that appeared on The Mighty's Facebook site - What Sick Looks Like: Maddie Petersil. It's well worth viewing.
