Notice to the Headache That Has Pestered Me All Week:

I understand why you would choose to spend the week with me. I'm lovable, sweet, funny, kind, and not unattractive. I smell nice and cook yummy meals. I have adorable and funny kids. If I knew me, I'd hang around me too. It just makes sense. And, hey! The weather here this week has been great. The thing, Headache, is that I can't really enjoy this weather or my adorable and funny kids when you're here.

You're no fun. I know that is a harsh thing to say. I'm sorry, but it is true.

But it's worse than that. You're a pain. An honest-to-goodness, make-my-life-miserable, please-go-away-and-don't-come-back pain.

That was even more harsh, and, again, I'm sorry. But it had to be said. You need to know the truth. You need to know how I feel about you. You need to know how you affect my life.

So, I'm breaking up with you. I hope you understand and leave gracefully and with the dignity and self-respect that keeps you from coming back and stalking me.

I'll always remember our times together. Well, most of them. Sometimes you were such a pain that you left holes in my memory. And, for that, I will never forgive you.

But I'll make you a deal. Go away and don't come back and all is forgiven.

Sincerely (Really and Truly),

Keri, the Auburn Gal Always

Magnesium Oxide (Mag-Ox) 400mg once a day from now and till forever.

Trust me - pharmacy degree from Auburn.

Trust me - been taking it for a year and my migraine frequency went from 2-3 per WEEK to less than 5 in a YEAR.

Google it...there are at least two studies that show that people that suffer from migraines are deficient in elemental magnesium. In fact, most people are probably deficient. It's one of those things that it will not hurt to try it. My OB and family practice doc were both amazed when I told them about it and they now recommend it!

I have migraines, and I know EXACTLY what you mean. I would do just about anything to get rid of them for good.
