The rantings of a curious man in a very strange world

for those of you who are fortunate enough not to experience migraines I envy you. As long as I can remember there has always been a constant pain in my skull, as if some pressure needed to be released or my brain was set on fire. I've gotten used to the pain over the years, but this weekend something was wrong and I couldn't figure it out. Then it hit me as I was walking along the river, my head wasn't hurting. Not feeling pain was such a wonderful experience, sadly it didn't last long as a smoker walked by and at first whiff of the smoke it felt like someone tapped my head with a baseball bat. So today marks the day that my second migraine has begun, which for someone who has had one, constant, searing, gnawing, burning pain, it was a euphoric experience.
