You might be wondering why I haven’t updated my blog since last Monday’s post. My blogging routine is to publish two or three posts per week, sometimes more than that if time permits. But I’ve had a headache attack for four days straight that’s been keeping me from blogging and staying up late. Monday was the worst cos I had to call the office and informed that I would come late due to a terrible headache. I went out and worked despite of this cos staying at home would only make me feel sick. I thought I’d caught colds and flu the following days but luckily, it was just slight headaches. Although bearable, the annoyance it caused was uncomfortable and distracting that I couldn’t focus on what I was doing.
I know for a fact that it’s not a migraine headache because I haven’t experience nausea, vomiting and other sensitivities at the time of the attack. I couldn’t exactly tell how and what triggered my headache but I know I am sensitive to smoke and odors. But hubby doesn’t smoke and we both don’t wear perfumes. The only place I could smell fragrances and smoke is in public places like at the bus stop and malls. Medicines help alleviate the pain but I feel dizzy when I take twice a day. In Davao, I used to let my sister massage the back of my head and neck and the headache would be gone fast. I did ask hubby to massage me once but he was like massaging a baby, afraid the skin might be stripped off the body.
It’s hard to tell what causes me headaches but one thing I can say for now – I’m glad it’s over! Until then, have a nice weekend everyone.
Yes, I saw you were not posting. Good to see you are online again. Too much of focus on one subject is one of the reason of headache. In my case when I try to concentrate too much on writing I too sometimes have headache. Then I have to visit barber.
Take Care !

Hobo, thanks. I do hope it will not happen again cos it makes me feel weak and I’m losing courage to do what I want to do. Maybe we just need to get away from focusing all the time.
Always work, no play – One of the reason.
Play with kids. Go for outing – One of the solution.

Hobo, I wish I had kids to play with. 🙁
I’m sorry to hear about your headache. Maybe you can find alternative medicine. I have Chinese classmate who’s suffering the same her DR. here suggested acupuncture.There is also acupressure or consult a zone therapist.
I know how it is when I’m pressured and lack enough sleep then migraine attacks and I’m also sensitve to smokes and certain perfumes.
Have a nice weekend and get well soon.

Ana, thanks for the info. I didn’t know acupuncture helps relieve headache. I thought it’s for body pains. But I’m scared of needles so I don’t think I would give it a try. 🙁

Headaches are bad news. I hope you’re okay now. I was wondering what happened to you since I didn’t see any updates from you for a while …

Nick, it’s really a pain in my head. I would probable went for a check-up if it didn’t go away after four days. Feeling much better now, back to normal so to speak.
Oh I really hate headache! I’m lucky I didn’t felt the ache this month before my red day comes. Sometimes dahil yan sa diet natin Len then too much focus. Binantayan ko diet ko kaya nakaiwas ako.
Joy’s last blog post..For your daily exercise
Oh, Joy, I also have that kind of signal when my red day is coming. But this time’s the opposite and it lasted for days. I see, I’ll try to look on my diet. Baka nga ito ang dahilan.
I hope you’re feeling better dear. Whenever I have bad headaches I just sit under a warm shower and I would feel better.

Naku nagkasakit ka pala, buti okay ka na ngayon. Kami naman inuubo, uso kasi dito, bakit kasi nakiki-uso pa ano.
