Even though I am aware of the cause of most of my headaches, I still go through a series of actions that under normal circumstances would alleviate a headache. Coffee is my go-to headache reliever. Before the accident, if my head hurt, it was usually because I missed my cup of morning coffee. I always remain hopeful that the coffee will help, but it never does. Then, food. I would get so busy with work and school that I wouldn’t have time to eat which resulted in headaches. Finally, naps are my last refuge. At the very least, hoping that when I wake up I will feel better, but I usually don’t. It often feels like something is exploding in the back of my head, and I just have to deal with it.
