Ho Hum, I have blogged about this so many times before, but I'm coming on for my third week of almost constant headache, and it really gets me down at times like this. I realise that it's linked to the end of uni, and the considerable stress I feel at this point in the semester. Let's face it, almost every student I know is facing some kind of physical meltdown in the face of major essays and exams. Mine just happens to be a continual, life-deadening headache that is so bad by this time in the evening that I really do begin to despair.
Each day I take around half a dozen Nurofen and apply lavender oil liberally to my neck and head. Once I get home it is hot and cold compresses, glasses of water, furious walks and then, finally, 6 - 8 Codeine which gradually numb me until I collapse into bed, my head still pounding somewhere in my distant unconscious. And then start all over the next day.
