Last week I was lamenting over how my dietary changes seemed to be making no difference (or possible making my headaches worse). Over the weekend I spent time away from reality and with several long time girlfriends. We drank and I didn’t limit my diet, I ate whatever I wanted. And for the first time in months, I went a day without having to take a nap or take a med or something else to deal with head pain.
I did have some minor head pain but it wasn’t much.
So what does this mean?
I have no idea. Just another data point in the quagmire of conflicting evidence I have built up over the years trying to isolate the thing that is responsible.
Lately I’ve been thinking that maybe the underlying issue is simply stress. Even when I don’t particularly feel stressed, I bet my stress level is still higher than many years ago when my headaches weren’t so bad.
Maybe I had a good day this weekend because I was able to let go a little. Not worry so much. Just be.
On Monday I made a commitment to myself to do yoga everyday.
EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
I’ve done yoga off and on in the past. I enjoy it and it does have a way of silencing my mind for a short period of time. As I try not to fall on my face or my ass holding a pose while also making sure I breathe, I tend to forget about everything else.
Will this be IT.
Will this help?
Who knows. But it can’t hurt, right?
