I had an awkward moment earlier this year where someone suggested a(n, admittedly, new-to-me) home remedy for my migraines.
Naturally, the person was not a fellow migraine-sufferer. Naturally, their home remedy made no goddamn sense to me.
Listen. I need to be honest with you: i don’t want to hear your schemes and crackpot ideas for how i can cure my migraines. I’ve had regular migraines since i was 13 (regular headaches since i was 8 — yes, an 8-year-old with regular headaches). Chances are, i know more about head pain than you do. I certainly know more about my head pain than you do.
So here’s my policy for all head pain -related discussions going forward: KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. You try to talk with me about head pain and what i should be doing to treat mine, i’m just giving you a very simple reply — “Thank you, but i only discuss my health issues with my spouse or my doctor.”
That is all.
