In an attempt to ward off any "extra" migraines that might accumulate in a given month, I've decided to experiment with a remedy that most doctors/scientists recommend = drinking more water.
They (whoever "they" are) say that the cause of most headaches are due to dehydration.
You see, MY migraines are due to my body having an inability to handle an increase in hormones (if you catch my drift...). They are also categorized as "cluster" migraines. Which means, when I get one, it creates a domino effect of daily migraines that continually occur for about 1 - 2 weeks. Yes, "ouch" is what I'm thinking, too. They are horrible happenings which can very easily get me thinking suicidal thoughts (hopefully including a spoon with which I can proceed to gouge out my eye and then happily bleed to death as the face of Jesus becomes more vivid. Crazy? Yes. But you try having a migraine someday and then you and I can help each other with the spoons and the gouging.)
The point of my little story? Simply put, my migraines are beginning to slightly go off pattern. I'm figuring it's the fact I've increased my coffee drinking each day by 2 cups. Also, the Coke I've been drinking for lunch and dinner. It got me thinking...I just might not be hydrating my body enough...hmmm? Do ya think?!
When making my weekly trip to the Super Walmart, I came across the most adorable little "water bottle". <*<*lightbulb*>*> It only cost about $1 and I can fill it and fill it with my very own FREE water! Not only is it a cheap alternative (my most recent past time = finding cheap alternatives) but it just might help keep those nasty "extra" migraines at bay!
Well so far so good. It seems that my experiment leaves me with more energy and stamina. It makes my head feel clear. But one thing I didn't account for. One thing I failed to hypothesize.
The more water you let in, the more water that comes out!
I've made more trips to the BBC ladies room than I would like to mention. You probably loose weight by drinking 8 cups of water/day not because "it flushes out toxins and fat" but because you're RUNNING to the bathroom every 5 seconds. I think my boss is starting to question what I'm actually doing in there. Honestly? Releasing the relentless flood. I'm thinking I might even get my name engraved on the stall door.
More hydrated? Sure.
Fewer migraines? Sure.
Cute little water bottle? Sure.
Less annoying? Maybe not.
