Bah on that Groundhog.....Migraines anyone?
I never understood Groundhog Day. I admit it. The way it was explained to me as a child was that if the Groundhog sees it's shadow, that there will be 6 more weeks of hard winter, but if it didn't, then spring would come in 6 weeks. Given that explanation, it's no wonder I didn't understand, because even my child's mind could listen to that statement and understand that either way, it's 6 weeks till spring. It's quite a queer tradition by any rate. The Candlemas tradition makes a lot more sense to me in that it predicts the difference between a mild winter and hard winter. I'll go with that one, and by that prediction, winter shall not come again here.

I did find one site that shared my sentiment. Besides, spring always arrives on or near March 21, so whether the groundhog decides to return to his den or remain above ground, the sad fact is spring will always have to wait at least six more weeks. So nyah Punxsutawney Phil!


Have had the worst headaches for the last two weeks. Am really starting to wonder if I've developed migrains. Anyone know anything about migrains?

No, no, no! If he doesn't see his shadow, it's an EARLY spring. How early? I dunno, you'd have to ask Phil.

I think it's more about how cold those six weeks are going to be.

Incidentally, Phil almost always sees his shadow, to a tune of 95-14. Apparently no one has told him about global warming.

Migrains will stop you in your tracks and force you to bed. It is the kind of pain that makes you wish for death... I know, because I've had them. Light and noise are impossible to tolerate and you basically hold your head in a dark room and wish for death. When I get one it is so bad I must go to the hospital for IV drugs to get rid of it. Most of the time nausea comes with it and one will eventually be sick before the headache ends.

Migraines suck. Huge. I get migraines more regularly than I care to admit. There's throbbing pain in the temple, usually a more or less pinpoint-like. Sensitivity to light and sound are definitely a fixture of most of them. Nausea may or may not accompany them. Most over the counter drugs don't help in the slightest. Wanting to curl up and go to sleep in a dark and cold room is common. May or may not go away on their own - but takes a day or longer for it to work.

(((HUGS))) Hope you feel better soon.
