Sabbath Sunday #25 - Migraines: A Different Kind of Post

Fr. Christian Mathis (Blessed Is the Kingdom) has made the suggestion that we "rest" on the Sabbath by taking a break from our normal blogging and sharing an older post of which we are particularly fond. Rest? Gladly! I don't get to do that very often, but now, thanks to Fr. Christian, I get to do it at least once a week -- and it gives me more time to spend with God, which is a wonderful gift.

Recently at a routine exam a doctor asked me about migraines. I guess they are pretty common these days or perhaps just more often recognized by doctors for what they are. When I said I have been migraine-free for more than 20 years, the doctor was surprised but understood why when I explained. I am not exactly migraine-free, but I no longer get migraines. When I feel one coming on, I send it away, using biofeedback that I taught myself. (One can also be taught biofeedback techniques.) A long time ago, I blogged about eliminating migraines and some folks found that post helpful. So, while the medical stuff is a bit off the beaten path for this blog, I decided to blog about it then and repeat it here this week for those who did not get to read it then and might find it useful now. Here it is: Migraines - A Different Kind of Post.

Wishing you a pain-free week, month, year!


  1. Hi! I came looking for your migraine post, which I still remember years after having first read it; I wanted to link it to a friend. Your link here doesn't work anymore. I was wondering if you still have that post somewhere?

  2. Hi Anna, my blogs were hijacked, and I have been away for two years. Time seems to have driven the hijackers away (they were looking for money to release the blogs), and I believe that the link now works. If not and if you are still, a year later, looking for the post, let me know, and I will send it to you as a text.

  3. I just checked the link, and it sent me to a Japanese page. However, I am not currently in need of the post; I don't even remember who it was that I wanted to show it to.

  4. Considering the length of time it took to respond, I can understand that, Anna.
