I think the story of Athena springing from Zeus' head was another analogy of a migraine sufferer, too. Mine get so bad, I swear there has to be someone in there pounding with their shield and war hammer, then poking me with a sword trying to get out.
I'm able to sit up ok so far this morning, so I just wanted to write a few minutes before tackling the house and getting ready for Christmas morning. Have a few more presents to wrap and want to run the sweeper.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.
