Since I can’t come up with new post, I thought it might be a good idea to sometimes post my daily pages. I try to write something every day about anything, like a diary but with out all the “mooshmoosh”, some pages are filled with complaints about this and that, some are semi philosophical rampages and others just a record of some event or image spotted on the way to work.

I can’t take this cold anymore. It has been two months since the winter brought freezing winds and a month since the last warm day. The cold seems to have taken permanent residence in my bones and the boiling hot summer has been completely erased from my memory.
Further more I’ve lain awake half the night, not only due to Boyfriend’s sleep-walking (what a pain!), but also – mostly – because of an incredible headache that made it almost impossible to relax. It felt like a snake was inside my skull, strangling my brain.
I think I eventually fell asleep for about an hour untill my alarm clock rudely awoke me and the pain took over my senses full force.
It took four aspirin (or something alike) this morning to get me in a semi functional state.
These headaches keep returning, reeking havoc on my overall state of being for some days on end, disappearing again sometimes for as long as a few months.
These headaches started when I was about twenty years old and after suffering from them for six months on end I finally decided it might be time to see the doctor, who – after prescribing painkillers which in fact killed nothing but my motor skills – sent me to a neurologist. This man in turn had – after months of tests and diets – nothing to say but that it was probably just a life fase and I would most probably “grow out of it” soon enough.
Nine years later and – although less frequent – I still suffer from paralyzing headache… Snakes strangling and bees eating my brain.
