So sorry for sucking at replying to comments and anything else I've not been able to do, but I have a valid-ish excuse.  It's something terribly mundane and gross sounding at the same time: CLUSTER HEADACHES otherwise endearingly known as "suicide headaches" (which totally makes me feel better, not).  From my google/WebMD search (I know self diagnosis is not smart, but when you feel like you want to rip your brain out of your ear with a needle-nosed pliers because you're sure there's a metastasizing tumor wrapping around your optic nerve and you can't get into the doctor for a week, speculative answers are better than none) apparently these babies are super intense (think red hot poker pressed into one part of your brain over and over and over and over....) and super painful (gee, really?) and nobody knows why they happen or how they go away and can last for hours to days to week to months.  WTF HEAD!????  Whyyyyyyyy?  So besides not feeling 100%, I end up freaking out the world at large (because, you know, kids and life mean that I can't just crawl into a dark hole under my house and die) by lurching around wincing and trying not to clutch my head.  And I made myself laugh yesterday realizing that I probably look like Sam Winchester having a vision with all the staggering and wincing while trying to act like absolutely nothing is wrong because it's embarrassing to be in the middle of Target staring at baby butt cream and obviously looking like you're having psychic death visions.  Oh gah, this is so not funny that's it's stupidly hilarious in a dumb way.  So, yeah, I was sincere in my yay!Meta post and have lots of Show thoughts and want to be all talky about 9x01, but my brain has other ideas for the foreseeable future.  :(  So annoying....

Hi! So sorry to hear that you are having excruciating headaches. At least we can be relatively sure that an ArchDemon did not feed you demon blood as a child? nor are you destined to trigger the Apocalypse?

I still remember my offspring quoting Dean in the hospital when he had his copperhead bite. :P "I can't do it. It's too big." And then me realizing he was ACTING.

I thought you might find this post of Killabeez useful, about headache triggers. Do you know her?

I hope something will help. If Castiel were God he would smite your headaches I bet.

HUGS.

Bwhaaahaa. I sure hope not to all of the above.

"I can't do it. It's too big." And then me realizing he was ACTING.

I remember that post of yours. :)

I don't know her, but I've read some of her fic, which was excellent. Thanks so much for rooting out that link! Very informative, but, wow, a lot of those food triggers except for alcohol would be hard, but not impossible to cut out of my diet (garlic, aged cheese, chocolate and dundundunnnn sugar).

Smiting Castiel would be pretty awesome to have at my disposal. I suppose if I have another headache I should try praying to Thursday's angel.

Man, I am sorry to hear that you're so unwell. I get migraines from time to time, so I know how debilitating a severe headache can be. I can't even imagine how you manage to care for your kids and husband when hit with one of those headaches. *hugs*

Ugh, migraines. The only semi-OK thing about these headaches was that I wasn't completely incapacitated and, yay, no nausea. Luckily A has a flexible job and he's on sabbatical this semester (even though we opted not to go anywhere and he still keep regular work hours at his office), so he's not teaching, which frees him up a tiny bit.

Thanks so much. I'm obviously feeling better now. \o/ Hopefully I won't get a reprise anytime soon if EVER.

Cluster headaches = pure evil.

It sounds like you've experienced them. O.O I did get to a doctor a week later and she said, "We'll talk about treatment if it happens again." So hopefully there isn't an "again" ever.
