Thank You Santa!!

I got the best gift on Christmas morning.  It wasn’t under the tree (that would be pretty hard since we didn’t have one…but it wouldn’t have fit anyway).  It wasn’t wrapped.  I couldn’t touch it.  But it was the BEST present I have ever received!!

When I woke up Christmas day I didn’t have a headache!!!  Not at all!!!  I can’t recall waking up without a headache since I was 11 years old.  I have chronic daily headaches.  I always have a headache that ranks about a 2-3, then it’s much more if it’s a pressure headache or migraine.  Normally, I wake up with about a 6 or more because of the Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension.  Lying down all night, even with my bed on an incline, the pressure just builds.  There have been many days I’ve said, “Oh how I wish I could just wake up without a headache, just one day.”

Merry Christmas to me, I got my wish!!!   I woke up with NO headache.  Most of the day was headache free.  It did return that evening, but those hours headache free were magical!  Waking up headache free was simply miraculous!

I do believe in the magic of Christmas!

Thank you Santa!  I hope you can get around to giving out a few of the things I asked for on my Christmas List.

I feel like a little girl.

  1. Dear Santa,
    I believe in Magic and I know you are Magic so can you please give my good friend Wendy more of those headache free days (and nights) PLEASE? I will be extra good AND extra kind and I will do one thing right now to make my dream for her come true. Thanks, Santa! I believe in you!


    1. Deb, I’m not greedy, My one headache free morning was more than I thought it would be, then to have it last for so many hours!! I’m thrilled beyond measure. I have often asked Santa for a gift that I knew was just from him….I know I got it this year. Of course, I believe Santa is all the love and joy in the world and the miracles that follow that compassion. May you have many days of feeling well in the New Year. I had a pretty long list of wants this year, I’m sure he’ll be working on it throughout the year! hugs to you my friend


  2. I had two days after my jaw surgery when I was given oxy-something and I suddenly had no pain at all for about 2 out of every 4 hours. It was heavenly. I had forgotten what it felt like not to hurt. I still remember those hours…for those two days. Santa was good to you! Maybe 2014 will be a really good year for you!! I hope so. 🙂
