The Tramadol Dr. Easley prescribed for me actually works to control the pain. I’ve taken three tablets since yesterday and have been almost completely pain-free. It’s wonderful to have my head not hurt. Before, my headaches kind of reminded me of the story of Zeus and Athena — Zeus had terrible headaches, so bad that he actually had his son Hepaestus split his skull open, and out popped Athena, fully formed. It felt to me sometimes like someone was trying to punch their way out of my head.
I slept all day today. I do mean ALL day. I don’t think that was the Tramadol, though. I think I was just exhausted from all the chronic pain.
