I haven't been much for writing lately - six-day migraine. Tonight I got some Imitrex off of eBay and voila! the headache is gone. Well, true, I didn't get it off of eBay, but boy-howdy the stuff is expensive. It's going to take a lot of Kool-Aid pouches to make up for those nine little pills. (Drink another, girls! Hey, take one to bed with you. We can wash the bedsheets.) Goodbye, sweet little NanoPod.

By the way: Congratulations, White Sox. Cheers! May your Halley's-Comet-esque Series wins become more frequent.

My sister, who was once a constant migraine sufferer, swears by encapsulated cayenne pepper. If you get it will a little ginger (some brands call it "Cool Cayenne") in the combo it doesn't burn your stomach.

Very cheap and effective.

Wow. I'll have to try that. Thanks, Alison (and Torey). Do you buy these cool cayenne pills at health food stores, GNC, or where? I'm guessing they're less expensive than $22.22/tablet?

So glad your migraine is gone. I'm sure it was miserable dealling with that and trying to be a good daddy too.

Try $8.19 for 100. The brand I have is Solaray. I would buy at a local health food store or at

It might take a little while to build up in your system but give it some time and see if it works for you.
