Long hot showers.
Dark cool rooms.
Calling in sick, especially if you break out into gaspy, uncontrollable sobs on that call, terrifying both you and your boss.
Turning off your phone.
Listening to Terry Gross.
Aspirin? Results somewhat unclear.
Gasping and sobbing into your palms for no predetermined acceptable amount of time.
Having a person you can call who will not be terrified by your heavy crying? Have not yet tried, imagine it would very much help.
Admitting that sometimes our blinding physical pain is mostly mental pain and sometimes that makes it hurt even worse.
Warm thick soup and hearty bread.
Bringing your knees into your chest and holding on tight.
Repeating: everything is going to be fine.
Repeating: this is not a panic attack. (May very well be a panic attack).
Not standing up to quickly or perhaps at all.
Down dog when it feels safe.
Staring off into space when the colors behind your eyelids become too overwhelming.
Soft light blankets.
Soft loose clothes, better yet, no clothes.
Sitting on the edge of the tub, elbows on knees, head in palms.
An eye mask, a thick fabric headband works equally well.
A quiet mind? Have not yet achieved, imagine it would work wonders.
Once the migraine has passed, transportation rejuvenates, mostly empty trains are magic, driving on an open road is good.
