A Squirrel Named "Chuck"
I think I have finally figured out the root of my migraine problems, and it didn't even take an elaborate medical test or an expensive diagnosis from a specialist. There is a squirrel living in my head and his name is Chuck.
How do I know this? Because time after time, I have described the worst pain in my head as being "squirrelly". Why would such a description pop into my head, if a squirrel wasn't living in it?
It would also explain my intense craving for nuts and my desire to feed the squirrels around my house peanuts on my front porch.
Please don't think I'm crazy, but since the medical community has failed me and they have no more explanations for my migraines than I do, Chuck The Squirrel, is just as good as a possibility.
So if you're a migraineur, what is the name of the critter living inside your head?
