I suffer from migraines. Not often, maybe one or two a month, but they keep me from doing all of the things that I have to do in a days time. They are usually triggered by stress, odors like diesel or bleach, or loud noises like walking into a Forever 21 store.
Locking myself in a dark room is
hard impossible to pull off when you are a caregiver. Caregivers are like mail carriers: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers caregivers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”.
I can’t just say, “Hey, mom can you manage your Alzheimer’s today? I have a migraine?” That wouldn’t work out to well. Either the house would be burnt to the ground or all of the furniture would be piled on top of each other because it may come a storm! Yeah, welcome to my world!
Enter my friend Lisa Jacobson. She is the creator of a product called the Migraine Hat. Below is a video that explains it better than I ever could.
She mailed me one of these hats months ago. She is a migraine expert! She has had thousands of migraines in her lifetime and has now made it her mission to bring awareness and aid to the migraine sufferers of the world.
I absolutely LOVE this hat! I can’t believe that something so simple can help with migraines better than any other product that I have tried and believe me I’ve tried A LOT! From medicines to acupuncture and nothing helped until now!
As you can see from the images and video you put the ice pack inside and then you Velcro it together to make a hat that is comfortable and doesn’t look bad at all. I have worn mine out a few times and no one was able to tell that it held ice packs inside of it!
The best way to deal with a migraine is to figure out what triggers yours and then do your best to avoid those triggers. Of course, that’s not always possible and in that case the Migraine Hat is my secret weapon.
It was created specifically for migraines, but a couple of weeks ago when the hot flashes were driving me crazy I put on my hat and guess what? I felt better instantly. I’ve even used it when I was sick and running a fever! It is one of my most prized possessions and I never leave home without it!
Mine came with two ice packs so there is always a frozen one ready to use and it also came with it’s own little carry case that makes it easy to pack. I can’t imagine life without it now! If you suffer from migraines or hot flashes you really should invest in one of these babies! They’re very affordable at $29.99.
