I've spent the last three days at the mercy of a punishing tension headache. I woke on, I think, Wednesday night with what felt like a pulsing vice around my skull. It had been getting worse for about a day but it was so bad in the middle of the night that I thought: I have a brain tumor. This is it. It's a tumor. I'm fucked. And my health insurance is basically nonexistent. I spent the next 24 hours massaging my own neck. The headache has finally gone away.
