migraine

My older son, Michael has suffered greatly from migraines since the age of eight. I’ve had a few, with only one that approached the severity my son experiences. It’s a terrible thing to watch your child in pain. It looks like this…

    Wow! Wonderful art regardless if for such a painful subject!
    Yes that image accurately captures what they feel like. 😦
    I had a lot of those over the years until I cut a most of the sugar and caffeine out of my diet. Then they all but went away.
    Oddly…a single square of unsweetened baker’s chocolate helped quite a bit at times.
    Not meant as suggestions just information…

    Don’t get up on LJ often but happened to drop in at a lucky time and caught your migraine image. Wow!! Brilliant and dead on! Your work is fantastic. I ran across one of your pieces on the interweb and recognized it as one of yours by the feet (one of your barefooted crone pictures). You draw beautiful and distinctive feet.

    I’m so glad you both agreed!!
    Well, I’m not going to do this right now, but I’m really looking forward to it.
    At first, I need to look around a little, pick the best parlour… Of course, I will let you know as soon as I have it done! I hope it will happen fast, but if not at the moment, then at least in a few months.
    I’d be happy if you sent me this file on maja.the.ginger.bee@gmail.com
    I live in Poland, my name’s Maja- the reason why I chose coyote is because ‘mai’ is native american ‘coyote’. I find it marvelous, that I’ve found your drawing, I must be lucky!^^ And you’re an Artist πŸ™‚ Thanks a lot!

    Dear Thereallinda!
    I’ve found your drawing of a coyote, while looking for a coyote tattoo and I think it’s.. PERFECT.
    I want to have a tattoo made and I’ve fallen in love with that drawing, I would really love to use it.
    I just esteem you as a person and you work, too and I don’t know if Brni has used it , so I decide to ask you… Would you mind if a girl somewhere in the world would hold that coyote drawing on her skin?

      Re: Dear Thereallinda!
      Hi. I’m very flattered by your request. I asked Brni and he said it would be okay for you to use the coyote for your tattoo.
      Would you mind telling me who you are and when you have it done, some pictures to show us?
      If you like, I can send you the actual file which might be better than grabbing it off the internet. Send email to me,

    Your image is so dead-on that it brought me tears. I suffered one of mine earlier today.

    That’s interesting you posted this. Scientific American ran a drawing of what a migraine looked like to sufferers and it was very black and angular.
