May 2017: I discovered that I can get rid of tension headaches in seconds. Once I know that it's my mind causing the pain, I tell myself that I don't need pain to distract me from the stress that I am going through and my headache stops. I have also been able to prevent them from starting. I usually feel pressure in my eyes before the tension headache takes over. In the past my headaches are so intense it hurts to move my eyes and they have lasted 24-48 hours. If they lasted more than 48 hours they would turn into migraine headaches. I have woken up to a bad headache and as soon as I know what is happening, I can make it go away.
