About 12 years ago, I had an episode where I saw lights flashing in front of my eyes.  I was in the store with my children and I felt really nauseated.  I had to sit down for fear of fainting.  I told my children that we had to go home right now.

When I got home I did vomit and then ended up in my bed for the next 3 weeks.  If I tried to stand up I had extremely sharp pain on the top of my head.  I did not want go to the emergency because it was the 24th of December and I really do not like hospitals.

I could not stand up so I had to crawl on the floor to go to the bathroom.  I was able to stand up after three days for about 15 minutes per day without the sharp pain.  I had to choose between eating with my family or taking a shower.

I went to see my chiropractor a little over a week into this.  I remember feeling a pain in my middle back before I saw the flashes; I figured it probably was a problem with my back.  He gave me an adjustment and it did not take care of the headache.

He suggested I go see my medical doctor because he could not see anything unusual with my back to provoke such pain.  In the meantime, I was taking pills every 2 hours alternating between ibuprofen 200 mg and gravol 50 mg.  That was not good but that was the only way I had at that point to be able to get up and do something.  It was taking the edge of the pain away.

I was in constant pain.  I went to my doctor.  He referred me to a neurologist.  They both thought I had an aneurysm.  I went through a series of tests and they found nothing.  The specialist, in his wisdom, told me it was all in my head!  He offered that I might have a virus and that it would go away eventually.

For the next 2 years, I had headaches every day, all day.  I did not need the gravol but the ibuprofen was controlling the pain just enough so I could do what I needed to do each day.  After the first two years, the headaches started to subside and be there mainly in the morning when I got up and sometimes during the day.

The next 10 years, I used to wake up with a headache every morning.  The intensity would vary from a 2 to 8 on a scale of 0 to 10.  When it was a small one I would not take any medication and hope it would go away on its own; that did not happen very often.  For big ones, I would need to take ibuprofen sometimes up to 3 to 4 times a day.

Since I started using EFT, I do not take any medication for my headaches.  I would get them once or twice a week and if one appears I would just tap it away.  The intensity was usually between 2 and 5, and if I get one, I simply tap, Even though I have this headache

A secondary effect to the tapping is that my allergies are not bothering me at all.  They have disappeared completely.  Every winter, I would get up with my nose clogged up and of course get a headache.  During the day I also had difficulty breathing and I had to take some medications but no more.

Gary suggested to me that if the headaches are still there, that there might be an emotional charge to them.  I have had so many different types of headaches over the years that just not taking medication for them was super great for me.  It never really occurred to me to look into the emotional aspect of the pain.

When I was writing this article, I had to go back to when it all started.  It was when I was going through a great deal of emotional turmoil within my marriage.  At the time, I knew it had something to do with the headache and that if I left my husband the headache would go away.  When I left, the next day I had no headache when I got up.  It did not last long but it felt so good.  I was a little frustrated because I thought that everything would be OK if I walked away from the pressure I felt at the time.

It does not matter how far you go, the emotions are within you - there is no hiding.  So I just did some tapping on this past event, and all the emotions that I thought were healed came flooding back to the surface.

Even though I left my husband...

Even though I feel so guilty...

Even though I hate that I hurt him....

Even though I had such a childish reaction...

I am so sorry for putting the family through such an ordeal.  I need to forgive myself for this. Actually I forgive myself for this.  I really did what I taught was the best course of action at the time.  After all everything turned out really well.

I tapped on all the different points as I was talking to myself.  I felt a lot of energy release as a lot of sighing, a lot of tears.  It did bring up a lot of buried emotions.  I usually do not get emotional that easily.  I did touch a core issue.  I was not done.

Even though I have difficulty forgiving myself I have suffered long enough, I played the martyr long enough … I don't need to carry this old friend with me anymore … I forgive myself.

Even though I still have some difficulty forgiving myself, I find it so difficult ...  I know that my husband did forgive me.  We are back together and everything is great between us.  I have suffered long enough … I want my head back.  I love and accept myself deeply and completely and I totally forgive myself.

I tapped on the different points while saying I want my head back.  I was smiling when I was doing that one.

This is how I deal with an emotional issue when I am alone.  I did a survey with emphasis to test if I have anything left with this event and nothing came to the surface.

It has now been 24 days since then I have not had a single headache since then. This is quite a contrast compared to having them perpetually.
