Though some headaches are symptoms of other illnesses and conditions, such as high blood pressure or lupus, 90 percent are primary headaches, a category that includes cluster, tension-type and migraine headaches.
Migraines - Most people associate migraines with nausea, one-sided pain and sensitivity to light and sound, but these symptoms are inconsistent because there is a wide spectrum of migraine headaches.
Tension-type headaches - They are marked by a tightening sensation and affect both sides of the head. They may also be chronic, occurring frequently or even every day.
Sinus headaches - People with sinus problems will definitely experience headaches.
Cluster headaches - These are relatively rare, and 85 percent of sufferers are male. The headaches come in "clusters", with severe, one-sided pain attacks lasting from 15 minutes to three hours and recurring as often as two to five times a day for weeks at a time.
Environmental Changes - For some individuals a scent of bleach or ammonia can set their head pounding. For others, exposure to paint, smoke, scented candles or perfume does the trick. More environmental triggers include the flicker of fluorescent lighting and a change in altitude, which is something to remember when you're planning a vacation. Air travel, in particular, is a headache minefield: altitudinal changes, time zone differences, low moisture levels in the cabin, disrupted sleep and heavily processed airline food are all potential triggers.
Pain Medication - Headache pain remedies can do more harm than good if they're used too frequently and over an extended period. So be careful.
If I will select which category triggers my headache, I will say it's the Migraines and Environmental Changes. (To be continued...)

I think I have come to the point where I need to get myself busy. Well, I am busy at home. What I mean is the idea of working again comes into my mind. My husband and I talked about it lately. He is okay with the idea of me working again.
There are lots of career options running in mind right now. But I find some to be quite difficult for me to acquire. It is required to have a certificate when you apply for a job here in

Angel Baby of Yourcaringangels shared this article with me. I chose to post it here. I am all for peace and a peaceful solution to problems around the world. Since we are all into peace and sportsmanship, I am inviting you to join me in this global handshake which will go all round the world to the Beijing Olympics.
The following message from the wonderful people at Avaaz is very much in this spirit:
As the Beijing Olympics begin, the world looks on with mixed emotions. This is a moment which should bring us closer together, and Chinese citizens deserve their excitement — but the Chinese government still has not opened meaningful dialogue on Tibet, or changed its stance on Burma, Darfur and other pressing issues.
Riots and disruptions of the Olympic torch relay have only helped nationalists whip up Chinese anger. But we cannot stay silent — so what can we do? The answer comes from the Dalai Lama himself, in an unambiguous gesture of Olympic spirit and friendship: a handshake.
It began in London, passed hand to hand by thousands of us — now the handshake has gone online, and is criss-crossing the globe on its way to Beijing. All of us can join, Chinese and non-Chinese, and it comes with a promise: to hold ALL our governments accountable where they fall short, in

- Wash with care - avoid harsh soaps or overly hot water.
- Become a sleeping beauty - sleep early and apply a night cream before going to bed.
- Do not smoke - smoking not only wreaks havoc in your lungs, it also makes your skin age quickly.

After a very long process and waiting, this is a relief to me and my husband. Not mentioning the increasing fees and travel, I guess it's worth it. I am now a legal resident of the USA.

My friend Nori had her hair cut Thursday. She said it is getting long and like me, she is not able to manage it because of the busy working schedule. She added that her hair easily gets split ends. She is having a hard time looking for hair care products. I told her to get herself Wen Hair Care products. The Styling Crème, Cleansing Conditioner, and the Re Moist Intensive Hair Repair Mask suits her good because it is formulated to moisturize, polish, and strengthen each hair strand that prevents split ends. The hair looks and smells amazing after. I like the thought that Wen Hair Care is ideal for all hair lengths, shapes, and types. And I love the Sweet Almond Mint scent of the conditioner. Certainly, using these products to maintain our hair's beauty is a rewarding choice. So, there are no worries for Nori and also for me.

Whenever my friends and I got the chance to talk, one of the topics was about investments. Investment like engaging into a business is I guess a good thing to do. Planning to have a business is very complex and picturing the plan on how to start is quite confusing.
Small business financing companies might be of great help to people who are planning to put up a business. There are many loan companies everywhere but Unsecured Solutions gives the convenient financing scheme with affordable rates and great terms that cannot be found anywhere else. Online access with them is easy because loan types like start-up loan, personal loan, and small business loan are suitably categorized for borrowers’ needs. Loans can be used to finance a business’ expenses like payroll, advertisements, revolving fund, and others. And applicants can actually check their pre-qualification in two minutes in their website.
Putting up a business needs good planning, keen feasibility study, and capital, of course. Along with this, getting the right financing can be a complicated and overwhelming task. Unsecured Solutions’ loan consultants will guide borrowers through their small business loans application.
We are so concerned about the tough economic situation right now. We cannot even depend on a job especially when the salary is not enough. And thinking about having a small business would be simple with the assistance of Unsecured Solutions. My friends will definitely consider this idea.

Until now, honestly, I still have it. But I am telling myself to put the ill feelings away because my brother-in-law is doing his best working for his family in the Philippines. I was kind of dramatic when I spoke to him today. Especially when he said "I love my family. I hope Tatay and Mama, and you are not mad at me anymore". I told him that what happened in the past was unexpected. What's important is we learned our lesson from the mistakes done before. And his married relationship with my sister will become stronger at all times.
I want to tell my brother-in-law and my sister that whatever happens, the family is always here.
Note: Continuation of this post is on my next entries. I need to get some sleep.
