I couldn’t stay that way long because I needed to vomit. My father brought a large bowl from the kitchen so I didn’t have to get up. Vividly, I remember him wiping my face with a cold cloth and gently rubbing my back until I fell asleep. My mother had these “headaches,” too. At the age of six, I didn’t really understand them, but I knew my mother would sometimes be in bed with her headaches for days.
