Preparing for BlogHer '10 has me thinking about which items I absolutely must bring to be prepared for migraine attacks and what I might be able to get away with leaving at home. It's a bit of a difficult balance. If I was driving I'd bring an entire tote bag of things I might need. Since I'm flying I just don't have that luxury, but I hate to leave anything essential behind and kick myself for it later. And let's just say I don't exactly have the gift for packing light.

Essentials:
  • Treatment medications - smaller amounts than I might usually take
  • Zip top bags for ice and in case nausea turns to vomiting
  • Sleeping mask
  • Ear plugs
  • iPod
  •  Origins Peace of Mind On the Spot Relief
I truly think I can make do with these items. And if the worst happens and I can't I've already scouted out the nearest Duane Reede and Walgreens pharmacies.
