Travel Alarm Clock, ca 1788, by Charles Le Roy. Marie-Antoinette have ordered this watch as a gift for the man thought to be her lover, Count Axel de Fersen, Ambassador and Marshall of Kingdom of Sweden.

Hildegard von Bingen, one of my very favorite medieval women: Doctor of the Roman Catholic Church, Benedictine nun, fellow migraine sufferer. Wise woman. Her “visions” and art were almost certainly influenced by her migraines.

chronicmigraineawareness:

Pain is very a subjective topic. Alot of people can having a raging migraine and call it a “7” whereas others can also having a raging migraine and call it a 9 or a 10.
