Jonathan Larney has an unusual headache problem, as his headache doesn't stop. Over two years have passed and he is still waiting for it to take a much needed break. I guess you could say that the headache signed an unusually long lease with his head and frankly, it was all done without the consent of the landlord, who has tried very hard to evict the annoying and painful tenant.

Applying leeches to suck out the pressure, drilling a hole in the side of his head with a drill bit, these are just some of the remedies that he hasn't tried yet. But as far as things he has tried, the list is quite extensive. In this tell-all memoir, he puts new meaning to the phrase, "I have a headache." Battling grueling medications, dragging himself to countless specialists, suppressing a ton of mushy feelings making him regret not being a robot, and that doesn't even include the headache part.

Nearly everyone can relate to having a headache. It interrupted your day, triggered a frustrated brow, made you leave work early, or altered your plans in some way. What happens though when a headache does more than interrupt your day, but interrupt your life? He had the displeasure of finding out.

This narrative looks into how terrible it would be if the headache condition manifested and didn't go away. It reveals that not everyone is as fine as they look, and some go to great lengths to appear normal. Lastly, it analyzes what happens when something unexpected happens in life and how one young adult did his best to make the most of his persistent headache. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the story behind why his head hurts.

From the Back Cover:

Have you ever considered the possibility that there might be a voodoo doll of you? Whatever pain is inflicted into the doll, whether that be pins, heat, or physical manipulation, it simultaneously affects you. I often wonder if someone is using one of these dolls to manipulate my life. Their first vengeful act involved sticking pins across the head of the doll, thus giving me a headache. I suspect that my foe failed to take the pins out though, as two years have passed, and I've suffered the same constant headache ever since.

Everyone gets headaches. For most, take some aspirin or sleep it off and presto, the headache magically vanishes. Let's pretend for a moment that these rules suddenly changed and your headache never went away. You woke up and went to sleep every day with the same headache, never knowing when or if it would ever stop. The rules changed for me. This memoir chronicles the journey I went on, as I attempted to solve the mystery behind the persistent headache.
