When I have to get up for work by 5:40am,
I'm usually tucked into bed and nearly asleep by now (11pm),
Tonight I'm wide awake and thinking it wouldn't do me any good to go to bed just yet.
Why?, you might ask....
Today I fought a headache at work, started just after my first case,
kind of my nagging typical headache. I took 600mg Ibuprofen.
As usual that did nothing and I worked through it.
On my way home (4pm) I stopped for some caffine, washed down 2 Excedrine Migraines,
hoping that would help. By the time I got home my head was throbbing,
I was nauseous and my eyes hurt to move.
I have self-diagnosed this as a migraine.
I lay'd down, it took about 1/2 hour to find a spot I could lay comfortably so my head didnt
feel like it was gonna blow off.
Some how I dozed until Rick came home at 6pm.
A short time later...probably about 7 I thought it safe to go for a third kind of OTC drug.
I hit-up the Aleve.
Finally...that kicked it, I woke up at 9:30pm and was afraid to move
(expecting the worse to come back).
The nausea left with the headache, so I had me a bit to eat and visited with my hubby.
I'm still headache free, pretty sure it's gone but I'm skeptical that's it's still lurking
as I feel a tinge of ache whenever I move my eyes.
Well 5:40 am will come soon enough, I should at least start the process of "bedtime".
I'm hoping I can fall asleep soon
and the headache doesn't return....ugh
