I've been at home Monday and Tuesday with a killer headache and not eating much (pain will do that to you!) I had an eye exam to see if my rx had changed or something but it wasn't that. I stopped at WalMart last night and bought Excedrin and a couple of caffeinated colas and tried knocking it out that way. It mostly helped. Enough that here I sit at work, Excedrin down, a hefty-sized cherry coke mostly empty and my head down to a lesser throb. I guess if it helps me lose the headache that its worth having to kick the cola habit again. I just read my brother's blog though and he mentions combining Advil and Tylenol...it apparently works miracles on his migraines and he doesn't need the caffeine. Something I would have been happy to learn yesterday!
I think that its stress more than anything else. I have a lot of it right now in the form of working extra hours even though I was sick, school, etc etc....I think its all just catching up to me. Not much I can do at the moment about work...or school for that matter. I tried seeing if I could take a month off but it was no-go...they just aren't set up for people to take a break. If I don't feel better by this evening though I am going to stop by the registrar's office and insist she give me this month off; seriously, its not worth killing myself over. As for the etc etc....I am not sure what I can do there either since I feel hideously guilty for saying "no" to people. I plan to stop at WalMart again tonight and see if those "Stress tabs" really work. I certainly hope so because this headache is driving me crazy.
