Migraine or Heartburn

All this week SM has been in classes to achieve a "certified" level in his field.  Mon, Tues and Wed he was in Greensboro.  It's only a few hours away so he opted to drive back and forth each day.  This meant that my "I'm not a morning person" guy had to get up with me each morning.  I'm a 4:30 to 5 "am-er".

Today, SM needed to be in Goldsboro for an 8 hour continuing education course he needed for his license.  Goldsboro is about 4-5 hours away.  I set the alarm for 3:30 and we both woke up by 3am. (Neither of us have slept well lately.)

By the time he left at 4, I could feel a headache starting.  By 9am (and a few tylenol later) I knew it was a migraine.  I hate migraines.  I only get them a few times a year but "geez.." what a waste of a day. 

I have noticed that caffine can really "zap" the impact of a migraine with me.  (Constricts the blood vessels.)  But caffine is on my "no-no" list because of the reflux effect with my H-Hernia.

So which is worse? The pain of a migraine? or heartburn?

Migraine hands down.

So for the past hour I've been enjoying some chocolate.  It was a toss up between a diet pepsi and the chocolate.  Both are on the "no-no" list.  But I fiqure if I'm going to be bad, I'm going to enjoy it.  (grin)

Ummm...chocolate.  I feel better already.

  1. That chocolate craving has to be from your childhood when dad sold it.
