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.
