Today I woke up somewhere around 4:30 am.
There was a pain in my head, my shoulders were tense.
I knew at that very moment that the rest of my day was going to be spent in pain and there was nothing I could do about it - but that didn't stop me from trying.
I got up and took monster out for a quick piss.
Upon getting back into the apartment I grabbed a water and some Tylenol and downed the entire bottle (of the former, not the latter). I tried to get some shut-eye.
The rest of my "sleep" was restless and my dreams sucked.
By the time I awoke permanently around 6:30 my head was feeling worse. Searching my brain for ways to fight a nasty headache I decided to try a banana and some caffeine, a Rock Star.
I also downed a Mt Dew on the way to work along with a muffin and a sausage patty.
Let me digress a bit here. Burger king sucks when it comes to breakfast food. Their muffin with sausage and cheese pretty much sucks compared to the McDonalds McMuffin. McD's has better sausage and there is something better about even the muffin portion of the meal. There is also the fact that McD's has probably one of the best (worse for you) breakfast foods ever invented in their McGriddle. I feel my McArteries hardening when eating them but McDammit if they aren't McTasty. Sausage surrounded by two pancakes with the syrup baked right into them? How can anyone not McLove that shit?
Also, their Hash Brown is MUCH better than the BK Hash Browns. I love the big greasy patty hash brown over the small bite sized tater tot versions that BK has. However, if they want back to Cheesy Tots then all bets are off as those things were fucking delicious. Everything I ever love goes away, including Cheesy Tots.
When I got to work I drank another bottle of water and then I hit up a large bottle of Gatorade. The electrolytes didn't do shit for me. The water did nothing either. It is apparent to me that this is no ordinary headache, it's not a dehydration headache, it's not a hangover headache, it's pretty much a "just fuck with serge" headache.
Nothing I have done all day long has given me any relief. It's a dull throbbing all day long surrounded by periods of intense pain. I don't think it's a migraine because I don't have a sensitivity to light - in a dark room I felt no relief and felt no different than when I was outside in the bright ass sun.
So, here I sit - over 18 hours later - cracking another Diet Dew and popping some more Tylenol like an addict even though they haven't done any good all day long and they won't now. It's just the thought that if I'm not doing something then I'm doing it wrong. However - this probably means that I'm crazy.
Crazy, by definition, is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
This is what I have done today - what a fucking idiot I am sometimes. Lock me up and throw away the butt-plug.
I'm hoping the magical headache fairy visits me tonight and takes this pain away.
Maybe while she's there she can give me a good wet dream to ending my slumber as well.
Anyone know of any good ideas/solutions/remedies for the next time this happens?
Please avoid any suggestions involving any aspirin products as I'm allergic and it fucks with my asthma.
