I've been having one all week. I try not to whine about it but I have had a more-or-less constant headache since the autumn of 1996 and the last couple of weeks, thanks in part to weather and in part from some dental work -- she rebuilt a tooth, very pretty but not quite the same shape, which is a big problem if you grind your teeth in you sleep. Add in what the cold does to my knee and my pain level's been pretty high all week. This makes me short-tempered and no fun to be around -- heck, I don't wanna hang around me -- and it's all downhill from there. Getting anything done is like running in a nightmare:, huge effort for little progress.
Cherry on top: halfway through previous paragraph, my headache ramped up to the stabbing-pains-behind-both-eyes, all light is too bright level. A hot shower will help a little, as will the OTC pain meds I took when I got up. This kind of thing used to worry me -- fifteen years and endless doctoring later, I am confident it's just another damn headache. So, hey, that's actually something good.
