Not Tonight, Dear...

Can you complete that sentence? That's right! I have a headache. It is a brutal mofo, too. Drifter gave me two aspirin...nothing. Maybe I need acetaminophen or ibuprofen...who takes aspirin anymore? Earlier in the day, I hoped it might be a hunger headache, but eating lunch didn't cure me either! Now that I stop to consider it, it is probably hormonal...like everything else in my life.
I will close now, as I don't like to complain. I'll be fine, don't give it another thought. No, you kids go ahead and have fun! If I pass out, I'm sure the carpet will cushion my fall. (That, btw, is my selfless mom bit! Do you like it?)

I go for the Tylenyol quick release caps and some caffeine when these hit. Get better soon!

I like my Advil Liqui-Gels, they work quickly. I hope your headache goes away soon.

I am an Advil guy for headaches. I think that is the only medicine I take.

May the headache leave you and may you get back on your feet and roaring again.

That's what you need to do, me thinks. You need to pass out and give your body some much needed rest. You've been under lots of stress with that WTG guy and the headache is your body's way of telling you that enough is enough and sleep is necessary. That's my theory, as I have cured many seemingly incurable headaches by sleeping...or leaving the office.

ice pack, back of the head/neck. And Excedrin Migraine...whether it's a migraine or not. That does the trick for me...sometimes.

Feel better soon.

Wow that does sound like mom to me.
Take some pills and have a beer on top of it - at least you will be out of it for awhile...

okay, maybe dont mix the drugs with alcohol. I did that once, by mistake and man, I dont recall anything. Hmm, yeah definitely dont take my advice (I am hormonal - you see).

MiniJonB: I had definitely considered that not having had coffee might have been a mistake.
Thanks!

AlienCG: At home I took two generic acetaminophen and it did the trick for me. Yay!

Evil-E: Little, yellow, different. Advil are like the Bobby Lee's of the medical world. hee hee! I feel better, can you tell?

Tara: WTG does give me headaches! We had a HUGE fight last night, but luckily it was after my headache was gone...then I went to bed and passed out :-)

Not: I did feel almost guilty complaining, because I've never even had a migraine and I know that is much worse. So I get the guilt almost as well as I give...

Viki: haha! I shoulda went ahead and had a drink anyway. I'm sure it would have made the whole night at least a bit better :-)

It sounds like you're feeling better. I hate headaches in any form. Drugs and sleep. Those are my sure fire cures.

Churlita: My headache did disappear. Drugs and sleep..I can definitely get behind that!
