Bad Headache Day 29 2009
I wish I was a Steam Whistle
My blood pressure is through the roof and my head is ready to explode. I'm wish I was a steam whistle, and by pulling a cord all the pressure could just spew out of my head through my mouth as a great big WAHHH WAAAAAH. It works in cartoons!
I was able to work a couple of hours today, and actually got several things accomplished before The Headache interfered and I went home early. I've taken enough medication to normally knock me out for a few hours, but the pain was already high enough they aren't really working. I'm so used to my daily pain levels that sometimes the only way I can tell the pain is getting worse is by taking my blood pressure. It was plenty high, although I know I still have a way to go before I become the total quivering pile of jello that means a trip to the ER again. Hopefully I will get The Headache stopped before it gets to that point tonight.
This has been a bad week. I had forgotten what my life was like last year before I took indomethacin. If The Belly would just get with the program I might try taking daily indomethacin again. That's a pretty big if because The Belly is mad tonight: I ate some real food today and I didn't have my pancreatic enzymes with me. Silly Belly!
