Well, I got lots of sleep again, but only because when I would sit up my head would hurt and I would feel dizzy. So, I would lay back down. I'm up now, showered, and in pain. Nothing else is going on. Just waiting for Monday...it's not too far now.

Red Friday

Wear Red for Women's Heart Health

Yup, I'm actually wearing red while I sit around the house. At least I can participate in something!

Normal (for me) sleep last night, thank God. Headache hasn't changed much since yesterday except to center the most pain right between my eyes. Great.

No other things of importance (or even non-importance) have happened to me. SSDD

I'm just patiently waiting for my appointment with the new neurologist.

Up early!

Well, I knew I'd regret all that sleep yesterday...I got about 4 hours of sleep last night and I'm awake already. Oh, well. I'm hoping I'll get a nap later, but I can't fall back asleep right now. The headache is already building, but I'm hoping it's about at it's top pain level because it really hurts already. I really don't need it to get any worse.

Nothing else has gone on here. Just the same ol' routine. It sounds like the weather's going to be nice for a couple days, so we may be able to open doors/windows and enjoy it for a bit. Odd for February, but I'm not complaining! Near 70 degrees for the next few days. Of course, it's going to get cold again after that. Can't have everything.

If I think of anything amazing to tell, I'll be back. Ciao!

Sleep is good

Wow! I either can't sleep at all or I sleep and sleep and sleep. I finally got out of bed a little before noon today. I feel rested, but a tad disoriented. I'm having lunch now, so getting food in my system I'm sure will set me straight.

The headache was TERRIBLE yesterday. I was literally curled up in the fetal position in the recliner when Bobby got home. I was whiny and gripy, but he made me some dinner and brought it to me. After I ate, I fell into a sound sleep in my chair for several hours and woke up in pain, but not quite as grouchy.

So far, the headache isn't as bad today, but since I've been up such a short time, it's hard to judge. I just hope it doesn't get as bad as yesterday - I hate those days.

Nothing else going on here. I'm off to eat. Bye!

Trash Day

I'm sure all of you were wondering when our trash day was! I tried to come up with a moniker for the title, but my brain definitely is not working, so "Trash Day" it is.

The headache's staying pretty intense almost all the time. It's also covering a larger area of my head. It's making it more and more difficult to be nice. Good thing Bobby understands and when I start wincing, he knows it's time to stop conversation for a while. I did manage to do some laundry and a load of dishes yesterday. I also made dinner.....though I was definitely ready to get out of the kitchen when the hamburgers were done. I was sweating and felt not quite light-headed, but like a curtain was slowly being pulled over my mind. My hands were shaking and Bobby made sure I was ok to eat. Less than a week now to the appointment with the new neurologist! Here's hoping I can wait that long and that the pain doesn't keep getting worse.

Well, I better stop now. The headache's already making itself known (like I hadn't noticed). Nothing else going on here.

Groundhog Day

Well, I'm awake after 4 or 5 hours of fitful sleep and I'm in time to see if the groundhog sees his shadow. Woo-hoo. Live on tv, too. Technology making us proud, again.

My friend, the headache, has been at a higher level of pain since yesterday afternoon. It made it difficult to fall asleep, and then I couldn't stay asleep for any length of time. So, I got up out of bed. I'm hoping I fall asleep in my chair sometime today as I still feel in desperate need of sleep.

At least the football game was good last night....though I didn't listen to most of it (earplugs) because of the crowd noise. There are just certain sounds that just feel like they're echoing inside my head.

Before I go, here's what Punxsutawney Phil predicted (I'm not sure of the spelling, but it's something like that)..............6 more weeks of winter! Yes, the "Inner Circle" out east declared the groundhog saw his shadow. Amazing, since that part of the country was cloudy. :-)

Super Sunday

Hello! It sure is a nice day outside, isn't it? Yeah, that's right, I went outside today. :-)

Slept in a bit, then Bobby and I went to Target to get some Mountain Dew and a game for his Xbox 360 that was $20 off. Good thing we went when we did as there were only 2 of the games left when we got there. Pepsi products were on sale, so we grabbed some as Bobby was really suffering from a lack of caffeine. We then went and had lunch at Olive Garden, so we're both very full right now.

Of course, the headache's still there, I don't really feel all that great and the casual strolling around Target brought on some serious heat...I was just burning up. Oh, well. I feel better now, though I wish the headache would ease up some. I mute the tv when Bobby's not around, but reading the closed captioning only lasts for a bit before the required concentration starts to make the headache worse. Of course, many shows are just as good or better without the sound!

We'll just be hanging out watching the game tonight. Nothing exciting. Have a good day, everyone!
