So remember when I said that I had figured out the cause of my insomnia, and that I had like, totally cured it?
Oh, and my headaches. They’re back too.
With a vengeance.
I am still sleeping with my cellphone away from my bed, and I am trying to get into bed at a reasonable hour. But even though I seem to be falling asleep really quickly, I have such a broken sleep, that I wake up exhausted. Some might blame me waiting for the last possible minute to get out of bed in the mornings to the cold, as we’re about to enter winter, but it’s not that. Even though I’m not a morning person, I do what I gotta do, and that includes getting up at some god awful hour. As it is I’m up at 4am every morning to put our geyser on, so that there’s hot water to shower with. My mistake is getting back into bed after putting the geyser on (it takes maybe 2 minutes to get up, put it on and go back to bed) and then sleeping until 5:30am. But seriously, what am I supposed to do from 4am other than sleep? I am so tired at 4am, that studying would be fruitless as I doubt that I’d retain anything, and the 7 odd hours of sleep that I am getting a night is not helping me at all, because it’s not even a solid 7 hours. I don’t know how much sleep I get, but if I could estimate it at about 4-5 hours a night, I think that would be generous.
And now my headaches… I haven’t had one of these nasties in about 2 months, and it’s been fantastic. Then this last Saturday, I felt it starting. I managed through the animal farm, but when we got back to my mom’s house I absolutely had to rest on my mom’s couch. I then only ended up going home with M-L close on 7pm because my head was so sore, and my vision was so bad that I didn’t feel comfortable driving. I then worked on Sunday, with the headache, and at about 10am, I was seriously close to asking the owner if I could go home. That would have meant no money at all, but it was baaaaad. I took 2 painkillers (which did absolutely nothing) and just carried on. Yesterday at work my headache subsided a bit at about lunch time and was manageable, but came back with a flying kick in the evening. I was in bed so early last night, purely because I couldn’t sit up in the lounge. Now this morning, I actually just want to cry. Aaaand sitting in front of my laptop typing this, is not helping. But alas, 95% of my job is done sitting behind my laptop.
I am ‘used’ to these headaches, but not like this. I usually get them at a certain time in the month (oh yes, hahaha) but it’s so out of sync this month that I’m actually a bit confused. The husband (as always) is worried, but I just tend to brush it off, and grin and bear it.
But I would really like my bed, some schedule 7 painkillers and darkness for the next 8 hours.
