Headache Smeadache...

Hola! Well I am happy to report that I didn't have to count any sheep last night. I still didn't sleep that great, but I guess it was better than it has been. I woke up with a SPLITTING, I mean SPLITTING headache though. I swear if it isn't one thing, it's another. Remember yesterday when I was talking about how I was scared of the unknown and what side effect would pop up next? Well, here comes another.

Thankfully the magic mouthwash really was in fact magic and the pain in my mouth/jaw has subsided for the most part. I'm still swooshing every 4 hours because I don't want that awful pain to come back, but for the most part I have that problem under control. Now I have headaches. I mean we all have headaches now and then and this could be a combination of a few different things...chemo, non-sleep, and the fact that I have pretty much eliminated caffeine from my diet. Well, not 100%...I think I've had 2 sodas in the last week...and no coffee. Maybe I'm crazy. This headache this morning was like a million times worse than when you wake up after a night of drinking. So crazy. I think it probably was a migraine, but who knows...I've never had one before. A couple Ibuprofen later I was golden...thank goodness but this damn headache keeps creeping back.

So, needless to say I didn't do much today but rest and try and kick this stupid pain in my head. I also started a pool service. My pool is pretty low maintenance to begin with but in all actuality it's too much for me to handle right now and it requires energy and time...time I have, but energy is limited. Especially with summer coming up, I just figured it was a wise decision and luckily I have a pool company connection. Thanks Loco. :)

I did get out of the house though...I went to see "Valentine's Day" with Aimee. It was a really cute movie, lots of good story lines, a great cast and just an overall good feeling movie. It still didn't change the fact that I still hate Valentines Day...

I think tomorrow I may muster up some energy to do a bit of cleaning and laundry and a trip to the grocery. It's also girls night out dinner for sushi with the Loco girls. I'm excited for that. It's not often that we can all get together and hang out (outside of work!).

So, that's the update for today...I am hoping that tonight I get good sleep and I wake up without some stupid pain of some sort. Can I be so lucky?? Damn right I can...

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, I love you tomorrow...

Love, E
