I don’t get headaches too often. Now and then I’ll get a mild sinus headache that can be taken care of with a couple of ibuprofen, and that’s about it. Yesterday I woke up with one such headache except ibuprofen didn’t touch it. In fact is just got worse and worse as the day wore on. I managed to work only two hours before I could no longer look at the computer screen. I gave up and tried to lay down.
Part of what caused the headache was a stressful night, lack of sleep, and the beginnings of allergy season. I tried to lay down and sleep it off but the rooms downstairs were too bright. Having some room darkening roller shades would have come in handy, but instead I went upstairs to our bedroom where the room was darker. Every time I dozed off Randy (our golden retriever) decided to bark loudly. This happened no less than 20 times (I’m not exaggerating either…) I’ve never been so angry at one of my dogs as I was yesterday in my headachy, sleepy, groggy, and miserable state.
Anyway, this seems to be how I get seasonal allergies. I get a sinus headache from hell, then I’m done. Compared to what Jack goes through this time of year, every year, and how long it lasts, I think I have the better end of the deal.
