I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one...

Holy mother of mercy. So, Friday was a terrible day for me. I woke up with a headache, and at first I was like, "Oh, well, I'm just dehydrated." So I drank some water. And then some more water. But nothing changed, it just kept getting worse. Then Rachel gave me some yogurt and granola, and about halfway through I started to feel nauseous.

About an hour later, I threw up. After an hour or so of shuttling back and forth between the bedroom and the bathroom, I managed to get rid of the rest of what little was in my stomach. Then I went to sleep for awhile (thank god), woke up, and laid in the dark watching little flashes of light that persisted in my eyes until Rachel got home from a Fiction Collective meeting at Li'l Chef (and briefly got up and got ice for my head and listened to Tiff talk while she was stoned). Rachel brought me Pepto Bismol, painkillers, a thermometer, saltines, ginger ale, and chicken soup (bless her). After a little while I started feeling better, and managed to eat, like, five Teddy Grahams, some saltines, and some of the broth from the chicken soup.

Now I'm feeling generally better, but I told my mother about this and she was just like, "Migraine." Which is not something I want to hear. I've never had a headache that caused me to puke before, although I know it's something that can happen. It may have been caused by not having any caffeine for more than a day, but that's the only thing I can think of that I did differently. So I hope that's it. I've had chronic headaches since I was 12 or whatever, but I would really like to avoid the migraine thing.

The cat is playing with a fluorescent orange earplug. He loves those things for some reason. It's actually sort of cute at the moment. :)

Also, yesterday was Rachel's (aka kleenexwoman's) birthday! Happy birthday, bb! :*

  • Don't talk to me about life.

    I feel like I should write in here, at least for myself. So I will. Hah. The beginning of my semester was murderous, due to one of the off-campus…

  • I'm not cool enough for the Internet

    Whoa, so I go to update and find a mostly-written entry about last semester's terrible Harry Potter class. I totally don't even remember writing it.…

  • Another drive-by update

    It's a bit sad that updating has become a bi-yearly affair for me, but it's an unfortunate side effect of working and trying to pull my life…
