I just woke up from a four-hour nap, which is something I am entirely not happy about. I had a bad headache when I got home from work, so I took some Advil (ibuprofen) with dinner, and right after eating I lied down for what I thought would be oh, about a half hour. Hah, yeah right. I mean, I woke up after about an hour and a half and my headache was gone. I sent a couple of tweets, and then fell back to sleep before I had even seriously contemplated getting up. I woke up again at 8:30pm. Not cool, bro. Not cool.
I think the headache came from not eating enough today. You see, I was finally able to put shoes on after a falling shower door ripped off my toenail just over a week ago, so I went to the gym today before work for the first time in eleven days. The gym was great, cool, yeah, but obviously when I work out, I have to eat more to compensate. I had a snack after I got home from the gym and brought an extra snack to work, but I was still really hungry around 3:30pm, even after eating that extra snack. Well, as any migraine sufferer probably knows, not eating enough can be a real trouble maker. That in combination with working in front of a computer screen for eight hours caused a real mess in my head.
You should have seen me making dinner. I kept thinking, “I don’t care if this even tastes good, I just need to get food in my mouth as quickly as possible.” I made a microwaved chicken and cheese quesadilla, for the record, and it tasted spectacular. Weirdly though, I could barely taste my dessert at all. I guess that’s the difference between hunger getting in the way of incapacitating head pain and incapacitating head pain getting in the way of eating a little bit more when my stomach is no longer empty.
I suppose all is well now, so I really can’t complain.
I joined Klout for a second and deleted it about a second later because I wanted to see what it was. It said I was influential about cereal. Also pancakes.
