What is it about Thursdays? I’ve been tracking when and how often I get headaches (and especially migraines), and it seems that Thursdays are taking the lead as far as the day of week I get them. I’ve noticed some recurring headache triggers –
– Diet Coke, if I drink it several days in a row
– Equal (the artificial sweetener)
– Red wine (sometimes, not always)
But why do they occur predominantly on Thursdays? I haven’t figured that one out yet.
I think maybe today’s headache is a combination of the rain and fatigue. I didn’t sleep well last night. I woke up from a horrible dream and had trouble falling asleep again.
The dream? I was at a homeowners association meeting and had to run home for some reason. As I’m walking out of the building I see Mr. Sociopath coming from the opposite direction carrying a few binders. I start shaking. I ask him what he’s doing here, and he tells me he’s attending the meeting. You can’t, I tell him. Yes, I can he says, because he has move into the neighborhood.
How could I sleep after that? Thinking of him living in the neighborhood – anywhere near me – is one of my worst nightmares.
I guess I could add nightmares and stress to the list of headache triggers.
