About this time last week I awoke with a miserable sinus headache. Over the course of the next few days it never went away. It sometimes lessened in intensity, but sometimes it triggered a migraine. My regular migraine medication (Maxalt) would help the migraine, but the sinus headache remained.
Yesterday it was more intense than it had been previously. Feeling truly crappy, I dragged myself to the office. As the day wore on, I felt worse and worse. Finally, at 3:00 pm I gave up and turned in a sick leave request for the remaining 90 minutes of my workday.
I drove to my neighborhood Walgreen's and purchased over-the-counter sinus medication and nasal spray. When I got home, I checked in with Mom and Dad, took a dose of the sinus medicine, sprayed my nose, nibbled a few crackers, and went immediately to bed.
I slept for a few hours, then awoke for awhile in the middle of the night. (Just in case you wondered, there's not much to watch on TV in the middle of the night.) I finally dozed off again and slept until 5:00 this morning.
I'm feeling a bit better. The headache has subsided, but I feel a little dragged out this morning. Several area school systems are on an altered schedule or closed today because of weather conditions. Oh, how I wish we were on a delay.....I really dread getting out in that cold breeze this morning!
Okay, enough whining.....time to get in the shower and prepare to face the day!
