Heat, headaches, and sickness

I woke up this morning in a sweat—it was 80°F in the house, and my body was much hotter. I had a slight fever, more-than-slight nausea, a terrible headache, and for a brief period after waking up, tunnel vision.

My stomach is feeling better—thanks to Sabrina, who went out early this morning (on her birthday!) to get me some Sprite. My body temperature also seems to be back to normal.

I’ve been getting excruciating headaches for the past two or three days, and this morning’s heat wasn’t helped by my pounding cranium. Ibuprofen has been keeping the pain at bay, thankfully.

Most of my symptoms from this morning (headache, tunnel vision, light sensitivity, nausea) point to a migraine, and I’ve experienced similar episodes in the past, so that’s a possibility.

I just hope this doesn’t become a regular thing.

We’re going out for Sabrina’s birthday this evening, so I need to keep myself functioning.

Hello, allergies

Allergy season is upon us. 'Tis the season for red, itchy eyes and relentless sneezing and sniffling.

Yesterday was really bad. Today was bearable. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
