Headachey Thursday

12,486 Days Alive

I can’t seem to shake this headache. I’ve had it since yesterday afternoon.


I know it’s not from lack of caffeine or water. If I got any more hydrated, my kidneys would float! I think I’ll try taking more ibuprofen when I go to bed, see if that helps.

In better news, my diabetes is officially under control with meds and the dietary changes I’ve made! My A1C, which was a 10.3 in April, is down to a 6.8! I still have to take my meds and watch what I eat, but now I know I can effect positive change on my life. It’s not yet more lost weight, but it’s a damn good start.

I’m going to go practice on Duolingo and maybe read some? I’ve been wanting to catch up on my #200Book Challenge.

Take your meds, folks!

Do I have far too much time spent not sleeping in the wee hours? (I’ve been awake almost 24 hours now)

Do I chill in the bathtub and read by the light of the shower light when I can’t sleep? (I don’t want to wake my Darling Wife)

If you guessed “yes” to any of these, you’re right!
