Got Coffee?

Headache Express-O

Every morning for the past three days, I've woken up with a small headache. Per doctor's orders, I've taken headache meds and the pain has gone away.

Well this morning I woke up with a big headache. I took my meds, but it didn't go away. I was sick enough not to want coffee, so I went back to bed with a hot pack. I woke up a few hours later. My headache was much worse and I still didn't want coffee. I took a nasal Imitrex, reheated the hotpack and went back to bed. I woke up a few hors after that, still feeling awful. By then I could feel the lack of coffee, and I was wondering if it was contributing to my headache. So I visualized myself going to a nearby cafe, Kneaded Pleasures, where they make great expresso and sell good ice cream that they will happily add to the expresso. I finally dragged myself up, took another round of meds and hustled G off to the cafe. When we got there, G gave me a wonderful back rub while I waited for my drink. When my coffee and ice cream came it tasted amazingly wonderful. And, about a half an hour later, I was fine.

Let's hear it for headache meds, expresso and ice cream!
