I've had a headache since Wednesday. One of those pounding, eye watering headaches that not even the strongest of painkillers can touch and quite frankly it sucks!
And not just because I am in lots of pain and really shouldn't be on the laptop, but because it probably means something is wrong. I don't mean "OMG I am dying wrong", I mean in a I suffer with depression, insomnia and I'm a bit stressed type wrong.
I have suffered on and off with headaches for years a bit like my depression, coincidence? I am not sure if my depression brings on my headaches or my headaches bring on depression but when I have one the other is not far behind.
I have had scans in the past to make sure there is nothing sinister about my headaches and they didn't find anything, the consultant just told me I am just a person that suffers with headaches, what a great help that was!
So now I have this headache and it won't go away and I can't work because it hurts to be on the computer more than 15 minutes at a time. I can't sleep because I am stressed because now I have even more work to do and its piling up and I am sure the lack of sleep is making my headache worse!!! arrrrrghhhhhhhhh
I am now trapped in this sleepless, painful, stressful circle and I am not quite sure how to break out of it.
I need help, or advice or sleep, or all three!
