The pain lets me know I'm alive. Yay, I think.

I'm dubious about my head today. Sunday was mostly headache free, with but the occasional pain spike which I threw nurophen at with a vengance. Today, though, I'm concerned. Not a whole lot of sleep last night, combined with that ominous pressure at the temples, behind my eyes, and at the base of my skull. It doesn't hurt yet, but it feels like its warming up to it.

And, you know, I'm not saying that it is the usual migrane you hear about. The "you must only whisper in my darkened presence, lest the pain of my head consume the world" kind of migrane is far, far removed from the dull, creeping ache I seem to have. But I'm beginning to understand how awful it must be for people with chronic pain.

I'm distressed at the possibility of having to go without caffiene, which I may have to if I start getting migranes a whole lot. Last time I tried to do that, I went through awful, awful withdrawl symptoms. Caffiene is the only drug I imbibe at a constant level (unlike the occasional drink of alcomahol), and I'd like to think that I do the addicted thing properly. No getting distracted from my beloved caffiene by any other silly chemicals.

As an aside, one of my supervisors just came in to check on me and my aching head. He thinks I should go back to the doctor, and I think I agree with him. I'll wait and see how I go today... it may just be a lack of sleep thing. It may not. An optometrist may be the way to go as well. We'll see.

And! Jye has convinced me to use some of my mountain of DnD gamer-crack miniatures for the next DnD session. I'm going to need to get some building models if I'm going to do that, and as I recall I can download fold up paper buildings from the Wizards of the Coast website.

Mmmmm - folding and sticky-taping paper. My favourite.
