is there a front moving in?
Because I have an awful, sick-making headache. I feel hung-over, and I haven't had a drink in weeks. I haven't even had any remotely significant amounts of sugar in a week. Carbs, yes, because I loves me bread, but no candy, no sugary desserts. I've been known to get these pressure headaches when the barometric pressure is changing -- I should buy a barometer so I know what's going on. I've taken some ibuprofen, but it's just not going away, and I'm bummed because I want to run today. It's just that when I have this awful feeling of pressure behind my eyes, the last thing I want is to raise my blood pressure.

Bleah. This sucks.

You do know that carbs turn into glucose in your blood, right?

yes. But foods with a high sugar content like candy or worse yet, sugared soda, make me feel hung-over. Foods like bread, especially homemade whole wheat bread, like I've been eating, do not.

Yea, but if you're bread and carb intake has ramped up, your blood sugar may be spiking. Do you have a glucometer so you can check?

I never said it spiked.

I'm sorry. You're trying to help, and I'm being a bitch. I apologize.

Also, not stupid, thank you very much.

Snow is scheduled for Friday down here. It's not supposed to be much. 2-3" in this neck of the woods south of you.

There was supposed to be a light dusting last night, but it never happened.... Odds are I will feel it soon too. My left knee tends to hurt (bad knees) when the pressure changes rapidly.

well, at least it's not just me getting sick, because you know that'd just be what I needed with the brigade commander coming to drill this weekend.

I had the exact same problem today. I wanted to run but I had a headache right behind my eyes. Maybe it is the weather.

That's what I'm going with. :-) I feel a lot better after some food and ibuprofen, but it just got to be too late. peacockduchess called off the get-together tomorrow, so I won't be rushed to do my workout and ooh! I can color my hair tomorrow! Woot! See? Always a silver lining.
