I have tossed the term "blinding headache" around in the past to describe a bit of pain in the head. No more. This morning I experienced waves of pain that made it hard to see as each one crested and broke.
This is the second time in the past five years that I have had a headache that largely left me curled in a fetal ball and wishing I would die. It was gone by 2:00 or 3:00 in the afternoon, but I was just absolutely drained by the experience; it was a mighty effort to drive a mile or so to the grocery store and pick up some paper towels and dishwashing detergent, and by the time I got home I was completely drained.
Hopefully it'll be another five years before it happens again. We'll return to our regular blogging schedule in the AM.
