I'm Just too tired tonight to write

I am just too tired today to write. I've been battling a headache for 2 months, and after an ER visit yesterday and getting an IV pain killer, I had the highest of hopes that the headaches would be ending. But I woke up today with another one. And I went to the trenches of my kindergarten classroom ALL day. I seriously don't know how I did it. All I know is that I have a great teaching assistant, a wonderful parent helper who came in today, and an ESL teacher who was pushing in today for about an hour. Everyone told me I should go home. But my thinking is, I seriously could call in sick every single day, since these started in January.

Now, I'm going to bed. I just can't think of anything but headaches, and that's what I seem to be writing all month with my Slice of Life. It's all I think about. Will I have a headache tomorrow? Will I ever be better? Will the topomax kick in? Do I have Lyme Disease (test was taken yesterday)?

I hate this. This hopelessness that I feel.


  1. Oh, I do hope you find relief when you wake in the morning.

  2. Headaches are one of the worst things. I use to get migraines when I was younger. Hope sooner than later, something works for you. In the meantime, you're the best for keeping up with SOLS.

  3. Your dedication to writing is clear with this slice. Even with the pain you wrote. I admire your tenacity.

  4. I can't imagine having a headache for this long. I hope that you soon get some relief, and am glad that you are writing anyway.
