The headache I had yesterday turned out to be a migraine. I don't know why I didn't think of that, after rehydrating the heck out of myself failed to make it go away. (Actually, I do know why I didn't think of that; I have a terrible time thinking straight about anything when I'm having a migraine.) Fortunately it was a mild migraine, as they go. I had a headache for somewhere around eight hours, but it wasn't bad enough to be incapacitating, and my vision never went weird.
I went to bed at 8:45 last night and by the time I woke up again at midnight, the headache was gone. I only woke up for long enough to appreciate that (absence of pain is an absolutely marvelous feeling) and turn the light off, and then went back to sleep until 3:45, at which point I woke up with just enough upset stomach to keep me awake, but not enough to force me to do anything about it. Eventually that got better, too, and I woke up for good at 7:30. I still have a cough, though.
Some day I'll remember that I just plain do not get headaches unless they're migraines, and stop trying to ignore my headache and hope it goes away, or think it's due to something else and try to remedy the something else. ( Possible TMI here )
In other news, I have the possibility of being called any time until Wednesday (including Labor Day) and sent to BU to be a "line monitor" for incoming freshmen standing in line to file enrollment papers. In short, I'd be making sure that everybody in line has the forms they need to have before they get to the head of the line and don't have the right forms. If I get called for this, I get to stand up from 8 AM to 6 PM. I don't think I have any shoes outside my Tevas that will let me do that, and I would have to dress nicely, so my Tevas are right out anyway. I rather hope I don't get called, but I said I would be a backup person in case one of the people who wanted to do it couldn't, so now I'm stuck with it.
If you had asked me yesterday, I would have said there's no possible way it could have been a nice day out today. I'm glad I was wrong.
