I took some Advil or whatever I had one me keeping my fingers crossed it was no big deal.
Then I came home and took some Tylenol, sat on the couch, and wondered if I could get rid of that part of my head and still live a normal life.
Later, I took more of whatever I could grab because it still wasn’t helping. I took some allergy medicine, in case that was the issue – and washed it all down with a beer because sometimes if it is stress induced, it will relax me enough to let my body get rid of the headache.
Friday morning, I woke up to it.
So, I went the caffeine route – more pain medication – and lots of crossing my fingers that I could get through my day. I had lots of fun meetings. And during the middle of it, I saw this:
“Good friends are like stars…. You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there”
On my friend’s Facebook page.
I was just thinking how nice of a quote it was and wondering where he finds them when I got this text message on my phone:
“Good morning, my little star!”
from my friend on Facebook…the same one with the quote.
For the first time all day, I felt like smiling. The woman who sits next to me asked me why I was so happy all of a sudden as she knew I was not feeling the greatest. I told her I had gotten a nice text from a friend. “That’s so sweet” was her response.
To be honest, the headache never went away for the rest of the day. Hell, I’m still dealing with the fucking thing even as I type. Then I had to deal with shitty vendors at work who are fucking up my project. But, that warm feeling from that note and that smile that pops up when I think about it, well, it’s still there.
I love you, TL.
Thanks for being my star.
