The Rain Woke Me Up This Morning

The other night I had a small glass of wine, which I did not even finish, which gave me a headache.  It was Greek Easter.  And we were at the brother and sister in-laws.  Now sometimes I can drink a little bit of wine and be fine.  But most of the time, I get a bad headache when I drink wine, so I avoid it. 

I want to be normal, but I cannot be normal.  I am different.

When I got home, I took 2 Excedrin Migraine.  Each pill has 500 mgs of aspirin and Tylenol — (can’t spell the other name right now).  Plus caffeine.  But I don’t know how much.  Well I know they’ve used caffeine to help migraines for years.  However, it felt like I had drunk at least 4 cups of coffee.

I was up all night.

My migraine was gone, but I was up.  Which I didn’t mind.  It was kind of fun.  Watching movies, sitting on the balcony for some fresh air —

So my sleep is all screwed up.

Yesterday, I fell asleep in the afternoon, and when I awoke, I didn’t know what day it was. 

That kind of sleep —

It totally sucks.


Last night I was in for a good night’s sleep.  After not sleeping the night before.  I appeared to be doing just that, woke up once, went back to sleep, and then was woken up by the rain. 8 am this morning.  I think that should be an optional sound on our alarm devices — rain. 

The gentle way to wake up.
