Headaches *and* insomnia

For some reason, I've been having a lot of headaches lately. I wake up with a headache about once a week or so.

I've had a few headache episodes over the last dozen years, where I would have an intense headache every day. They'd kick in around 9:00 and persist through anything I could think of to take for them. After about a month, they'd stop coming and would stay away for several years. These aren't those because they aren't every day and they're nearly so bad, but waking up headachy is annoying.

And over the years I've had random intermittent insomnia. I'll just wake up around 3:00 AM and be unable to get back to sleep for two or three hours. The new twist is that I now sometimes can't get to sleep to begin with. Last night I was bright and alert and chatty until around 2:00, which would have been fine if it hadn't been a school night.

So today I feel draggy and I have a headache. Whee.

You should get one of those new Japanese heads. Smaller, well built and they don't ache as much. Clever folks....

Hey, Leta.

Listen, I too have the occasional bout of sleeplessness. In any regard I'm always up 'til at least midnight. You ever want someone to talk to in the wee hours, give me a call. You have my number. We'll be off our peak cell phone hours!
