Subject Matter


Argh. I had a nice day of hanging out, playing old-school D&D, eating “pan Asian” and generally goofing off. Unfortunately, I’ve given myself a red wine headache. I was going to blog but I only want to crawl into bed and try to fall asleep so my head stops hurting.

I love red wine but [...]


I’m beginning to think that riding the bus is aggravating my TMJ, which is then triggering headaches. Again last night, after a fine and relaxing evening, I rode the bus home and after my bus ride started to feel a headache creeping up on me. By the time I went to bed, I definitely had [...]

Headache Day

I’ve been off and on useless today. Headaches, though not full-on nausea-inducing migraine headaches, thankfully. I fear I may be clenching my teeth in my sleep again and that I’m having TMJ related headaches. Probably time for me to go in and get checked out medically again either way. Bleh, I hate that.

Sure enough, all that travel on buses, trains, planes, and subways (not to mention hauling around in the pouring rain) left me feeling completely ill. Killer sore throat, pounding headache, the works. Slept for 10 hours last night, and don’t feel any better.

Of course I have tons of work to do. This is one [...]
