August Happiness Challenge -- Day 23

Today's Happiness: waking up. It sounds like a little thing, but it's not. Wednesday night/pre-dawn Thursday was tough. A tenacious headache would not release me and made sleep fitful. I took ibuprofen and when it didn't work, I turned to my prescription strength Naproxen. That not only didn't work either, it upset my stomach. It was around 5:00 AM when I finally felt -- if not well -- bone weary enough to sleep. I called the office and left a voicemail, telling them not to expect me in. Then I succumbed to slumber. After just three hours of restful, uninterrupted sleep, I awoke gently, on my own at about 8:00 and was thrilled to realize I was no longer in pain. It was a delightful moment.

  1. Waking up with a headache is the worst--it's so disorienting!
