Did I really say I was craving a salad? I suppose I was just craving something on the healthy side of things. And I needed that today more than any day recently.
I woke up with the world's worst headache and found myself dreaming about pain.
I was a newly turned vampire screaming about the pain of the sunlight when I woke up the first time. I had several dreams like that in the early hours of the day. I tried to imagine bright stings of white light being drawn out of my brain pulling the pain with it. It seemed to work for a bit. And then I would open my eyes and the pain was almost unbearable.
I slept until two. At that point the overwhelming hunger was starting to override the pain and I got up to eat.
I wondered if my headache was in anyway related to the volume of junk I had eaten yesterday. I couldn't rule anything out at this point, so Mike took me out for a healthy lunch at a Southwest grill. I had fish tacos with cabbage slaw. They tasted great, and might have even been moderately healthy too.
The headache never really went away, no matter what I tried. So I'm going to go to sleep early and hope my dreams are pain free tonight.
If not I may have to step things up and eat steamed veggies tomorrow. It couldn't hurt.
Until the next time...I'll (hopefully) be dreaming of something nice.
