Take Care

This morning I woke up with a blinding headache and the room seem a little off center. When the alarm clock went off, is sounded as if it were amplified with some good quality rock and roll guitar speakers. The only thing that approaches a good headache in quality of pain and intensity, is a tooth ache. I've heard people say that and a good ear ache would be in the chase, but I've never had one quite that bad so I'll take the word of others. Suffice it to say, it got my attention early and remained front and center for much of the morning.
I took a couple of Advil's but I could almost hear the headache snort "you think that's gonna help?!!!" "To get rid of me you'll have to inject a vile of high quality morphine directly into your eye!!!!" It is quite fortunate that morphine is a controlled substance and unavailable to me because I would have made use of it.
The pain began to subside after breakfast and I was able to open my eyes long enough to send my boss an email. He told me to lay low, but once the magic of the coffee and breakfast took hold, the pain disappeared and I was able to work for most of the day.
I have probably said this in the past, but it's worth saying again - you don't appreciate what you have, until you no longer have it. Your health is one of your most precious assets. It's hard to appreciate your money, your home or your other assets when your health is gone.
Take care.
