Do You Have a Headache?

Or perhaps another little ache or pain that is just enough to be annoying but not bad enough for a visit with the doctor? Do you go to your regular medical stash and seek something to take the edge of so you can move forward with a wonderful day? Do you pick up a bottle of Advil, Tylenol, aspirin, ibuprofen, or the store brand of any of these?

Warning, warning, warning! That is what I did. In fact, I did it for three mornings in a row because of a sinus headache. Yet, for those three days, I slept and slept! “I must really be sick or fighting a bug.” I thought.

Finally, I looked carefully at the across the counter medication bottle I had just recently purchased for headaches and what I was taking each morning. I shopped carefully – reading labels, comparing ingredients and costs and put a bottle in the grocery basket. For the past three mornings, I had been taking the PM version of the medication! That is why I had slept so well for three days in addition to my usual good nights.

I urge you to be extra careful when purchasing and when taking any medications, or you may find yourself doing what I did. I was sleeping day and night, yet not really getting rid of that annoying headache.

    That is one way to get caught up on your sleep. Maybe lack of sleep was causing your headache. lol
