Headaches and heartaches

Yesterday morning was the beginning of the headache. Oh the headache, i could feel my heartbeat throbbing in my brain. I drank water, oh did i drink water. 2, 3, 5, 6 spaghetti sauce jars worth of water. I was stuck on my brothers couch afraid that movement would cause pain, more pain. Finally, i knew that if i didn't catch the bus - i was going to be spending the night at Morgan's. So i walk the 1/2 mile to the bus stop. Cool Air. Pulsing Head. "Hold it Together" i thought. Cold Air. Stars. Orion. Don't clench you're teeth! I get on the bus. a boy gets on and asks when the bus is leaving "5 minutes" says Mr. Bus Driver. Boy gets out of bus, lights a cigarette. Gross. I day dream about days when i don't have headaches, and i don't drink so much water that my bladder threatens to explode HOURLY. He gets back on the bus. I breath in, remnants of cigarette smoke waft back to wear i am sitting! The only way this could be worse is if he was wearing cologne!

I go to bed, hoping that when i wake up my head will cease to wage war. I wake up at 6:45 - lying in bed, wishing i had some water because dear lord my head. My phone rings, I have to go back to the hospital to give a urine sample for my Visa which needs to be sent yesterday.
