For some strange reason I have had a headache for almost a full week now. I think it may have something to do with allergies which are really bad right now. Anyway, it is not only my head now but my eyes and my ears and the constant chatter in the house that usually makes me smile has turned into piercing blades of noise that every nerve ending reacts to. I am looking forward to the solitude of night time and sleep and hope that when I wake up it will be gone. I have new found empathy for those in constant pain.
