Math and Migraines: A Strong Correlation

Migraines really suck. I started getting one shortly after I ate lunch and it got progressively worse. And I'm a big dummy and can never remember to bring medicine with me. So I came home, took some Excedrin. And nothing happened. Needless to say, I did not run today. I slept instead. I feel kind of like a failure. Two days in a row of not running is no bueno. Gonna shoot for another 5am run tomorrow. I'm hoping that since the one on Tuesday was so successful, that will be enough motivation to get out of bed early tomorrow morning. I just have too many things to do after work before I drive up to Stl for the weekend. Things like getting gas and packing and more lame stuff. 

Also, thanks to this stupid migraine, I have felt nauseous all afternoon/evening. I don't know if this ever happens to anyone else, but now I'm at the point where I'm starting to get hungry, but I'm still feeling nauseous, so I'm not sure if I should eat or not. And all that food I have that requires a lot of cooking? No way am I gonna even bother trying to make that. Too tired.

I'm blaming this migraine on the ridiculous amount of math I have had to do all day (and more tomorrow). My brain is fried. I can't do anything the rest of the day that requires too much thinking. Math sucks. Aside from getting my Bachelor's in English because I love reading and writing, I got it because I suck at math. I hate math. People who enjoy math are weirdos. Seriously, if I never saw another number again in my life, I would be happy. My brain just wants to shut down when I have to do things like pay bills or balance my check book (I don't think anyone actually does that anymore...online banking does it for you). I can't even run on a track because I always lose count of how many laps I've done. And we all now how great I am at keeping track of my time when I go for a run. If I do manage to "keep track" I do it by what time I left the house and what time I got back, which is highly inaccurate almost always. 

I'm going to spend the rest of my evening trying to decide whether I'm actually hungry or not and picking something to eat that I'm least likely to throw up later. And then probably go back to bed. You burn calories in your sleep right? ...Right?
