I woke up this morning with a sore throat and a hint of a headache. I can't be sick, though. I can't afford to be sick. Not in this month.
Not next month, either, though.
I took an ibuprofen and had americano at a cafe where I went to work for a while. I felt better. I got the work done. Even the sore throat went away.
Then I went to lunch and had some coffee afterwards and the coffee triggered the headache again. This time ibuprofen didn't do much. Nor did neck stretches.
So now, I'm stuck. I'd like to work some more. But I can't have coffee (because it might worsen the headache) nor more ibuprofen (since it stopped working). It might help to eat, though. My plan is to get home from the office a little early, put a roast in the oven, and while that cooks, have some bacon and eggs and see what happens.
If the headache doesn't subside with food, I guess I'll call it a night and just read or watch a movie until the roast is ready.
There are days when the best course of action is to refrain from taking too much action.
This might be one of those days.
And it's alright.
