This is not a surprise, it's something I've known for years. She proved it again last night when I called her and began the phone call asking if her whine quota had been filled for the day, or if I could whine about my head about to split in two. She told me some things to try, suggested it might be a caffeine thing. I told her that someone had mentioned that, but I really hadn't been drinking any caffeine in the past few weeks, so I didn't think that could be it. She told me that it doesn't take much sometimes, and to drive thru somewhere and get an iced tea on my way home. And then the lights went off in my head. Iced tea. Of course. I felt SO stupid. Because Sunday morning as we prepared to build the patio, my mom brewed some iced tea for us. She and I LOVE our iced tea. It is also pretty much all I drank ALL DAY Sunday. Throw in the chai frappuccinos she bought us as a special treat that morning, and I consumed a LOT of caffeine. This week? I've had next to nothing. Tuesday I had the green caffeine boost in my Jamba Juice, and my head didn't hurt much at all. Which is a much better explanation than the exercise correlation I was spouting off yesterday.
I am already drinking some iced tea this morning, and so far I'm doing just fine. My mommy is very smart and I knew that she'd tell me what to do to make it all better. :) Yay for no headaches! They are not fun, I do NOT recommend them. I hope you all have a lovely, headache-free Thursday!
