i have a headache...

i haven't been feeling too good lately. Since last week, my body has been aching...como dice mi mama "me duelen los huesos y la carne"....and i i have been sleeping waaaay too much. My head is hurting like there is no tomorrow. I don't think it's the flu, i've just been really fatigued. i was sooo close in calling in sick this morning but i have clients scheduled for this afternoon. I really just want to go back to bed and snuggle up with kachis. Last night i was watching a movie...la tarea, una pelicula mexicana...and i fell asleep within the first 20 minutes. i just couldn't keep eyes open and it was only 8:00!!! I never ever fall asleep at that early!!! Anyway, at around 11:00 i woke up to my phone ringing. It was Mr. K. he asked what i was doing and told him that i had actually fell asleep while watching t.v. He apologized for waking me up and told to go to bed so that i be more comfortable..."okedokee" was my response. I went to bed but i couldn't go back to sleep!!!! i HATE it when that happens. i was really tired and sleepy but i couldn't fall asleep. I got up watched t.v. for an hour and then went back to bed. I still couldn't fall asleep!! and it was already 2 in the morning!!! i don't know what time i finally fell asleep pero senti como que apenas cerre los ojos cuando my alarm went off!!! oh i so did not want to get up!!! i have a doctors appointment tomorrow so that's a good thing i guess. i hope there is nothing wrong with me. My doctor is on the southside...waaaay south, okay so not so waaay south but hello? i do live waaay north and i don't have a car, anywho...so i'm taking the day off. i've thought about switching doctors to someone closer to me but i love my doctor!! she is soooo great!!i've had her since like forever and she is a latina!!! i feel so comfortable with her. I've heard horror stories about doctors AND i also work with them so i've seen them in action and well i just feel lucky to have Dr. B as my doctor. Anywho, i hope my headache goes away soon cause i still have like 4 more hours to go.

I hope you feel better. Have you tried melatonin to help you sleep? Its an herbal supplement you can buy almost anywhere. I started taking it about a month ago, and its fantastic. It takes about 15 minutes to take effect, and I sleep pretty soundly for about 7-8 hrs. I don't even notice when my *%) cat jumps on my bed and falls asleep with his face about 5 inches from mine.

BTW, I've started my blog xicagotlan.blogspot.com. It's bare, but its a start. You and chancla, and Mariposa, and a bunch of others have inspired me to get on it. Thanks.

Take some flor de tila or manzanilla té. Hope you feel better. Tapate bien! It's been so cold out there. I think you, Santis and I have insomnia. I've been going to sleep at 3am. If you are looking to switch Dr.s try Dr.Vodka at the medical center on the south side.

taking a shower always signals my brain that it's bedtime.
