Long day today. My own fault I suppose. I went to work without taking my meds with me. Mistake. I had been feeling particularly bad in the mornings. I figured either the meds were wearing off in the night - which is logical, or something about sleeping (tossing and turning or stretching or being dehydrated) was making my throat more sore than usual. Last night I woke up at 4am or so to take a pill and still had pain when I woke up, which kinda reinforced my theory.
Nope. It's because the meds wear off in the night. I went without taking meds while I was working and by the time I got home it felt like someone had a dagger in my neck and was dragging it up to cut my ear off. Nothing like a pickaxe in your head to put you in a bad mood.
