My head hurts

I haven't had a migraine in a while, and now I have one. My migraines go in an inverse proportion of pain vs. length. The really sharp stabbing pains come in waves that last only hours. The most common are some medium variety which last a few days or less that come in clusters. The worst ones are like the one I am having now: it barely hurts, but I know it will last for a week. It makes me sleepy, agitated, and sluggish. I fell asleep at like 9pm, after the first wave came. But then I woke up and I can't sleep.

Time to get some chocolate. Good, sweet, milk chocolate. I kind of suspected that I was going to have migraines because just before any attack, I get this intense craving for caffeine. My body knows what it needs. But then I got this bitter crap instead.

Boo, people who put bitter baker's chocolate in the milk chocolate box! And BOO me for not checking the wrapper.
