My Head Hurts


I just want to publicly announce that my head hurts. My head has been hurting for a week now. I can't sleep. I lay in bed with my hands on my head to protect it from the evil that is lying next to me. How can I sleep when I know that the minute I do there is a chance that I may not wake up?

How did this anxiety start? How did I get so paranoid?

When my husband tried to kill me in his sleep. I got an elbow to the head last week. Right in the soft spot. I woke up and thought my head had exploded and I immediately grabbed the top of my head to keep my brains from spilling out onto my pillow and screamed:

"OWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW! WHY? WHY? WHY? WHY?"

My husband, experiencing his own excruciating pain in his elbow, realized that my head must be feeling 10 times worse so he started apologizing and rubbing my head in attempt to fix any damage that he may have caused.

Of course this just made it worse because I thought he was trying to finish the job, if you know what I mean. But being in the half awake stupor that I was in, all I could do was yell why, why, why?!

Hubster finally managed to get a hold of me and kiss me better and he said I just fell right back to sleep like nothing had happened, I think that is when he drugged me.

Because my head still hurts. And I still can't sleep.

OK, I could do about five pages on the difficulty with sleeping in the same bed as my husband. I think you need to wear a bike helmet to bed now. Cause that's sooooo sexy. :)

We really should continue in the tradition of our forefathers and sleep in twin beds on opposite sides of the room. What's all this hoopla about sharing. Sharing is for pre-schoolers.

What on earth was he dreaming about? Or does he normally just wildly flail his arms around when he sleeps?!

I would definitely sleep with one eye open if I were you or he might take that out with another "Jimmy Arm". LOL!

I dont mean to laugh - but I feel your pain - my husband will hit me MANY times while he's asleep. I always tell him I know he's doing it on purpose & he's not really asleep - he's taking out his frustrations on me.... My advice - you got an elbow too... hehe!!!

Aw! That sucks!!!
I'm a chronic headache type of person. What's really helped me is taking 'baby' aspirin (an 81 mg dose of aspirin) per day plus regular acupuncture.

I agree with dani. Twin beds. Push them together when ya need 'em, pull 'em apart so you can get some zzzzzzzzz's.

I say pay back. Wait until he is asleep and WHAM! Right in the kisser.

Oh I totally feel your pain. But my husband doesn't use his elbows, just his gangly feet! Yikes!!!

I'm older than you (OK. A LOT older than you) so I see the BIG PICTURE. He knew he was bopping you in the head, and used that in order to go to stage (2) complain about elbow and get some sympathy. When that didn't work, he proceeded to stage (3) Pretend to care. Kiss her....and just maybe......get lucky.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Yep. You married a man. What'd ya expect?
