Lesson One. Do not go to bed with the beginnings of a headache.
For at least two hours I drifted between sleeping and waking, while all the time the headache got worse. Every tiny fragment of sleep contained a dream in which the headache was explained by ever more disturbing things, until at nearly 5am my head was too painful and I was to creeped out to try to sleep anymore.
At times like that, paracetamol is my friend. In the end, I finally made it to sleep, and now I’ve woken up refreshed and normal. But I don’t remember the dreams anymore…
