When I said on Friday that I was "sort of" going to Ethiopia yesterday, all I meant was I was going to go to the Ethiopian neighborhood of DC because Natalie says their food is amazing. But that ended up not happening.
That ended up not happening because I woke up with a migraine. And today would be the 9th consecutive day that I've had a headache. And I had 5 in the week and a half before that. Either I've stopped responding to my migraine med (which I am known to do), or the new seizure med they put me on after the pancreatitis is causing it. I'm calling my neurologist tomorrow for an appointment as soon as I get back from DC.
This is going to be a busy week. On top of work and my new class (Theories of Constitutional Interpretation), I have a visit to the State Department on Tuesday (where I hope to be working one day), a visit to Capitol Hill on Wednesday (this time, with the program), and a small group meeting with a Representative on Friday. I need strength and stamina now more than ever.
I am so tired. And nothing of any importance happened today, so this is what you get. I'm going to bed. It's the one escape from this pain.
