Drunky McDrunkerson Decisions [Sep. 20th, 2008|06:27 am]
[Current Mood |so hungover]

Update: Kushiel's Dart is awesome! Dark, kinky, crazy fantasy. I can't suggest this series at work, way over the top.

I drank THREE glasses of red wine last night? WHY? I was drunk already off of the 1.5, so why in a drunken stupor does a person decide to grant themself a huge hangover? I'm not big enough to need multiple giant glasses of wine anymore. 2 teeny glasses over the course of a long evening is perfect for celebrating. 3 in less than 2 hours? Very NOT perfect for celebrating, anniversary or no.

Woke up at 5am with the worst freaking pounding headache from hell. I am nursing a cup of tea, have taken in 3 glasses of water and extra vitamins with 2 tylenol and now my head hates me slightly less. What happens when I plan and pay for a nice weekend at the beach? After 2 weeks of beautiful weather, we wake up to RAIN. Thanks. To top that off, we are both congested. Some HOT anniversary trip this will be.

On the plus side, we have a fireplace in the room and there is an indoor pool and spa at the place we are staying, and we have a book on CD to share.

Ok, more tea, and some ginger. Any other hangover advice? Breakfast suggestions perhaps?

Well, I'm afriad the only hangover advice I have won't be too useful for today but for future reference, my husband says what works best for him is to take some pain killers with a glass of water right before he goes to bed. I don't drink anymore so I cant attest to how well this works myself, but that's how he deals with it anyway. And he says the hangover is always less when he remembers to hydrate and take some painkillers pre-emptively.

Feel better soon!

I don't drink terribly often anymore. I really enjoy red wines and have been able to occasionally have a glass still after dinner with Craig, but I think I lost my mind or something last night. I feel just awful, and the fact I did this to myself is little comfort. The tea and painkiller and water did help, but my stomach sounds like there is an alien in it. Eating anything may not be a good idea.

I did drink one glass of water before bed last night, but I don't think it was enough to offset the huge amount of wine I decided to put into this teeny body.

I think the whole "hair of the dog" is a bad idea that only works with people who drink so much they are having alcohol withdrawl and not a true hangover.

Time to get some fluids, carbs and protein into you.
The tea is good but likely a diaretic. See if you can get some juice/water into you. Move onto toast. If you can handle eggs/meat go for it.

I did herbal tea. Feeling a bit better now, thankfully, but still no progress with the food. I do feel like I may give birth to an alien baby.
