Headaches, Heartache, and Happenstance

It just so happens that I have woken up with another bummer of a headache this morning. I don't know why unless I am gritting my teeth in my sleep. I am going to have to talk with my dentist or GP about this issue because it is happening quite regularly. And I don't like headaches. I took two ES Tylenol and am thinking I am gonna have to take two more before it will subside.

As I mentioned early in the week, my youngest brother was told he had a heart attack and then told he did not. So ER doctor make up your mind. Don't tell someone they had a heart attack if they in fact did not, you might scare them into having one for real. I am so thankful that they are saying now that it does not look like he had one. It may be his gall bladder, it may be a stomach ulcer, it may be esophageal spasm, etc., but at this point in time, they don't think it was a heart attack.

Happenstance, I love that word. I wish I knew what it meant. I think it means whatever is going to happen is going to happen no matter what you try to do to change the situation. My whole life is happenstance. It comes at me with such force sometimes I feel blown away. Luckily, I have found that I am able to withstand the winds of change and happenstance. I feel fortunate to have made it to 51 years old and consider myself more wisened by time and circumstance (happenstance). What the heck does that mean, I am gonna have to go look the word up now. I hate it when I do that. I will be back and let you know the true definition of "happenstance" later.

I used to get headaches when I grind my teeth at night. I'm going to the dentist to get a hmmm... guess it's a mold or retainer or something of that nature that fits to the top teeth. Grinding the teeth isn't a good thing as it wears it down, but the mold thingie is supposed to prevent it.

Happenstance, like that word too. Thanks for the definition to go along with it.

I'm glad it wasn't a heart attack. Hope he is feeling a lot better now!
