Bye Bye Sauv Blanc

I haven't had a migraine for 5 days. I also haven't had a drop of alcohol in 5 days. A connection?  I'd say so.

I do enjoy my glass (or two) of Sauvignon Blanc, especially on these wonderful summer evenings. Predictably, I will pay for the pleasure. I thank my lucky stars for imitrex which I take way too often to combat the headache that follows. I get 12 tablets a month and I buzz through them. When I hear about people who use them one or two times a year, I stand in awe. Ingesting so many of these vasoconstrictors can't be good. But. They. Work.

I feel better for not imbibing and love being headache free (5 days is a long time without a migrain; if I make it more than a week, a record will be broken) so will plan to stick with the no-alcohol-tonight plan for the meantime.

Cheers!  My Red Bull tastes so good instead.

  1. I would miss wine, too. I often enjoy a glass with dinner. I am wondering if coffee is making it harder for me to sleep at night ~ for decades it didn't but I think that may have changed. It's a balancing act, this pleasure vs health thing.
