Feels like someone stabbed me in the side of the head.

Yay! I've done 5 days! It's been a rough day, but I'm still going at it. I weighed myself this morning - 204, so 7 pounds so far.
I spent about 5 hours drawing today and I think it strained my eyes or something because now I've got a massive headache. I did take some ibuprofin and that took the edge off. My head was hurting so bad that I felt nauseated. Now, in my normal life, that causes me to eat or drink beer, which makes me feel better. But what can I do? So I just went to bed and tried to be still. When I've fasted in the past, I took ibuprofin to get me over the worst part of the initial detox headaches. It's funny how this time I did not have that (in the first 4 days). Or maybe that is what I'm experiencing now??!! Don't know. I know a lot of people would not ever use medication on a fast, but I see no reason to be in terrible pain. If it helps you to get through it, why makes things harder for yourself? Anyway, it's all temporary.
Short post tonight - gonna go back to bed. Happy fasting!
