lizcommotion: four different colored panels of the MRI image of a brain (brain)

So apparently even though I'm not working a traditional 9-5 job or going to school, I still freak out about Mondays. It's as though years of habit of freaking out about homework and tests and presentations on Sunday night have ingrained themselves in my body.

I've noticed a marked likelihood that if I'm going to get a migraine, it will happen on a Monday when all my anxiety spikes about the things I'm "supposed" to be doing. (The Puritan work ethic runs strong in this one, even though she thinks it's bullshit and tries to fight it.) If I don't have a lot of things I'm "supposed" to be doing, then I just freak out about how I "should" be doing more and I'm such a [bad person]. So that adds all sorts of stress, making it a recipe for instant migraine.

I don't know if anyone else gets a "case of the Mondays", but I wonder if anyone has noticed particular times of the week/month/year are more likely to be stressful and trigger headaches? (For example, the Joyful Holiday Season.)
