Ha ha, okay, so I'm in work, right? Right now, I mean, I'm telling you what's happening right now. I got here about a half an hour ago, and I'm talking to Bruce, and I can't really see right in front of my face, just sort of a little blind spot, I was pretty sure, but it's hard to identify blind spots because you can't see them, you know? Because you're blind right there. And it's juuuuuust off center so when you go to look at it it moves. Of course.

But I can still see the plan and the computer screen, so what the hey. Then I realize that it is indeed an aura. If you get migraines, you might know what an aura is: little flashy lights, in a line usually, in your field of vision. I get them as a precursor to migraines, but I don't get migraines often (knock wood). And a few times I've gotten an aura, but then real quick took some ibuprofen and went to sleep, and I didn't seem to get a migraine -- in the past I've thought that I just "beat it out," but man, I don't know if you can DO that to a migraine, so maybe I wasn't going to get one those days anyway. I don't know.

Anyway, I started writing this entry because my periperal vision was pretty much gone. After the aura started, I found someone who had some Excedrin and popped a couple, then came back upstairs and my peripheral vision went away, but now it's mostly back again, so I suppose that's a good thing.

I have a lot of work to do and Bruce is out of the office all day so it would be really nice to be able to stay at work. I hope this doesn't turn into a real migraine, with axe-through-the-head pain and the uncontrollable vomiting and whatnot. That would be a real bummer.

P.S. It occurs to me that I ate ~1.5 lbs of strawberries last night, and I know that strawberries are a trigger food for SOME people, for migraines, and if God has made me one of those people then I will hate him and smack him in the face next time I see him so that'd better not be it YOU HEAR ME, GOD?? I like strawberries.
