I was told to go home yesterday afternoon. It took me about 20 minutes but I finally caved.
I went out at lunch and read on a bench in the shade. When I went to go back into the building, the signs were blurry. I kept walking up to the 5th fl. and back to my desk. Everyone's faces were blurry as if I were reading with no glasses on. Weird. So I grabbed some Advil right away. The pain came shortly after. So...got home around 5 and laid in bed for 1/2 hr. and my youngest came in to ask if he and his friend could "jam".....Ugh....I said sure. I put ear plugs on, rested more and then my oldest son came for band practice. I gave up, went downstairs and stayed on the couch the rest of the night.
I've never experienced the blurriness before. I've had the squiggles but not this. So this morning I left for work feeling pretty good. Got here and I have the pain back. My vision is clear though. I took some migraine meds and feel a little better but it's still in the back of my eyes. I have to be better for tomorrow. I'm off because my dh is having knee surgery. I hope I can read my book!!
I started The Highest Tide (forget the author right now). It's pretty good so far. Takes place in Puget Sound and it's all about the ocean, told by a 13 yr. old insomniac/braniac. Later!
