Sadly -- I forgot to plan the actual post.
Story of my life. I'm great on the grand plans, but the details? not so much.
Anyway, I just started writing THIS post instead, only to discover I have a migraine aura looming. If you have never had one of these, I get the classic 'diamond-back python' which looks like this:
< image from www.34-menopause-symptoms.com >
The colours flash and the black zig-zaggy lines flash and I'm blind in the entire area that the snake takes up. Makes for an interesting life if I happen to be trying to see at the time.
You know how in the movies, blindness is depicted as blackness? Well, being REALLY blind isn't like that (at least in my experience) It's just -- not being able to see.
And thus, not being able to DO much until it passes.
It's definitely weird and a little disconcerting -- BUT I am so incredibly grateful to have the auras and not the actual migraines!
BTW -- altho the image is from a menopause symptoms site, this is not a menopausal thing. Sadly. I wish it were. But that is a post for another day.
