Full-blown migraine with aura. That was my diagnosis today; plus floaters, beginning cataracts and blepharitis. So sayeth the ophthalmologist. When I described my symptoms, he said it was "classic migraine." The good news is I don't need new lenses. The fact that I really want new frames is beside the point. :-/
As far as I know, that was my first migraine. I've had the auras before, but I don't remember having the headache after. Of course, I might just not have associated the two at the time. I can't believe I drove 210 miles with a migraine and I sure hope I never have another one.
There is something beautiful about all scars of whatever nature. A scar means the hurt is over, the wound is closed and healed, done with.
Harry Crews, novelist and playwright (b. 1935)
Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.
George Sand [pen name of Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin], novelist (1804-1876)
