I haven't tried to log in since the day it kept logging me out whenever I hit post. Notsomuch because I was fed up as that I wasn't doing particularly well. The migraine to end all migraines hit me. It was so bad I was having aural hallucinations. I mean, I see auras all the time, it's part of my synesthesia, but they are tiny. Like 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch and usually only on living things. Not only was I seeing them on everything, they were 8 inches on objects and some of them weren't attached to anything, but were floating in big sweeps of color.
I also lost my ability to make words come out right, which has never happened before, but is a symptom of severe aural migraines. That came back slowly over the next hour after I took my migraine medicine. I did call the online emergency doctor's thing set up for our health insurance when I could talk again and talked to them. I wanted to make sure it was a migraine and not a mini-stroke, though I was pretty sure it was migraine. I still took an asprin when I took my migraine meds just in case.
My body was pulling to the left when I was walking, which is a sign of stroke, but my migraine was mostly centered on the right side of my head and the right side of the brain does control the left side of the body. That was gone a few hours later and I didn't have any drooping. Based on my symtpoms and the aural hallucinations, they reassured me it was likely just a really bad migraine, but if I started drooping to go to the hospital immediately.
I am still extremely sensitive to light so I am wearing my sunglasses in the house during the day and at night when I use my computer. Still have a headache, but it is down to a normal level headache where I can function. I didn't sleep for 24 hours, but then was able to sleep 12 hours straight and that helped a lot. I've been sleeping more than usual as I recover. I quit seeing things after the first day, so that was good.
I've never had one so severe. I have had aural hallucinations with a migraine before, but they are much smaller blobs of floating colors with trails, not these huge things. It was really weird and scary.
Obviously I didn't do anything financial over the last several days, but DH did by a new set of toilet guts for the toilet tank. A part broke and the others showed a lot of wear and tear. They haven't been replaced since 1985, so we decided to get a full set instead of just replace the broken pieces and the flapper. It cost $20.98. And it is so much nicer. We don't have to hold down the flusher handle through the whole flush anymore. Something was preventing us from tightening it up before, because if we did it made the toilet run constantly. Now it is a dream to flush.
