Migraine Awareness Month #18: “The Price Is Right.” What one thing would you do for the Migraine community if money were no issue.
i don’t know what kind of elixir they had in that drip, but when i was in hospital getting my frown muscles filleted out i was told on no account was i to tolerate even a second of the beginning of a migraine that day. i don’t think it was mere kindness that they were about, it seems much more likely that after getting in behind my eyes with a scalpel it might be a bit challenging to the sewing, and maybe a bit extra painful for the patient, i don’t know, to have a full on migraineathon right after surgery. being me, naturally, within a couple of hours i was having the warning signs of impending migraine, so i told a nurse and quickety quick they brought a bag of SOMETHING MAGICAL in a drip and plugged me in. i still had a stent in my arm from the surgery, and all they had to do was hook it up. my god, but it saw off that migraine! i was so impressed.
i don’t even know if it was some sort of liquid triptan, but you know the horridness as the triptan comes on? also the wait? none of it. neither. just switched the migraine off…
money no object? well, i’d have that ready and waiting for me all the time everywhere, and in an ideal world, whether you like the sound of it or not, i’d certainly share the magic with you.

i’m off to the opticians today. i know! swimming on friday and now the opticians today! it’s almost like i am a real person! i’ve had a little look on their website and i quite like the look of these specs.
no idea if they will suit me, but i certainly like them as an object. funny thing about opticians, though. i never quite understand how they can have a shop full of frames and still try and tell you which ones you should have. i get that the lenses are their thing, but really, i want to choose how i look all day.
thing is, that i will have to be careful not to be railroaded into anything. i am never quite top form, and after an eye examination i doubt i will really be up to arguing the toss with them about what i do and don’t want to pay for. bad enough that i will have to bear in mind that i want quite big lenses and not too heavy frames. but i know there will be lots of other STUFF they want me to choose between. i have had bifocals this time round, and want the varifocals, but i don’t want to have to choose between different kinds of varifocals.
oh yeah, my face is lopsided as well, so glasses usually just annoy me constantly or else the optician has to do some sort of bendy magic, and i don’t know if all specs can be manipulated THUSLY.
so now you are all excited and nervous with me? good, good.
i’m not really big on ornaments, as such, but i saw these little sculptures on tumblr this morning and i thought ooh! likey!
