Mini Vacation

I'm on a mini vacation with my mom to visit family. It was a great idea and has taken my mind off my pending neuro appointment and pending review of short term leave. A good distraction and if I do return to work a good time to take a trip.. trips are easier when you can recover from them with no worries. Anyway it has been awesome.

Timing was a wee bit off though since I am right in the bad migraine spot. So on the drive up I ensured I was careful on treating my migraines.. I was not driving of course. My mom was, which was a long drive even though we broke it up into two days. Anyway, into a migraine storm as it were as well. Driving means motion and driving through mountains I suppose even more interesting... so aura wise it has been spectacularly intense. I noticed some swaying vertigo. As in when we stopped to eat I would still feel motion and would sway forward or to the side, and that has been off and on for days now. Or spinning sensations. Then in the center of my visual field I had a very intense flashing pulsing light that expanded for a good hour. And since that day the visual snow has been extremely bad. It can be with these status migraines anyway. And it might be that I simply am noticing it more. At my grandmothers where we are staying I do not smoke inside... so I go outside and at night I sit out there and stare at the sky...and all I see is this insane static. Everything is difficult to see and the motion of it is likely what is making me so dizzy and triggering that vertigo sensation. I look at the siding and that static over it warps it so bad my brain does not like the motion and I can get that swaying sensation or my visual field will tilt or my vision darkens. I know it is always worse at night which is why I never drive at night. But where I live there are more lights... which actually make it worse in some ways, but make the VS less obvious in others. But here it has been severe. Even inside with soft light it is bad,but then that is like home. So maybe it always is this bad when I have a status migraine. If so.. I worry about commuting to work in the winter. My vision is very compramised. But, I do wonder if the vertigo is directly linked to the visual snow. I mean it seems when the visual snow is worse at night I get more vertigo sensations... because it literally looks like there is a field of static over everything making everything look warpy and shifty and distorted.

I would love to just redirect you to the new site...

But sadly the redirect function doesn't function. I will continue to persist hitting it and see if it will eventually do something. Or s...
