gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth

location . on my ikea couch
temp . 57
humidity . 74%
conditions . it's going to rain all weekend

we may have made a major breakthrough with my headaches today. this morning, in the midst of an intense migrane with blurry vision, i decided that maybe it was time for an eye exam...
i took my lunch break to walk down to an eye clinic on 17th and F and had my first eye exam since... well, i don't think i've ever had an eye exam. i mean, except for those that you get for free while in elementary school (do they still do that?). about an hour later, with my pupils completely dialated, we decided that, yes virginia, trinity needs glasses. i've always (thought that i) had great vision, but apparently i'm near-sighted. while i can see exceptionally well at short distances, it looks as though my eyes have to work over-time up close, which causes them to spasm at distances, which could be contributing to my headaches. or not, since they mostly occur in the middle of the night and seem to have almost nothing to do with sight. a girl can dream, right? i'll keep (all three of) my readers updated on the situation.

i use to get lots of headaches when i sat in class or at work. the only thing that would stop them was a heavy dose excedrin or a few beers. i thought it was from poor vision. it turned out that i was an alcoholic.

chris: did the alcololism cause the headaches? or hangovers? or do you have headaches *and* you're an alcoholic? help me out here =)

and, to johnny bravo, thanks. i think. unless you were making fun of me. then no thanks. you're not welcome here.

i was having eye problems a couple of years ago... thought that i was going blind… it turns out that the face wash that i was using had caused bumps to raise up on the back of my eyelids, causing me to see halos around lights and blurry everything... and it caused major migraines... maybe you're allergic to something? since you said that they mostly occur during the night, maybe you’re allergic to sleep... that would be most amusing... and incredibly tragic.
