Mal à la tête

Today, part way though a rather tedious work-related “retreat” (who the heck retreats to a casino, anyway?), I got a massive throbber of a headache. I think this is now the sixth or seventh day in a row that I’ve gotten a headache - this one, however, packed more of a punch, and also was the first one I had gotten that wasn’t while I was in front of the computer.

So I have to wonder if this was caused by eyestrain, as I usually get headaches after sitting in front of the computer for a while. Still, it could be my glasses as I’m sure my perscription is out. Either way, I’m going to miss the first half of the continuation of the “retreat” (I can’t say that word in this context without rabbit-earring it - how silly) to visit the local, fairly competent walk-in doctor.

With all of the concern over west nile virus (not that I think I have it), and just the basic nastiness that can accompany headaches, I think it’s better to err on the side of caution. I’m 99.999% positive it’s merely a severe case of eyestrain, though, as I never get the headaches in the evening; just during the day.

Still, you don’t come here to listen to me complain about my health, do you? I vow more amusing, ailment-free posts are just over the horizon… I’ll let you know what the doctor says.
