Taking A Short Break


Hi everyone. As some of you are aware I will be taking a break for a bit.

On Tuesday I had a 'surprise visitor' return after four years.....

the 'silent migraine'.

It is called 'silent' in that it sneaks upon you causing visual disturbances
instead of the more well-known ones that produce headaches.

They are very physically disruptive as well and can cause confusion.

Saw a doctor last night and he said they can come and go....with years in between.

Hoping they aren't staying long.

  1. I used to have the migraines with visual problems, such as jagged lines I could see from the corners of my eyes. The good news is that I haven't had one in quite a few years. I hope yours get lost very quickly.

    Love,
    Janie

  19. Oh, Jim, I hope you're feeling better now. I've been a life-long migraine sufferer, so I literally "feel your pain."

    I haven't been around lately in the Blogosphere, so I'm just getting caught up around here. LOVE the new header (as always!) I didn't realize how much I missed you until I stopped in today. =)

  22. Hey everyone! Thanks so much for the good wishes. I am feeling almost 'back to normal'....whatever that means.
    This was a real surprise as I said but with a small increase to my heart medication, it is hoped the migraine will not return any time soon.
    I will 'see' you all starting Monday. Again thanks, always good to hear from you guys.
    Jim
