    I liked the quote in the article "petting the cat".

    In my work environment, they are looking for any excuse.

    We're not even allowed to have a beer at lunch!

    You're not fucking wrong, cobber!

    BTW played rugby on the weekend and got the vision thing again, but pushed through and it went away, with no ill effects after it. Weird.

    You need Doppler Ultrasound on the neck (carotids).

    I thought Klittra was one of Godzilla's adversaries.

    Sunday morning, woke up and was on the PC when the vision issue in the right eye struck again. Decided to get the medical guys to have a word.

    Went back and saw the doc to get the official report. No lesions, occlusions, etc. as the radiographer said. Asked about the carotid theory and the doc said "nup". Gave me a script for migraine meds (largely pointless historically, but this is a new one so I'll give it a go at some point).

    Decided to go to the optometrist and get my peepers checked. Vision is 100%, no real problems. Got a birthmark on my eyeball according to the $60 scan. Weird.

    Optometrist said I'm probably getting ocular migraines - kind of like the migraine but without the pain.

    Went for a walk at lunch time around the building, which is about 1km and was pleasantly mild, and as soon as I sat back down at my desk, there the bastard was again! Floating vision distortion in the right eye.

    So with that in mind, I've determined the bets course is start exercising again in order to reduce my stress levels, increase endorphins, and lose a bit of weight. Hopefully, as per two years ago when I was at my peak, this will reduce the incidence of any migraine to practically zero.

    Don't think it'll be back on the bike straight away - somewhat dangerous with the whole "getting blindsided by a truck" thing but we'll start with walking and take it from there.

    OK I'm done with off-topic.

    Phitzy I suffered with a similar migraine for years. Floaty thingme's in my vision. I had some pain as well though. In the end I was getting them 1-2 times a fortnight. I could never find the trigger until my heart specialist convinced me to give up caffeine. As a side effect I have had one migraine in the last two years. And if I remember correctly their were no vision problems with it.
    Giving up caffeine has improved my life immeasurable.

    I reckon if I could give up work it would improve everything else immeasurably.

    But I'll take that on board.

    That doesn't mean giving up coffee - I gave up caffeine on the advice of my eye specialist - it just means that I have de-caf'

    sobriquet

    1. a nickname.
    QuotesAs for the sobriquet, she was no ice queen, but in the macho world of law enforcement, playing that role was the only thing that kept her safe — from men and from her own rogue impulses.

    Should be easy.
