Hiii Happy 2020 to any readers still out there!

Apologies that I haven't been drawing/posting - life has just gotten really busy lately. Everything is (mostly) good - I did have my first ocular migraine a few weeks back, which made me think I was having a stroke. That actually was going to result in a very funny post, but I seemed to have pinched a nerve in my shoulder/neck/arm which has made sitting at a computer really unmanageable for longer than I have to (which I do 8 hours a day for my job...). I'm working on it! I'll be back at some point! 

Anyway, besides that, Boyfriend's good, I'm good, the pets are good, and we're going to be moving in together this spring. Hooray! I hope you all are well too. 

In the meantime, I'm reposting the blog below in honor of the head/neck issues. If you haven't seen it before, enjoy!

So, as I wrote about last week, I had a headache the weekend before. What I didn’t blog about, though, was how it came back on Wednesday and lasted the next 4-5 days. It was mostly on the right side of my face/head (though it jumped to the left one night).

t’s also why I was less active in the blogger/twitter world, in case anyone noticed or missed me (doubtful).
On Thursday, I went to the minute clinic, and was diagnosed with either a migraine or a sinus infection or something more serious but less likely.  

I also get super woozy when we start talking about arteries or anything blood related and I almost passed out

She gave me antibiotics in case it is a weird sinus infection and sent me on my way. On Friday, my eyes were still aching and my head/neck hurt.  I saw Boyfriend.
I gave up on doctors after this experience 

I started to feel a little bit better Saturday/Sunday. The pain felt like it was coming from my neck more, so I’m thinking maybe I pulled it somehow very badly, because I googled and it looks like a neck muscle can cause pain all over one side of your head including your forehead and eye.

I’m considering going to a doctor. We’ll see.


Has this happened to anyone else? And before anyone comments with scary advice about how I’m having ministrokes  or tumors or aneurysms or any equally horrifying things, this is not accompanied by a fever or dizziness or blurred vision or nausea/vomiting or disorientation.

Thanks bunches.
