Ouch

The weather changed again, warm to cool. Which meant I got a migraine yesterday, which also meant that I got my vague feeling of pre-migraine unease. Normally I use this as an excuse to lie down early and read comics or something, but yesterday I thought I'd collect my prescription first.

And I discovered why this is a bad idea.

Slightly trippy games with suddenly shifting perspective are fine at home, not so much when walking down the street talking on the mobile. Suddenly I was flat on my face with the wind knocked out of me and a sense of having had a moment of serious confusion.

Luckily, nothing broken and no serious cuts or scrapes. Just the sort of grazes on knees and elbows you get when very small, and a general sense of having been hit very hard with a mallet.

Going to bed with migraine was no fun, nor was having a bath, or trying to write.

I am very grumpy and have discovered a dumb thing I SHALL NEVER DO AGAIN.
