So I had the strangest day , and wound me up in the hospital. It's like an episode of House. I get to work today, and I have a tiny pressure on the temples of my head. Not even a headache. So I sit at my machine, and boot it up. I'm logging into systems and opening IM windows when suddenly.. My left hand disappears. The keyboard is still there, but my hand disappears. I look at my hand, and it's there again. But when I look at my hand, my left monitor disappears. I look back up, and it reappears. Strange. So I start paying attention. My keyboard begins to change. I look at the right side of the keyboard, and I see qwerty. Then I stare, and it corrects. I look at my screen, and the strangest feeling of my life comes over me ----- I can't Read. Like, I CAN'T FUCKING READ. I see characters, but they all look arabic. Just lines and dashes and curves... can't make anything out. Everything is crisp and clear. I can't read. I decide it's best to go to the hospital. Luckily, I work at a Hospital, so help is only a call away. So I begin to evaluate the situation. My blindspot (We all have blindspots) has taken over my left eye. I close my right eye and I can see - I can walk around I can do just fine - But things like _desks_, _People_, Doors and windows are literally vanishing before my eyes. I open my right eye and close my left, and I'm ok. So I go to the optometry office across town (on my bike.. right eye open) and it turns out (after lots of testing) that I had an "ocular migraine". They put drops in my eyes that numbed them (after numbing them, they scraped them with a fine needle.. which was TOTALLY skeevy) and dilated my eyes. So my eyes are , even now a good 5 hours after, totally dilated. So I'm walking around like Riddick, and I have to ride the bike back (I guess I don't HAVE to, but I figured "why not" (Second part of that, I figured "So what's a little bright light?" Well I get back, and my eyes are gushing out water, my helmet is wet and I'm in so much goddam pain I had to feel my way up the stairs)). So I got a ride home and here I am. But now that I know what this is - this is the COOLEST thing to happen to me in a long time. I can't read ! Even now I have to concentrate on what I'm typing, and not only are letters juxtapositioning, but my typing is re-mapped as well ! This is so cool ! When I type out words the correct letters come out - but they come out in the wrong order. If I look at my keyboard and type out the word (Without looking at the screen) I type out the word, but all of the letters are jumbled - even though my brain perceives it as being correct. So the migraine is starting to go away, and I can sort of make out what I'mtyping (It's really blurry but I can track letters as they appear (Thus as why I can type now but not read what someone else types) . I have to stare at the screen and piece shit together. So now Reading english is as difficult to me as readin gGerman or French. This is SO odd. Everything else is ok. No pain from the migraine.
