bright light! bright light!

I'm doing something very obnoxious right now. I know it looks beyond silly, but I cannot help that. I'm trying to hide out in my cubicle, so no one has to bear witness to this, this, je ne sais quoi.

I'm wearing sunglasses... indoors. I have good reason to, however. I've been getting headaches the last couple of days, and I felt one getting bigger and more painful right before lunchtime today. I don't have any pain relievers for this ailment, so I'm left to suffer in silence. On a whim, I put my sunglasses on, and it seemed to ever-so-slightly relieve some of the achey-ness.

So there's the sensitivity to light, obviously. I don't think it's a migraine because it hasn't made me nauseated or affected my appetite at all, and the few countable occasions on which I've been blessed with an actual migraine, I was very nauseated and wouldn't dream of putting anything but copious amounts of pills in my mouth.

So right now, the headache pain is at bay. It's not as overwhelming as it was starting to feel before I popped my sunglasses on. Yes, co-workers, I know it's hilarious and atrocious all at the same time, but would you rather I go home for the day and you cover for me? I thought not.
