Ok. Is a 24 hour headache a bad thing? Surely that is a bit long for a headache? It was only mildly shifted by pain killers this morning, and so I have had a constant, intense pain behind my left eye since last night. So intense that the only way I can tolerate having my eyes open is to wear sunglasses all day. Inside, I mean. In an office (with the blinds drawn), in the truck (which has no windows) and in the workshop (also no windows) and with a hand over my eyes (and over the sunglasses) when walking between them in the sunlight. This is no small thing for me, as I very much mock people that wear sunglasses inside because they think that it makes them look cool. It is one of my pet hates, but it was the only way I could actually function today. The idea of driving home in the bright sunshine wasn't even worth considering.
It put me in such a horrifically bad mood at work that the boys were joking about making double sure that they didn't fuck anything up or find any broken parts today until my headache had gone. There was every chance that I would have taken any bad news somewhat less than well.
It is still there, this pain; marginally better at present, but maybe that's because it is getting dark. This is getting ridiculous. It feels like someone is squeezing the back of my left eyeball. Hard. It even hurts to shut my eye, the best thing I can do is cover it with the palm of my hand to ensure total darkness.
Ouch. Please feel free to stop hurting anytime soon, eye.
