Out of the Blue

I went to the eye doctor yesterday, as the lenses in my glasses are so scratched they are becoming a problem. I also had a worrisome medical question about my vision that I thought I'd put to him as a precursor to asking my M.D. about it, and he was able to provide an answer. I've had a couple of incidents where I suffered brief periods of impaired vision, sort of like you'd get from looking at a bright light and then looking away. This was worrisome, to say the least, but his diagnosis was about as benign as I could have hoped, as he explained I've been suffering what are known as Ocular Migraines. These are apparently actual migraines, but the good news, and the reason I consider this somewhat benign, is because these are not accompanied by any pain, and they have been brief in duration as well as infrequent, so this is not really a problem that needs much solving. This is in contrast to the kind of scenarios that ran through my mind when encountering this, as I suffered some Woody Allen-style concerns about things like blindness and brain tumors, so this is obviously a relief.

Whatever, obviously food preferences vary widely. There are plenty of things lots of people eat that I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole. The prevalence of KFC would seem to indicate plenty of people like it. I personally think it's "okay". Been a long time since I've had anything there except the chicken strips which I cutup and add to white rice.

Fast food place I avoid -- Long John Silver's. Never eaten at one, and at this point I'd just rather keep my streak going...

Good to hear you're okay, Blue. Weird stuff going on with your eyes/vision is always scary as hell.

Yeah, (don't) google that. Pretty much any condition can lead to death.
