She and I have such fun with photography. As I was taking photos of her, she decided to "take a bow" all on her own. I think it was a wonderful expression of gratitude for the beauty around us.
Then, we started riding, and I felt a dark cloud descending on me. My mood became terrible. I've learned that this dramatic mood change almost always precedes an aura and a migraine. Sure enough, before too long, the shimmering lights of an aura started dancing through my vision. I sat on the forest floor and gulped down my migraine medicine. The medicine makers really need to make the package easier to open for people who have glittering lights obscuring their visual field.
The medicine just tempers the migraine but doesn't make me feel normal. I spent the rest of the day in a fog, feeling sick and also angry at this demon that won't leave me alone.
Let's hope that it's a one-day event, and life will look cheery again very soon.
